4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed yesterday NEW

I had lunch here for the first time today. While I found the menu somewhat small, the half salad I ordered was still quite large, full of toppings and flavor.

Best croissants this side of Paris. Great baguette sandwich with fresh mozzarella prosciutto and a tomato pesto to die for. Salads are pretty darn good too.

Go eat here for breakfast. I'm sure there are other reasons to come here - the bread, the coffee, the letter-pressed cards on sale - but the breakfast we had here was some of the best breakfast dishes we've had in years. The cinnamon bun we started with was the size of my head and ludicrously good, but we ended... More

These guys get up early, because sometimes I get there just as it opens for breakfast, and there ls already a booming business of baked goods (bread, muffins, croissants, quiches) headed to other places downtown. Uniformly good ... great service ... lots of choices ... many of which are made with butter and flour and sugar ... plus good coffee... More

This place is off the charts. Small very clean restaurant making way more than great bread. I ordered Croque Madame which was amazing. My Wife ordered the (house) smoked salmon sandwich that was probably the best thing on the table. Our friends each had the quiche. Everyone was oooing and ahhing throughout the meal. Left with arms full of bread.... More

We were looking for a small cafe we saw the last time we were in town that was near the courthouse. We didn't find that, but we did find this cafe and am I glad we did. Fresh baked apple turnover, margarita cheesecake that was so amazing, chocolate croissant and a chocolate eclair. Everything was outstanding as was the French... More

The staff was very friendly. The food was excellent. And the smoked salmon, specifically, was terrific.

I live in Roanoke and eat here for lunch frequently. The salads are enormous, fresh and delicious. Their house dressing is a basil vinaigrette, which is tasty. I also love their coconut cream croissants and their roasted vegetable flatbread sandwich. This place works well for vegetarians and meat-eaters alike.

This place couldn't disappoint, even if it tried. We started with drip coffee which was great. I like creamer in mine and they used Homestead Creamery cream, only the best! We first munched on a double chocolate scone and a HEFTY slice of cinnamon raisin bread drizzled in icing. Our main breakfast dish took about 20 minutes, we were told... More

It is our goal to introduce the Roanoke area to our style of baking. There is a simple joy in eating a loaf of bread made fresh daily and not loaded down with preservatives to make it last for weeks as it travels from one part of the country to another. Our bread is fresh and local.The hard crust provides satisfaction of eating something substantial.And the soft yet firm crumb contrasts the mouth-
