Jackson really only boasts a handful of cafes, and this is the only one that comes close to what travelers would recognize as an Au Bon Pain. They specialize in bakery items, including wonderful breads that offer a selection that is otherwise absent for hundreds of miles (french, ciabatta, sourdough, rye, foccacia, and others - all offered whole or sliced). They also sell a good variety of hard to find cheeses, like buffalo mozzarella actually in water, Welsh soft cheese, several goat cheeses, a few bries, nice cheddars, and some good Italian standards like parmesan and asiago.

The restaurant items are very good, including vegetarian fare and some local favorites like grilled catfish. Their breakfasts are very good, whether you like eggs and bacon or croissant. The food is consistently well prepared and nicely plated. Good value for the money.

Their espresso drinks are made by baristas that have never had an espresso, so don't expect a good foam or well balanced amount of flavored syrup; they are deli counter workers asked to man the espresso machine and have no love of coffee (this disgruntled assessment comes after drinking literally dozens of sub-par concoctions; I refuse to give up on finding a good latte in Jackson - which you can usually get at Cups, another local cafe).

Broad Street Baking Company is a great cafe' and fills a much needed niche in Jackson. Travelers will find its fare familiar, tasty, and well priced.

Broad Street Baking Company is a great place for breakfast, brunch, or lunch. They make fresh breads and pastries daily, and their quiches and soups are mouthwatering. (They also make a mean Mediterranean pizza and a variety of salads and sandwiches.) For lunch, get there early, before the rush, as tables can be limited.
