    I don't know how these guys stay in business. Someday, someone is going to drop one of their sourdough rolls on his or her foot, be crippled for life, and sue them. Those rolls are completely inedible. You need diamond-edged tools to cut them, and you'll require major dental work if you manage to get a bite out of them.

    The crust on all their bread is like that, so even if you get the multigrain bread on your sandwhich, it will have this stainless steel crust that ruins the sandwich.

    I always order soup so I have something to soak my bread in to soften it up. I wouldn't go back at all except that my wife really likes their salads and I don't mind their soups.

    Just avoid the bread. It's really bad. At least now they give you a choice between side-orders so you don't have to eat the bread.

    PROS: Soups and salads
    CONS: Ironically, their namesake bread is the worst thing they serve!

    The food is great, and the smell is wonderful. I love everything that this place has to offer. The employees are very nice. The only thing that I don't really care for is the parking lot, it can be difficult to get in and out of when it's busy and the lot is a little small. But other than that this place is great.

    PROS: Great food
    CONS: Small parking lot
