Loved the coffee, the muesli, and the ham & cheese croissant and would recommend them in particular. Great that they also had fresh OJ and fresh fruit cup, but you can get them elsewhere. Very much reminded me of IKEA.

The coffee is good if you like it strong. I prefer the chocolate croissant between the two the chocolate wins. Haven’t tried anything else yet.

Delivery driver consistently seen driving above 50 mph on quiet residential streets. Risking the lives of its neighbors and customers.

Located in a former auto dealership, it works beautifully as a bright clean modern upscale euro-cafe. More than ample on-site parking includes two free EV charging points (one for Teslas, another for other EVs). Fresh and natural ingredients are transformed into delicious pastries. Lovely cappuccinos...More

Not my usual spot to stop but I found parking fairly easy and wanted to try this place out. Enjoyed the strong bitter coffee and fresh rolls. May return for another coffee and the pastry display caught my eye. The only thing holding me. Ack...More

I am Swiss (short trip to Boston) and loved it. This place maintains high standards. The restaurant is modern, clean and airy. Had hoped for a bigger menu selection of Swiss delicacies.

This is a spacious and friendly spot with lots of parking and outdoor space for kids. The pastries, coffee and breakfast sandwiches were uniformly good during three visits. It's a bit expensive, as might be expected, and the staff was disorganized at best. Also, my...More

No additives or artificial ingredients. All hand made. And we can tell you that each product you buy was baked that morning. Swissbakers began in 1998 in the home of Helene & Thomas Stohr. Helene wanted to bring Swiss food and culture to Boston through fresh pretzels, bread, and pastries. Food should be savored and enjoyed, not used simply as fuel for the body, because of this all swissbakers products are all-natural and made fresh daily. Our food is healthy and light with an emphasis on flavor and simplicity, "our food makes you feel good!" Swissbakers has grown steadily over the years, and now all production takes place in a 14,000 square foot bakery in Allston. This facility allows us to distribute to multiple cafes, farmers markets, wholesale accounts, and catering guests, while maintaining "grandchild sustainability." Everything we do has no impact or a positive impact on the environment.
