“Good Bakery, Poor Atmosphere for a Cafe”
Reviewed 15 May 2013

The bakery products are tasty and the staff is friendly. The atmosphere is could be improved by replacing the display case that is extremely noisy. The owners were informed and said they would address the problem. They didn't! By the way, I am not the only person who is not pleased with the atmosphere of the Swiss Bakery.
So much for caring about their customers...I will seek another of the many of coffee houses in Morristown.

“Go there for breakfast”
Reviewed 9 March 2013

Not a restaurant, but inviting for a quick coffee&cookie: Swiss Chalet has clearly the best croissants in New Jersey (but not only that). When we lived in Morristown, I used to stop there Sundays to get the special pastry that you need for traditional 'European' Gemütlichkeit.

“Worse than terrible”
Reviewed 7 March 2013

I am for the small restaurateur that works hard in this hard economy, unless he charges a lot for poor quality. This is the case for this amateurial bakery in Morristown. Terrible pizza, terrible panini horrible bread and bakery. They have nothing Swiss. $23.00 for lunch for a panino a salad and a muffin. Who are you kidding?

“This and Artist Bakery are the two best in Motown”
Reviewed 3 February 2013 via mobile

Friendly staff, great cakes and coffee, decent cupcakes. Way better than Sweet Lucy's (although Sweet Lucy's is open late and Swiss Chalet closes early). For the best macaroons though, go to Artist Bakery.

“I wanted to love this place”
Reviewed 23 January 2013 via mobile

But..... All of the cookies tasted identical and nothing really stood out as far as dessert. I really like dessert with some cream filling so I order the one that seemed to have that but the cream was loaded with sugar which I couldn't even eat.
