We happened upon this great little bakery while waiting for a family member having a test in the Gonda Building at Mayo. It's connected to the clinic via walkway and is amidst some other restaurant options. Like most, we were visiting Mayo in a stressful situation, so finding this hidden gem was a perfect way to passify our emotions during... More

Quiche was not good, pasta salad was bland, servings were child-sized, and price was high. Would not return.

Quiche, sandwiches and soups were perfect for lunch in between appointments at the clinic. The line moved quickly and wheelchair was easily accommodated.

Their bread was awesome, and their hummus and cookies will keep us coming back! The cake is a bit oily, though, just as a heads up. Still, overall, definitely worth a visit!

When I choose to eat fresh,hot food that's not deemed,"Fast Food", Daube's is my #1 choice. They have an awesome quiche that will leave you feeling full & satisfied.

I've had their daily quiche specials several times... always delicious ..any of their bakery items are top notch but all spendy.

I had clinic appointments and did not care to eat in the Mayo cafeteria so we walked the subway down to Daube's. We both had sandwiches and soup and I had a carrot cake cup cake. This is a great place in the subway to have lunch or a snack. The food is GREAT and the service is also GREAT!!

Best Pastry in town, they must use REAL butter. Fresh each day from the main bakery. Good service. Pickup and enjoy with a good cup of coffee.

I had lasagna and it was excellent and so are the sandwiches and the desserts are to die for. Service is great, only problem is they could use more seating because they are so busy! It is cafeteria/deli style it is nice and fast but feels like you are eating much healthier than a fast food restaurant.

For the life of me, I cannot understand what the appeal of Daube's is. The donuts are generally overpriced and stale, the soups are ok but whenever I've tried them I've found them salty. The service is more often than not brash. Each time that I've tried (now 3 or 4 times) I've been disappointed despite the hype surrounding it.
