Dicey parking, good bread for sandwiches 9/7/2008

I have been to this location on Red River many times because it is close to the hospital. The appearance is nothing to write home about, and parking is very dicey regarding finding a spot - even at off times because several businesses and a bank are in that little center. They do offer several vegetarian options for sandwiches. The pimento cheese is generally tasty, but can vary from visit to visit regarding it being too dry. The music lately has been a bit on the strange side for where the restaurant is located. Staff in the bakery do not always seem clean, clothing is not professional or even necessarily clean or in reasonable repair. Hair nets are not in evidence at the food prep area for sandwiches. Lately when I have stopped in there has been a pleasant young lady there that is good with customers, though she messes up orders sometimes. For a sandwich it is pretty expensive. Tuna, pimento cheese, BLT, etc, for 8 bucks is a bit steep, though the sandwiches are large. They are served with tortilla chips. Recommend that you leave off the salsa as it is almost all cilantro and watery tomato and does not taste very great. The croissants, muffins, and other pastries are good. The bread that sits out for sale is exposed to flies and I would not get that, though one can order a wonderful loaf of bread and have it sliced. Fruit salad is fresh and good. Coffee is good and teas are nice. This restaurant years ago offered a spinach roll that was grand, though the people working there do not remember it. In general for a quick snack or sandwich its good. Certainly when I want a nice loaf of great bread for sandwiches I go there. This location would benefit from updating with regard to the floors. Would also recommend that if they want to compete as a deli, they up their selections some. Some professionalism on the part of the staff would be welcomed. Pros: good pastries, croissants, loaves of bread for sale Cons: parking, floor dingy, staff look dirty and exhibit apathy more

disgusting 8/28/2008

My friend and I went there to see this guy she knows who works there when it was slow. He said they mix up the salads of rude customers on the floor. While I was there he licked the back of a bunch of croissants. I called the Health Dept. but I don't think they investigated, and the same people work there. I think that place is gross, and I will never eat there again. more

An Austin Favorite 8/23/2008

This is the place to go for healthy, unprocessed food. Their turkey sandwich on country wheat bread is fabulous as is the chicken tortilla soup (served weekends). The coconut cupcakes are unbelievable! Gooey meringue frosting and rich cake with a smidge of custard filling. Definitely good. Pros: Good food Cons: A little noisy more

Falls Short Of Average Rating 11/30/2006

WalkingOne comes to expect that walking into a bakery your senses are overwhelmed with the sights and smells of fresh baked goods. Texas French Bread fails to meet this expectation. When I asked the man behind the counter if this bread was baked today he assured me it was. But upon surveying their poorly stocked racks it appeared otherwise. The bread appeared to have a dull lifeless appearance to it, meaning it was old or they use dough conditioners typical of a lower echelon ?bakery? like HEB. Of the three trips I made to their 2900 Rio Grande location I found at 10:00 am that their selection was extremely poor. Either they are much more popular than I feel they would be, or they just don?t produce enough. Pros: Old World Bakey Ambiance Cons: Poor quality of product more
