Simple Simon's not only attracts locals, but many diners drive as far away as Redlands to enjoy this one-of-a-kind restaurant. It is very busy at traditional meal times, but so worth the wait!

Hearty sandwiches on homemade bread are the best and don't forget the deserts especially the Christmas cookies!

One of my favorite sandwich places to eat. It often has a line to the door but the food has always been delicious.

While Simple Simon's best known for their delicious sandwiches, I love their pastries! They are very popular so a wait for a table and usually to order is expected, but the service is excellent from there.

We have had the pleasure of eating at Simple Simons numerous times. The Breastfast are delicious and so tasty with a variety of choices. You walk up to place your order to very friendly young people then pass all the mouthwatering pastries on your way to pay. Lunch is just as tasty with numerous choices of sandwiches, pasta or potato... More
