We went here several mornings for pastries. Everything is delicious. The chocolate chip cookies hot and ready at 9 am are amazing. Also had their arugula salad for lunch which was delicious. The staff is terrific!

Salads, soups, sandwiches and baked goods - all are very popular here and the ambiance is always pleasant but sometimes a little noisy. Eat well and then buy a book or a card - you'll be in good company.

I had gotten a rave review from a friend. That friend and I are on the fence now, because I cannot understand what the hype is over this place. The service is below par. It would be great to see a smile on someones face there. The food feels like its frozen and reheated. If you sit at a table... More

The best thing about Atticus is that they make just about everything they serve -- bread, soups, baked goods, salad dressings. The food is consistently good and is made with high-quality ingredients. It doesn't hurt that it has a nice bookstore as well, with knowledgeable and helpful staff. It's small, but they will happily order anything you like. It's a... More

Enjoyed some time perusing the wonderful books, greeting cards and more in this quaint little shop! Then enjoyed a delicious lunch in the café! Broccoli Quiche was very tasty and a generous portion. Chabaso bakery baked goods - many options for treats and lunch / breakfast! Can't go wrong! When your belly is full here, jump across the street to... More

A great place to stop for a coffee and a nosh -- especially if you are also visiting the Yale British Museum next door. Nothing fancy, but a great spot to catch your breath. You can browse the books as well.

I loved that half of the shop has a library with the ceiling as part of a greenhouse...am I making any sense? But view is scenic to the streets of downtown New Haven. It has a cozy effect. And the food was great overall. I've only been here once, but I'll try to stop by more often

My favorite place for coffee, salad, soups. Their baked goods are fabulous, try the breads, cookies, or pastries. Great place to shop for unusual book titles, unique cards or gifts.

We love to go to Atticus for Lunch. Conveniently located in front of the Yale Art Gallery, at the corner of Chapel and High Street, Atticus is a great bakery, a fun Bookstore and most importantly a fun place to go to lunch. It works for all kind of lunches, fun lunches with the girlfriends, romantic lunches with a date,... More
