We drive from Orange County just for this sandwich! I prefer it with cheddar (not a Swiss fan...). I won't eat tuna salad anywhere else but here. The pasta salad is the best.
The BLAATT never disappoints. I've been eating at simple Simon's Since I was a child and Every year on my birthday I go back and eat a BLAATT with their famous potato salad and pasta salad. It is a must have on sourdough bread.
This is the best gazpacho I have ever had. It is great al carte, as a side, with or without avocado. When my sister visits from Washington State, Simple Simon's is our first stop in Riverside and we both enjoy this soup. If you have never tried it, give it a shot. So yummy!
Breakfast bacon, eggs, potatoes and fresh squeezed grapefruit juice, and hot coffee loved it all with raspberry jam for my toast completely filling and all hot great portions then Christmas cookies to go for dessert. I love this place can't get enough and my family from Washington always requests a meal here when they visit!!!
I come to town once a month and this is my favorite dish to eat every single time. It's delicious it's tasty , savory. I do recommend this dish at least to try once. Enjoy!!
I absolutely love the tuna melts from here perfect with the sourdough although doesn't taste bad on olive bread. Pasta salad is also good.
This delicious homemade sausage makes breakfast at Simple Simon's a unique treat. Alongside fresh bread, perfect eggs and potatoes or any omelette- you'll love this sausage! If you miss breakfast- you can't go wrong with the sandwiches and desserts...love this place!
Another awesome sandwich.
I bit into the grilled pastrami and swiss like there was no tomorrow, devouring all of its fatty pepperiness in one mouthful, and I felt the rush of spice pass from the sandwich into my mouth, the seasonings coating my mouth and hanging around in there, the thready, elastic strands of fat overtaking my taste buds. It was weird and primal and breathtakingly good, and I can't wait to eat it again. -Andrew
It's hard to find good vegetarian food !! This sandwich is great !!
Popped into Simple Simon's to grab a soda/ tea. The very friendly man handed me a 16oz seemingly plastic cup, which I soon learned was a environmentally-friendly corn-based biodegradable plastic! I proceeded to the self-serve Coca-Cola soda tower, a short journey from the register. I pushed the lever to release 4 nuggets of frozen water - perfectly colorless, and orderless - into my container. Simon had many options for beverages: Coca-cola, Pibb, lemonade, Diet Coke, Sprite, and Root Beer. Bonus!!; There is also freshly brewed ice tea! In summation, this is a wonderful spot to purchase a soda/ tea. I am told they also have bottled drinks and fresh squeezed juice that a may have to try next time!
I come here as often as I would to the grocery store, the food and hospitality is always spot on. Employees are always looking cool and there customer service is always spot on. The pasta salad is always a go to, if I could I would have y'all cater my wedding. 10/10 would always eat there again.
This dish was so delicious and creative. The open faced sandwich was new for me but everything about it was so good!
Sourdough French toast is a real treat! Way bigger than I expected!
My all time favorite sandwich!
This chilli is soooo good. I've tried to recreate this and i always fail. I'm sure they use magic and fairy's dust to make this seemingly ordinary chili taste heavenly! The velvety texture of the beans combined with the coolness of the avocados, the spice of the onion and the mouthwatering crunch of their famous croutons gets me every time!! Do yourself a favor and try the chili. You can thank me later.
The bread was warm and fluffy. Tuna melts with Swiss cheese is the best lunch dish, especially with a side of your choice or veggies or fruit ! Thank you simple simons <3
Sooooo good. I'm not a vegetarian but I get this all the time. It is a perfect sandwich with all the crunchy veggies. Sometimes I add a scoop of tuna for added protein.
I love the black bean chili, all the toppings make a perfect meal with a side of cornbread. Definitely one of my go to favorites.
This black bean chili is amazing! The consistency, the right amount of spice and the dollop of sour cream is superb! It's definitely a must have all year round.
Favorite vegetarian sandwich! The veggies are fresh and the bread, cheese and sides are high quality. Simple Simons has never disappointed- favorite eatery in Riverside for sure.
Best sandwich shop around.
Love it. Everything is so fresh and the bread is the best part. Would go everyday if i could afford it.
The best sandwich in riverside! Obsessed with this croissant club. Always fresh
The BEST VEGAN SANDWICH IN THE I.E.!! And believe me, I've tried a lot. This one is so delicious and so super fresh, it's my go to!!!!
I have been coming to Simple Simon almost weekly for around the last twenty years and I have never, not one single time ever not had a perfectly executed meal - top shelf. I have tried every one of their menu items, many times but my favorites are the Roasted Lamb (I also like it on their Kalamata Olive Loaf) and their BLAAT, which I also like on Croissant. Their desserts obviously have premium ingredients and you can taste the real butter, high-end chocolate, and other great flavorings. Their peanut butter cookies are silky and nutty, the Chocolate Nut Bombs are addictive, Christmas Cookies are warmly satisfying and their cakes make any occasion a real event.
Simply wonderful. I love this sandwich with lots of Dijon
I am trying to eat healthier and this was absolutely to die for along with the potato salad. I am going to have to come back again ASAP because just talking about this sandwich makes my mouth water.
Yummy, Yummy. Packed full of flavor and chicken. Not dried up chicken but tasty tender white meat chunks. The sour dough bread was so fresh and delicious. A wonderful compliment to the salad. I love coming here. Tried the Chocolate Pecan Bar, split is since I was on a diet. Oh it was mouth watering scrumptious. The bottom crumb crust was so decadent , I made sure to eat each crumb that fell. Thanks Simple Simon's for always make food worth eating.
I absolutely love the vegan options here. I am a vegetarian, but I try to eat vegan as often as possible. I get the vegan on either sourdough or eye breads. Both types of breads are baked here fresh and have so much home cooked flavor. I can't stand mushrooms though, but luckily you can substitute for something else. I go with the eggplant. It is cooked perfectly where it doesn't have a weird texture and it is easy to eat in the sandwich. Every vegetable in the sandwich is fresh and the portions are huge! I usually eat half and take the other half to go. It gives me enough room for one of their tasty desserts! Try any of them and you will be in love. The worst part of moving out of California is how much I miss Simple Simon's, and my family.
The sandwich of my dreams.
I'm new to the area, so I'm trying to discover new places to eat. The food and service here was great! I'm excited to come back and try some of the other menu items. I would definitely recommend this place to others.
I made the switch to vegan a few months ago for several reasons, the details of which are not interesting. Point is, although I am very happy with my decission, it is often challenging to find vegan options that knock your socks off. I feel some places offer a vegan option out of a sense of obligation and it tastes like it, sadly I've become used to it. Today I went to Simple Simon's, I ordered the vegan sandwich (first time going there and not ordering the Cold Focaccia). It was amazing. Firstly, you cannot beat the in house made olive bread. Best. Bread. In. The. I. E.. And all of the ingredients were crafted together to perfection. Cooked mushrooms, red onions, pecans, avocado, arugula, DELICIOUS. Thank you Simple Simon's for making a vegan option I will dream about, crave and order over and over and over again.
My Favorite Sandwich
Wonder sandwich Great service
The winter omelet is amazing! I love the sweet onions and apples combined with the cheese and nuts, makes for a perfect combination of flavors. I have fallen in love with this dish.
I have eaten here for years, best spot in Riverside. Now my kids always want to go here as well. Great staff, great food and an awesome feel to the place. French toast with Chicken Apple Ssusage is my favorite
