A wonderful café-like atmosphere, intimate, smells divine, the most wonderful breads. There are any number of menu choices, and the staff is eager to please. Check it out.

Their French Onion soup with cheese is great. It's my go to when the weather is cold. They make really good muffins as well. Always enjoy their blueberry muffin. Coffee decent and hot chocolate is superb. Breads are excellent. Brownies are OK but nothing special. Bread pudding is very good. Tasty salads and sandwhiches. Basically, nice place to sit, sip,...

Food is excellent, nice selection of items and daily specials. Considering the name Bread and Chocolate you would think there would be lots of chocolate. They do carry some chocolate but not many. Clean and well maintained. Service is quick once order is placed. Cashier not so friendly. She wasn't overly rude but a smile would have went well with... More

Great for Pastries and cakes like to go there when I don't know what to bring to someone house. They have all kinds of cakes, pastries, cupcakes basically any desserts.

Love their salads, fresh and delicious combinations. I think they are a bit pricey but it is a healthful treat. I enjoy their specials but are only offered on week days. Their spinach salad with grilled chicken is quite good.

This place is amazing. I had the most delicious panini here. Not only are the sandwiches so fresh and amazing.... But the baked breads and desserts are fantastic too. Love coming here. Wish they were open later!

Pulled into the parking lot at 11 am and we were standing at the counter a minute later looking at the menu. We were promptly turned away for breakfast that we were really looking forward to. Thought the management could have been more flexible and allow a little more wiggle room than that. Ended up going to a place up... More

I enjoy coming here for a lunch with friends. The food is always good so you can't go wrong with anything. I love their french onion soup with a sandwich. Their desserts are good and if you're looking for a rich hot drink (especially during winter) try their hot chocolate. Its so good!

I picked up a pastrami Panini for lunch today. When I got home it was still warm and smelled good. But as soon as I bit into it - crunch! The meat was tough like it had been cut out of the wrong part of the pastrami. I bit again but couldn't bite through the sandwich. I opened it up... More
