Au Bon Pain and Hot & Crusty




Pr*tty
I have no idea how to properly pronounce this. Which pretty much means the baked goods must be delicious, in all the right (i.e. pretentiously french) ways. Also, the Futura Black lettering is lovely.

Sh*tty
There a very fews ways this name could be less appetizing.* Sadly, the multiple sizes of widely tracked Copperplate Gothic aren’t really helping matters.
