I used to love all aspects of the Bountiful Bread. It was simple when going out with a group of friends as you just order what you want, find a table or couch and make yourself comfy until they call your name. Now they are much more efficient- your name gets called quicker, which is good because there is no... More

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' ability to get everywhere) given our high volume of daily guests.

I know it's a bakery (has "bread" in the name), but....this is my wife's and my go-to salad place in Albany. Their salads are large, fresh, and delicious. You might pay up to $13 for the salad, but they are almost always worth it. Salads usually served with a generous Asiago roll (occasionally just bread slices if they are out).... 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.

I love the salads and sandwiches at Bountiful Bread. They make everything to order - any will customize their selections to your personal preferences. I love the bakery too - the cookies and pastries are delicious. My son's favorite item is the spinach bread, and the soups are wonderful, as well. They also carry Oscar's Smokehouse products, which are hard... More

would like to see dairy and gluten free items. Even one gluten and dairy free baked good would be nice. Thanks for having soy milk. :) Omelet was fantastic

Dear Cindy F: Thanks for your review of Bountiful Bread. We have modified our offerings to better cater to a range of dietary needs. We have GF and Vegan options in the pastry case; we typically run a GF or Vegan soup daily. We will probably never sell GF bread until the product meets our quality specs, and right now,... More

I was in the area recently and needed a quick, light lunch so I stopped in for their special. The most interesting fact of about Bountiful Bread is the diverse menu. The place is popular for their salad and sandwiches, but most of the time one would be more satisfied with their daily specials. The food is always enjoyable, though... More

I was looking for a quick lunch in Albany on a recent business trip. I wanted a good roast turkey sandwich, but NOT deli meat. An article suggested this location.

We have enjoyed lunch at Bountiful Bread many times. It offers causal dining--you order, seat yourself, and then pick up your order. All the breads are baked there, and everything is made to order. We had salads this time and they were very fresh--and very large--we should have shared. We've enjoyed sandwiches other times. Their daily specials are always good,... More

Great food. Great atmosphere. Eat in or to go. Doesn't matter. Freshest ingredients in the area. Mixture of different flavors is the best around. Still waiting on a gluten free bread for my wife but we have been eating here for a long time and have been very satisfied.
