Place is so much better after the redesign, open and modern. The best salads and soups in the area. Love the outdoor seating in the summer/fall. Food is always ready fast, unless its lunch time during the week becuase of the business offices. Otherwise, love it.

Bountiful is a great place to stop in Stuyvesant Plaza for lunch. They are many different options, including salads, sandwiches, paninis, and great bakery options. The prices are definitely high for the area (average $11-$16) for one person, but everything is made to order, and the staff is always friendly. They have lots of seating and is the kind of... More

I hadn't been here in over a year, and they have completely redone the place. It looks absolutely beautiful and the food is still just as delicious as before. It always tastes so fresh and natural. The people are so nice and the workers are more than accommodating. Its a tad pricy but worth it for the foods quality.

The sandwiches, soups and salads are good, but the baked goods are incredible. They're gigantic, sweet, and sinful. The salads are huge, but the bread is so good I recommend getting a sandwich. The portions are large, but you pay for it. I used to think this place was expensive, but seeing how much Panera's prices have gone up recently,... More

Thought this place was kind of neat, we pulled into the plaza looking for some breakfast and liked the looks of this place. Had some nice breakfast options also had options for the Gluten Free folks. I went with the Quiche which was tasty and my partner did the Breakfast Sandwich which she quite enjoyed. I don't do coffee but... More

Dear David, Thanks for choosing Bountiful Bread. So glad you enjoyed Bountiful, the quiche and the egg sandwich. "Bottom of carafe coffee" is never good. We are always brewing fresh, so please let us know next time, and we'd be happy to brew a fresh pot for you. And thank you for noticing the passion of my crew members. We... More

Stopped in for lunch while visiting nearby. Had broccoli cheddar soup and the sandwich special which was a turkey reuben. Soup came with bread and sandwich was large and came with a pickle and chips so this was WAY too much to eat. Everything was delicious and service was great but it was expensive.

Dear Barbara, Thank you for the four star review. So glad to hear that service and food were great. I am sorry that you found Bountiful Bread to be expensive. We endeavor to keep prices as low as feasible, but our commitment to local produce, freshly baked bread, and a scratch philosophy does contribute to higher costs than some of... More

There is a good selection of sandwiches, all made from scratch. Like another reviewer I had the mozzarella and tomato with pesto on a baguette, and it was excellent. Coming from Boston, I had no problem with the pricing. The assistants were very friendly. The restaurant is, however, very austere with no atmosphere, and the chairs aren't that comfortable

Sorry to hear that you feel the space is austere, but that is something we're addressing with local artists. Check back when you're in town next. You may find the atmosphere has warmed up... More

This establishment is a really attractive, upscale, bakery cafe. For Lunch I enjoyed a fresh mozzarella and tomato with pesto on a baguette. All ingredients were fresh and flavorful. Did not give five stars for following two reasons: 1. somewhat pricey for this category of food; 2. limited vegetarian options. For a more meat protein oriented individual this of course... More

This place has great salads and sandwiches and is Panera-style with ordering up front and then picking up your order. However, it is WAY better than Panera, in quality of food, portion size, price, and atmosphere. The only downside is that it takes a long time to get your food during lunch-time (its packed).

Dear Aubrey: Thank you. Thank you! That's exactly what we're going for! In terms of the super busy lunch, we created an express register (the first one as you walk through the door) for those guests who use online ordering or call-in orders to expedite service. If you're pressed for time, feel free to use the service so you can... More

This used to be my go to lunch place. Pleasant, homey atmosphere and my favorite salad for a reasonable price. I went at least once a week, for over 5 years, and some of the long time staff knew me by name and order. I loved Bountiful Bread. Then they remodeled. I can't justify paying the new price for my...
