We were happy to "find" this spot for lunch. Quite a few good choices at a semi-cafeteria format. Huge salads and a variety of sandwiches.

Always fresh breads, excellent foods, very clean and neat inside. Try not to go during lunch rush, it gets crowded quickly. Always willing to answers questions and provide assistance.

Dear Robin S: Thank you for the excellent review. The couches were certainly comfy, but they had to go. Those soft surfaces are good for homes and low volume restaurants, but it's difficult to keep couches and soft chairs clean enough (because of food crumbs'...More

I usually describe Bountiful Bread as a upscale better version of Panera. I have had catering as well as normal meals here and never been disappointed. I would highly recommend to any and all.
