REVIEWS OF The Sono Baking Company & Cafe IN Connecticut

Adam Stook

Excellent coffee( American) plus any latte cappuccino or espresso. Their breakfast is phenomenally organic and their Bakery products and bread are the best I've ever tasted

fran signore

Delicious well worth the drive

Noam Mantel

Matthew Klein

The best bakery in norwalk. The brunch offerings are delicious and the pastry options are wonderful. Definitely pick up some biscotti. It's not too dry and is loaded with pistachios and chocolate chips.

Tieson Molly

good pastries

Luca Bruga

Frankie Kuo

This is that one local-bakery-you-must-not-miss in SoNo, especially if you are a helpless baked goods enthusiast as I am...

David DeJesus

I love this place!! This is our go to breakfast spot on the weekends. Excellent coffee excellent anything on the breakfast menu. I will say that the smaller pastries are better than the larger pastries. The best deal is the egg sandwich on fresh croissants although I really enjoyed it the last time on the homemade English muffin. Nothing fancy but definitely worth a visit.

Very disorganized place no one ever looks happy, not very attentive been in several times but it's always the same. the food keeps me going back and once in awhile you get a new staff member that gives a crap. The place can't do any more or it would implode so I guess that's the attitude they have

margie guilman

Nice place good pastries

tom cohen

Not happy with this place. Ownership is rude. They have a nice group of very hard working people in the back. The mowners should take training from the hard working bakery staff that makes this business run. The food was bad. Salad was soggy and old. Soup was mostly broth. When I asked for a refund they became angry at me. I dont know who owner is but who ever runs this place is rude and perhaps abusive to staff. When I told a worker he said he knows,in Spanish. I believe a good look from immigrationand Ct SDtate Dept Labor Board may be in order,just my opinion. Please sup[port nice owners who provide good service. Say NO NO No No to So No Bakery

Suehellen McDougal

Nice place. Very clean. Pastries and braga made fresh in front of you! They have windows looking into the bakery. A little pricey but neat place and good.

Just a great, great spot for breakfast. If you don't like the food and bread and pastry and whatever here, that means you are dead... Wait, don't go here. Sorry, I am confusing this place with another place. Go to the other place - not here. If you go to Sono, you may just take my table and that would be a terrible loss for me....

Really nice atmosphere, exposed brick and open windows on bakery. I had the Sono sandwich: egg, croissant and bacon. Well seasoned and tasty. Friendly and relaxed service. It's a good spot.

Artem Kazakov

Good coffee and baked goods

Myles MacVane

Great omelettes, terrific pastries, wonderful coffee, and fine, mellow jazz on the sound system combine to make Sono Baking a very special treat!

Ryan Rupprecht

Eileen Secchi

Elia Kopreski

I love how you get to see the baking in action when you dine at the cafe

Henry Vinson

The greatest experience I've ever had at a bakery. The apple pizza is just wonderful. The best part of Norwalk is Sono Bakery.

Rosy Aravena

Antonello Caruggi

First time and we loved it! Try the almond croissant, delicious!

Ivonne Flores

Sean O'Grady

This is a great bakery, out of the way location, small seating area, fair pricing. Service is adequate. If the review was for food alone, it would be 5 stars easily.

Ricardo A.

Very good breakfast burrito. Excellent service.

Joan Song

Michael Potter

Best coffee and freshly baked pastries I've had in a very long time

mjmcdougle .

Holy moly! I got the pugliese bread and a chocolate croissant at their Westville farmers market stand, and both of them were the best I've ever had - and as a former pastry chef, I have quite exacting standards. The service was also very good and friendly. Haven't been to the cafe, but if I'm ever in the area I certainly will!

Otto Reyes

Alair Boshela

Very fun and cute place and they have a nice viewing area of the baking facility!

Hariprasad Jayaram

Angielu Lopez

If one day you really want to eat a great breakfast, go to Sono baking. I love their bakings!! Always fresh and delicious in taste. Pancakes always good there and real maple syrup.

Vanesa P

Really enjoy the demi-baguette with butter and jam.

