Le Pain Quotidien [CT]

After visiting the Philip Johnson Glass House in New Canaan today we had lunch at LPQ at 81 Elm just up from the Visitor Center.

I had eaten in a LPQ in London and this was the same thing: French farmhouse feel with a long communal table down the middle and a pastry shop up front. It does mean 'our daily bread.'

We had a Paris Ham and Cheese Croissant [$6.95] from the breakfast menu and my special of Roasted Corn Caesar Salad [$10.95] with two types of bread. Both were very good. For dessert, a Mixed Berry Tart [$6.50] and my Belgian Waffle [$4.95] with berries and acacia honey on the side. Both desserts made up for the rather dietetic lunch selections.

Good strong coffe was served, French farmhouse style, in individual pots and bowls [$3.10]

bloginfo: Several reviews have mentioned the noise level. The place was packed and the noise level WAS quite high. The service was slow as our waitperson was new or distracted or maybe just slow.
blognote: Coffee in bowls is cute but it doesn't stay hot for long.
