Bountiful Bread is located in Stuyvesant Plaza which is a nice change from the mall atmosphere. Lots of parking available. Customers order and pay for their food then pick it up at the counter when it is done similar to other restaurants like Panera's. I didn't hear when they called by name so my lunch set on the counter till... More

Really nice salads, sandwiches and paninis all made to order. Friendly folks. Fresh ingredients (especially the bread baked on premises). You come in, choose what you want, order, find a table, your name gets called when the food is ready. We all know and mostly love places like this - what sets this one apart is the freshness of the... More

Stopped in here after doing some shopping in Stuyvesant Plaza. Even at 2:00 the place had a nice sized crowd. One of us had the Spicy Tuna Melt and the other had the Classic Club. Both sandwiches were excellent with plenty of meat on them and toasted perfectly. Each sandwich comes with a size of pasta salad and free refills... More

The food was great. The service was great. The prices were reasonable. What more can I say. Think upscale Panera.

Dear Fred B: Thanks for the great review. We agree completely. There is a huge difference between a real scratch bakery and a place that serves pre-bagged soup and par baked bread, and we're glad you noticed and appreciate the difference. Sincerely, Brian White, VP White Management More

Went for lunch yesterday and today. Both times were both very good. They have daily soups but their standard is the tomato pesto. Some of the best tomato soup you will ever have. Pair it with the grilled cheese and you have yourself a tasty lunch.

The Vermont Turkey Sandwich is incredible. It's maybe the best sandwich I ever had. When you visit Albany you really need to go to Bountiful Bread.

So I loved this place, LOVED it. I mean, anytime an out-of-town friend came to visit, I would drag them here, raving about the deliciousness they were about to experience. It's a bit pricy, but that's to be expected since everything is made from scratch, plus you get a (predetermined) side and a pickle. I wasn't crazy about the redesign,... More

Place is so much better after the redesign, open and modern. The best salads and soups in the area. Love the outdoor seating in the summer/fall. Food is always ready fast, unless its lunch time during the week becuase of the business offices. Otherwise, love it.
