The sandwiches here are hands-down, the best I have ever had at any restaurant, ever. Healthy, natural ingredients, and such amazing flavor! Bread and Chocolate, will you open other restaurants, beginning in Denver, please?

I wish we had discovered this place on our first day rather than our last, all the food is home made - the chocolate cake is incredible!

I heard a lot of people raving about this place, but felt my breakfast was pretty average. Unfortunately they were super busy but they're only small so it felt really overcrowded. I ordered the small granola after having had massive granola bowls from their competitor around the corner (Cafe Rico) but it was so tiny, about the size of a... More

As per usual Bread and Chocolate doesn't disappoint. The service is fantastic and the food is delicious, fresh and well presented. Thanks Tom and crew for another yummy breakfast.

All natural breakfast and lunch, with dizzying chocolate delights from local beaneries. Lucious gazpacho, jerk chicken bbq sandwich on house-baked whole grain bread. Came back for breakfast and loved the fruit shakes and chocolate cake (for breakfast? Yeah, it's my birthday, whatsamatta you?) Closed Monday and Tuesday.

Bread and chocolate is a little gem if your missing American cafe style food. :) The brownies are fabulous, just under two bucks for a dense delicious brownies, mint, walnut, cacao nibs, and a new one with walnuts and oatmeal. The cookies are good too. Try the ginger for sure. Muffins are great. Lemon poppyseed and carrot are my favourites.

We ate here several times during our week in Puerto Viejo. Everything we had was terrific, service can sometimes be slow... but hey you are on vacation! The baked goods are delicious but a bit pricey.

We stopped in here early in the day and were still pretty full from breakfast, so all we had was a couple of tasty lemonades and a sampler of 5 truffles. The lemonades were so refreshing on a very hot morning, and the chocolates were sooooo good. In fact, all of the food coming out of the kitchen looked delicious.... More

We came here for lunch one day in Puerto Viejo, and shared a vegie sandwich, which was delicious. As well as bread and chocolate, heaps of things on the menu are homemade. Big selection of brownies, cookies and cakes look delectable. Also homemade truffles and chocolates, would definitely be back to try some of them!

For those who want to eat like the locals, this is not the place. But for those who want an amazing homemade bagel and egg sandwich or granola with yogurt and fresh fruit, this is the place. The coffee is fantastic, service excellent and food was wonderful! They also have homemade chocolates, brownies, breads, and so much more to offer!
