I meet friends here regularly because the sweets are sooo good and the coffee is great too. They have a lovely sidewalk space in good weather and the inside is well decorated and fresh. You can buy a loaf of bread to take home too.

This is a good place to stop in for pastry, coffee or a nice salad. Very low key. Food is general fresh - nothing great, but not bad either.

We've been going to Bread and Chocolate for 35 years and, though we now live in North Carolina, we still enjoy breakfast there when we're in town. Maybe it's because we've enjoyed the same staff all these or I have my favorite birchermuesli every time...More

I visited this outfit twice in October. Service was iffy on both occasions with either princess waitstaff types or just not particularly interested in working there. I mean, if I want rude and condescending attitude I can get plenty of that at places whose food...More
