I had two espressos there, and these were among the best coffees I have ever had in US. Definitely looks like european (italian!) coffee. The pastries are also excellent, the bread looks and smells like excellent french bread. And very friendly staff. Nice job!!

Bread & Butter has excellent coffee and tea, and great scones and cookies. The venue is quite to linger around to work on your laptop but the shape and cleanliness of the furniture and bathrooms leave a lot to be desired. If you are comfortable...More

One of my favorite places for coffee and a freshly baked scone. Spacious, quiet, laid-back atmosphere. George owns and operates the place and is often there baking up a storm, which adds fabulous aroma to the place.

Nice little café. The barista was so sweet. We took a ice café moka and a Blueberry muffin. Both of those tasted great. The muffin was homemade in the morning and was really good. The atmosphere was nice with soft jazzy music. The only bad...More

I make a special trip to this bakery for their amazing baguette. It is the best in the area and I'd say the best I've had anywhere outside of NY and Paris! It's crusty on the outside and dense and chewy on the inside. Amazing!

One afternoon I'd been wandering around for awhile and stopped in for some coffee and a scone. What a pleasant surprise. It's really a bit of a hole in the wall. From the outside, it looks nearly abandoned and inside, it's really rather no-frills. There...More

The breads here are truly yummy but as a sit-down place there is very little to choose from. Met friends for lunch there on two occasions and all we could do was cobble together some bread and cheese, basically. They could/should certainly offer more. The...More

As a cafe it is about the same as most. But the bread is truly exceptional. If you like bread, go there -- it's that good.
