We have been there twice and I don't think I would go back. The first time I had split pea soup and my husband and I shared the BLT sandwich. The soup was so thick you could eat it with a fork. Not the way it should have been. The sandwich was ok but nothing great the bread is cut... More

I have been asked to meet here for the last several weeks and after coming at different times of the day a on different days of the week have come to the conclusion that their set is just plainly chaotic. Kids and teens might be fine with it but I find the place just an overall unpleasant experience. The food... More

I love this place. You'd really never know what was in there until you go In it. A French twist with good sandwiches, soups and pastries. Definitely a great little place for Sunday brunch. We've had dinner in the bistro also and enjoyed it. Once again, French!! It's a casual place

We have been to the Bread Peddler several times each time thinking that the terrible service and attitude was behind us. Staff are not all that helpful or friendly, they are so bored and act as if you are bothering them when placing your order or have questions. On one visit we ordered the Croque Madame, a lovely ham and... More

I visited the latest addition to the Bread Peddler ... The Creperie .. and what a wonderful experience. Crepes (pancakes) both sweet and savoury every bit as good as the originals in Brittany, France. Washed down with a Mimosa (Champagne & Orange Juice .. delicious.

I have been here before and had sandwiches and pastries but always have left feeling that it could be so much better. Another try with friends who love this place left me feeling about the same although this time I could bite through the bread so it was easier to eat my sandwich without locking my jaw. I love good... More

This charming European style eatery is a filled with atmosphere, delicious pastries, very good quality meals AND great espresso! They have an excellent menu with high quality ingredients. It is very busy & full up at certain times but worth the wait.

We ate at the Bread Peddler Bistro connected to the bread Peddler and had poached eggs and the best bacon EVER. Very well done but the atmosphere and prices were a bit too much and we wish we had just eaten at the main peddler. They did have mimosas which was also nice however.

Had dinner here twice once as a couple and then two weeks later a family dinner for 7. The decor is excellent and redolent of an old time French restaurant. This doesn't somehow continue into the ambience or service. Very little exchange with the waiting staff, I would have liked more information about the menu. I could, of course, have... More

This is a great addition to Olympia restaurant fare. The menu is simple with soup and sandwich choices. There are also slices of various kinds of quiche. Of course, the bread is excellent as are all the special desserts and pastry selections. It reminds me of a boulangerie in Paris. A simple lunch will be around $10, more if you... More
