Do not bother to pick up croissants, etc from here. The only butter that you will find in these croissants will be the butter you put on them yourself. Talk about disappointed - everything I bought from here was dry and horrible. Go to Trader Joe's and pick up their frozen almond croissants and they far surpass these. I would... More

I purchased a Groupon for SwissBakers and redeemed it today. I selected a bacon quiche,(for tonight's dinner) several chocolate croissants, macaroons, choco Berliner ( a light donut) and a loaf of Swiss cinnamon bread and a tuna sandwich on a pretzel roll. I have frozen several of the items, but the sandwich and the Berliners. Both were excellent. The Reading... More

I take the train and Swiss Bakers is right at the station. The servers are very friendly , the coffee is good, and the baked goods are outstanding! The ham and Swiss croissant (and the spinach and cheese croissant) are outstanding - they bake them on the spot and they are warm and crispy and delicious. The other pastries seem... More

I researched the town I went to and this place came up. Being from Germany I am always in search of some good pastries. I was not disappointed. The worst part about it is to decide which pastry to get. Luckily we were two and each got two different things. We tried the almond croissant, a Choco Weggli, and two... More

My husband and I had been craving an almond croissant and I was thrilled to see that SwissBakers had them at the Andover Farmer's Market. After getting my hair done I bought two croissants and rushed home to share with my hubby. I am not sure how to describe the worst croissant I have ever had so I won't even... More

Christmas week and I get in the wrong train and now I am stuck in Reading. I decide to walk in to this little bakery at the train station as I wait for the next train - what a pleasant surprise! The staff were so warm and welcoming! Their pastries are so delicious! The pretzels are possibly the best I've... More

SwissBakers is to be commended for their first-rate food and impeccable professional service for all their catering. Their Reading cafe is quaint and most enjoyable.

This small cafe in the Reading train station actually does a large catering business and has summer farmers markets. All of the food is made fresh daily and is made with quality ingredients! The soups and sandwiches are great! I also like the pastries and cookies. They are well known in town for their pretzels!!
