This is a nice lunch spot. Sort of a non-chain soup and sandwich place. The soup, Broccoli cheddar was pretty good. Certainly filling, lots of veggies in it,maybe a tiny bit too much. The 'cup' size was adequate for me. The Cuba Libre sandwich was quite good also. I would not hesitate to eat here again.

My friend and I were looking for a place to eat on a late Saturday afternoon. We got off the freeway at Dover and plugged in restaurants in Dover, OH on TripAdvisor. Our first choice was closed for some unknown reason so we gave the Bread Head a try. I think they roll up the sidewalks in Dover on Saturdays... More

I ordered the lonely hearts club sandwich and the roasted mushroom soup. The sandwich was average at best and would have benefitted by being on better bread, but soup was amazing.

Bread Head Bistro worked as a meeting place for travelers coming from different places. Trip Advisor reviews brought us to Bread Head, and we were not disappointed. Three lunches, all different, all very good. I chose soup-of-the-day, tomato and pepper as well as an order of avocado toast. This proved to be a tall order as the toast would have... More

This is one of my favorite go-to cafes when I'm back home in Ohio visiting family. I know they have what I want, not to mention I've always loved their homemade breads. I miss having a Bread Head around in my day-to-day life! I miss their coffee, and I hope to be back to Ohio soon to visit once again.

First impression was great, until I looked around and seen the prices and that nobody was in their to buy product , just to get a coffee or tea etc. The cases are very well kept and displayed nicely. The selection was fair and looked fresh no stale product. The prices for a small town is a little high for... More

Yeah, the Hippie Bread is pretty good. Actually, all of the bakery items that I have tried at Bread Head are pretty good. I need to try some of their various sandwiches. Service has always been friendly and prompt. Location is good, I have always found parking. It always has a good crowd. Best bakery selection earlier in the day.... More

When my best friend moved to Marietta I was afraid we would not see much of each other. One solution is to meet for lunch halfway between Akron and Marietta and New Philly has a number of interesting choices. We very much enjoyed lunch at Bread Head Bistro--at least once we found it. The sign is just a chalkboard at... More
