Helen Hunt at Le Pain Quotidien

Helen Hunt at Le Pain Quotidien

I don't think Helen Hunt is a vegan, but at least she eats organic food! I saw her today at Le Pain Quotidien in Brentwood. Hopefully she enjoys the vegan soups as much as I do!

What do you get to eat there? http://www.lepainquotidien.com/

I've seen it listed in several veg friendly lists. Hummus sandwich?

Wow, there's a Pasadena location. If you can convince me that something on their menu is vegan & worthwhile then I'll have to drop by on my next trip to that area. :D I spotted a couple of tofu dishes.

I found this via our brethren at SuperVegan.com in NYC

Notes:

This Belgian chain features a large communal table, but has smaller individual tables as well. Counter service is for take-out only. You'll find soy milk for your coffee, fresh baked breads, vegan blueberry muffins, a selection of "homemade" jams, organic salads, and a several veggie sandwich options. The soup of the day is always vegan.

Although the menu knows what vegan means, the staff may need a reminder to not spread butter on your sandwich bread!

That's pretty much all the info I need to make it worth checking out. Vegan Soup / Bread / Blueberry muffin / supposedly 3 salad dressings that are vegan, too from another post I saw

Vegan muffins are a rare find while dining out. Hm, was hoping there'd be a little more hype about dinner options since that's when I'm usually in the area of any of the locations.

That's about the extent of what was vegan at Le Pain. Its a decent muffin if you happen to be by one. Better than nothing!
