Divine!

I adore the chocolate croissants, lunch sandwiches and the coffee. The poached eggs on toast with balsamic reduction and goat cheese is divine. Seating is limited and can be tight with the long line so we don't often go with our young family. We wish we could go more and will when our kids are... read more

Seating is limited and can be tight with the long line so we don't often go with our young family. We wish we could go more and will when our kids are older!

Had an early lunch here and the three of us has superb meals. One vegetarian with numerous choices, hot and cold sandwiches, quiche, and great pastries/cookies. There were plenty of choices with good sized portions and very fresh ingredients. They also offer breakfast, which we were too late for, and dinner on a couple of evenings. Based on lunch, it...

awesome pastries, sandwiches, soups, quiche~ everything is very fresh. Their homemade bread is incredible,. great place for lunch. a little pricey and has a tendency to be packed at lunchtime, though.

Thursday through Saturday nights you can experience the most amazing French food in their new Bistro. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, the staff is knowledgeable and attentive (Roman and Ariel) are both very friendly and make your dining experience incredible. Ok, so lets talk about the food! The menu is small but filled with such amazing choices. The french... More

There is no question, they have the best bread in town. If the buying area could be arranged better to speed up the buying process it would be better.

OK, if you're not from Olympia that last part won't work for you. But part of the charm of the Bread Peddler is that it's in Olympia, where there are about two degrees of separation between everyone. The other part of the charm is some awesomely delicious croissants and pastries. I haven't eaten too much in the way of non-pastry... More

Both were delicious and even even the side salad of greens was amazing. Perfect latte. Friendly relaxed vibe. The only downside is you order and then sit down. The... More

I took a group here for a brunch. we had a good selection of sandwiches and breakfast items. The bread was tasty and the pastries good. Service was good and attentive A good place to stop for a quick breakfast which I believe is their best feature. The coffee is good and access to water plentiful. I will be back

The Bread Peddler is a wonderful place to get a great sandwich a loaf of bread or a quick sweet snack. It has a nice atmosphere but is on the smaller side and seems crowded most of the time you are in there, very difficult to form a line. The clerks could definitely be more attentive and responsive it almost... More

The food & service are always Very good. Finding seating can be a little tricky, but still doesn't deter us from stopping in for lunch. Great quiches, salads, sandwiches & so many delicious pasties that its always hard to decide what to get. We typically end up buying a loaf a bread to take home as well - always Fantastic.
