Bread & Cie Restaurant Review: Firmly established as San Diego's preeminent bread source, Hillcrest's Bread & Cie continues to exceed its reputation. Owners Charles Kaufman and Chris Jurca and their staff hand-form the crusty peasant-style loaves that are served in numerous local restaurants and markets. Made daily, the bread honors European artisan traditions. We like to pop in while shopping or before a movie to grab a roast beef with horseradish cream on sourdough or a roasted eggplant with red peppers on kalamata olive bread. The lunchbox is a local favorite; it consists of any sandwich packed with bread chips and lemon cake. Soups are made from scratch and change daily. Also, try the freshly baked scones, éclairs, fancy cupcakes and brownies --- and don’t miss the blackberry cheesecake tarte. Beer, wine and specialty coffee are also available.
