Mr. Baguette Serving Banh Mi and Pho To Downtown

By
Mr. Baguette at The Bonaventure Galleria

Downtown's Spice Table no longer serves its wonderful banh mi and Chinatown's Mỹ Dung could offer a little more in the atmosphere (and meat) department. That's why we were thrilled to stumble upon Mr. Baguette, a time-tested, quick-fix favorite of the SGV's, in the food court of The Bonaventure Galleria this weekend. Mr. Baguette, which bakes its own bread and makes its own charcuterie, is currently serving a solid competitor in the field of Downtown's best banh mi, offering four styles (priced, astronomically in Rosemead terms, from $4.99 to $7.99) with fillings like Saigon bacon, meatloaf and egg, and garlic sausage. The restaurant, which is only open from 8:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M. on weekdays, also offers a daily pho special for $7.95, along with boba Thai tea and coffee.
