Woodside Bakery and Cafe was a wonderful place to go and get Bakery needs and a wonderful Cafe in the Woodside Community. Jan and Mark Sweyer live in the town of Woodside and were only on a month to month lease for the past 15 plus years. That is not how to run a business. George and Christine Roberts should have put them on a yearly lease. Now the town of Woodside is going to have 2 back to back restaurants. Who is going to be the next to leave for the shops in the mall are all on Month to month leases. George and Christine Roberts have bad business reputation. I support Mark and Jan for they have done nothing but contribute to the town of Woodside, and I thank them Kindly for having the Best Bakery and Cafe Woodside could of ever had!
We have frequented Woodside Bakery and Cafe weekly for the past 6 years. Sorry to see it close due to a cruel lost of lease. Mark and Jan, good luck on your future endeavors.
This was my second time here, and the food was once again outstanding! Of note on this trip was the "from the garden" selection (even not being vegetarian, this was amazing!), and the risotto side dish.
A troubling bit of information that came up from a table-mate...they may be closing due to lease negotiations!! Say it isn't so, and that you can come to some kind of agreement that will keep the Woodside Bakery & Cafe open for all to enjoy! I would hate to lose such a community gem! Fingers crossed that the interested parties can come to an agreement, and soon!!
A pretty small but wonderful restaurant! The food was delicious and the suggested wine pairings worked out well.
Cozy, yes. And not exactly cheap. But totally worth it.
Great brunch place. Cinnamon raisin bread is very tasty!
I so hope that the WB finds a way to stay in its current location. It is always a reliable and tasty choice for a meal.
Food items are hit or miss. Sometimes I forget what not to order and leave unsatisfied. My food tonight was just OK. My wife's fish was excellent. We love the melted bree and flatbread with roasted garlic and chutney. Decent wine selection and friendly service keeps us coming back. You should always try to save room for dessert.
We had a last minute change in plans and used Open Table to reserve a table. We were worried as my son is in a wheelchair and we're weren't sure the cafe would be able to accommodate inside.. but they did! Service was great -- love the complimentary pop-overs!!! I would definitely come back.. food was as expected though my toast was a little burnt (would have preferred it if it weren't) but I ate around the burnt pieces. Nice way to spend a Sunday with my family
Woodside must have holes in their head. Why would they mess with an institution that has all kinds of folks looking to get their coffee and snack before biking off into wonderland.
The food and people are incredible. They have been there for 10 years and everyone loves the hangout.
My panini filling was cold, and service was mediocre. The hostesses looked like they had a chip on their shoulder and did not smile at all. The ones cleaning off our tables were the nicest ones. Their house bread and pizza were good though.
The burger was excellent. The place was packed but the hostess was sweet since we did have to wait 1/2 hour for our table. She kept giving us updates Once seated all was perfect. I heard the cafe was closing in January. That would be a shame. Hope the story I heard isn't true.
THe cookies aren't as good....the abeiance is NOISY....and food has gone downhill....and they are losing their lease:-(
What a fun experience! Sitting at the bar is like being in the audience of a cooking show. And then getting to taste the results, which were fabulous!
We both had fish, swordfish the daily special, and the salmon from the menu. Both cooked perfectly. Accompaniments super.
Definitely will come again, if they succeed in negotiating their lease. Rumor has it the landlord is trying to force them out. 😢
We are so very sad to see Woodside Bakery go. We have a lot of memories dining at Woodside Bakery with family & friends. We will surely miss their food and the staff.
I've been there before and it's very warm and some what old fassion. The food is consistant and friendly although it does get a little noise there. I will continue to go there. The resoto scampi is one of our favorites. The pizza is also good
Arrived on time for reservation but they had no tables available except for outside (very cold day), and not all of their outdoor heaters even were working! Then we waited too long for initial contact from waiter, who attention to us was spotty and distracted throughout the experience. The food was only mediocre - the pizza I ordered was billed as mushroom-pesto-truffle but it seemed like mushroom-cheese, didn't detect any truffle or pesto on it whatsoever. Baked cannelloni sauce was pretty good but the filling was boring and bland. Bread was good (as I would expect of a bakery) and I would go back to buy bread there, but never again for a meal.
My wife and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE WOODSIDE BAKERY and have been loyal customers for several years - Roberts Market owns the space and is evicting them in January -
That does not make me want to be a ROBERTS Market customer - I hope this can be worked out ❗️❗️
some things here are really good. (Penne Slyvia) and others I order again. and then wonder why...I had the pot roast which was really just a chunk of meat. not that fall off the bone type..in a beef broth. not gravy..or thicker as what I think of as pot roast. and undercooked vegetables. So I really just had a chunk of meat. They really need to redo this spot and expand or something. The tables inside are awful with people always rushing past and cold air from the patio door. The counter to us is the only spot to eat at. If full we leave .Patio is fine in the summer,until the wasps come. Lunch is good ..and most dinner things.. and we do frequent it often. It just has its little quirks.
Located in Woodside just off 280. Nice patio. Solid menu and good service. Also, a 1st class bakery.
The food can be inconsistant here. Asked for one salmon dish well done, came rare, asked for another rare, came medium cooked through, crab cakes were good.
A bit noisy sitting close to the bar.
