When the server is disinterested, abrupt and couldn't care less...it somewhat spoils the food. Shame

I got to have at least one pastry 3 times a week with my coffee. Their different soups are so good must try it.

Traveling and haven't been to an Au Bon Pain in a while, but it was still every bit as good as I remembered and even had a location right next to my hotel. So delicious!

Good for a quick breakfast. Clean with surprisingly good, ample seating. I needed something filling but healthy/bland-ish - ie nothing exotic/nothing that would turn my stomach for the important half-day test I was about to take.

The chocolate croissants looked good. You couldn't tell they were stale and tough until you bit into one. Disappointing. Probably less likely to happen on a busy day.

We were tired of walking and the picture of the Crab Salad looked wonderful. I got the crab on an actual salad. It was okay, but definitely not work the $12! A friend had another salad and she was not very impressed. Stop by for pasteries, but not salads.

We stopped in here for a quick snack and ended up with bowls of carrot ginger and tomato soup along with fresh bread. It's a nice, inexpensive bite to eat.

Stopped in for lunch. Food was fine and service was typical for counter type venues. Nice variety of soups and sandwiches/wraps.

Great fast food, with flavour and goodness. Staff were helpful and food was tasty. If you need the restrooms, collect the big key from the service counter.
