Great everything. I recently started working around here and I am hooked! Coffee is great, food is great, service is great! Try it, you won't be sorry.

The last time I was here with my mother we waited 45 minutes for brie and apricot sandwiches- who has 45 minutes to wait for breakfast? When we reminded the waiter he was surly and acted like we were bothering him. The inside was good but the bread was so hard I almost broke a tooth. Today, I tried again. I ordered the same sandwich and asked for it on different bread. The waitress said you have to get the bread that comes with the sandwich. This either means they are premade (so why the 45 minute wait last time) or they missed the lesson in waitressing school about doing what you can to make the customer happy. Is a different kind of bread really too much to ask? And I've been to the one on Clark St several times and everyone who works there is really nice! When she said no, I left. I won't be going back.

I live around the corner from Tazza on Clark and frequent there everyday. Normally the girls are friendly but today when I asked for a paper to pick up a baguette as I did not wish to touch it with my dirty hands, the girl sucked her teeth, rolled her eyes, turned her head and snatched the bread up from the heap. When I explained to her why I didn't want to touch the bread with my bear hands, she ignored me. For this nasty unwarranted attitude, I will never return. Listen to your reviews and hire people who are more service inclined and just plain respectful!

I got lost in the Brooklyn Heights area and stumbled upon Tazza. It is a cute little spot with a big [select]ion of desserts and sandwiches. I had the panini with proscuitto, mozzarella and arugala and it was delicious - not too much meat or cheese or bread, perfectly warm and toasted. I had a hard time choosing a dessert, everything looks good. I tried the chocolate peanut butter rice krispy treat which was absolutely divine if you like chocolate and peanut butter. I also tried the carrot cake bar and that was delicious as well. Everything was fantastic except the food took a little long to arrive. The servers were friendly though. I wish there was a place like Tazza near me in Manhattan!

I was looking foward to a cup of coffee and desert one afternoon. It just so happens that it didnt turn out that way, for a nice cafe the girls are a bit rude. they are not very patient with people. The deserts were ok but its not enough for me to keep going there, although i would like to confirm that there is a new location on Clark Street, hopefully it will be better than the atlantic ave place i will give the benefit of the doubt. sorry I haif to go where i will be served better.

Just got back from Tazza, where I had absconded to in the hopes of escaping the distractions of home with the goal of getting some work done. I knew that they'd had a policy of no computers on the weekends between 11-4, but today was a weekday and I figured it wouldn't be too crowded. I had planned to camp out there and nosh all day on sandwiches, salad and coffee and maybe even some sweet treats, while also getting through a bunch of work I'd been procrastinating. When I arrived, there were only a few folks and so I snagged a corner table by the window. Somehow I'd missed the signs about the change in policy, and so just as I was settling in with a large cup of coffee and my first course, a waitress came over, apparently under orders from the owner who happened to be on site, and told me very apologetically that computers were no longer allowed on weekdays either. I would have understood if the place was packed I get it: you don't want folks hanging around when people are waiting for tables. But there was hardly anyone there! Rather than put up a fuss (it's not the server's policy after all), I paid my bill and left in protest. It's an unreasonable policy, and it's a shame they went that way.

I really dont like the desserts here, but my family does. I have to admit the desserts are all fresh. We have never ever had anything stale or rancid. Believe it or not, this is not so uncommon with smaller boutique style bakery/cafes. I have never had a panini or salad, only sweets here. The menu however, looks very varied. Lots of fresh greens, goat cheese and bread. As one would expect at a place with a French foundation. The wine bar is very nice and the environment is sort of relaxing. Depends who is on duty and what time you go. I will say, the prices are a tad steep, even for Brooklyn Heights, and particulary for the sometimes scrawny slices of cake you get.
