I just love City Limits Bakery and Cafe! The food is always good, and the service is friendly and efficient. City Limits reminds me of a family-owned version of Panera Bread, which I also love! My favorite sandwich is the City Chicken and the coffee and pastries are also wonderful. Of course, the soup is fabulous!
After being long time customers of City Limits for years, they lost our business due to VERY poor customer service. When we asked the owners to correct the problem, ( that is common among all small family owned coffee and sandwich shops) they refused to correct the situation.
Guess they don't care much for customers, much less customers that they see on a regular basis. We are also small business owners and make a point to patron local business, as it is good for our community. City limits will take your money ( their food is over priced) and if you have complaints, they will likely not care.
delightful – I don't often get to visit City Limits, but I always enjoy time spent there. The atmosphere is quiet and relaxed, the staff is super friendly and quick, and, oh, the soup! The soup is always fantastic. I usually get the 1/2 sandwich and a soup combo, and have never been disappointed. My favorite is the mushroom brie soup! The pastries are pretty good too! Not the best in town, but always good. The oreo bars are not to be missed.
Delicious food and quaint ambience – My husband and I frequent the City Limits Cafe on a regular basis. It is hands down my husbands favorite place to stop and relax with a delicious cup of coffee with endless refills and smooth flavors to choose from. We both enjoy the salads, soups, and sandwiches. The Spring salad with pear slices and walnuts is a wonderful blend of fresh ingredients with a perfectly balanced raspberry vinargarette. One of my favorite soups is the corn chowder. The desserts are a major temptation with their sumptuous flavors. One of the best muffins is the cranberry/walnut.....yum.
Beware of ordering Thanksgiving food at City LImits Eats a la carte! – My husband and I live in Bellevue and wanted to feed 8 people for Thanksgiving. We saw an ad in the City Limits window and for 150 dollars you could get a 12-14 pound turkey, gravy, stuffing, 2 vegetables, rolls and 2 desserts. It says this package will feed 8-10 people.
Thanks goodness!! tonight we opened it and looked at it since the little pan the turkey came in felt so light. The top says turkey 10 pounds and it is all cut up and looks very sawed up and pitiful to put on a Thanksgiving table. tI might feed 6 people but no more and the vegetables might fee 4 people. Rolls look very cheap and it says yeast rolls but I am so humiliated to serve this food for Thanksgiving. I am going to cook much food tonight and not feel like I have to apologize to my guests.
Never again will we get a so called Thanksgiving feast from City Limits. They have cheated us and assuming they did this to everyone. I hope others complain and since I had to spend another 70 dollars to get a rounded out meal that didn't look cheap, I paid a lot for Thanksgiving. The bread pudding is only big enough to feed 3 grown average size people.
I already went to Honey Baked Hams and bought a ham so guests will feel they have enough to eat.
I thought it best to write to tell everyone and not just the management. They already know what they sold me. This came from Eats a la carte, which City Limits owns and next to them , near the new Publix in Bellevue.
Think about your personal value before going here – The food here all comes from Sysco-everything! Nothing is fresh made. Need an ingredient list, too bad, they're not willing to look in to it. None of the soup is homemade, it either comes in a bag or is frozen and they add water. Ask them ff rhey home make their bread or soup and they will lie to your face and say they do. From what I hear they are horrible to their employees, and they must walk on eggshells becasue they never know if they will get happy owners or crazed owners. The manager that was running both locations left because of the way the owners treat people. If you care about treating people the way you want to be treated- DO NOT EAT HERE!!!
Good food, clean, friendly staff, yummy soups, fresh salads, kid friendly – My four year old daughter and I eat her often. I usually get the City Max, which is very reasonable and perfectly portioned. She gets a grilled cheese kid's meal, which sure beats chicken and french fries any day.
The salads are fresh, crunchy, and made while you wait. They're not sitting in some fridge waiting to be yanked out. If you stand by the counter, you can watch them be put together. I'm especially fond of their raspberry vinaigrette. It's tangy and sweet.
I am addicted to their mushroom brie soup. I buy it by the quart. I am starting an unofficial campaign to get them to offer it more than just on Fridays. If you love it as much as I do, please request it, too! I sent mine in writing.
Great place! – The freshest salads, breads, everything is GREAT! A great place to take friends, or get a "to-go" order...made fresh when you order!
Great Food – they have awesome food but their cookies are EXPENSIVE! $2 a cookie even for bulk orders! puffy muffin makes the yummiest cookies and only charge $.85.
i definitely recommend this restaurant for breakfast, lunch, or dinner but not for catering.
My favorite eating, meeting place. Always great food & service – I have enjoyed City Limits great food and service since it opened in our neighborhood. The great New York style baked bagles, toasted, with creamed cheese are the only way to start the day, unless it's a stressful day then the cinnamon bun is a must. (Of course with their great coffee) For lunch I admit that I love the chicken salad on multi-grain. The bread has a grainy texture and the big grilled pieces of chicken are mixed with a tastey mayo blend. I can only eat half of the sandwich which is large, so I often get the City Max with 1/2 sandwich and 1/2 salad. I especially like their greek or portabella salad w/ my sandwich, but the Grilled Chicken Santa Fe salad with celantro dressing is my favorite for an entree. The black bean & corn salsa on it is the best. The many coffee drinks and desserts are too varied to review as are the breads that sell by the loaf. It's a great neighborhood bakery and cafe where I run into many of my neighbors a couple of times a week. I rate it high because I have always received great quality food and service.
