Visited recently for lunch on a gray, dismal winter day; I immediate felt the warmth of this charming place. The food is very good and there are several choices to pick from. A local gem not to be missed.

Terrific breads, YUM! They also have cookies that are great. I like getting special breads and rolls here around the holidays or if going to a friends for dinner. People sometimes forget it is here, but it's just perfect because the owner totally gets it. Ive et her and she has a passion for doing THIS right. I overheard her... More

Sandwiches are great here. Always lots of meat and the bread is so fresh. Great service and hope they never go away.

I had one of the best sandwiches I have ever had at Great Harvest. The fresh baked bread was heavenly, the meat was cooked and sliced to perfection, the price was right. Perfect. I see why it's a great favorite with the locals. Fortunately, I have a cousin in Lexington, so I'll get to go back.

We stopped in on the early side of lunch and ordered a number of different sandwiches. The chicken/cranberry salad on sourdough was excellent. The brie and granny smith apple was good too. My friends had tuna on wheat and really liked the tuna and bread. So, overall, a very good lunch experience.

Was walking around Lexington hungry and stopped here for a bite. Ordered a Turcado (avocado with turkey). It was fresh and tasty. Second day ordered a delicious butternut squash/apple juice soup. Staff is friendly and efficient.

I love their multigrain loaves, but the sandwiches are excellent as well.( I didn't like the breakfast sandwiches tho.)

For a guaranteed delectable sandwich, look no further than this tiny but terrific local shop. When there's no time to sit down in a restaurant, stop at Great Harvest Bread for a quick, inexpensive and scrumptious lunch or snack.

Our group of twenty-six visited Lexington in late June and pre-ordered our lunches from Great Harvest. The boxed lunches were ready for pick-up when we arrived, and the staff of GH had everything for us ready to go! We had a variety of sandwiches including turkey, roast beef, tuna salad, chicken salad, and ham, and every single person within the... More
