Great airy space, beautifully done. Moderate crowd midmorning on a weekday. Excellent selection of interesting breads fresh baked. Hungry for breakfast we opted for some crossaints (1 salami, 1 chocolate) and they killed. Rich, impossibly light, how a wisper of flakiness could hold the buttery potency is beyond me. Samples of a seeded rye were hearty yet soft. Excellent coffee... More

If I have extra time in day I like to stop in for a coffee and croissant. Coffee is very good especially in thick mugs. The croissant and breads are reminiscent of being in France. A great neighborhood bakery to relax and read over coffee and something

We enjoyed sampling the pastries and breads of the Sub Rosa Bakery. the flower is ground on site and then cooked to perfection in a large wood fired oven. Early visitors are rewarded with the greatest variety since the selections tend to sell quickly.

We wanted a quick breakfast and stopped for pastries to bring to bring to my son's house. They were very tasty but I thought a few pastries were a little burnt. The fillings were delicious - cheese and fig being a favorite. It is busy on the weekend and limited inside tables and few outside, tables were filled so be... More

We were directed from across the street to the best chocolate croissant in the whole town. Our fortune was great this day because they were great.

Visited my daughter who just moved to the Church Hill area in Richmond-- and discovered this bakery in walking distance from her apt. I am originally from Germany and know all about good bread-- their "Classic Bread" is the best bread I have ever found in the US in all the years I have lived here. Wish they could send... More

I visited Subrosa for the first time today, and was more impressed that I thought I would be by this locally famous bakery. I had a sampling of several items (on a food tour)and each was better than the last. Flaky pastry, tasty fillings, great texture of bread items. We were lucky enough to see the milling process used to... More

The bread is incredible. I moved to Virginia almost 20 years ago and have been consistently disappointed with bread and baked goods. That all changed today. I also tried one of the chocolate pastries and it was delicious.

We recently treated ourselves to a breakfast "picnic." The Sub Rosa Bakery came highly recommended to us by a friend. Luckily, we got there at the "right" time. When we arrived, there was only one person ahead of us. By the time we left, just a few minutes later, a group of 10-15 people were waiting. We got the Morning... More

I absolutely loved...loved... This place! An authentic neighborhood bakery. It's one thing to have the ambience of a neighborhood bakery but it's another to deliver an awesome product. The croissants are to die for! Try the Chocolate for breakfast and take a ham and cheese one with you for lunch! Staff was very friendly and helpful. The only one thing... More
