Always reliable - solid menu

The bakery is well-known as a stop-over for weekend bicyclists (as is Robert's Market across the street). They have a very good breakfast, but I think their strength is lunch. A variety of choices, some of which are not your typical lunch-spot fare. I would recommend them for the food, and... read more

We love this place. Dinner options are great (perhaps the best roasted chicken I have ever had), but weekend breakfasts are really awesome. Save room for the homemade popover that they serve with butter and jam

If you have lots of dough, you can purchase a lot of baked dough. Not only pastries but oven-baked pizza in the afternoon.

Wonderful, freshly made pastries and coffee. Also, nice breakfast menu but be sure you are hungry. The Apple Struessel is out of this world good!!

Very expensive. Almost zero almond paste in croissants and bear claws nada filling. Better at a grocery store. Way low quality for way too much money.

Comfortable restaurant with good food and great wine by the glass. I had a great lamb chop salad. Well priced and lots of lamb.

Woodside Bakery is one of our favorite places to grab a casual dinner out--not too fancy, but still feels exciting and special. The salads are to die for--favorite one is the Chinese Chicken Salad. Everything feels really fresh and quality. The food is generally pretty simple, nothing will surprise you, but executed really well and very consistently. Bread and pastas... More

If an eatery were to be judged solely by the look of the food, this one would get 50 stars. Raul was very helpful, and substitutions were NO problem. The taste of the food matched the look. It was delicious - so said everyone in our group. We didn't sample the baked goods, but felt like we gained 10 pounds... More

We have been coming here forever. Tonight we were seated in the bakery section Where people come and go by the front door. Terrible Seats but better than the seat she wanted to give us. Terrible Hostess! We watched at least two tables move. Service was awful. We have never had such horrible service. Let's see, an elderly gentlemen sat... More

Raul did a nice job as our server. The Fettucine Bolgone was very good. Great meatballs! The dinner salad was enough for two people. Chocolate Mousse was delicious. Will return next time we are attending an event at the Pioner.
