These are my favorite bagels in Seattle. The seeded bagels have generous coatings of the freshest poppy or sesame seeds.\r

The bagels are dense and chewy, and somewhat moist. \r

There is far more here than bagels of course. There

I like the bread and bagels here. They're particularly fresh and delicious. :) I think they make the cookies and pastries in house, too! Yum!

BUT, I would DEFINITELY stay away from the pasta salads (I think they don't switch them out often), some of the bars (they fluctuate in freshness) and the sandwiches (I've seen caked mustard flakes on some of mine - not super fresh!), and the soups aren't made there... I've seen the staff plop them in the cooker from a plastic bag... But that's what you get sometimes in a mom and pop shop.

Great ambiance and some fabulous items, but pretty lax cleansing routines and staff. MUCH better than some, though!

Make sure you get the cranberry bagel with butter, one of the oatmeal choc chip cookies, the lattes, and the kalamata bread! Wonderful!

Pros: lattes, bread, pastries, items that are baked daily

Cons: lack of tidiness and freshness of some products

This place is a mainstay for me. The bagels are the best around. The cinnamon rolls are what you want - big, fluffy, gooey, sweet and yeasty. Sandwiches are big and fresh.

Grateful bread has good sandwiches and baked goods and great coffee. The Cinnamon rolls are so yummy! Sometimes the service is slow when the line is long, but that's just because it is a very popular place in the Wedgewood community. There are always lots of kids and families here and they offer free wifi to customers so it's a great place to sit and work and sip your awesome coffee.

I love this place. I have since the day I randomly strolled in, got some coffee and a pastry. Although, I do think it put some extra pounds on me, I can never get enough of this place. The atmosphere is really like being at home in the family living room at a weekend cabin, only with pasteries. The owner, Rod, is extremely cool in a easy going way, although some of the employees come with what I have been told is called the "Seattle Chill." My advice: get used to it, it's Seattle, it's part of the local color. Back to the food, if it's Saturday and you've woken up late and are looking for brunch, I would suggest the pesto focaccia, a simple latte (sans flavor), and if you have no inhibitions a cinnamon roll to boot. DO IT! Breakfast for the early bird: bagels, bagels, bagels, and schmear (cin. & raisin or lox). But you know, the sugar cookies are really good too, as are the almond danishes, actually, all the pastries are good. It's really horriible. Oh yeah, and some are vegan friendly (try the 'Energy Buzz Bar"). Lunch: oh lunch, oh my, indeed where to begin, depends on the weather really. Is it cold? Soup and a grilled cheese sandwich (all the soups are worth killing for). Man hunger: the Grateful Club house. Fall time and not too cold: Turkey and cran, grannies favorite. They're all good really, but I'm a man of habit. Internet is free, but table space can be hard to come by if you stop by the hours of 11-2 or from 10-3 on the weekends. The passwords are usually pretty good for a laugh thanks to Rod. Overall great place to take friends, significant others, visiting family, and actually kids and dogs as well, although they do ask that your children remain on they're leashes outside. Just kidding, they have a play area for children, a plus for parents, a minus for non-breeders. Overall, if you haven't guessed yet, I would highly recommend this place. Cheers.

Pros: Food, Ambience

Cons: Seattle Service

All of their menu items are on the wall and they're not well lit, so it's very hard to read. When I asked for printed menu, they don't have any. They were willing to talk me through the menu, but problem is that I am deaf, so moot point. Since the place tends to be very popular, not enough patience for those who are disabled.

When the environment is just right (bright light coming in from outside, etc. and I'm able to see the menu to order food - the food tends to be excellent. Hard to rate it when having experienced frustration at times like not able to see the menu, etc. They most certainly have room for improvement.

My boyfriend and I always try to make it to the Greatful Bread Baaking company for their Challah bread. It is so delicious, and their soups are wonderful as well. I think the prices are a little high, but you really do get what you pay for because the quality of their breads and soups are wonderful. I had the sweet potato soup with chipotle once and it was outstnding. Expect large crowds, I don't think that I have ever been without waiting for a table, but it is well worth it.

Pros: best coffe shop in town

Cons: seating is tight

The Challah they make on Friday nights is great. I also enjoy their Sweet Potatoe soup with a little bit of the Rustic Brea. Bring your laptop, they have fee wi-fi, and cozy up in a corner with some soup on a rainy day.

Grateful Bread is an okay store. Ive ordered their sandwiches a few times now and they were pretty good. Ive also tried some of their pumpkin spice muffins and those tasted pretty good as well. Their prices are pretty reasonable. Their customer service is a bit mediocre though. Some of the employees are slow and seemed kind of grumpy.

What a great down to earth place. Bagels, bakery items, soups and sandwiches. My kids like it and it is affordable and fast. Semi-serve yourself.

I love the sandwiches here - especially on the seven grain bread. Yum! I've only tried one of the soups, but it was delicious. The cookies are very tasty. Service is on the slow side.

I like the Grateful Bread. Their sandwiches are great, the soups are above average, their bagels are fresh and yummy, and their challahs and other breads are never too hard.

The service, though, for the most part, simply sucks. Some of their employees honestly look pissed when you try to order something (as in "You want MEEE to help you?!?" I often aim for the nice guy (tall dreads goatee) as to avoid angering any of the women that work there by trying to order.

Overall, it's good food with crap service.

The bagels are chewy, soft, and always fresh. They are truly perfect, and they're the main reason I go to Grateful Bread.

The pies are pretty good here, especially the cherry, and the pumpkin spice muffins are wonderful.

However, the cream cheese spreads taste like glue. In fact, everything I've tried here with cream cheese (chocolate cheesecake muffin, cheesecake, key lime tart) tastes off.

The bread is just okay--nothing special here. If you want to get fresh-baked bread in the Wedgewood neighborhood, you might want to try the Sunflower Bakery and Cafe on 65th.

The pastry is hit and miss, and so is the espresso--sometimes it's good, and sometimes it tastes burnt and extra bitter. Service here is not particularly friendly.
