This is my go-to breakfast item here. It's delicious and healthy. I like to add hot sauce to it. Pair it with a latte and my day is set. Highly recommend!

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.

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.

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!!!

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.

Herbal Hibiscus

I LOVE the iced tea here- Nothing reminds me of summer like a glass of iced tea. The hibiscus is one of my favorites, and the green tea is really good- I wait for it all year!!!

How in the world do you do it? I marvel at the deliciousness of this breakfast/anytime creation, but seriously- for that small price!! So much food for so little money, and the quality of the ingredients are sublime. My hat's off to the chef/creator/mastermibd who dreams up such creative flavor pairings! Can't WAIT to return for more :-) Thanks for never disappointing! Penny

This is a such a satisfying salad. You had me at goat cheese. And walnuts. And sun-dried tomatoes. Darn it, now I need to come over and grab lunch!

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 :)

Yes! This sandwich is amazing, granted all the food is pretty good. But the house made ciabatta>>

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.

This was the most rich, delicious cinnamon roll I've ever had! Definitely enough for two people :) Love this little shop, all the employees are great and food is always 10/10

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)

Definitely try! I got the bbq on the side (so I could add the amount I wanted) and it was great.

I tried the Matcha latte. It was the first time I had been there and I was really impressed. Definitely going back.

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.

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.

Bittersweet has great food, coffee, and service! Great spot in Old Town.

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.

Cafe Au Lait

What a wonderful cafe! I had the Cafe Au Lait and it was smooth and rich! This cafe is my new favorite! The people are nice, atmosphere warm yet energetic, and there is seating in and outside. I'm going to definitely take home some of delicious smelling pastries on my next visit!

I have never been to Louisville before today. I decided to stop in and try this cute cafe. I tried the Green Goddess for something light but filling. I'm so glad I did. The challah bread was just the right crispiness and complimented the texture of the avocado. The watermelon radishes were new to me but added just the right flavor. The limited ingredients in this dish allowed me to taste them all. I paired the dish with a chai tea, which was just right. I can't wait to travel to this small town again someday and enjoy the patio of Bittersweet Cafe!

Bittersweet has become a staple to my week. So look forward to getting a delicious vanilla latte or honey lavender and a fresh veg on an everything bagel. Great atmosphere, great people, and always the perfect start to my day!
