Au Bon Pain Menu – At A Light & Breazy Note
When businessman Louis Kane thought of making fresh baked breads and croissants available to everyone in the city, it was because of his chance encounter with Boston’s historic Faneuil Hall marketplace, where he saw French bakery ovens showcased in shops. Enticed with the aroma of the fresh breads, Kane decided to open Au Bon Pain, and today the café has branches in Kuwait, Dubai, Thailand, South Korea, and Taiwan.
