“Wonderful bread but expensive”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

Having lived in Europe for 29 years, I was used to all the wonderful, fresh, flavoursome breads you can get there and over the moon when I discovered Ciao Ciao. The choice of breads isn't as wide or varied as you'd find in Europe but the quality is lovely. The prices are, however, quite high.

“Bread of life”

Regular drop in for us -you cannot beat it for the rich selection of drinks, wonderful mederteranian foods and the most wonderful cakes and biscuits. If you are visiting call in you will not be disappointed! Try their different breads and take some home - wow.

“Lovely, friendly, great service”
Reviewed 10 May 2014 via mobile

Found this little place whilst looking for somewhere to eat breakfast on 10th May 14. Glad we discovered it!! looks lovely from the outside & in. Staff are very pleasant & helpful. Even better a bacon bun (with 4 choices of fresh bread) & a cuppa for £2.50! I don't drink tea or coffee so she made me up a hot chocolate. The home made cakes, pasties, pies etc. which were also available looked delicious. We will definitely be visiting again! :)

“Artisan Mediterranean bakery with added café”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

This tiny shop-cum-café is a real gem in the heart of the city. The wide range of delicious breads, cakes and biscuits are all made fresh daily and the café serves a range of authentic Mediterranean combinations of ingredients in generously-sized sandwiches, salads and soup.
