Excellent fresh breads, pastries and salads. Worth a visit if you are downtown and want a snack or a meal.

We had just gotten into Roanoke and we needed breakfast and I went on their website and the first picture is of enormous cinnamon rolls...PERFECT girls favorite. Except they only have cinnamon rolls on Saturday and it was Sunday. My fault and not a big deal because what we got was incredible.

I do not go here to eat, so I am not an expert on that part of this restaurant. However, their Bread that get to take home is the best in the Roanoke Valley. I would highly recommend all who are looking for something better than grocery store bread to shop here.

This place is amazing! Excellent service by the staff (especially Nusreta), and food is delicious. Food like this is hard to find in ROANOKE!

Stopped by Wednesday am for coffee and a scone and breakfast danish. Friendly place. Great display of products. Nice hot coffee. More limited menu during week. Broader menu on weekend. Always great food and service. Good sized seating area. Certainly going to return!

Went here for lunch and would have liked more choices. Settled for the B.B. Turkey. There was way too much lettuce on the sandwich and not enough mayo. I should have asked for more mayo so I can't blame them for that. The bread was really good, whole grain. Would like to go back and try their breakfast although that... More

Thank you for your review of our bakery. The reason our menu might seem limited is because we believe in preparing all of our food from scratch so your sandwich had fresh turkey breast roasted in house, mayonnaise made from local farm eggs, and of course fresh baked breads daily. More

We stopped in for breakfast, and we're expecting a working bakery, not a location with everything premade. We ended up having chocolate croissants, which were unexpected, and not what I had planned, but were good nonetheless.

Carrie, I am not sure if you are reviewing the right bakery, if you are, then I am not sure what gave you the impression that what we sell is premade.

Bread Craft is a beautiful bakery just two blocks from the Hampton Inn & Suites Downtown Roanoke. It has beautiful deserts, pastries, breads and gourmet coffee to boot. The best morning you'll have in awhile.

We were passing through, and wanted a really great breakfast. Well, we got it! Found the review on Trip Advisor, and it was very accurate. Fantastic menu for the kind of food and pastries you won't find anywhere else. My husband had the chorizo and eggs, and I had a dish with spinach, feta and a poached egg that was... More

This place had great reviews, so we decided to give it a try. We ordered the sirloin and egg croissant. It came with a side of fresh fruit. The croissant was fresh, big, with the right amount of flakiness. It was amazing! Very clean, all kinds of pastries and breads, and the waitress and cashier were friendly!

It is our goal to introduce the Roanoke area to our style of baking. There is a simple joy in eating a loaf of bread made fresh daily and not loaded down with preservatives to make it last for weeks as it travels from one part of the country to another. Our bread is fresh and local.The hard crust provides satisfaction of eating something substantial.And the soft yet firm crumb contrasts the mouth-
