This is the first/oldest branch. Such a lovely place that opens early. We went everyday for breakfast when we visited Brussels on a short holiday. The atmosphere is calm with beautiful soft classical music. Breakfast is delicious and their pastries are on a different level....More

It took ages to get to the food and they missed plenty of things. They messed up the order and the waiter was very rude. It was very disappointed. I will not come back and I will not recommend it at all.

I love the small space of the very first Pain Quotidien. The people are friendly, and the food is always of quality. Great for vegetarians and vegans too. I come here regularly, since years now, for breakfast and lunch, sometimes daily. I work right around...More

I know, I know - it's a chain, etc. But this particular place is actually where it all began. The first of all those cafes. Food is great (mostly organic, with lots of veggie options), and it's a brilliant place to just sit by the...More
