Bringing back favorites

Many of my Thursday lunch group were unhappy that our favorites had been discontinued a few months ago. We decided to try Le Boulanger again and are pleased to see the Mango Strawberry Spinach salad is back. The roasted red pepper soup was quite good. The service is inconsistent.

Used to have good food and plentiful servings, but went there today and was supremely disappointed. The $10.50 salad had two cups of lettuce, no pecans (though advertised), no cranberries, and 2 measly quarters of a tomato. Soda was flat. Ice tea dispenser was empty. Plenty of better places to go nearby.

We stopped by on a Sunday morning for coffee and pastries. The pastries were really nice, but the coffee wasn't up to much. To top it off, the service seemed like we were putting them all out. There are other nicer places to go in the nearby area, so I wouldn't recommend this place.

The soup is good, but a little salty. California Turkey sandwich is yummy delicious!!! A little bit pricey, but good quality food.

We are quite happy with the kids lunch menu. If for any reason, I don't make lunch, I swing by. It includes a fresh sandwhich, cookie and a milk. It's a great value.

We were regulars here during our recent stay in San Jose.The food is excellent and the service friendly and efficient.My only criticism (and it's a criticism of other American eateries!!) is there are too many green leaves in the salads.Watching other diners it seemed that most people left them so why serve them? It spoils otherwise excellent salads.I for instance... More
