Au Bon Pain (Update)

Au Bon Pain Experience

Brenda Cordova

When we go out to grab a bite to eat in any place particular we always have some expectations on the atmosphere, quality of the food, and service. Everyone is busy doing their own thing and we don’t have much time to stop and socialize; having a good Bakery/Café always seems like a good idea to grab a cup of coffee or freshly made bread. You can find a variation of yogurts, drinks, sandwiches, soups at Au Bon Pain located at One Metrotech LLC 70 Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn, NY.  College can be very stressful so if you’re in need of a coffee you can walk about 3 blocks and take it back to campus, if you have enough time in your hands you can sit in the eating area with some friends or alone is fine as well. Its close by train stations if you’re in a rush to go, as well its open bright and early starting at 6am.

Menus are very crucial in a restaurant; it’s basically the head of everything because without one the customers won’t know on what to order. I assure you every restaurant main goal is to please their customers with all their needs. Au Bon Pain presents that with their different variations on their food. They have about 10 different sections you can chose from depending on how you’re feeling. You can choose fresh bread from the bakery that is on the left hand side when you enter. It’s made for particular for that day, it includes:  croissants (you can chose to go savory or sweet), Danish, cupcakes (red velvet), scones, muffins (blueberry, corn) , cookies (chocolate chip, mint, peanut butter). If you’re in the mood for some sandwiches of your choice you can step to the back where their friendly employees will explain to you their options, or take a look at the menu. Their several types of sandwiches of which you can pick from, (Breakfast cold or hot sandwiches) for breakfast it can include eggs with bacon, sausage, ham on plain bagel wheat. Cold sandwiches include varieties from grilled chicken, Swiss & cheese, tuna salad, chipotle turkey. Hot sandwiches; include new port turkey, turkey cubano, and Tuscan grilled cheese. Everyone needs a nice refreshment after a snack, Au Bon Pain has all of drinks from hot coffee, teas, and ice coffee, frozen beverages such as smoothies (mango, strawberry, and cappuccino). With a great meals and side drinks you can’t go wrong with these choices.

Au Bon Pain is a very interesting site, on all the sites I passed through the color of the walls were all repetitive. Orange with a bit of yellow is what they represent in the places I’ve seen, well at least here in the city and Brooklyn. In the Metrotech area you can order for on the go or enjoy your coffee while waiting for your train, or if you need a booster to wake up in class. Half of the section is divided where people can eat with friends and family, they have several chairs and tables some facing the food area, and the other side is towards the window viewing towards the people on the street. The colors make everything else pop out, the machines are metal steel, and tables are a brownish color. Although during rush hour time the lines can get a bit long I believe it’s worth the wait.

Customer service is the key to any place, whether it’s a food area or a retail area, you want your customers to keep coming back and to feel comfortable when entering through those doors. While asking for your sandwich they ask for your choice, or when grabbing a cup of soup they ask if you need any help. The cashiers are friendly as well and don’t give you a “bad attitude”. Their price is leveled out, a lot of people think it’s a bit too much, but don’t badger when buying somewhere else for example like star bucks in where prices go high. Nutrition is very important to many people, they want to make sure what they eat and how much calories, protein it contains, au bon pain gives you the list of it which makes their products worthwhile.

We all have our choice on what food to munch on, food can connect to us in many ways, its a very crucial item in ones life. Food can bring people from all around the world together. In the article. “Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon and Other Late-Night Hosts Respond to the Paris Attack.” Mr. Colbert felt for what had happened in Paris but many of us didn’t know how to actually give them a helping hand. He suggested that if we wanted to feel for Paris and keep them close to our hearts we should enjoy a bread from Paris. “Eat a croissant at Au Bon Pain”.
