The EuroPan Experience

I thought I’d jot down a few of my impressions of the new EuroPan cafe that opened at the corner of Austin and 70th Road. Here is the website link if you aren’t familiar with this chain of New York City-based cafes: http://www.europanbakerycafe.com

After work one night (I had been working rather late), I beelined to the EuroPan during the first week it opened. In my mind, I pictured a big salad bar waiting for me, like they have in Pax and other city deli chains (or what I like to call ‘Glorified Korean Delis’).

Well, I arrived at our EuroPan and was surprised to find no salad bar. Instead, you have to go to the counter and order from a fixed menu on the wall. They have several salads available. I ordered what I think was called the Aztec Salad or something like that (this was a few weeks ago) to go. Yes, the service was very slow and disorganized so it took me a while to get the food. But when I got it home, I was very pleasantly surprised that the salad was great. It was very fresh, and delicious. I was not expecting it given my prejudicious against these deli/cafe chains.

I have since gotten bagels there, and these are also excellent. Very fresh and tasty. Kinda reminds me of H&H Bagels in fluffiness and sweetness. Excellent.

Also, walking by the place a few times I really like what they did with the location – it is very pleasing to the eye to see the cafe open to the air and people dining inside during these warm summer months.

Has any one else been to EuroPan? I’m interested in hearing what other people think.
