Rating: Solid trendy bakery food
Euro Pane is a highly rated little bakery/restaurant in Pasadena. They serve simple breakfast/lunch fare in the modern New York style.
The interior is stylish, although the seating is limited and leans toward the backless.
Even better, the pastry cabinet. You can see the popular macarons over on the right. I didn’t try them this visit.
“Pain aux Chocolate (Chocolate croissant).”
“Beet salad.” This was a nice take on this ubiquitous dish.
“Prosciutto, brie cheese, arugula, flatbread.” The bread itself (barely visible below) was chewy and sweet with an almost cornbread like vibe. The overall salad-like effect of the thing was very tasty.
“French toast.” There is real Creme Chantilly back there too.
“Chocolate tart.” Very dense and classic little pastry.
Overall, Euro Pane did a nice job. People rave about the egg salad sandwich here too. It looked good, as did the salmon flatbread. If you are out East and in the mood for some upmarket bakery-lunch fare, the place is solid.
