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

If you like great soup and sandwiches, visit Simple Simon's. During jury duty I visited many times. I highy suggest the gazpacho soup....it sells out quickly, so get there early. A half sandwich and soup is more than enough.Avoid the 12:00 court lunch hour, if possible!

When shopping in the mall and are hungry..walk in and select from amenu with a variety of options. Eat inside or outside. You won't be disappointed.

Simple Simon's is the restaurant we take friends and family from out of town to, and no one has ever been disappointed. Whether it has been for breakfast or lunch; or during the 'Festival of Lights' season when we get a night-time coffee and dessert, its truly deserving of its reputation as a very nice place to eat.

Everything is freshly baked or prepared. I've been there many times and never disappointed. Try a salad or I enjoy the grilled chicken pesto sandwich.

The breakfasts are simple but very good. Coffee is excellent and it is just a nice relaxing environment even when on a business meeting.
