Saw their advertisement in local paper (buy one next one half off) so wife and I stopped in for lunch. Very cute place, seating on inside and outside, excellent sandwiches and quite a variety too. They are also a bakery which looked good with a large number of different breads and breakfast treats. They also will make the bread to... More

This was my favorite neighborhood place for sandwiches. Unfortunately, their retail location here in Del Mar is now closed. You can still buy their Sourdough bread at the Village Mill Bread bakery in the Del Mar Highlands shopping center, but none of their others.

Great local option for bakery and deli servings. Large sandwiches albeit a bit pricey. Moving to Escondido at end of March 2014.

Popped in here one lunchtime to pick up a sandwich after visiting a local office. Good sandwich but felt it was a little overpriced at $8 for what you get. Will come back though as the selection of breads looked interesting and I'd like to give those a try

As you enter this old school bakery you can feel that it's been around a long time-25+ years long. I grew up here and didn't even know about it until I visited last week. Decor is old school, and the smells are old school delicious, with classic french loaves neatly displayed and delicious pastries in the display case, though it... More

The bread is perfect and lots of choices. I love their sweet dill mustard with Turkey on a croissant. The baked goods are all excellent!!!

We haven't been to Del Mar in a few years, and are now planning a trip in the fall. I thought I would check out the restaurants in the area to make sure some of our favorites were still there. I was pleased to see this bakery was listed. It was always a regular stop on trips with my kids.... More
