The Bread Workshop Café is considered one of the top ten greenest restaurants in the Bay Area. It offers many healthy specials this holiday season as well as a large selection of reasonably priced healthy dishes to eat in the café or take home to feed the family. The owner, William Brisco is dedicated to making his café the most sustainable business it can possibly be and their buyer Robert Mott says, “My hope and goal in all of this is that everyone connected to the Workshop, from cooks to customers, benefit from the knowledge I gain and the ingredients that I bring in to form the foundation and inspiration for everything we do.”
The Bread Workshop is now taking orders for their very special you-can’t-get-it-this-good-at home pies: pumpkin for $12.95, organic apple for $18.95 and organic wild blueberry $18.95. Just give them 24 hour notice and your pie will be ready to pick up to delight your dinner guests.
This warm and friendly café is more that a place to meet friends over a coffee, a tea or a delicious meal. It is also a bakery that offers a wide variety of breads and pastries and a place to take the family for a healthy meal in a clean, well lighted atmosphere free of smoke and excessive noise. You can order burgers or grilled meats, sandwiches, soups or salads either to eat there or to take home.
They offer dolphin friendly, low mercury tuna in their melts and sandwiches, grass fed beef and a wide variety of vegetarian combinations in addition to their regular sandwich, soup and salad fare for lunch. For dinner, they serve many unusual daily specials in addition to regulars like their organic vegetable platter served on a bed of brown rice or quinoa and a chicken pot pie that is the traditional mix of vegetables and chicken breast in a béchamel sauce baked in a flakey crust, served with a house salad.
The cost of these dishes is reasonable and the highest price I saw was $29.00 for a whole chicken meal that includes side salad, potatoes or quinoa and a fresh sliced baguette that will serve 4-6 people easily.
This is a friendly, neighborhood café, good for family dining and coffee dates, a treasure of fine eating in the heart of Berkeley. One visit will bring you back at every hour of the day to sit, chat, and sample delicious food you can afford, not to mention desserts to die for, all the more delectable because they are made with organic ingredients that are good for you.
