The pastries here are killer. They can be a little pricey, but they're a fair value considering the size. You can't go wrong with those. The sandwiches are European. Not much filling, but very tasty.

Always look forward to a visit to the bakery for Princetonians. Nice variety, excellent quality, and warm service. If you like bread but are generally unsatisfied in the US, this is your shop!

In tons of varieties, and since it is made fresh daily, you never have to worry about day old... The European sandwiches are tasty.

This is our go to bread store. A small shop across from the Public Library. They have a wonderful assortment of freshly baked breads, pastries and desserts. The smell will lure you in. The taste and texture will keep you coming back for more. A great Sunday morning is a coffee from Small World Coffee, a croissant from the Bread... More

It is great to have a real bakery in town with a broad array of options. Brioche are rich and delicious. Coffee is good too.

Walking through the front door takes you back to home and homemade breads. Many fine choices of breads and other items. Visit here everytime we make the trip to Princeton.

I LOVE this place! Have enjoyed morning sweet bread treats -- where else can you find brioche? -- and coffee, sandwiches in or take-out, and breads to go. Great way to take home a taste of Mediterra restaurant, as I no longer live in the area and so buy their oils and spice mixes to take back home. Only complaint... More

European husband demands fresh bread daily. This is the only bakery in Princeton. It serves decent challah, whole-seed rye, croissants. If you are in the mood for a fabulous dessert try the chocolate creme eclairs or the apricot tart. Sandwiches are very good for in the car, picnic or on the run.
