“We bake fresh and we’re a 24-hours-a-day location,” says Keith Miller, an operations manager. “We’re a café, bakery and restaurant.” (Click the "VCU Medical" link on Au Bon Pain's website to see a menu.)
Au Bon Pain opened at the medical center on June 29, the eighth location in Virginia and first in the Richmond area. Accompanying this, a production facility opened at the same time not far from the hospital.
The French-inspired “boulangerie” features café-style foods and produces an assortment of fresh goods that can provide grab-and-go meals for hospital staff and visitors.
The café has an extensive menu that varies from location to location. “We’re excited to be a part of the VCU and MCV hospital,” says Miller. “We’ve been a welcomed addition by everyone who has been here to see us.”
