Great Harvest has a wide variety of sandwiches to choose from, with all the trimmings, served up on fresh bread, with a smile. It's a great place to stop and eating at a table next to the sandwich bar, and they also have cold drinks and hot coffees. it's also great if you need a hearty sandwich to take on... More

Great Harvest has excellent breads, giant cookies, and lots of other goodies. They'll give you a sample to try before you buy. I particularly like their raison, walnut rustic bread and their oatmeal raison cookies.

Such a wonderful selection of breads. The samples offered were both sweet and hardy. We ended up with a parmasian loaf that was delicious for dipping in olive oil and sauces. Can't wait to return.

I come here for lunches with my children. It's very nice to have such fresh ingredients and wonderful bread. It's usually extremely full and there's always a lot going on but the delicious food really brings out the best. White chocolateCherry bread is good good good

Great bread, excellant service. Ask for a sample and they hand you a huge chunk of bread and ask if you want butter or honey to put on it. Love it.

I visited this bakery in my hometown, on the recommendation to try the cinnamon chip. I fell in love! Nice, bustling clientele, lovely baking smells inside the store, a VERY cheap cup of drip for the wait ($1), and energetic staff add up to a delightful visit. I love stopping by the store for a treat of specialty bread.
