Bread, Cookies, Pie OH My!

Okay, so...it`s all good - the salads, the sandwiches, the soup, the cookies. Vegetarian sandwich with roasted veggies...yum, Lamb Sandwich was good - though, I raise sheep and thought the lamb was a bit

Tasty food, great choice, excellent service. 4 of us lunched here yesterday, enjoyed it very much. The fresh fruit additions to the sandwiches were a great option. Very friendly staff. We look forward to returning.

We came for lunch. Paid parking just outside the restaurant. We got there around 11:30 so the line wasn't too bad. Around noon it was packed. Food was ok. I had the Italian (something) and it was just ok. Bread was hard. One of the other guys didn't even finish his salad (had fruit in it). Cookies were just ok.... More

Although breakfast was included in our hotel stay, the quality of the breakfast food there was nothing compared to the quality of the food HERE. Skip the free breakfast - which may not be worth it, ironically - and head over to Simple Simon's. The food - eggs, bacon, and typical breakfast fare - was fresh, simple, and terrific. The... More

The sourdough bread for sandwiches is really good. The crust is a bit to chew but totally makes the sandwich. Fresh ingredients, great desserts and a hip staff.

I met a friend at Simple Simon's for lunch. It is an old, quaint soup, salad and sandwich spot right by the Mission Inn. There were a couple of people in front of us when we got there, as we waited to order at the counter, the line ended up going out the door. I ordered the Grump's Lunch -... More

Nothing special to say about Simple Simon's except I felt comfortable there: food is simple, products are fresh and it was perfect for a light lunch or an early breakfast... Definitely worth the trip.

This restaurant has been consistently good over the many years we have been going there. If there's anything negative to say, it is that when you go on the weekend this place is crazy busy. Get there early! The food is always very good. We went as part of a group today and the soup, sandwich and salad we each... More

We went there around lunchtime and were really hungry. Having seen the recommendations here we decided to stay even though I looked very crowded. It was more than worth it! Food arrived much quicker than expected, portions were so humongus that I ordered way to much. The two of us ordered three sandwiches and had enough food for the entire... More
