Enjoyed a delicious salad and 1/2 chicken salad sandwich for lunch on Thursday, 2/1/24. My husband had a bison burger (offered on special menu) and a bowl of broccoli cheese soup. Everything was really tasty and fresh. I also took home 3 loaves of their...delicious pretzel braid bread. It freezes well and we can enjoy it alongside soups or with sandwiches this winter! Very friendly staff and great healthy meal options.More

I can’t say enough positive things about my experience there this afternoon. The food was superb! I was there for happy hour and got the beer cheese pretzel bread appetizer (it’s a delicious and large) and the pick 2 combo with half an order of...bison ravioli and half a Greek salad. The ravioli was my favorite I have ever eaten anyway (and I love ravioli). The citrus sauce was surprisingly perfect. I also had the cinnamon haze beer and it’s great for an exotic beer experience. The staff were great. The guy was who the cashier was so nice and helpful. The employees seem to like working together and worked collaboratively bussing the tables. In summary, I would drive out of my way to go here again. If you’re in the area, it’s a must.More

A highlight of our trips from Santa Fe to CO is Simple. It makes our trip fun and easy. Try the pulled pork sandwich or the beef stroganoff.

Obviously, a popular place and for good reason. Order at the counter and then get full service. I had the chicken salad sandwich with homemade bread with a side of heirloom tomato bisque, both of which were fantastic. Service was good.

This place serves excellent gluten-free bread, the driving force for our visit. The sandwiches and soups were outstanding, and there is also a cool ambience with the older buildings on Main St. We've been here a few times, and it never disappoints.

Great food and atmosphere. Staff was very friendly. We had burgers which were top notch and some local beers. Outside seating area is also very nice, great for small or large groups.

We had the most amazing lunch. The entire family loved theirs meals. Super fresh and premium ingredients. The smell of fresh bread fully dominating the morning air. Could not be beat. A must stop if you visit BV

The food was okay but not particularly flavorful. The young lady at the desk where we ordered was a bit curt and lacking in customer service skills. There are friendlier places to eat with more exciting food choices.

You have loads of options in BV for early coffee and healthy food all day long. But Simple Eatery is my first choice. The coffee is perfect. Get the monkey bread! Worth every delicious gooey calorie. I came her alone this morning because I knew...the staff would be welcoming and kind- and they were just that! Last week we were here with family and kiddos! We had such a variety of food and all the plates were licked clean. 5 stars!More

Delicious sandwich, soup and GOODIES! There's a half and half option, but the full sandwich comes with a cup of soup that trumps the half and half. The Redbird Chicken and the Steak-and-Potatoes soup were amazing.

Fantastic food on a Sunday evening. The family enjoyed river rainbow trout with almonds, penne pasta, noodle soup and vegetable chilli between us. All superb and served with lovely fresh bread. Our GF diner was not left out either. Service was so friendly. We bought...bread for breakfast the following day. Highly recommend this charming place.More

They make a decent chicken salad sandwich. And their carrot coconut soup is very good. I complained that last time I ate here the soup was only lukewarm. They responded by upgrading from a cup to a bowl of soup. And the soup was served...hot this time. Reasonably fast service if there isn't a huge line to order.More

I had the greek salad and the seasonal pasta (which was an alfredo primavera). Both were amazing!!! I thought the portion size was great too, not to big but I still had some pasta leftover. I was being indecisive and they offered me a test...of the carrot coconut soup which I ended up getting a cup to go for lunch the next day. Someone's review compared it to Panera Bread and as someone who grew up on St. Louis Bread Company. I would have to say it's more along the lines of original Bread Co. vs. Panera (if you know, you know!). Definitely find a new spot to eat or pick up a soup on my trips to Denver : )More

Yes, as the other folks indicated, I'm not sure if they accept reservations, or not. If you're worried give them a call. The number of indoor table is limited, but we've never had trouble getting a seat. Good luck and enjoy... More
