Tivoli has excellent pastries and good coffee. The service is good. I would recommend it if you look for a quick bite early in the morning. They also have sandwiches but i have not tried them.

After management changed, my visits were few and far between, However, I gave it another try and I was not totally disappointed. The individual cake portions are generous and tasty. Croissants could be improved, in both texture and presentation. Small cookies were very good. You could also enjoy a good expreso but services is not up to par.,

I love this shop. The pastries are fabulous . It is like being in a French pastry store. Rich, decadent cakes, tarts, pies, napoleons etc etc. They also sell cookies and chocolate gift boxes. Fairly large assortment of wines, champagnes. Lots of delicious food items but I ever seem to get past the pastry. Conveniently locate right at the Ballston... More

Excellent selection of pastries - great find near Ballston station if you want something sweet or have to pick up something if you're heading for a party. Also has a great craft beer and wine selection.

In addition to freshly brewed rich coffee, the Tivoli boasts a great assortment of fine pastries. Their Napoleon is among the best I've had in a dozen countries, including several in Europe.

Had a meeting at the hotel next door and needed a quick bite to eat and some caffeine. This place was so cute, delicious looking pastries and quick service with lots of options. Their breakfast burrito was delicious and reasonably priced. Would absolutely stop in again, just regretting I didn't get a chance to try a pastry before leaving.

I really like Tivoli. I never tried their sandwiches but they have great pastries and also healthier options like yogurt and juices. Staff is always friendly and prices are right. Highly recommend it.

I write today to sing the praises of the "almond crescent" cookie of Tivoli Bakery ! I have long enjoyed Italian cookies, visiting Vaccaro's during day trips to Baltimore, and mourning when their two DC locations closed. My interest was reignited following a trip to New Orleans and a visit to Brocato's Bakery...so I wandered into Tivoli and was rewarded... More

Love the salads and deli case options! Also great coffee! More of a place to stop for something quick such as a snack or light lunch.
