My dear friends and I dine together once a month on a Monday to catch up and drink wines. Trying to find a nice restaurant open on a Monday is sometimes a trick,so we were thrilled to find that Bread & Bar was open on Mondays. The menu is small and the food is also small in portion but the flavors were outstanding. One really doesn't need the outrageous portions you see at chain restaurants. Our server Paul was wonderful...smiles, knowledgeable of the menu and wines, and didn't hover nor ignore. The owner came out to each table to see how everything was to our liking which was nice. Try the french onion purses...presentation is wonderful and they melt in your mouth! We will be back often and are anxious to try other items on the menu!

My husband and I moved to St. Joe, MI from Chicago about 6 months ago and had dinner here for the first time tonight. It really reminded us of great tapas/ small plate restaurants in the Chicago neighborhoods we used to frequent. They had a good beer and wine selection and good wine pours. The service was excellent as was the food. Nice loft-like atmosphere right on the river. We didn't agree with the review that it was too pricy for what you're getting - it's special food with fine ingredients, and it's something unique. We will be back.

This is a really creative place. Dishes are beautiful and delicious. Portions are a little smaller, but the quality is undeniable. Don't forget to try one of their desserts.

We did not even know this restaurant was nearby when we tried to have a nice lunch over the holiday weekend in downtown St. Joe. This was a very pleasant suprise the moment we walked in the door. EXACTLY what we were looking for to sit outside, look out over the water, modern atmosphere, oh and yes, Great Food. We had the smoked whitefish salad, grilled cheese and sun dried tomato soup, turkey sandwiches and some delicious coconut cheesecake. If you are in the area, stop in.

Have been 4 times now and each has provided more and more. The Tartine bread is really a good start and easy to share with others. The smoked whitefish salad with maple vinaigrette is something that I will go back for. Well rounded and filling - the fish was not too smoky or too fishy and the walnuts with cranberries adds a crunch. My wife enjoyed the mussels and is one of the only places in the area to have decent mussels. I had the hanger steak which was well prepared and cannellini beans were a great accompaniment. The short cake for dessert is good but not so sure if they are truly MI strawberries. Beer selection is minimal but offered right brain brewery IPA. Wine selection is well rounded. Overall the place is new and adds a great place to eat with family, friends or significant other. We will definitely be back as this is one of the best if not the BESTrestaurant in Benton Harbor. The only suspect thing is the local condo building directly behind.
