“Best Lunch in Hamden”

Bread and Chocolate
Ranked #1 of 8 Bakeries in Hamden
Restaurant details
Reviewed June 17, 2014

My office is very close to Bread and Chocolate. I can view their menu online, call and order, walk across the street and back in less than 5 minutes. Outstanding soup, salads and sandwiches. And they are a major bread maker for the area, so their breads and pastries are always fresh and delicious.

If a small local restaurant is packed, with a line out the door, you know it will be good. This is a small place, very informal, with, for example, many happy seniors enjoying a light lunch (salads, soups, sandwiches and cakes). Don't expect a high level of sophistication but there's no need to worry about high prices either. Nice people, nice customers, nice food and nice prices. What's not to like?

Bread and Chocolate is one of our favorite places to grab a sandwich (on delicious, homemade bread), soup, and/or a pastry. Their croissants are out of this world and so are their scones. The owners are lovely people and this cafe has a very welcoming feel.

We live in the neighborhood and spend a lot of time at Bread & Chocolate. We can walk there from our house and my 2 year old loves their scones and I would kill for a cup of their coffee. They are unfailingly kind to us and over time have become a solid part of our lives. We also get lunch there on a fairly regularly basis, I love the variety of their specials and since it's always made to order, they will
Custom make anything in their menu OR suggest something that might suit your taste. They have recently started offering vegan pastry that are pretty good too. I've always found the place to be very clean and they have expanded the dining area and put in a family style dining table to accommodate the large groups thy seem to meet there. Love them.
