It's too bad the other reviewer had such a negative experience. Mine was completely opposite. While Bread Garden is surely all about the food and there's not much emphasis on making it an irresistible place to hang out, I found the service to be friendly, efficient and helpful. To me its a breath of fresh air to find a place that prides itself in its product rather than its packaging. There are ARTISTS at work here! Too often I find I go to places where the atmosphere is wonderful, the service is overly friendly and the food is totally forgetable. Go to Bread Garden for amazing, authentic breads, outstanding pasteries and the best foccacia I ever tasted. Then take your goodies to your favorite place -- like your home, maybe? -- and enjoy. I also have to say that I was in recently and there was a young man working there who couldn't have been more delightful and helpful. I think he's a college student, possibly working a summer job. But the whole experience for me was entirely satisfying.
Pros: One of the best bakeries anywhere
Cons: not next door to my house
