Thanks to Bread and Chocolate, we were able to send a delicious, surprise treat to our quinnipiac student. They made ordering and delivery easy, and she loved the treats.

Went in for something small to eat for breakfast and ended up with a very good breakfast. Omelet was great, and packed with frech veggies. Coffee was good too. Definitely going to stop again next time we are in town.
