Scott McVean is the man behind Pain du Monde. His love of baking is depicted through his flaky croissants, crusty breads and sweet pastries. Most of the ingredients come from locally sourced farms and everything is made from scratch. McVean believes that using high quality, fresh ingredients will make the difference in taste and flavor.
Pain du Monde offers both breakfast and lunch with a modern twist. For example, Scott's Benedict utilizes a Parmesan croissant as the base rather than an English muffin for the traditional benedict. With multiple locations in Orange County, these creations can now be tasted among breakfast and food seekers alike.
|ROSEMARY POTATOES ($4.95): The rosemary potatoes was a dish that consisted of mushrooms, brussel sprouts and onions. The dish was well seasoned. Potatoes were crisp on the outside.|
Overall, Pain du Monde is a great place to gather friends for a simple meal. The restaurant delivers a comfortable atmosphere where diners queue in line first, order, and seat yourself. The variation in pastries is what lured me into Pain du Monde in the first place. The Fashion Island location is quite small with an outdoor patio if you decide to bring your dogs over to join you for breakfast. Pain du Monde is comprehensively an ideal, casual breakfast spot for the hungry.
