The food was lovely but the families seating area needs updating. There are either dark wooden booths or an open plan area that is very run down. Fix the latter and it would be much better. Also, there is a rather jobsworth guard who prevents you taking food upstairs to the families area. It is ok to purchase from the counters and eat in the singles area downstairs, why not upstairs I've no idea. Also, you are not made aware of this until you try to go upstairs - no signs!!

I went for a sit down lunch at this popular deli and bakery which is not far from downtown Riyadh. The Wooden Bakery has a high volume of customers but they seem to handle the customers very well. You actually order and pay for your food like a fast food restaurant. Their was a place designated for sit in customers which also had a good view of outside. The atmosphere feels relaxed despite the high volume of customers. As for the food, I had a burger and fries wanting to see how the in house buns tasted. The sandwich was good and fresh. Plenty of treats to grab on the way out. A full deli is also inside if you like cold sandwiches. Worth a visit!

Simply the best place for fresh baked bread. Excellent quality and great service. It never disappoints.

Only one branch is great, the first one on salhudeen road, the others are half as good, could be because of the locations near each other? But they are yet to open a branch on the west side of Riyadh, where the real critics live ;) we will see.

i've been to the Wooden Bakery a couple of times for lunch. The sandwiches are not so bad, although a bit expensive. Bakery is very good. Especially their cheese pie, and eclairs. Worth a visit once in a while. Good place for a light luch or dinner.
