They also offer great take out items including... More

I've been going to Atticus for years, first as an undergraduate going for soup/bread or dessert after the theater, and since relocating to New Haven have had breakfast/brunch there a few times. They have very good breakfast sandwiches, and their breakfast plates are very good: quality bread, a variety of offerings, hearty but not over-large portions.

We have been going to Atticus a bookstore/restaurant across the street from Yale University for years. Usually it was for coffee and pastry before or after theatre which was very satisfying.

If you get anything from here, only do to-go. The service is so horrible, not welcoming, and takes so long, I would never recommend anyone to go here for food.

Boy! is it tempting and delicious. Simple and reliable food, especially the bean soup. Being surrounded by books is a delight, but the baked goods are super.
