An unexpected detour

In the midst of scouring for a bathing suit this afternoon, we stumbled upon Le Pain Quotidien, a coffee/eatery/brunchery on 14th and Walnut. Originally in the process of going to Bonte, we passed by the the blueberry muffins in the window and immediately changed our plan of action. So a detour meant for coffee turned into a sit-down break into a mid-afternoon lunch for me a second brunch for my companions. Who can say no to that? Although a little on the pricey side, Le Pain offers freshly baked goods, desserts and savory dishes all made with organic ingredients. 

A shot of probably the best cappuccino I've had in Philadelphia. (and a shot of another camera tehee).
Fresh baked bread, organic (and vegan) ingredients, pastries and some good looking blueberry muffins.
Prosciutto and Mozzarella di Bufala with sundried tomatoes and basil pesto.
Atlantic smoked salmon with chopped dill, scallions and avocado. 

Toasted paris ham and gruyere crossaint with organic mesclun and mustard trio. I was particularly excited about the mustard selection.

Ricotta with mission figs, black pepper and organic accacia honey. I loved the sweetness of this tartin and am now inspired to make a dessert with ricotta.

 One last collage of Coffee at Nook after lunch at Doma yesterday. Chocolate eclairs, masala chai tea and a lot of lounging.
