“Not a Supper Club, but it's a good Cafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

This restaurant has been in the AV for almost 2 decades. It still has incredible bread and baked goods. If you are there on a day when they make the rosemary-raisin bread, OMG, be certain to order some to take home.

I love the baby grand salad and either a soup or a sandwich. The turkey sandwich with the cranberry walnut chutney is fantastic, especially if you can have it on the aforementioned rosemary-raisin bread. I prefer it with light mayo and no tomato since I put the chutney on the sandwich.

Years ago, I loved coming here for dinner, but I was disappointed by a dry, over cooked salmon when I ate dinner here in Feb. In the past, salmon has been one of my favorite dinner choices. Maybe I just hit it on a bad night.

Have lunch here for certain. The sandwiches and choices that include the tempting bread are always fabulous.

Try a desert. There are some delicious choices. They change, so look to see what is offered. I'm hoping to visit again to see if dinner items have gone back up in quality. I hope so. There are so few choices for good food in the AV.

I will mention that the "supper club" and totally "grandma style" Italianate decor is a bit off-putting. Try to ignore it if you can. It looks so dated. The previous incarnation on the east-side was bright, light and unpretentious. I wish that the owner would not try to "upscale" because it's a bit odd and makes me slightly embarrassed for the fact that I like to eat here. I never felt that about the old location.

The comforting, casual food is good, try to focus on that.

“Odd name, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

I really like the food. There is nothing "express" about them. Its a sit down lunch or dinner type place - the lunch prices are more reasonable. The food is worth it. My service has ranged from "average to excellent" never bad service.

“Great food & reasonable prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

This is the same place that was over on the East side a few years ago. Same great food & waitresses! Salads are yummy and the sandwiches are made with fresh baked bread. Great dessert selection too.

“Supper Club? Not!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

The restaurant is billed as the AV Bakery Express and Supper Club. We went because of the reviews we had seen, but the entire experience was a big disappointment. The food was not good. Two people in our party had the same entree, complained about the taste to the server and nothing was done, this despite the fact that the owner walked around the dining room several times, but did not approach anyone's table. My entree was supposed to be pan seared scallops, but they were overcooked, no sear on them, hardly any sauce and the saffron rice was dry. The restaurant was nearly empty on a Friday night, and with good reason. The restaurant's name is confusing, as is the location. The desserts were just ok, but the bread was the best item at the restaurant. Prices are high for the quality of the food.
