If you love all types of Vietnamese food, you’ll be hooked on Ba Le Bakery & Restaurant after your first bite. This authentic Vietnamese eatery on Washington Avenue specializes in both lunch and dinner foods and traditional Vietnamese baked goods, and it serves them in a colorful, modern locale that makes it very easy to get in and out when you’re in a hurry.
There are refrigerated cases filled with fresh juices and pre-made dishes that you can just grab and go, or you can order a customized sandwich if you have a bit of extra time to wait. Ba Le specializes in Vietnamese banh mi sandwiches, which are similar to hoagies and served on freshly baked baguettes. After your meal, you can also indulge in a Vietnamese dessert, like fried bananas or sweet bubble tea in your choice of flavors. The iced coffee also receives high marks here.
