I have to say this is the best sandwhich I have ever had since I went vegetarian. The pesto is perfect. You don't even miss the meat because the veggies make up for it. It might be $12.50, but it is worth every dollar. Thank you Simple Simon's for making a sandwhich that reminds me of home.

Breakfast Sandwich

The breakfast sandwich with bacon eggs, cheese and tomatoes is the absolute best. Well, anything with these croissants is the best, so buttery and flaky on the outside, soft and airy on the inside. The best croissants around.

5 Star Sandwich! The BLAATT is literally the only sandwich I eat when I go there and I've been going since 2004! and I've been living in Long Beach since 2010 and come to Riverside just to eat the BLAATT! It's fabulously simple yet surprisingly delicious!

Chicken Tarragon Salad

Every single thing I've tried from here has been spot on. We love getting their potato salad. You can taste the quality of their ingredients and the love that goes into their food.

Tuna, Chicken Tarragon, or Curried Turkey Plate with Fresh Fruit and Vegetables

The Chicken Tarragon salad is good... great flavor! My go to order is the chicken tarragon salad plate with double veggies and no fruit. Simple Simon's veggies with dill dip is seriously delicious. I could eat that dip with a spoon. And they give you good veggies...carrots, cucumbers, red bell pepper and cauliflower. It's a good option if you're trying to not eat too many carbs. Even though their bread and goodies are hard to resist.

Grilled Marinated Chicken Breast

Best sandwich, hands down!! I'm always suggesting Simple Simon's for our office lunches simply so I could order two; one for lunch and one for dinner. A must try if you order from Simple Simon's!

Grilled Pastrami and Swiss

I came here with my friends recently looking for something new to try in Riverside. We looked up Simple Simon's and found a hidden gem in the heart of Downtown Riverside! I ordered the Grilled Pastrami and Swiss sandwich with fruit and loved every bite! Sourdough is already my favorite type of bread, but having fresh and toasted sourdough on top of grilled pastrami was an experience to say the least. 9/10 would eat again!

Vegetarian Black Bean Chili

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.

Roast Lamb

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.

Tuna Melt w/ Swiss

This is one of the best, if not the best tuna melts I've ever had! The tuna is great quality, tastes amazing, and never disappoints. It's melted to perfection! I always get it with the side veggies and dip. You can't get this amazing, fresh side anywhere else. It's always a must on every visit! And we can't forget about the delicious Christmas cookie!!!! Thank you for always being consistent Simple Simon's! <3

Tuna Melt w/ Swiss

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.

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!

Fresh Squeezed Juice, orange or grapefruit

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!!!

Grilled Pastrami and Swiss

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
