Great sandwiches, salads, and desserts. I have never had a bad meal here. It gets crazy at the peak of lunch, so try to get there before noon. If you have time and not too full from lunch, walk across the way and get a cupcake from Casey's Cupcakes. You won't be disappointed with either!!

Simon's menu board has so many delicious sounding menu items that stay out of the line until you have decided. Staff are really nice and service is quick. You order at the counter and can get food to go, eat outside and enjoy people-watching or eat at the indoor wooden booths or tables. They have a great vegetarian black bean... More

They have the best croissants! Breakfast meals were excellent, too, and portions were filling. Great coffee.

It is a nice place to go for lunch. Priced reasonably, casual or business dress. Great for down town Riverside. Nice business lunch or on a fun date or get together.

They do have a boat load of people working here and I truly don't think they could be more efficient. Its just a popular place and its down town where people work and play! They have savory sandwiches at decent prices. It's worth a try if you don't mind standing in line (especially weekday lunch hour) and you dont mind... More

This is our favorite place for sandwiches, whether meeting friends for lunch or ordering a take-out sandwich for our road or plane trip the next day. The breads, which are baked on site, distinguishes Simple Simon's from other delicatessens. Our favorite "take-out" sandwiches for road/plane trips are the roast beef and curried turkey with veggies as our selected side. Side... More

We wanted a quick lunch and this spot was great. Nice staff and great sandwiches and bakery items. It is in the plaza next to the Mission Inn. It is just across from Kelly's spa and Casey's cupcakes. Convenient for breakfast or lunch if you do not want to eat in the hotel.

Was not able to eat their highly rated sandwiches as we were there early and only breakfast was served. The breakfast menu offering was varied and the food good with generous portions. The bakery items were fresh and tasty.

One of the best Bakery Deli place at Mission Inn down town Riverside area. This is our 3rd time here ordering almost everything in the menu and they are all delicious. Price is moderate, service is fast and friendly, ambiance is good. Will definitely come back and highly recommended.

We go there about once a month just for a sandwich. But you can buy desserts or just a loaf of bread. Everything is so fresh and they have great Vegetarian options as well.
