An old friend fallen on hard times..

I have spent many wonderful lunches enjoying the soups and deli sandwiches at the Sunshine Bakery. It still has the best iced tea anywhere in my opinion. However, in recent years it seems to have fallen on sad times, and the once bustling restaurant and popular bakery now seem to be in a somewhat... read more

I believe that I am being kind giving this bakery an average rating and not a poor for only one reason. The potato soup is tasty. This bakery has seen better days (the 1980s, perhaps). This place is dark, outdated and uninspiring. Bakery products are just okay. Their products look as tired as the showcases they are displayed in. The... More

We ate there last week. The place was kind of dark so at first we did not notice how badly the place was run down. The table legs were rusty, the chai runs were dusty and the from window was dirty We used to eat there every time we were in Augusta for lunch but now we will find a... More

It had been awhile since I have eaten here and as I was downtown thought I would stop in for lunch. It was 2:30 and they close at 3:00, but not a sole was in the restaurant. The door was open as I guess they needed air circulation, the place was dark and dreary At first I thought their power... More

I would give them a minus rating if I could. The Reuben sandwich was cold, no dressing, not grilled, said that the cheese would be melted and it wasn't, ( they offered to microwave it some more. I mean WHO DOES THAT!!! We got lemonade and she came by and dumped water in it. When we told her she gave... More

Had a great soup of the day, which was lentil. Not my favorite, but I cleaned the bowl; thick and obviously home made. Had a combo plate of 3 "salad" sandwiches - egg, tuna and chicken. All could have had more "zing" - they were somewhat bland. However, they didn't skimp on the filling, and I couldn't finish these 3.... More

Food was disappointing. The soup came out cold and the sandwiches had little flavor. The interior could use an update. We used to enjoy this little cafe but it isn't what it used to be.

One of the small gems of downtown Augusta. Ready for a fabulous soup of the day and sandwich of your choice, this yummy deli will have you coming back for more. Don't forget to try the Daily Double and Sunshine Tea.

Sandwiches and soup combos are unique to this cafe. All the soups are homemade and good. I like the chicken salad sandwich and the potato soup.
