“Wonderful staff - Poor quality food”
Review of Swissbakers

Swissbakers
Ranked #1 of 4 Bakeries in Reading

Reviewed September 9, 2011

The owner recognized my Swiss Army knife attached to my key chain and we immediately hit it off talking about our love of Luzern. It breaks my heart, but I have to be honest and say the rolls were too small and over baked. More importantly a truly good croissant is made with flakey crust. This is involved and time consuming. If you don't get it right the rolls turn out like plain bread. This was the case for the three varieties I tried. The fillings were very tasty mind you, but the "croissants" were just not made as light and flakey as a professional native Swiss baker ought to know and should correct immediately.
Agsin, the family was a delight to talk to and I wish them well.

Wonderful selection of authentic Swiss/European baked goods, from Linzer Torte to their versions of doughnuts, croissants, along with very good homemade soups and sandwiches on pretzel bread, whole grain, etc. and a decent cup of coffee. Chocolate croissant can be addictive. Owners are nice folks and very helpful. My understanding that they obtained American citizenship last year! We are there at least once a week!
