Ham Sandwich

I love Simple Simon's and have been eating their for years. Their sandwiches are amazing and fresh and the pasta salad is to die for. Amazing breakfast too. All around, never had a bad experience or bad food. If you are on the fence about eating here, don't be! Well worth it

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!

Chicken Tarragon Sandwich

This is one delicious sandwich the chicken breast is moist the Pesto and Black Olive Fresh Baked Bread served with my choice of the House homemade potato salad, which I'm normally very skeptical of ordering as it's usually out of some container with half done potatoes 🥔 but this is potato salad done right, I live in Barstow but will drive down the Cajon pass to eat something from this Delicious menu don't let me get started on them Baked Goods I keep a $20 bill in my wallet so once I reach that limit on the Baked Goods I know I need to stop Lol Really your staff is Awesome as well It's Always a pleasant experience

Homemade Granola

So good! I make it as a cereal with fruits or put some in my Greek yogurt to add some flavor.

Chicken Tarragon Sandwich

The most popular chicken salad sandwich I know. Everyone in Riverside loves it, for good reason. The generous portions at Simple Simon's mean you really taste the pecans and tarragon with the grilled chicken. Paired with their homemade bread, which is beyond compare, you have a very delicious and satisfying experience. Your choice of a great side included. Everything is delicious here, so choose a beautiful french style pastry to top it off. Prices are lunch sandwich normal, but other restaurants can't compare for the same reasonable price. Fantastic quality, atmosphere, and the nicest people to serve you.

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!

Turkey Sandwich

Not really sure how I can rave about a turkey sandwich but this place is great!!! I always order the full size telling myself I will eat it later but there is none for later because I can't stop eating it. The pasta salad is wonderful I don't care for red or green bell peppers but I gobble it all up. You cannot go wrong eating here it is always consistently delicious. Keep up the great work.

I loved being able to order online. It was easy and the estimated pick up time was perfect. My order was correct including the adjustment I made to my sandwich (a filling was correctly left off).

Tuna Melt w/ Swiss

I have been a customer of Simple Simons for 30 years. The food is delicious and the staff is welcoming and friendly. They bake the best bread in the city. Check out the sourdough-walnut. The nut-bomb cookies are to die for. The breakfasts are wonderful as well. They are a treasure of downtown.

Loaded Smokey

Loaded smokey with added grilled pastrami - for the purveyors of fine grilled cheese, it is my top choice of sandwiches in town. The Juxtaposed hearty slices of fresh bread grilled to perfection, and rugged complex cheese flavors have established this as the local standard of grilled cheese excellence. Add Hot pastrami for a complimenting symphony of flavors.
