I am assistant manager of Brookside Deli and Market at the Oaks in Bakersfield. I am sorry you had a bad experience with the Smith's Bakery at our deli, I do however need to clarify that the Smith's Bakery has nothing to do with the Deli and market and only rent space in our store. We strive to ensure our customers have a great experience at Brookside, and our goal is to correct any mishaps that occur. If you have any problems regarding our store specifically we will be happy to address them. Thank you, Deborah Westfall (assistant manager - Brookside @ the Oaks)
The food is great, but the hours are annoying. It is such a convenient location for me, but I wish it were open later so I could actually get there. I'm not sure why they close at 3pm, since their other location is open later, but I can't ever seem to get there before the deli is shut down. Even if they would extend their hours until 4 or 5, I'd love it.
The freshest ever! The bread is to die for! Quick and just soooo good.
