The coffee is from Peet's, which I find a bit strong. Good selection of bread and rolls. Can opt for soup and sandwich or salad and sandwich. Offer a selection of bagels. Parking is plentiful in the lot behind the restaurant.

The best place to go for freshly baked sourdough bread and seasonal muffins. Good soup and sandwich selections for lunch or light dinner.

I always like Le Boulanger Bakerys. They are a small, hometown cafe, where you know the limited menu is good, food is made fresh, and all this in a big town. Their baked goods (bread) is delicious, as are the pastries. We go there for breakfast or lunch. They make different coffee drinks, too. The employees are local and all... More

Clean and pretty quiet environment to enjoy a simple meal. Delicious array of breads and pastries. Sour dough excellent. Close to shopping. Prices great!

I live nearby and frequently go here for a quiet place to work on my laptop and eat a breakfast sandwich. The breakfast food is ok. The lunch food is good. Here's the mystery I can't solve: why don't they update the place? It feels out dated and neglected. With other restaurants on the same block with lines out the... More

Indifferent service, no "plating" at all - not even a slice of orange or a sprig of parsley? - and bland as well. Apparently it was even too complicated to stir the boiling water into the instant oatmeal mix?! We really thought we were going to La Boulange-where the pastries are terrific and the hot chocolate served French-style in a... More

Dislike: the service is so slow and they often seem confused. The tables often feel slightly unclean. LIKE: The food is consistently good.

I've been coming to Le Boulanger for many years and have enjoyed its food. There are many sandwiches, soups and salads to choose from that are usually fresh and tasty. Unfortunately, my last visit was disappointing. The person taking our order was impatient and unwelcoming. I considered talking to the manager, but when I looked at her name tag... she... More

My friend and I were "shopping" in downtown San Carlos and found ourselves looking for a lunch spot on a Sunday. My friend had been to this restaurant/bakery before and thought I would enjoy it. I had a very generous half sandwich (albacore) and a cup of tomato bisque soup. She had an albacore half sandwich as well. You order... More
