We called in here for a coffee and a hot chocolate, and gave our order as me sat down. After 10' several other customers had been served, but they had not even started making our drinks, so we left. I guess they are only interested in customers who want to eat.

I got three small desserts to go and they were average. The chocolate cheesecake was the best and is 5 stars. It was smooth with the right amount of chocolate without being overpowering. The key lime tart was very tasty, just like key lime pie should taste, but I give it only 3 stars because it is over priced for... More

The food is different and excellent. Be daring and try something you never had before. I did, and was very pleased, specially the German styled pancakes

They have the most delicious pastries I have found on King Street. Their egg dishes and special pancakes are also delicious.

We discovered Bread & Chocolate by accident on the last morning of a week long visit to the DC area. We needed to leave early for the airport and walked up the street form where we were staying to see what might be open. This café was, and we went in and discovered that it is nicely decorated and comfortable,... More

The service was great- Chris knew a lot about their products other than the ones I ate LOL. I had the dulce de leche otherwise known as the caramel cake AND a chocolate cupcake with cappucino buttercream frosting. Both were bad. The dulce de leche cake did not have enough caramel and the butter cream frosting on the cupcake tasted... More

I like the Bread & Chocolate in Old Town, Alexandria because it is an none presumptuous cafe. It has the simple elegance of a European cafe, without the hefty price tag. They have a wide range of homemade pastries and cakes, but for those who prefer a more robust meal you can order from a variety of menu items (Some... More

The sausage, egg on croissant sandwich is buttery and flavorful. Yukon gold potatoes are on the side and they bring you a basket of baked bread while you're waiting. Lots of sandwiches to choose from such as captures , cordon bleu, southwestern and more. Two French linen covered bistro tables out front and in the midst of shops. I'll be... More
