This place seems to be a wanna be. My wife and I shared the chicken and goat cheese sandwich. We both found it to be bland. The bread was good and sandwich size was good. Chicken had no flavor. Pret a manger sandwiches may be smaller, but are much tastier. Too bad there weren't any nearby.

Nothing awful but nothing to write home about. Tomato soup was unimpressive. Sandwich was okay but nothing special. Too many choices around to go back here.

Had lunch here arriving about 1pm. All but two salads were sold out and I got the last of one of them! The lentils and feta as well as the chicken curry are excellent , well seasoned and lots of chicken in the curry.

Nice salads, sandwiches and other things where the main thing is bread. Soups also available. You can even get a guacamole side with bread. Or egg salad, or salads, or whatever... Nice industrial chic arrangement with nice cool service.

I recently visited the Breadline for lunch with a group of friends. The ordering went fast and we were lucky to find a table. I ordered the tuna sandwich on olive bread which was really excellent! The olive bread was very tasty with a good amount of the tuna salad on it. They don't skimp! Looking forward to trying other... More

Middle Eastern Chicken Salad excellent. French fries made to order were some of the best in the City. Seating a bit cramped but primarily a business lunch crowd with short timefrrames for dining.

This place was recommended to me as a good lunch place. Went during lunch hour with lots of office workers in the area. The line for ordering was civil and moved quickly but table space was scarce and it was terribly noisy. Lots of choices but they didn't have the tuna sandwich today altho it was on the menu. So...

We came here around the lunch hour after passing by the White House. It was packed with local business people, but the service was very fast. There is seating available inside and out - an additional small 2nd level in the back where the bathrooms are. The chicken avocado sandwich was tasty. The warm turkey sandwich was delicious. The seafood... More

I was looking forward to the falafel piadine, however, this was just a black hole of taste and flavor. Absolutely zero taste to the croquettes, the flatbread was so dry, and the tzatziki sauce... was that even tzatziki sauce or just white paste? I could only eat a quarter before my mouth got bored. They do give you a generous... More

My lunch at Breadline last week--salmon sandwich, mascarpone cookie, and bottled tea--was fine but not the delicious food I recall from lunches here years ago. The bread is still good, but my sandwich filling was salty and not that tasty. I checked the thick layer of green leaves in my sandwich twice to see if it really was watercress, because... More
