I figure I'm in a distinct minority here, since when anyone in san Diego says "Bread and Cie" they do so sort of breathlessly, as if this place was the repository of All Things Good. Fir me, it was everything mediocre. The atmosphere is on par with a noisy + crowded railway station, the latte I had was subpar...and sorry but I have had way better bread. And parking is a real problem, too. I often wonder, as I pass by, if people rave about it because they think they're sposed to?
In a word: meh.

Bread. So much bread. ANy kind of bread you could want. Best raisin bread ever. No seriously though. Even more worth the glutton than Brian's 24. They have pretty good coffee too. The seating is limited so get there early or take it to go. It also gets really hot in there, so I recommend taking you bread to go :)

My family (me, my wife, son 6, and daughter 3) stopped by here on the way to a picnic breakfast at Balboa park. They have an excellent selection of pastries and other sweet breakfast goodies. Everything we ordered, and we ordered a bunch, was delicious. I had an apricot cheese danish, my son had a cinnamon roll and apple turn over, my wife had an almond croissant, and my daughter had a cranberry orange muffin. We shared fruit salad and the kids had fresh squeezed orange juice.

My wife liked it so much for breakfast that she wanted to go back to try their lunch/dinner menu items.

We found parking right on the street.

The service was fast, and the locals seemed to go here as well. If we lived in SD, we'd probably be regulars, very well-fed regulars.
