We did end up going for a run after all! Just a short turkey trot hair-under-a-5K with the dogs to rev our appetites for lunch.
And rev we did!
Emily told us about Le Pain Quotidien and it’s epic bread basket and amazing salads and we were sold.
We made our way upstairs and to a cute table overlooking the bakery
In the French spirit, cappuccinos were ordered
And bread was served.
We ordered the exquisite bread basket that comes with an array of spreads and breads
Including several organic hazelnut butters!
Definitely not the time to tell the sever to take away the bread basket. [In fact, never do that!]
We all partook in one of the most delicious bread displays one could imagine, including orange and berry jam and chocolate and brunette hazelnut butters
The menu was impressive well beyond the bread, offering a wide selection of organic, vegan, and gourmet options. I was especially impressed with the salads!
I decided on the Aged Goat Cheese + Arugula Salad with Parmesan and Pinenuts
It was fabulous, and I cleaned my plate. The goat cheese rounds were…exquisite!
It also came with more bread! I didn’t attempt to eat it all, but I did have one last taste for dessert
My dates all had really great lunches too – so fresh and so green, yo
Off to get hitched!
