Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Very, very expensive! The food was good, but considering I had a salad and a bowl of soup, not sure $50 is a good value. Also, the waitress seemed taken aback when I walked in, solo, and asked for a table. She said she had...to check the reservations but yet it was pretty quiet and there were a lot of empty tables. Oddly, too, I felt like the tables that had two or more diners were paid a lot more attention than I was. A bit odd. The server was nice, but I can't say I would return. The price was just bonkers!More

Italian style caffè, great. Next to a friendly art gallery and a nice, laid back giftshop. Clean outhouses. Nice ladies, one of whom actually spoke some ( good!) French.

Everything from the appetizers, the main course and the dessert was outstanding. The service was excellent also! Kudos to the...chef and his whole crew; highly recommend!!More

A completely ordinary cappuccino costs the best part of ten dollars here. Frankly there's something wrong with us for paying it.

We visited the bakery 3 mornings. It was good. Wry good actually. However, the big surprise was the dinner we had at the restaurant one night. We didn’t know they served dinner but saw a hand painted signs that said “dinner tonight. 5:00”. I popped...my head in and made a rez for our friends and ourselves for that evening. It was spectacular!!! It is a small menu but very considered. We had the black cod and oysters and some of the best bread I’ve ever had. There is a nice wine list and even a nicer server! I’d go back in a heartbeat!More

We stopped in for fuel and refreshments. The bakery is fun and delicious. Great little wayside stop where you can fuel, use the restroom, shop a little, and get some coffee to go.

Phenomenal dinner worthy of Michelin stars on Californias Central Coast. Starters included oysters with pear mignonette, local Tuna with Persimmon and a velvety squash bisque. The main course was a beautifully cooked ribeye with lingonberry’s and truffle. The meal was stunning, paired with fantastic wines...in a beautiful setting. I cannot say enough good things, the meal was perfect and I can’t wait to return.More

Heard so many good things about this place, we decided to head there for breakfast as we had heard it was good. There was no "breakfast" to speak of, we ended up having muffins and coffee - all very average and massively overpriced - spent...$70 on 4 pastries and 4 coffees - outrageous. Also the staff were quite arrogant - obviously trading on all the hype about the place. The music played there, however, was great.More

We got here as I saw all the ig pic and reviews, it was totally far form the reality The menu was so basic and poor.. No soups, no nice salads, no sandwiches.. only omelette with a green salad and avocado toast .. The dished...served are completely opposite form which I previously saw on the web.. At the beginning I thought I was in the wrong place but when I realize we just got a pan de chocolate and a coffe (nothing special) and we left really disappointed.More

Returning to BSB after 7 years absence, the clientele are even more rude; the prices are higher (although not as high as I would have thought); but the food is good.

Extremely small portions for a high price. What I thought was an appetizer was the main course! Don’t come Hungary. If you’re on a budget - this is not your place.

Very limited dinner menu and several dishes were sold out. Servings are extremely small and extremely pricey ($38 per plate for literally about 5 bites of food). My husband and I both ordered the salmon and it was flavorless, not unappetizing, but certainly not savory...in any regard. We do not recommend this spot for dinner.More

Here's the deal. This little bakery has a nice setting with pretty gardens and comfortable places to enjoy your vittles, both inside and outside. They seem to run out of stuff, it's not run very efficiently, it's too slow, and the prices can be high...(the avocado toast ridiculously so). That said, it's damn delicious and it felt so good being and eating there. Yup, I went back the next day.More
