The owner is french and he brought his techniques and taste and the result is delicious food and coffee. The bread is the best; as good as any to be had in Seattle or San Francisco, and Paris too. Delicious pastries; not the ultra-artistic looks of many we saw in Paris this year, but the flavor is every bit as good. Even the salad dressing has a je ne sais quoi flavor that makes it delicious (and makes me understand I will never duplicate what the French can do with simple foods).
For breakfast, there are a half-dozen french egg dishes on offer. Most people have a pastry, but on weekends especially the breakfast business is brisk.
There are only four or five sandwiches at lunch, but all very good; I prefer the ham and comte with dressed arugula on baguette. Every day they offer two soups; one is always vegetarian, if not vegan. The Bread Peddler now offers wine with lunch, and you can choose between two or three cheeses to have with breakfast or lunch.
Staff are friendly and efficient; many are long-term employees, so that tells you something. Each dish prepared individually so a little slower than some locations abut not problematic and the quality is worth the extra few minutes.
