My wife and I ate here twice on a recent trip to Alexandria! The omelets were the reason. In addition there was great service.

When look for options besides the greasys.. This is a definite option.
Taste and style are all here in the food.
Quality is obvious with freshness and presentation of the plates a real experience. Overall a very nice and comfortable experience.

Bakery experience with high top and communal tables. Bread is exceptional and you just cannot get enough! Great for breakfast, brunch, or lunch!

I had lunch here with some friends today. It took over half an hour just for the waitress to take our drink orders. All the street parking around here is limited to 2 hours. We were all waiting on our checks and concerned about getting parking tickets because the meters had run out. The food was good, but I wasn't overly impressed with the menu. Plenty of other great restaurants in Old Town.

Like so many of our reviewers, we were surprised to discover that this is a chain. It feels (intentionally) like a small neighborhood bakery with an international staff and menu. Low key and efficient, our wait person had our orders in front of us in an instant. We had a pleasant, hearty, and quiet breakfast and friendly conversation with a visitor sitting nearby. They do seem to want to convey a communal image; I think they have two twenty-four-foot tables for friendly and/or friends' gatherings. The wall of rustic bread loaves is irresistible, and yes, we left with an armload that lasted for most of our visit to the area. Oh, we left our maps and brochures on the table, returned after a bit to find that our wait person had saved them for us--very gracious.
