Excellent experience. Order up front, pay in back then wait for your name to be called. Robust menu for breakfast and lunch. Sandwiches are all stand-outs. My vegetarian on sourdough was one of the best I have ever had. Sourdough especially good. All sandwiches come with a side. I ordered the fruit which consisted of orange slices, grapefruit slices, strawberries,... More

Took the family by for a great lunch. Everything was delicious and we will be back. The boys loved the large quantity of food, and big selection of ingredients.

They bake interesting kind of bread daily. Chibata, Scones, crusty sour dough. Great choice of salads. European influence.

This family owned restaurant is one of Riverside's finest sandwich shops. Freshly baked breads, unique salads, fresh hot and cold soups, cold or grilled sandwiches with multiple options, and some of the most mouthwatering desserts you'd ever want to taste. Think Panera or Paradise Bakeries and then add a couple of Stars. They've been doing this for more than 30... More

I enjoy this place, is a great hangout to meet friends. The food is delicious, bread is fresh and the side orders and sweets are equally delicious. Beware, if you seat outside don't be surprised to have homeless ask for money. If you are okay with that the outdoors seating is great. The indoors have benches which are very roomy... More

My husband and I love the food. Home made baked goods are wonderful and the food is great. There is often a line, but it moves fairly quickly. They have seating both indoors and outside. Their breakfast offerings include omelettes and egg sandwiches as well as eggs, bacon, sausages and yummy fried potatoes. We love their fresh bread and raspberry... More
