“Great!!!”
Reviewed 7 June 2013

Excellent place, great service, delicious food! It's a great time for a happy hour, for dinner with friends, to have a sandwich for lunch or to have a glass of wine in winter.

“Great fondue and pizza!”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

Unfortunately, we don't live in Illinois anymore, but whenever we are traveling through Champaign, we try to stop here for dinner. It is a little on the pricey side, but that is expected when you are dining at a fancier restaurant. We always get the plain (classic) fondue, which is served with bread, potatoes, and a few veggies for dipping. The fondue is delicious. We also LOVE their pizza. It is super thin and super crispy, absolutely wonderful! The staff is always pleasant and helpful. We look forward to eating here again.

“Almost a European Ambience”
Reviewed 18 February 2013

The Bread Company is right on the campus of the University of Illinois, and is well used by university folk as well as the local residents. It sells very good bread, and great lunch snacks, like pizzas, sandwiches, soups and salads, either to eat in or to take away.
It is also a very good cafe/restaurant. In the evenings, you can choose from the pizzas, but they also have a good selection of lovely appetizers, salads, and fish or meat dishes. Beer and wine selection is good too, and many students and/or faculty like to go there for "Happy Hour".
We go there fairly frequently and have been happy with the food and the service. The atmosphere is especially nice in the cooler months, when they have a fire in the fireplace. They also have a Valentine's Day special, which is when we were last there (just a few days ago). They offer a set-price menu for couples, which consists of a choice of salad, then a choice of fondue (comes with a raw vegetable plate) and a glass of wine. This year, the price for that was $42, which we thought was very reasonable. We actually had different salads and a bottle of wine, but many couples took advantage of the special offer.
For good food, in a relaxed, casual atmosphere, we think this is hard to beat.

“Try Their Sunday Brunch”
Reviewed 9 February 2013

My Sweetheart and I have especially enjoyed the Bread Company's Sunday brunch, which starts at 11 AM. Their coffee equipment was broken, but we could get what we wanted at the Espresso Royale next door. There is plenty of seating if you come early.

“Great soup, bread and fondue.”
Reviewed 7 January 2013

The daily soup and bread lunch special is great at the Bread Co. For about $3.50 its a great deal. The fondue makes for a great appetizer. My favorite is the Corn Chowder and Swiss Bread.
