I have stopped in to the new location in WH center a few times. I love the brioche pretzel. Amazing. The yogurt and granola is tasty too. The view of the street from the second floor is perfect for people watching. Acoustics are not great when the place is crowded. It's hard to have a conversation.

Wait staff very helpful and happy. Coffee fresh and great size cup. The Danish are buttery and melts in your mouth. Love the biroch rolls. The breads are great and great to bring to a friends for lunch.

We have gone to both the New Park and Farmington Ave locations. We love the scones and the bread is quite good. The coffee is OK but not on a par with the many dedicated coffee spots in West Hartford. And, we find it difficult to enjoy our coffee in such a noisy environment. Clearly, this is a bakery and...

I didn't expect to have such a pleasant experience at this cafe when we arrived. They have a great menu for breakfast and lunch. I wanted to try everything that they had on their pastry and bread menu. It all just looked so appetizing. The giant pretzels are quite impressive. They have a good selection of tea and coffee an...

They serve up Stumptown Coffee Roasters coffee here and I'm a huge fan. We come to CT 2-3 times per year and I always hit up this bakery. They have seating. The food is sourced with local ingredients. Staff is friendly also.

In a previous review, when I commented on the poor quality of their pastries, I also commented on how excellent the breads were. I was at a function recently where their round Italian bread was served and for me, it was the highlight of the dinner. We took home a loaf, which was portioned out and enjoyed toasted with butter...

We stop by Hartford Baking by Company every Sunday after our workout at WIP! We have coffee, treats and catch up! It's our HH! Great service and friendly staff! Can get a bit crowded though! Popular Sunday morning place!

I stopped by the Hartford Baking Company to treat myself to a few pastries. While I've enjoyed their delicious bread many times, the pastries I tried fell far short of the mark. The pecan sticky bun was covered in an excessively-sweet, over spiced syrup that overpowered the flavor of the yeast bread and pecans. I also had an almond financier,... More

The breakfast are all extremely fresh and very tasty. The croustades are especially popular with our group, but no matter how much we get, it all gets eaten
