Chicken Tarragon Sandwich

If you are from Riverside or visiting, Simple Simons is just a local community staple. Among others offerings, for me, this is my favorite sandwich ever. I get it with sourdough and a side of fruit. It's always good every time. I've been a patron of Simple Simons for decades. Their soups, baked goods - especially cookies like the chocolate chip or the molasses spice cookie, omg, always so delicious!

Cookie, Peanut Butter

This is the best peanut butter cookie you will ever have! I do not know how it is possible, but it is firm yet melts in your mouth once you chew it??? It is a must if you love peanut butter and go grab food!

This is the best sourdough bread ever. I love making sandwiches with it 😋 Most of the time I just eat it with butter. Always fresh.

Roast Beef Sandwich

Such an exceptionally good sandwich, I am still thinking about it days later. This is really a good quality roast beef. And I got it on the croissant which was so flaky and fresh. I like the pasta salad on the side with extra of the pesto sauce on it. And then I topped it off with a chocolate nut bomb which is like a chocolate brownie but better. Simple Simon's is special because the order is handled very carefully and when I get home the food still tastes as good as it would inside the restaurant, which is a rare experience

Croissant Club

Simple Simon's is by far one of the best sandwich shops! I believe they make all their bread there so it's always fresh. Their pastries are great too! Mmmmm bomb!

Gina's Vegetarian

This was probably one of the best vegetarian sandwiches I have ever had! It is pretty hard to find a good veggie sandwich that gets you full, but Simple Simon's had me covered! It was super filling and I was able to save some for later too!

Vegetarian Sandwich

I've been going to this restaurant for many years for both breakfast and lunch. I Always enjoy how fresh and delicious the food is. It's hard to visit without having something sweet from their many offerings. My favorite is the nut bomb. So yummy!

Croissant Club

I've been coming to Simple Simon's for years, and more than one dish has stolen my heart. However, the Croissant Club is my absolute favorite. Between the buttery croissant itself and fresh vegetables and meat, this sandwich is always a winner. Not to mention it pairs perfectly with a side of pasta salad! The Croissant Club is always my #1 recommendation to friends I bring to try Simple Simon's for the first time, and it has yet to disappoint!

Cookie, Christmas

Christmas cookies are a pocket of goodness. Anytime in the year you can have a bite of Christmas delight. The yummy goodness of raisins, walnuts and chewy in a cookie. Perfect as a morning treat with coffee or after your meal for dessert.

Turkey Sandwich

I'm soooo happy you opened back up. I was craving the turkey sandwich during the closure. I kept checking back and came as soon as you opened and have been back a few times to make up for it. I drive in from Lake Elsinore just for Simple Simon's. You can't go wrong with the turkey, chicken tarragon, either of the vegetarian sandwiches, or the grilled cheese! The potato salad is incredible! Stilll waiting for the Gazpacho to come back. The sourdough is the best, so fresh, and my favorite by far.

Vegetarian Sandwich

Gina's Vegitarian will always be my favorite sandwich to order from Simples. The crunch of the homemade bread, holding together the layers of fresh veggies, the melty goodness of the cheese, and the savory sweetness of the the pesto makes this sandwich one of the go-to Riverside classics sandwich and sandwich spots.

Roast Beef Sandwich

The best roast beef sandwich only second to my own! Very favorable! I had the pasta salad as a side and they both complimented each other!

Grilled Pastrami and Swiss

As always, the pastrami sandwich was amazing. Bread was toasted perfectly, the pastrami and Swiss were warm. One of my favorite sandwiches you guys serve. And the fresh veggies were great as well. Your ranch is one of the best out there.

Grilled Pastrami and Swiss

My husband and I love Simple Simons. I stop in at least once a week for sourdough bread. It's the best. When Simple Simons reopened, we had to decide what to eat first. We ordered the double meat grilled pastrami. It was so good and we are ordering it again. The real decision Is in choosing a desert. My husband loves the cookies, especially the peanut butter, which is like a shortbread cookie. I love the bear claws, the nut bomb, the pecan bar and everything else! Its all good! My husband is a breakfast guy, I'm not. But if he offers Simple Simon breakfast, i won't turn him down. He loves the homemade sausage, I love the perfectly cooked thick bacon. The eggs are perfect. And of course the toasted sourdough is never bad. Plus you get the yummy raspberry jam. Please open for breakfast soon. And did I mention the fresh squeezed orange juice? Yum yum.

Cookie, Molasses Spice

Oh Simple Simon's Molasses Cookie! I so miss the ABSOLUTE best Molasses cookie ever made. I lived in Riverside and this was my go to cookie, moved to Ohio in 1999, no more cookie! Made a trip to Riverside in 2010 and there had been a fire there and they were closed! I wish I could get them shipped!
