Came here for a brunch sort of thing while visiting fashion island. Im not sure what was really going on that day but the wait for the food at a non peak time was really not cool. A half hour wait for eggs is a little silly. When it arrived it was pretty cold. I am pretty sure the kitchen... More

Pretty good coffee from here, and probably one of best found around fashion island. Pastrys are good also for a grab and go kind of a breaky or snack. As a coffee place should be I guess. Occasionally massive cues through the day so I think a few others would also agree.

Since the restaurant next door had a 45 minute wait, we tried this place and were pleasantly surprised. We had a very interesting salad and a turkey wrap. They were both fresh and the service was actually better than expected. I would definitely go back.

We always visit this tasty coffee shop for breakfast, lunch, pastry, paradise tea, and FABULOUS coffee drinks. It is incredible, has been around for years and years, and in my opinion, keeps getting better! I personally love the flavored coffees, the smiles at the counter, the amazing salads, eggs benedict, fresh squeezed orange juice, and almond twists. If you're lucky,... More

Terrible service. Rude staff, We ordered with a hungry baby in the group and they cannot get the order ready in 45 minutes. When we complained, they said there is nothing they can do. We ended up walking out of the place without a single apology from the staff. The waitresses were rude and did not care. I feel sorry... More

We went at Noon for lunch. Actually ordered at 11:58 a.m. Warning: there will be math. First, my lunch. I had the cheeseburger. Here's the description from the menu: "Freshly ground Angus chuck, cooked medium with American cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, onions and pickles." Fine with me. (I substituted Swiss cheese; no problem.) They left out: "We will drench your burger... More

Pain Du Monde has great coffee, amazing pastries, good breakfast and lunch options. If you're looking to treat yourself, indulge in a cinnamon twist or chocolate croissant or even a breakfast bowl with fresh fruit and sit back to people watch while you savor your breakfast

I love this place for a quick lunch from the office. Not only can you eat in there's also take out. The bakery is amazing especially the cookies. My personal lunch favorite is Bozeman Bacon with salad but other choices are excellent too. I've had business lunches and solo lunches here. The place is popular so plan accordingly during busy...

Stopped by here for dinner. The place was empty. You order food from a limited and ordinary menu at the counter and they drop it off at your table. Generally average food that is a bit pricey and not memorable, but not bad either.

Our lunch was super tasty and service was great too. We ordered salads with grilled chicken and they were great. I would come back.
