Surprisingly good spot near campus with excellent food from sandwiches to fish/steaks. Great casual spot for lunch/dinner. Very busy for both so make reservations.

We recently ate at Mayfield Bakery for breakfast. It was lovely to sit outside where there was plenty of seating. Everything we ordered was delicious- fresh squeezed orange juice, scrambled eggs whites, granola and yogurt, hot chocolate, and strawberry French toast. But these items added up to $57 for breakfast. The orange juice alone was $7. Service was very spotty.

Local family took us here for dinner. We found the atmosphere charming and the service good. We had a nice bottle of wine and all five of us ordered the fried chicken special-- it was out of this world! We really had a lovely evening there and complimented our aunt on her choice.

The food here is excellent and fresh. The recipies are slightly original without being over the top. The atmosphere is slightly formal, which is good for a work meal. The prices are set accordingly. I doubt I would bring the family here but it is great for working meals.

OK -- so it's in a shopping center. But that doesn't keep it from being a great restaurant for California cuisine. Fresh local ingredients, low calorie, great tastes. You don't have to partake in the bakery aspect, but if you do, that's good too. Nice to sit outside for lunch (in spite of the shopping center, tables are under a... More

My son and I had brunch yesterday at Mayfield. We went around 12:30 and there was a wait to sit outside - but the hostess will take your cell phone and text you when your table is ready so you can go browse the nearby shops. So far so good. The outdoor patio is near the entrance to the mall,... More

We love the food and lively atmosphere at Mayfield Bakery and Cafe. The Bakery is worth a stop and especially if you have a an addiction to authentic cannele. These little bites of delectable French cakes rock with their coffee. The outdoor tables are nice in good weather and a bit quieter than inside the cafe. A great local fav... More

We come to the bakery with our 2 year old often on weekends. The bakery is one of the only places that is open at 7am on a Saturday, and it never disappoints. They usually have a heavenly vegetable quiche that she devours, and good cappuccinos for us. The breads and croissants are fresh, made each morning, and I try... More

After hearing great reviews about this restaurant we finally got to the Mayfield Bakery And Cafe. We made a reservation which was very smart. We got an early reservation and it was still crowded. We chose to sit at the bar which turned out to be more fun. The food is so good. As of now it is our favorite... More

This is a good restaurant and bakery, We have gone several times and have not been disappointed. On a nice day you can sit outside, they have good salads, and the bakery is very good.
