First visit to Kneaders Bakery and Cafe

Anthony and I tried a new (to us) restaurant last night: Kneaders Bakery and Cafe at Broadway and Wilmot.

The interior is a little bit "homey" and a little bit contemporary. They have a fireplace in the dining room, shiny tile floors, and lots of wood. (I like lots of wood... ahem).

It's sandwiches, salads, soups, and baked goods like fancy bread and pastries. We were going to eat at Raising Cane's next door but that place was a zoo, so we ate at Kneaders since they were less busy.

I had a roast beef sandwich on Country White bread, Anthony had a croissant sandwich. The combos come with choices like chips and a pastry.

They also have cute little gifts for sale like a Cracker Barrel. But, unlike Cracker Barrel, there isn't a section of the building where the hustle is on to sell you something. It's more subtle at Kneaders.

It seems more like a lunch place than dinner joint unless you like a lunchmeat sandwich for dinner. But, I'd eat there again. The food was pretty good.
