Au Bon Pain (Mass Ave/Dunster)
36. 10-11 Au Bon Pain (Mass Ave/Dunster Street). Summary: Doesn't disappoint.
What can I say? As much I'd like to diss ABP and say they're too big/spread too thin, they do an excellent job with lunch. This is the "big one" - there are three satellite ABPs around the square, but this is, I think, the original, and it's been there a really long time.
They introduce new foods, the service is always efficient, the place is always bustling, the prices are fair. I had a sandwich made to order - good food, a fair amount of it too - plus a small yoghurt and a bag of chips for $8. That's a lot of food for that amount of cash.
No complaints. It's not necessarily special, but it satisfies pretty much every time.
