We stopped in at Europane because I was in the mood for a coffee and some brunchy fare (despite it being past noon on a Monday: ah, vacation). Needless to say, their popularity meant that breakfast offerings had been consumed by the day's earlier risers, so Plan B—aka lunch—went into effect. How I love it when Plan B is awesome! Fresh bread and pastries are the name of the game here. A made-on-the-spot BLTA for Paul and a toasted portobello mushroom sandwich from the case for me. From the pastry case, we had a "deep dish" lemon bar with a fantastic buttery shortbread crust. I'm normally a middle-piece lemon bar person, but fortunately Paul was a little quicker on the draw when we were given the option of a middle or end piece. Paul voted end, and boy am I glad! Needless to say, I'm really looking forward to one of those early mornings when I can jumpstart my day with a Europane breakfast.
