We love this place! Weekend routine includes a bike ride to town to get farmers market staples and a leisurely sojourn at 222 bakery to enjoy pastries and coffee while watching the townspeople walk past. The owner/baker has perfected her craft. The take-home sourdough bread is fantastic. I stopped in on a Friday to try the pizza special (Fri only)... More

I was so pleased to find out that there is one bakery in Edwardsville really knows how to make appropriate baguette. I always come to pick one or two on Saturday morning. It is so good that you can't keep your hand off of it, you just want to tear a piece and eat it right there. Take a stroll... More

This place even though very small is possibly the best bakery in Greater St. Louis. The young woman who is the baker, owner and the boss apparently works countless hours to achieve her own high standards in coffees, sandwiches, soups and the Friday pizza fare. The dilemma is that 222 Artisan Bakery cannot accommodate more patrons (the seating is limited),... More

A few weeks ago we wandered into 222 and ordered a few pastries to take home. Almost as an afterthought, we also ordered a cinnamon roll. The pastries were wonderful ... But the cinnamon roll was amazing! After years of being disappointed by dry, tasteless cinnamon rolls, we felt as if we hit the jackpot! The 222 cinnamon roll was... More

The ham and cheese and salami and cheese croissants are the best!!! Great coffee and good pizza on Fridays. Love the locally owned and hometown coffee shop feel rather than Starbucks.

I bought several pastries but I have friends who stop in here every day for their daily coffee and a pastry. The pastries are delicious!

Sold out of practically everything. Could not order one food menu item without making some kind of substitution. And it was dirty. Won't be back.

In my honest opinion, there are 2 things that a bakery must do well in order to be considered worthy of recommending. Make great bread, have a good selection of sandwiches, and serve fantastic coffee. Okay, 3 things. And by those 3 earmarks, 222 Artisan Bakery in Edwardsville clears the bar easily. I've stopped by this place many times, but... More

This bakery would earn 5 stars if only it were larger. The seating is way too cozy to be comfortable. The pastries melt in your mouth. They have a great deal for those with their own cups--a large latte for the price of a small or a free cup of coffee with the purchase of a pastry.

The croissants are unbelievably good! It's expensive for what it is, but the selection and quality of the bakery items are very good. Worth a try!
