It is hard to walk by Au Bon Pain without pressing your face against the window while staring longingly at those chocolate chip cookies or the CroisBun (part flaky croissant, part buttery bun with lemon sweet cheese filling). As much as it is ok to treat ourselves once in a while fact is you can’t eat blueberry filled mini pies daily without experiencing a spare tire or bra over hang. But now you can walk into Au Bon Pain and experience their summer menu that features some lighter caloric choices. “To celebrate the summer and the relaxed state of mind, we’re delighted to offer our fresh summer menu lineup,” Maria Feicht, Au Bon Pain’s Chief Branding Officer. has said. “We invite our guests to try all the new additions… or their favorite staple menu item.”
