Food is healthy, fresh and cooked to order. Many things to choose from on the menu. Great large outdoor patio. Excellent service. The kitchen was behind and 2 orders from our party of 10 slipped through the cracks. Multiple people from BCB apologized for the error and worked to make it right. Favorites included: Chicken Salad, French Ham & Cheese, Mozzarella/Tomato/Basil sandwiches; Tahini salad; tomato soup; and of course bakery items! Café parking spots are limited so give yourself a bit of time (and patience) to find a place on the street.

We went for breakfast and enjoyed the food. It is not a sit down and take your order place. The menu ranges from french toast to a nice selection of omelets and breakfast (biscuit) sandwiches. My french toast was well prepared and the taste was good. My wife had a nice sized omelet with the usual sides and my son had a breakfast sandwich. The food hit the spot.

The place has a large patio and WiFi and may be a place for the college students to hangout and study (OK maybe just hangout).

If you want a good breakfast it is a good place to check-out.

Yummy food, friendly staff, great outdoor patio. One of my favorite places to take my 2 year old. She can draw with the sidewalk chalk and feed the birdies while we eat outside and they have some great kids menu items.

I like the bread and the various deserts. Food is usually good. Breakfast at BCB can be very good.
It is a favorite with the college students.

I have been here for lunch and brunch. I love their brunch menu and the food has always been really good. I think the burger is my fav, which is crazy because I am not really a burger person.
