Pastries are wonderful and the breads even better. Small place. Nice location, especially for commuters taking the train into Boston. Have always found the staff pleasant and helpful.

I was so relieved to see another review mention the owner, Thomas. What an arrogant man! I had bought a Berliner for my son, who took one bite and mentioned how oily it was. The owner heard him as we were sitting in the uncomfortably close seats inside the establishment, and he proceeded to give my son a speech about... More

This little spot of Swiss Heaven is right at the Reading train station. A must visit for a ride into the city, but also a great place to pick up pastries for home or work. They offer a variety of unusual pastries and they are wonderful. The people are really nice as well and parking is easy

The atmosphere is always upbeat, cheerful staff and delicious food. We haven't had a bad thing yet. The pretzel products are great. Berliners delicious. Seeded Pajazzo bread is so authentic and Chocolate Weggli are a favorite! It is nice to have such a good bakery in town.
