    Best lunch deal in the hood is the 1/2 soup, 1/2 sandwich. Sit outside on a sunny day and watch charming Nolita stroll by. Also, don't be daunted by the small front room. TONS of space in the back.

    kale salad with grilled chicken is my favorite salad in all of new york. somehow this place remains under the radar in soho whilst being full of internationally chic personality. great atmosphere 👍

    Romantically lit and ideal for a special dining experience. You must have one of their delicious Panini’s. We recommend the Prosciutto di Parma Panini or the Handmade Mozzarella Panini.

    Lunch specials include 2 of the following: half soup, half sandwich or half salad. Cash only. All tables get free bread. Tomato soup is 💯.

    Consistent great food, very relaxed atmosphere, trendy patrons and always an abundance of foreigners. What else could you ask for... Love this place! Service, though, leaves something to be desired.

    Get the lunch special; soup and half sandwich. Try the tomato soup and prosciutto de Parma for a delicious combo!

    Brunch / Lunch move. Kale salad with chicken is a win. Also ordered the prosciutto di parma sandwich and tomato soup, great dishes. Can't wait to go back.

    The most amazing olive oil and lemon dressing for the shrimp salad. The seared salmon is also yummy. For weekday lunch, try it before 1pm. After that, it gets crowded.

    Smoked salmon really surprised me, simple but very good and satisfying. I'd expect the rest of the menu to be great 👍🏼

    Great food; The panna cotta with chocolate was a wonderful way to end the meal -- sweet yet light. Service was sometimes slow, but was always nice and knowledgable.

    Strawberry lemonade is equal parts sweet and sour, perfect. Soup and half sandwich, soup of the day can be interesting, give it a shot!

    The Panini is why you go here and the hit the spot every time. And a bowl of their soup and you will walk away happy.

    The tomato soup is to die for - super creamy and cheesy! Pair it with a half prosciutto sandwich during the lunch special.

    For just $11 at lunch, the tomato soup + half sandwich with spicy capocollo, scarmorza cheese, and red peppers makes a great combo.

    The Bitches say: D. Although we've loved Bread at dinnertime, our brunch dishes lacked flavor and imagination and the service was pretty much non-existent. Read more

    the Tomato soup is bananas. $11 lunch special half sammy and soup is one of the best sit down specials in the hood.

    If you want a quick lunch soup in SoHo, go to the Soup Kiosk. If you want to sit down, the signature Bread tomato soup is must-have.

    Food is usually pretty good but the pastries were below standards (which was a surprise seeing that is a french place.), also hot chocolate is watery, definitely a fan of lunch and dinner tho.

    Go here for lunch, but avoid all times for dinner. The ( bored) staff just can not be bothered and the food tasted like left over from lunch. If your choice is even being served ( visited on a sunday)

    Food was great and atmosphere was cool. However, the staff seemed tense, very self-involved and clique(y). It made us feel like outsiders instead of welcomed. I'd give it 2nd try.
