Still, their bread and other products are delicious, but this location tends to be a bit rough around the edges. As a cafe, it's only okay, but the real reason to come back is their fabulous bread.

I have heard about this place for years, but I just went there today and left disappointed. We ordered two sandwiches and they initially only gave us one. I reminded them about the second one, and they served it up fairly quickly, but it was clear that they still weren't reading our order ticket. They added heaps of the one ingredient I asked them NOT to include in my original order, and, even though I removed it from my food, I still walked out of that place with an allergic reaction. Even if it hadn't been for that, the sandwiches were wimpy and the bread was so-so. We spent $18, had to tip up front, and bus our own table. I'm not going back, and it's too bad, because I was looking forward to enjoying this place.

I always get the reuben here. Or the egg sandwich. But either way, definitely get a cookie. Or two. I like to eat here.

Get there before noon if you don't want to wait in a long line. Their soups are the best -- and no waiting! I recommend getting a bowl of the daily soups (2 are offered, one is veggie), and a side salad. Ask for the soup first. All for $5.50! A great deal. Some of their servers have a bit of an attitude, but they are basically nice if you know what you want to order.

Pros: chocolatey treats, very fresh, delicious desserts

Cons: , uncomfortable seating, crowded

I love their sandwiches, but I will only treat myself to them every once in awhile because you can end up spending more than you might expect just for a sandwich and chips. I reccommend the egg salad sandwich on olive bread in a sack lunch though. Staff is super friendly and it has a nice, busy "meet your friends around the corner" feeling.

Editorial from

Grand Central's breads are commonplace at fine Portland restaurants, but visiting the source for a quick lunch (actually one of the sources; this regional chain has six Portland locations) is a little like making a pilgrimage. The bakery's…
