I had not heard of this place before last week. I was so happy I stopped in! Almond croissants were awesome!! They are the flatter version, (like Panera's chocolate croissants) which allows for a great topping of almonds, powdered sugar and some honey maybe? Either way they are filled with a bit of almond paste as well, so good! The... More

My brother-in-law always told me: when you go to a place that specializes in what the name features, that’s what you should order! So we did, we tasted croissants and a chocolate brownie, both of which were good (but not spectacular). Of course it goes without saying that a full menu of espresso drinks is also available to complement these... More

I work in the same building as Bread and Chocolate so you can say I am a regular. I love the panini sandwiches. The spread samplers are also so good, but very filling. I cannot get enough of the raspberry white chocolate scones! I am also a huge fan of the iced tea that they serve. I think it is... More

We always have breakfast at Bread & Chocolate when we are in St. Paul. They make the best croissants and wonderful coffee. It's a great place to people watch so try to get a seat near the window overlooking Grand Avenue.

Had a business associated stop here for treats before a meeting. The crossiants were out of this world. We had three different varieties chocolate, raspberry and cream cheese and they were all fabulous!

We stopped for lunch and enjoyed a sandwich with a salad. Of course, we shouldn't forget the cookie for dessert. All were fresh and good. The dining area was clean and pleasant on a Sunday. Good choice.

Really enjoy B&C! The chocolate croissants, scones, muffins, ham and cheese croissants and cookies are yummy. This place always has a lot of families and groups of people gathering. Brightly lit and consistent friendly customer service help too. Although the croissants aren't as authentic as other bakeries in the TC, the overall delicious quality is enough for a stop ......

Loved the egg, potatoe, and cheese panini! Reasonably priced, and pleasant atmosphere! Delicious pastries, especially the chocolate and caramel pecan shortbread cookie.

This place is a step up from many coffee houses because of its extraordinarily good baked goods, along with good coffee and tea drinks. Cookies, scones and a variety of other baked goods are available, along with made to order sandwiches. The place is relaxed, larger than many Grand Av coffee houses, and moderately priced. Wifi is very good. You... More
