“Great Bakery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Made the mistake of taking home (PA) a box of these pastries for my mother over Christmas and am now probably won't be allowed back in the house next time if I don't have a new box for her. Good selection of pastries and breads and haven't had a bad thing yet. According to mom, "the sticky buns are to die for..."

“Come for the bread, skip the pastries”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

For the finest artisan bread in Providence this is the place. French country or sourdough (skip the baguette, it's not like Paris) to name just two of my favorites. Have them slice it or take the whole loaf to savor thick slices with a winter veggie soup. Oh, and skip the pastries. They tend to the large (read massive) size and a bit heavy on the sugar -- not that I can blame them since that's what most americans like/expect: big and sugary and lots of it.

“Forget about Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

When in the area, this is the best place to enjoy a cup of fresh brewed coffee and tasty (but fattening) baked products. Nice atmosphere. Varied assortment of patrons

“Coffee service is S...L....O......W”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

Great place but not organized well. Lot of people work there but 1 at the coffee station. Always a long wait to get your drinks.
If you need your coffee to go don't stop there it will take for ever!

“Best bread in Providence!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

This East Side neighborhood spot features the best bread in Providence, and that is saying something, considering all the wonderful Italian bakeries that abound in this city! My favorite is the olive stick, but there are at least a dozen other varieties, and all we have sampled have been outstanding. The pastries are special and varied as well, and one can get any kind of coffee or tea at the quaint bar. The atmosphere is typical East Side and redolent of Brown University, but one also sees children in strollers and girls from nearby Lincoln School with their mothers. It is not unusual to be sharing a long table with a teacher correcting papers over a latte, or a pre-teen gazing at a Shakespeare web site on a laptop. Wonderful, special place.
