Perfect for lunch

Lots of salads and sandwiches with the personal touch not found in the chain restaurants of cuisine. All meals are large, so keep that in mind when ordering.

Can't begin to say how disappointed we were with the quality of the bread today. My wife and I ordered two sandwiches to-go, and as we waited for our order we started to notice how pale and un "old world" style the bread looked on the display racks. The bread here was always nicely crusted and hearty, but no more.... More

Dear Guilderland Bob: Thanks for reaching out to us. We haven't changed anything with our bread recipes, bakers, or process. Noah has been our head baker for about 16 years now, and he continues to make bread and oversee his team. Nevertheless, as a bread guy, you probably know that making bread from scratch is as much art as science.... More

The pros... This restaurant is in a large strip mall, Stuyvesant Plaza, so there's plenty of parking. You order at a counter & when they call your name, you pick up your food. It's casual like a Panera Bread in that you can sit there for a while if you want to chat. As this place started as a bakery... More

Dear FBA5: Thank you for reaching out to us. I am sorry to hear that our chairs are not comfortable for you. One of our regular guests recently told me that the banquette against the wall is quite comfortable, and you may find this to be more comfortable on your back.

My family ate here recently as we passed through Albany. We had eaten here before and were not disappointed we came back again. I had the spicy tuna sandwich and it was excellent. My other family members said the same about their sandwiches. We frequent Panera back home and this was much better. Our service was very good, fast, and... More

I'm an anti-Panera Bread person, so was a little reluctant to go here, however my family talked me in to it. I'm very glad we went, food was great, a little pricey for sandwiches, but a much better deal and way better food than Panera.

Dear MiloisKing: Thanks for choosing Bountiful Bread. Although we compete in the same segment as Panera, our commitment to scratch baking everything but the croissants sets Bountiful Bread apart. Plus, we're locally owned and operated. We really appreciate the business and the great reveiw. Sincerely Brian White, VP White Management More

This place came highly recommended from a friend. We live 90 minutes away and happened to be in the neighborhood. Great quality food with some cool varieties of drinks and snacks. Well worth the wait in line. Will definitely come back

Bountiful Bread is located in Stuyvesant Plaza which is a nice change from the mall atmosphere. Lots of parking available. Customers order and pay for their food then pick it up at the counter when it is done similar to other restaurants like Panera's. I didn't hear when they called by name so my lunch set on the counter till... More

Really nice salads, sandwiches and paninis all made to order. Friendly folks. Fresh ingredients (especially the bread baked on premises). You come in, choose what you want, order, find a table, your name gets called when the food is ready. We all know and mostly love places like this - what sets this one apart is the freshness of the... More

Stopped in here after doing some shopping in Stuyvesant Plaza. Even at 2:00 the place had a nice sized crowd. One of us had the Spicy Tuna Melt and the other had the Classic Club. Both sandwiches were excellent with plenty of meat on them and toasted perfectly. Each sandwich comes with a size of pasta salad and free refills... More

The food was great. The service was great. The prices were reasonable. What more can I say. Think upscale Panera.

Dear Fred B: Thanks for the great review. We agree completely. There is a huge difference between a real scratch bakery and a place that serves pre-bagged soup and par baked bread, and we're glad you noticed and appreciate the difference. Sincerely, Brian White, VP White Management More
