In an area flooded by lunch choices, this nice little deli-cafe stands out. It has been my favorite for years. La Baguette has the freshest pre-made salads I've ever eaten, with a nice variety of vegetables, a hard-boiled egg and an addictive dressing. You can pick just veggies, or have the salad with shrimp, tuna fish or a few other ways. The sandwich board has plenty of choices as well, including a number of bread and roll options. My personal favorite is the Primavera, a delightful vegetable concoction (or the Provencal, with tuna added). Top it off with the house-made Moroccan ice tea. The people and service here are wonderful.
if you stay at the St. Gregory hotel walk 1/2 a block on M and go to La Baquette and get your breakfast here, the owner has warm croissants and coffee ready to go at 7am. I had a capp and a chocolate croissant. They play french music so if you close your eyes and ignore the sirens and the construction truck (joke) you think you are in paris.
