The Dish:

Extra bonus points for food that is delicious AND good for you. You'll find this winning combo reflected in the granola bowl at La Boulange Bakery and Café. The first layer consists of crunchy, homemade granola with oats, pecans, and walnuts. Next is a cool, creamy layer of Greek-style yogurt topped with seasonal fruits—which often include blueberries, strawberries, honey dew, cantaloupe, and pineapple. It's topped off with a drizzle of sweet golden honey. Now dig your spoon into the delightful layers of goodness and mix it all together for a breakfast that will give you a bounty of energy. You can substitute milk for the yogurt if you so wish.

Key Ingredients: Homemade granola, Greek-style yogurt or milk, fresh fruit, honey

The Place:

La Boulange currently has nine locations in San Francisco, but don't be surprised if that number creeps up higher in the near future. They are on a roll. This company prides itself on fresh, homemade items; to many, they have become the friendly and familiar local neighborhood bakery. Serving an affordable but great-tasting breakfast and lunch daily, La Boulange has become a daily stop for friends meeting for a casual bite or pretty much anyone stopping for their daily caffeinated beverage and grab-and-go sandwich. A touch of France in San Francisco.

Other Menu Musts:

Open face sandwiches, seasonal specials, and seasonal treats.

Gift Ideas:

Invited to a dinner party? Keep La Boulange in mind for an edible dessert or gift. La Boulange's signature tarts and seasonal macarons always put a smile on the recipient's face. You can even have treats gift wrapped and adorned with a dainty blue and yellow ribbon upon request.
