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. Try the curried chicken salad on fig and anise bread for another bite. 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 available, too.
