We went in for dinner with two children who couldn't wait to eat down the street so we dropped in here. The menu is limited and wasn't very child friendly but we already had the kids in a booth so we ordered some sandwiches and drinks. The service was quick and pleasant. The sandwiches were decent, basic on good bread... More

Without question, Wheatfields makes the best bread; you would have to travel far and wide to find its equal. Pastries are delicious and lovely to look at although the offerings are limited and all are expensive. The restaurant sales counters and layout generally are a problem. One enters through one of two doors on the west side and immediately encounters--at... More

Another very cute bakery in downtown. Still searching for fantastic baked goods that are gluten free. But they did have a quite a bit of selection of regular baked goods. Some tasty delights for sure. The prices seem very reasonable.

Service is always pleasant and straight forward. The food is always fresh and has honest flavor (not "suburbanized.") Favorites are Biscuits and gravy (HALF ORDER is large-full order is to be shared,) cinnamon rolls-huge, and really everything on the menu. Baked goods are far superior to "chain" bakeries. Lawrence is very fortunate to have three local bakeries that are top-notch.... More

For breakfast, lunch, or the bakery, this is a great choice. Very reasonably priced and everything made from scratch. The bakery offers various breads and baked goods and I've to buy any of he baked goods that were not outstanding. Meals are light. A sandwich and/or soup are my normal choice for lunch but there is a good selection of... More

Nice place to have a cup of coffee, light meal, and some kind of baked good. Plus, you can buy the bread at grocery stores in the area

As far as bakeries go, Wheatfields is on par with Panera. But it does have a very local feel that sets it apart from chain bakeries. The breads are very good, and they have quite a variety of sandwich options. I really try to watch my carb intake, so I don't eat a lot of breads, but the few times... More

Breakfast is served quickly and is very good. The customers are considerate of each other and help you out. Bread is very good.

Seriously, everything on the menu is good. Some stars in particular are the salad, scones, soups, fried chicken (Wed. eves only--get there early!) and their biscuits & gravy. And their bread is incredible. Great place for any meal.

The bakery offers varieties of crusty European-style bread baked in a brick, wood-fired oven, matched by elegant desserts. The cafe has excellent sandwiches and salads with daily specials. Even though the service is fast--you submit your order at the counter--it is always packed lunchtime, so get their before noon for lunch. No special dinner menu, so there is always room... More