Sharon DeFala

Service is always a little flighty, but the food is worth it. Recommend all the breakfast dishes, especially. Bonus: try to get seats by the bakery window and watch the bakers at work!

Tim Lathrop

Great food

Leonard Gravante


Jorge Ordoñez

Excelente una gran variedad de desayunos panes .. un buen lugar


Great place for pastries, coffee, a quick bite or just a nice conversation... Super friendly and helpful staff and I definitely recommend their burger on an English Muffin for lunch and their SoNo Egg Sandwich for breakfast... Also all of their breads are better anything you can find in the common places of CT

Jason Robards

I had originally had a bad experience here back in September. Interestingly I wrote about it on Yelp and they choose to remove it. So much for honesty. Vowed not to go but but was with a friend who just had to go so tagged along. The experience was almost exactly the same rude staff which made for an unpleasant visit. Since nothing had changed I think it benefitial to repost what Yelp removed. Everything looks nice and smells wonderful but have to give it a FAIL in the customer service department. It was like a scene right out of Seinfeld's "Soup Nazi". The staff was rude and disrespectful. Not at all what I had expected from a place that had been recommended by a friend. This is indeed a shame as I liked what I saw but will not go back. (and I mean it this time)


went later in the day and it was pretty empty which was great since I was with my kids and they like to take their time deciding over their pastry choices lol. we tried several different items including the almond croissant which was fabulous!! left with two loaves of fresh bread which we ate later and was also worth going back for! friendly customer service topped it all off. we will def be back to try more whenever in the area.

Kevin Feeney

Nice food albeit pricey and tuff to park

Anna Mellor

Food & coffee is always delicious. We got a little confused because we ordered food & coffee, and they brought the food out to our table, but called out the coffee at the counter, and I couldn’t hear them calling it out from where we were sitting. I also feel like the staff isn’t blatantly rude, but not overly friendly & you can tell they sometimes want to roll their eyes at people who are slow at ordering etc. But not anything to keep me from coming back.

Mr. Jade

Seriously some of the best cakes around!! Highly recommend.

Keshav Raghavan

This is the best part of Norwalk. One of the best bakeries in CT, without a doubt. Try the stuffed brioche French toast. It'll change your life.

Rosey Cheeks

Uptight and unhappy employees. Overpriced and not all that tasty food. Unimpressed.

Vladimir Puhalac

Amazing breakfast food! Do try sono croissant with eggs and bacon - delicious!

Jos Pamboris

Anirban Ghosh

Rachel Mackson

Good food, convenient parking. A bit pricey.

I have had everything here from eggs benedict to coconut cake and all of it has been so good. A friendly and accomodating staff make my visits enjoyable.

Truman Small

Pricey, but worth it!

Pam Ellett

Lovely place......great food.

Daniela Sevilla

Excellent rotation of special soups and sandwiches. Amazing baked goods including pastries and breads.

Joseph Klimoski

My wife our 8 month old and I stopped for a quick bite after visiting the Norwalk aquarium. Delish! My wife had the cob salad and I had the Cinnamon raisin French toast, everything was great! Coffee too! Do yourself a favor and visit the local gem, you won't be sorry!

elizabeth warren

Poor food. Poor service. Soup quality was inferior and seved cold. Our table was dirty so I had to clean it. The bread was hard. I suggest visiting Panera Bread, Trader Joes, and Great Cakes for better quality. Say no no no no to Sono,.so long So No. It was a bad experience. Good luck, Patty Cake

Harriet Pike

Hidden gem in SoNo. Great breakfast sandwiches and great study/work spot. Their monkey bread / sticky rolls are a bit dry.

Ruben Gordillo

The best stuffed french toast!! And many many more.

Dila Inan

Fluffy, light cupcakes...

Brendan Rauth

Andrew Landry

Delicious bakery with great sandwiches & salads. Tried the Cubano sandwich and loved it. Looking forward to trying other things on the menu.

Harsha Kaundinya

A classic American bakery with several delicious pastries, a range of breads, and desserts. This place also offers several breakfast options such as Omlettes, Pancakes, waffles. They also have a variety of salad options for lunch. They also serve good coffee.

