We stopped in on a Sunday morning en route to sightseeing and enjoyed the All Inclusive, which came with a basket of pastries, coffee, juice, and savories from which to choose (we had the "big breakfast," which was big indeed!). It was not "fancy" but the food was satisfying and the coffee was hot. Our server was helpful and friendly,... More

I enjoyed one of their breakfast specialties so much that I came back with my family the next day to try another one. I forgot the name, but it was a mixed of beets and vegetables topped by two poached eggs. It was a middle-east dish.

This is a neighbourhood cafe in the era of international chain food and drink standardization. Not everything is perfect. Not everything is exactly as you'd expect. Not everything is always available. But in a high-pressure, high-stress city, it's so nice to walk in and just relax in an old-school cafe with excellent tea and fresh food. This is a no... More

Brought my 2 year old with me for a quick snack. Not a huge selection for grab and go items. I got an almond croissant. I felt like you can't really go wrong with that. My son eagerly wanted a bite. He sunk his teeth into it and spit it out. I took a bite and it was very dry.... More

While staying in the Foggy Bottom neighborhood, Bread & Chocolate was one of our breakfast restaurants -- we couldn't have made a better choice! Delicious egg dishes complete with fresh bread basket, very good coffee, excellent atmosphere plus efficient, friendly service. The pastry case is filled with a wide variety of fresh pastries including the apparently popular chocolate croissant which... More

We ate here three mornings in a row - every single day of our trip. Nice people and great food. The omelets are amazing, the bread basket varied and delicious. Get the pastries and fruit if you feel like being bad and good at the same time!

"Bread and Chocolate" is a small, well appointed bakery and snack bistro. The first time I tried this restaurant I was totally surprised to see the diversity in their food offerings. Their bakery items were fresh and delicious - but when I saw "Shukshuka" on their menu I was surprised - so I tried it. I thought I was back... More

We came here for brunch on a blustery cold day and it was amazing! We had several people recommend it to us. Our service was great. We had bread and butter and jam brought to the table, ordered fresh squeezed orange juice , coffee and a cappuccino, the vegetable omelet with potato latkes, the Brie and pear and bacon panini...

We were in town visiting colleges and staying nearby at the Hilton Garden Inn. Great service, no wait for a table, we will return.

$16 gets you a substantial, well-cooked, tasty breakfast in pleasant cafe surroundings. I intend to return.
