“== overpriced ==”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

The bread is delicious, but the sandwiches are much overpriced.

A good example is the 'Italian': ONE very thin slice of prosciutto, some cream cheese, several very thick slices of cucumber and some other veggies. It was much closer to a vegetarian dish.

I estimate the food costs 17% . . . very profitable, too profitable, and thus overpriced.

The expensive patisserie is quite good, but the coffee was average at best. Gio Bean (very comfortable) and Valoroso (awful stools) offer much better espresso etc.

Thx for the review. All sandwiches are priced according to quality and cost of ingredients.
Perhaps a Montreal smoked meat sandwich would be more to your liking with 6 oz of sliced beef on every sandwich stacked high!
Bread co coffee is made using locally roasted organic Cherry hill coffee for freshness and sustainability. There are cheaper alternatives but we stand by our commitment to fresh and locally sourced ingredients.

“Good food but blah atmosphere and service”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

Every food or baked item I've had here is really good, which keeps me coming back. However, the service is consistently mediocre. I feel like the staff do the bare minimum, but there's no smile or enjoyment. It seems like they all hate their jobs, and makes the place unwelcoming and uncomfortable. I've worked in many customer service jobs and would never have gotten away with showing so little enthusiasm. Try smiling! (Or quit if you hate your job so much!)

“Lot of variety, really good frittata”
Reviewed May 13, 2013 via mobile

I had breakfast at the bread company with a co worker
I had the ham and havarti frittata
It came with 4 large potions of egg, large homemade hash browns, and really great sour dough bread. All this for $10
Cannot wait to try lunch and some of the nice looking breads and deserts.

“Comfortable, homey, and delicious!”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Went there for breakfast and had fast friendly service followed by a breakfast to die for! Lots of food for a decent price. Try the eggs Benedict and the traditional breakfast!
