|Good, local coffee|
Entrée items are tasty as well.

Second time around, I opted for the Eggs Benedict, which the menu description made clear was the bakery’s own take on this breakfast classic. Instead of English muffin, the eggs were served on top of house-baked Swiss peasant bread. In addition, chopped green onions and tomatoes were sprinkled on top of the Hollandaise, making the presentation more colorful.
The dining room tends to be quite loud. On my first visit I was seated near a large and very vocal party, which no doubt added to the noise level. However, the place was considerably emptier on my second visit but was still pretty noisy. Wild Wheat is probably not the place to go if you’re looking for a quiet little place for breakfast.
Service was quite good on both visits. The wait staff backs each other up, so your coffee cup might be refilled or your order brought to you by someone other than your server; a good thing that usually means slightly quicker service.
Not that Wild Wheat Bakery is a fast-food joint by any means. Linger if you like, but they won’t make you late if you’re on your way to the rest of your day. With many menu items yet to be sampled, I’ll definitely be back. Maybe I’ll see you there!
RECOMMENDATION: Worth a visit.
