Just in time for another somewhat sunny weekend, I’ve got an excellent lunch spot for you.
They serve up the biggest, flakiest pain au chocolats, tarts of all varieties, easily two-person spanakopita and so much more.
Meaning to try La Boulangerie for quite some time, we just happened to be walking down 4th street on a mission (get it?) to find something to eat when Cole suggested it.
We walked in, glanced at the menu of crepes, croissants, omelettes, and sandwiches – before ordering up and grabbing a bistro table outside.
Seated with warm coffee and an Orangina, we were transported back to Europe as we relaxed on the patio.
In no time, a large bowl of French Onion soup made its way to our table, coated in melted cheese.
Now I’m not much of a soup person (in fact, I hate it), but it seemed to warm Cole right up. Big pieces of onion, warm broth, and strings and strings of gooey cheese. I’ll admit it looked delicious.
Just when I was almost considering a sip of soup, out came our baguettes.
Ham, cheese, and tomato on a fresh, chewy white baguette for me.
Roasted chicken and red peppers for him.
These sandwiches were absolutely filling and it was a struggle to eat both halves! Somehow of course, we managed. But sadly, neither of us had room for dessert – which was truly sad since a chocolate tart had caught my eye.
It was a splendid little spot for lunch, close to the park, lots of shops, and seated in just enough sun to stay warm. Fellow lunch mates chatted, Sophie got her fill of attention, and we had a bit of a preview to our upcoming trip.
Make sure you check it out! Next time, I think I’ll order the chocolate crepe..
