Bread & Cie is a bakery and restaurant like no other, featuring breakfasts extraordinaire, sandwiches, soups and salads. The aroma of fresh baked bread meets you at the front door...I dare you to walk out without a bag of bread for take-out. The creative breakfasts...More

If you want to try really good french pastries, this is it. Freshly out of the oven before you buy it, wide variety and beautifully presented.

Oh the choices! Cases the dessert display and wanted one of everything, especially the macaroons. Just beautiful! Lunch menu is great. Could have a better wine and beer selection, but a wonderful place and location. Outdoor seating is very nice.

Bread & Cie has been here for decades, and continues to be the best around. The bread is perhaps the biggest draw, offering loaves of walnut raisin, ciabatta, fig & anise, country leaving, etc. The pastries are to die for, and their coffee drinks excellent....More
