Best chocolate almond croissants in U.S.

First, this bakery is now called "Terra Momo" it seems. That's what the sign was on the front. But it has all the same things mentioned in these good reviews: flaky, Parisian-style croissants that melt in your mouth. When I lived in Paris, I went everyday to a little bakery that had the incredible... read more

A few years ago, I spent some time in Paris. While I was there I developed a passion for chocolate croissants prepared the way they are in Paris. I came back to the states and ended up spending some time in Princeton where I stopped by the Witherspoon bread company for something to eat for breakfast. They had a wonderful... More

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.
