Bread & Chocolate is a cozy coffee shop and bakery located in a classy part of St. Paul along Grand Avenue. My friend and I stopped in on a snowy December evening and were welcomed to the quiet, warm coffee shop with a fire blazing in the corner. From our table, we could see the falling snow and occasional passerby along Grand Avenue.
As a non-coffee drinker, I was happy to see that their drink selection was more varied than a typical coffee shop. All of their coffee flavors are also available as steamers, with milk as the base instead of coffee. I tried the Swedish Steamer, which contained cardamom and reminded me somewhat of a liquid Swedish-or-Finnish-made cinnamon or caramel roll (which typically contain cardamom). My friend and I shared a cinnamon roll and a chocolate croissant. The cinnamon roll was better than average, and the croissant was good, but not memorable.
The staff were helpful and guided us in narrowing our selection from the plentiful variety of baked goods available. I recommend stopping by Bread and Chocolate for a tasty bakery treat and a warm drink.
