“Love The Breads”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Coffee is good and the service is friendly. The baked goods are wonderful. Usually have the French toast and have never been disappointed.

“Loosing luster”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

Unfortunately the reputation of chocolate and bread exceeds it's deliverables. Service is friendly and polite but underwhelming as regards product. The decor is circa 1990 and the great dishes that made the name appear to have been removed from the menu. It is still a solid restaurant and a great experience in Old Town, but not comparable to what one will find in New Orleans or New York.

“Quaint”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013 via mobile

I went in for coffee and ended up getting the eggs Benedict as well. Both were perfect! Service was quick considering I'd ordered poached eggs.

“Go next door!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

This is an overpriced, overcrowded, and outdated restaurant. The decor is appaling, the food is sub par, and the staff is lax. I would not go back again, especially since the restraunt on the adjacent corner, Le Pain, is so amazing. We went with a large group eager to run in and run out. Note: not everything contains bread or chocolate, many contain neither.