Jeff Keltz

Sort of over priced. Not bad by any means. But not where I immediately think of bringing people visiting the area, mostly due to price. I "get it" though.

Shaherezada Shekker

Jessica Mendoza

Ian Rothman

Mike Ahearn

Tasty food, friendly people and the best mocha latte I've ever had! Highly rec'd

Robert Craig

Had a great blt club. Good coffee. Cute place in a nice area of town by the shore.

Keith Friedman

Ordered a birthday cake for my uncle's 75th. The baker could not pay attention to what they were supposed to write and write the wrong number. No one checked it either. We ended up having to go to both locations and wasting a good chunk of our morning getting this fixed. To top off the experience the cake was fair at best very dry not moist at all. Such a huge disappointment.

Игорь Антонов

Good coffee, bread, deserts, breakfasts and free parking on SoNo square

Paul Gugger

Everything I have had here has been good. Coffee, croissant, breakfast. A little expensive but that is because it is high quality. Funny seating arrangement but works well enough for getting a little work done on your laptop too.

Jason Guu

Paul McLaughlin

Hands-down the best bakery in town. Baking isn't just a business there, it's an art. All the pastries are delicious, coffee is great, and the breads and less-traditional bakery items like sandwiches and breakfast foods are all excellent.

Jeffrey Arevalo

Favorite breakfast/brunch spot. Delicious coffee! Best egg sandwich around.

Jen Baker

Pleasant atmosphere, good coffee, and delicious baked breads, sweets, and quiche!

Amy Comport

One of my absolute favorite local bakeries/patisseries. Not many tables, and open 7am-3pm. A simple menu, but everything is excellent.

Peiwen Lee

Victor Gorshkov

Best bread in a 20 mile radius. By far.

Vivianna Sanchez

Great iced latte

Craig Mayer

If you're going for a relaxing breakfast this may not be the place for you as after you place your order if the place is busy there is no getting out of anybody's way. The staff is very friendly the place is very nice the coffee & bread are Great. The restaurant layout is not idle. Order ahead

Joseph Farhangian

Great brunch options. Small seating

Jacqueline Bowers

cafe food at this place - great. I like it here, excellent food & service. The staff was very helpful and welcoming. Similar to a place in Denver I loved.

tina baranet

I have bought 2 cakes from SoNo Bakery, one was a birthday cake last summer and more recently a coconut cake for the holidays.At $30.00 for a 6-inch cake and at a bakery at that, I would expect that the cakes would be fresh, which they were not. The birthday cake tasted like refrigerator, and the coconut cake icing was hard and stale. 2 out of 2, I won't go back.

Sammi D

I stopped in here with my boyfriend for a snack and was amazed at how large the place was. There were a lot of options for pastries and they were even doing a buy one get one free for the breakfast items. The tarts and pastries are delicious and well priced!

Micaela Belmonte

L. Isabelle Schless

Jennifer P.

First time there and definitely not my last time :-)

Ignatius Ferreira

Now this is a classy place. Who would have known that such a place even existed in a place called South Norwalk. You will notice classy people dining and an excellent service. This will become my regular breakfast place. I love it. You will never be disappointed.

Josh Wrinn

Hidden gem... great upscale place, and food is top notch.... pricey though

Nathan Pirakitikulr

Unbelievable. Love their monkey bread, focaccia... Just wish they kept their banana chocolate chip tea bread around.

drew decker


These guys have varieties of pastries, breakfast and salad too. I loved cross Ian ts, coffee and sandwich from here, this is located in sono and its very hard to find parking over here . Rest all was okay. Staff was super nice. The service was quick too.

Ava Van Elis

Cute atmosphere but expect an attitude from barista (apparently all overpriced coffee in this county comes with a bad attitude)

Zachary Goulet

Addicted to their bread: bring home two loaves for the family every Friday. Great pastries/coffee for a quick breakfast/snack and quality options for a faster sit-down breakfast/lunch.

Chris Casola

Maureen Carroll

The decor is clean and charming. The staff were polite and respectful. The food was great. Highly recommend.

Brenda Johnson

I love this place it's right down the street from my house very good service
