My boyfriend and I stopped here for breakfast on the way to D.C. I can't stop thinking about how great the food was. On the weekends they have a great deal $15 for a cup of coffee, cup of juice (both refillable) and then a huge basket of pastries. Everything was amazing, not too sweet or not too fruit. It... More

Stopped in on a Friday afternoon for a quick bite to eat after looking at an interesting menu. The place was empty minus one couple but the service was less than slow. My party was of eight people (4 adults, 4 children) and our waitress, Trish, did her best to speed things up but things just didn't work out so... More

We stopped in for a late breakfast after the early St Patrick's Day parade in Alexandria. We were seated quickly but it took a while for a server to come over. When she did she was very friendly. We went with the all inclusive which for $16 gives you coffee, OJ, a basket of pastries, and a (slightly) limited choice... More

We come occasionally after going to the King St Market for a brunch/lunch. The food--sandwiches, eggs benedict, french toast, etc--is consistantly good. There's a reason it's been here for so long.

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
