Wonderful Breakfast & Lunch

I ate here several times! Breakfast sandwiches are awesome, lunch sandwiches were delicious and the coffee was great. Staff was helpful and friendly. Wish I had this place in my home town!

Food was nice after a long long line - I still don't understand why it took so long to get counter service - waiting waiting waiting - as I said, food up to standard but I wouldn't eat here again after the waiting time.

Tried this bakery for breakfast and lunch; good food and options, and large portions. This is a long time Riverside eatery, and we expected to have to wait awhile for seating, but not the case. Place your order at the counter and grab a seat. Bakery items look amazing.

When we stay at the Mission Inn, which is next door, we always have breakfast here. They have great bakery items for sale to take out. I usually get the breakfast that includes their sausage patty.

The croissants are so butter and flaky. The raspberry jam is excellent and tastes homemade. We stop here when we are in the area just to buy the croissants. Great pastries.

We enjoy coming here for early breakfast and late lunch. This place is always very crowded during peak lunch and breakfast times. They open at 7:30am on Saturday and we always make sure to be there around 7:30am to get a table and quicker service . Otherwise you might have hard time finding tables to sit. It's always a long...

I grew up in Riverside and have tried to enjoy this place. How can I? The food is bland and way overpriced. The service is embarrassing and there is limited seating. Try Delia’s grinders for much friendlier service and way better food at much more reasonable prices. Skip this place! I took my wife to all the places I’ve eaten... More

First the portions are huge! I ordered my kids half sandwiches and they could have shared that! The roast beef sandwich we ordered was very dry and hard to eat, as was the turkey sandwich. The tuna salad plate was good. The veggies and fruit with it were very good and fresh. It was expensive and I'm not sure it... More

We were recommended this from hotel staff. One of our better breakfasts on our vacation. Cool vibe. Very friendly staff who recognized us on the second day. Simply crazy since they are pretty busy. Food is WONDERFUL. I find myself even now CRAVING their croissant breakfast. Mmmm!
