This was a great spot for breakfast. Well worth a stop. You order at the counter the sit and they will bring it to you. Staff was great.

The perfect place to have a great meal and relax over your coffee and reading the newspaper. For people who are traveling this is a perfect find. You never feel awkward enjoying a meal alone.

I have eating here many times and have yet to be disappointed. I particularly like their vegetarian chili and their lamb sandwich.

The breakfast is amazing, you always find a queue but it moves very fast. The owner of the place is running the cashier not a very pleasant guy, but the food is worth it.

Super good espresso and we were able to find a vegan sandwich and salad and they were indeed fresh and flavorful. I wish there were just a couple more options and some vegan baked goods as well. The decor is comfortable warm and we really liked our roomy, big table. I'd go back if visiting Riverside again, especially with a... More

I took my family to see the Christmas decorations at the Mission Inn in Riverside and dropped in this place in the evening for dinner. It was crowded, but they turned the orders quickly. Although primarily sandwiches, the quality of the food was above average. Also, their menu was a little more gourmet than the typical sandwich shop. The overall... More

Was in the area for a conference next door at Mission Inn. Found this place and had several good lunches. Line can be a bit long at lunch but line moves quickly. Food is good quality and good portions. You order at counter and pay. Food is brought out to table. Nice selection of sandwiches, salads and soups.

Simple Simon's baked goods are very good. It's also a great place to stop by for a gourmet breakfast or a sandwich at lunchtime. It's right across the pedestrian mall from the Mission Inn so it's a very convenient option for hotel guests who want to try something different.

Everything is very fresh - from toppings/meats to the homemade bakery/breads. Their tarragon Chicken salad is my all time favorite, but honestly I don't think you could go wrong with any choice! inside booth seating or even better outside seating in the shadow of the Mission inn and orange trees on the pedestrian mall! Only open for breakfast and lunch... More

We love this place and go here whenever we are in Riverside. The bread is fresh baked as well as the cookies and pies. The sandwiches are huge and so yummy! Everything is fantastic!!
