The Bread Company on Goodwin in Urbana has a campus coffee shop atmosphere (mismatched chairs, tables a bit crowded in, but it is the one restaurant we go back to over and over for coffee meetings, a salad or sandwich lunch, and especially a home cooked dinner. The quality and preparation of the food (and the lovely Swiss bread!) put... More

You go to the counter and order for lunch. Dinner is a different experience. We had reservations for a group at 5:45. Our waitress was very nice... More

I ate dinner with a group, and a couple of us had dietary restrictions. The wait and kitchen staff were very helpful and accommodating. I ordered the Button Mushroom Pizza and was in gastronomic heaven with every bite - incredible crust, perfect amount of cheese and toppings for me, and wonderful flavor. Truly pizza with pizzazz!

The night I was there I couldn't eat the bread because it contained an ingredient (ham) that I don't eat. They offered a very promising lamb stew which turned out to be sort of average. Dessert is awful. There were two choices and I took the chocolate mousse which was grainy and tasted distinctly like coffee more than chocolate (I... More

Good spot for some local flavor. The sandwiches are tasty and service is pretty quick. You can tell this is a local hot spot for lunch.

The name doesn't do it justice. When you hear the name you think it's like a chain or just about bread. Not so. Incredible pasta but also had some great apps. Pizza looked fantastic. Ask for their signature pasta dish, pancetta. Great atmosphere-nice college/alternative feel. And excellent service. Will go back for sure.

No waiting! Had a reservation, ordered sangria (yum) and fondue. Nice place to catch up. Lively but not loud, and candles!

The board had three soups to choose from and 10 cold plus a number of hot sandwiches. Even us gluten free dairy free folks were able to find a good meal. Nice selection of salads. Everything from scratch
