The concept is very Belgium, which consists of a large community table and baskets of bread. We actually ate at a few Le Pains while we were in Belgium and the locals gather around the community tables in the morning and read the morning paper and chat with one another. While we don't see so much of that happening here, its still one of the best places for a healthy breakfast in all of the world.
Lately we've been addicted to their porridges, oatmeal and the famous Riz au Lait.
All items on the menu that are vegan are denoted with a tiny picture of a carrot. (not in every country, though). The tartines are particular popular, too. There are numerous vegan baked goods as well, but we focus on the low fat goodness. The grains they use are the freshest I've ever had. The oats in the oatmeal burst with each bite. During the trip that produced these photos the people behind me were actually speaking French, I could have closed my eyes and been back in Europe!
The Riz Au Lait, is devine. Its rice, agave and soy milk. We also can't resist their mint lemonade. Be on the look out for special vegan porridges, as well!
