We stopped in here for a break from our shopping. Everything was delicious! Many treats to choose from. Only complaint that kept it from 5 stars is that we could not find a single table that had been cleaned up to sit down, despite the fact that the majority of tables were empty. We ended up cleaning up our own... More

We stopped here for breakfast twice while visiting Alexandria for New Year's. Everything was very good, but I enjoyed the vegetable omelet most, along with the potato pancakes, which were delicious. Friendly, professional service and reasonable prices, plus the restaurant is in the heart of Old Town.

You can certainly get tired and thirsty if you spend a few hours at the Mamoth Art Center the Torpedo Factory. Luckily Bread and Chocolate has been there for more than 25 years. The coffee and hot chocolate are both very good and the breads and pastries are even better. I dare you to go to the art center and... More

I recently ate for the first time at this establishment and I was a little underwhelmed. I ordered a lentil soup that tasted fine and came with three kinds of bread that were a little dry. It was not a great meal, but OK. My friend ordered a panini that took a long time to prepare and still arrived cold.... More

Fun place for tea, coffee and a snack, we ate outside and enjoyed the weather and people walking by. Good onion soup, good pastries, and good bread.

We had the all-inclusive brunch which included an entreé, a basket of pastries, juice and coffee. That was $16, which is a great price for brunch. The food was plentiful but in terms of flavor it was just okay. There was nothing memorable about it and the service was so-so. It is by no means a bad breakfast option, just... More

This used to be a great little bakery and place to grab a quick bite but a recent visit took it off my list. The brioche for the sandwich was very dry and did not appear to have been baked that day. In addition the display case, the last several times I have been in to buy baked goods, looks... More

My wife and I absolutely enjoyed this stop. My wife had the turkey hash and I had the berry French toast. The food was as close to perfect as it could be and the service was great. We highly recommend a visit to support this local business.

This is a restaurant on King St, Alexandria VA, that serves breakfast and lunch. They also have muffins, pastries, and cakes that you can buy to- go. I had a blueberry muffin, which was fresh and had a fair amount of blueberries. It was good but nothing out of the ordinary. My wife got a ham & cheese pancake wrap,... More

While the family was vacationing near DC, my wife and her dad went off to see the sights, so my daughter (2 1/2 years old) and I went out to take a stroll and get a bite to eat. I figured based on the name that this place would be a hit. The inside is quaint. It's not much more... More
