Woodside Bakery and Cafe Exterior

Woodside Bakery & Cafe is a combination Bakery and cafe in upscale Woodside, right next door to Buck’s. The bakery has been here since the 1980’s. Our last visit was in October 2011.

Woodside Bakery and Cafe Menu

Picks:
Spinach-Mushroom Soup ($7 Bowl) was solid albeit a bit on the rich side.

Roasted Lamb Panini with grilled red onions, roasted peppers, rosemary aïoli  ($12) was a nice grilled sandwich but could have used more of the lamb. Big side salad.

OK:

Woodside Bakery and Cafe Margherita Pizza

Pizza Margherita ($12) with vine ripe tomato, fresh mozzarella, basil, extra virgin olive oil (tomato sauce optional) was pretty average with little flavor to it. Cheese was pretty forgettable.

Woodside Bakery and Cafe Trout

Almond Crusted Rainbow Trout ($15) stir fried Asian vermicelli salad with orange ponzu sauce looked like they chopped half for another person’s dish. It was decent but crusted heavily.

Pans:

Woodside Bakery and Cafe Chop Chop Salad

Chop Chop Salad ($12) romaine, artichoke hearts, olives, gorgonzola, smoked bacon, red onion, hard cooked egg was a miss mash of ingredients anyone could toss together. Dressing was creamy like a ranch with no flavor.

Woodside Bakery and Cafe Split Pea Soup

Split Pea soup ($5) was soup of the day and very thick and heavily pea flavored.

Woodside Bakery & Cafe had terrible service with us forced to hail waiters to order, get refills, get the bill, etc. Timing was off, they did not bring the salad with the soup. The food was pretty average, so we would stick to the bakery. On another occasion service was slightly better, but the wait, long. Try Buck’s next door or stellar Village Pub. Reasonable selection of wines by the glass from $7, bottles from $28.
