What's In It for You?
At Au Bon Pain, we believe eating well is very important. What you eat should be nutritious AND delicious…which is why we strive to provide the right balance for you. Whether you want healthful dishes, refreshing drinks, nutrition packed snacks, complete meals, or from time to time, an indulgent treat, you can be sure your choice is flavorful and of the highest quality. To ensure smart, healthful, nutritious and innovative menu offerings and ingredients, we have assembled an esteemed group of physicians, nutritionists and dieticians to serve as our Nutrition Advisory Board. (See Nutrition Advisory Board members below).
Making smart choices doesn’t have to be hard. You’ll find full nutrition profiles for every menu item and suggestions for high fiber, gluten-free and reduced sodium selections on our nutrition kiosks in cafes.
The nutritional information is based on Au Bon Pain’s standard recipes and individual items may differ depending on a number of variables including variations in size and portioning that are inevitable when items are made by hand. Other factors that may cause actual nutritional values to differ include variations in serving sizes, preparation techniques, ingredient substitutions and changes in supply sources. Because of this we can’t guarantee the nutrition content is precisely accurate. We base the values we publish on information provided to us by our suppliers and our own analysis using industry standard software, published resources and/or testing.
The nutrition information reflects the nutrition content of company operated cafes in the U.S. In some instances franchised cafes offer items that may vary either in nutritional content or allergen presence. Please speak to your local Au Bon Pain General Manger if you have any questions about the items served in the café you are visiting. Some items may not be available in all Au Bon Pain cafés.
