Great little place for coffee, bakery goods, and full breakfast. We had the spinach omelet plates which were great and on the way out we had to try the lemon and pecan bars and the orange cupcake..... Of course to go.

Staff was very friendly also has a nice patio area that welcomes your pets!

Long wait for a small amount of overpriced average food. Nice atmosphere on patio, but not worth it.

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.
