Yerba Máte

Today was the 2nd time I have met someone at Bittersweet Cafe and Confections for a business meeting. I really love this place! Great staff, love the coffee and drinks and today I ordered a to-go Balsamic salad for afterward before my next appointment. The salad was lovely and the iced Yerba Mate I ordered for the meeting was perfect. Not sure of the tea brand they use, but it was light and crisp. I recommend this place. The outdoor seating is very enjoyable. A great place to meet people in a central location for the area.

Fresh Baked Cookies

Slightly obsessed with Bittersweet! I went in one day and ordered a simple decaf mocha and chocolate covered sugar cookie. Then I proceeded to repeat for the next 5 days straight! So good! The coffee is so smooth and it doesn't matter who makes it it's always consistently amazing and perfect. The baked good are wonderful! I love to support local and I've been supporting Moxie (who is also amazing don't get me wrong) but honestly Bittersweet is my #1. I like the coffee better (hotter and less wait) and no line. I think Bittersweet is a hidden gem that people forget about! Always a place to sit, great lunches too. But seriously, get in here!

VEG OUT

Simply scrumptious! It is a veggie sandwich I will dream out! All the flavors blend together and are served on delicious toasted bread. I opted for a side salad instead of chips. The salad was fresh and crisp. My husband had the chicken pesto sandwich and he loved it, too.

SMOKIN'

Bittersweet is a longtime favorite, not only for their consistently flavorful and creative food offerings like the Smokin sandwich, their salads, baked goods, beverages, etc. but also because of the lovely and relaxing atmposhere that makes me feel like I'm in a cozy, comfortable home. Hope to be there again soon :)

SCONES

So Good! Perfect combo of crisp exterior and soft interior crumb. Blueberry is best but the others run close. My favorite in the greater Boulder area.

Bhakti Chai

I really enjoy the cute Bittersweet cafe atmosphere! The space is nice and quiet so I can get my work done while at the same time it's a cozy space that I can meet with friends and catch up. The staff is always super friendly and is willing to replace a drink if it completely spills! (Speaking from experience)

GRILLED CHEESE & TOMATO SOUP

This is my absolute favorite dish! It reminds me of a homecooked comfort meal that I can get for a reasonable price. I love to get it on those really cold days that can sometimes feel endless.

BRISKET BURRITO

Hands down the best burrito I have ever had. I've had a lot of burritos in my day and this has surpassed every single one. It is fresh and has amazing flavor. Not to mention, it is packed for the price. The only bad thing is how close it is to my house! I want to get one everyday now.

BUILD-A-BURRITO

I've had their food many times before and this burrito was no exception to their normal excellence! I LOVE their daily made patisserie and their food always tastes fresh. They have my favorite latte in town and it's always consistent and tasty. Lines can get long at times, but I've always planned around late-start Wednesdays and it's definitely worth the wait every time. They have a wonderful laid back vibe that really adds to this town.

FRESH VEG

I ordered a handful of breakfast burritos + coffee for an event my company was hosting at a nearby housing development. I cannot say enough how much I personally, and our group, loved the food and coffee. The flavors were amazing and everything was ready for me to pick up ahead of schedule - the whole experience was really wonderful, could not recommend Bittersweet enough!

BALSAMIC CHICKEN

Loved this salad. I ordered it to go to eat between meetings. It was just what I needed. The chicken and creamy goat cheese went so nicely with the greens and I lightly drizzled the balsamic over the salad so the flavors were not overtaken. Very nice!

Latte

I've moved from Wisconsin to Colorado a few months ago and have been searching for this hidden gem. Im so happy I finally found it! I ordered a almond milk latte and I can not rave about this espresso enough! It is divine. Just love! ❤️☕️

BRISKET BURRITO

The brisket is the best. Have had it several times. Tender and cooked consistently. But Bittersweet itself is the experience. Staff are so nice. Great atmosphere. Louisville would not be same without it. This is an anchor in town.

You gonna have to ROLL me on home after that thing, but hot damn are they good! These rolls are a staple in my 5,000 cal/day diet! RIP Weight Watchers...

VEG OUT

I had the Veg Out on toasted ciabatta bread and it was positively divine. Warm and toasty with a touch of velvety soft goat cheese in every bite. Toasty bits of ciabatta mingled with pesto to cradle tender artichoke hearts and smokey roasted red peppers. A surprise of sun-dried tomatoes made their debut with just the right amount of chewiness and tang. I love coming here to set my mind right and frequently make the 30 minute drive to this warm, inviting sanctuary. The coffee and friendly service never disappoints.

BALSAMIC CHICKEN

The balsamic chicken salad is one of my favorites at Bittersweet. Although everything I have tried here is more than delicious, this one takes the cake for me!! I definitely recommend trying this when you come here for lunch, it comes with the best baked bread, too!

Cafe Mocha

My daughter-in-law deems your coffee the best anywhere, and when I asked her what she wanted as a gift, she said, with no hesitation, "a gift card from Bittersweet." What better recommendation could there be? Thank you for also serving my granddaughter an before-school drink. You have to be the best in Louisville!!!

BALSAMIC CHICKEN

I work in the area and this salad is by far the best thing I've found for lunch in downtown Louisville. The lettuce is always fresh, and the chicken is always cooked perfectly. It comes with a baguette that is always warm and delicious as well. My only advice is to order ahead online the line can be pretty long at lunch.
