What a great place this turned out to be! It was recommended to us by the folks as the Jaguar Rescue Center. The food was absolutely fantastic! It's tucked away on a little side street and we just stumbled over it but were so glad we found it. When we walked it there was only one other couple but by... More

Wonderful food, home-made breads, superb coffee. Always full, but worth the wait. There is a reason they are full! Every time we come to the area this is where we stop first.

The Caribbean pancakes made with banana and coconut and served with honey were the best pancakes I have ever had. Eggs and home fries were very good as well. Coffee is served in individual French presses along with warmed milk. Yum

I went to Bread and Chocolate for dessert and I was amazed. They had a great selection of food but I couldn't get past how good the chocolate brownies were. If you are in the area this is a must visit!

loved our visit to this bakery/restaurant. Organic, fresh and delicious. Cheerful, helpful servers Answered questions knowledgeably. Individual French -pressed coffee is unique and very good. I had the fruit/yogurt/granola dish......the granola was warm and fresh, the yogurt was homemade, and the fruit was plentiful. My husband really enjoyed his French toast served with fresh cream and homemade strawberry jam. We'd... More

We were here for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed it, the sandwiches were great and the drinks were fantastic. As an added bonus, we enjoyed the company of a lime green iguana.

This place is great, not just the breakfast stuff but also the best chocalate brownies I've ever had. Since trying out this place we start every morning here. They make the bread, jam, etc. themselves and everything is super fresh and healthy.

Stopped in for lunch and ordered a veggie sandwich and jerk chicken sandwich along with homemade lemonade and ice tea. The drinks were great and the food portions were huge. The veggie sandwich was a bit bland and the jerk chicken sandwich was good, although I thought is was missing something (toast the bread maybe?). Overall a nice spot and... More

Everybody in our group LOVED this place. I and my husband on the other hand were not as "enthused." Cons first: Their coffee is not good. Now we drink our black with no sugar and no cream. It isn't Caribeans coffee and you can tell. Also I'm g-free. They have one thing on the menu that is g-free. Pros: Patio... More
