Ordered a Cobb salad, no bacon, to go for lunch. $16 for a smallish salad of mostly lettuce, teeny tiny bits of tomato, a few thin strips of chicken, decent avocado, small portion of cheese not crumbled, and part of an egg. I was told...More

The food tastes very good but they give you small portions. The hot chocolate was very rich and authentic. The turkey club was very good. The chicken vegetable soup was really good. The bread is awesome!

We're a Belgian bakery and restaurant serving simple, wholesome and seasonal food. Le Pain Quotidien means "the daily bread" in French, and like our name suggests, we're bakers at heart. Although our handmade, organic bread is how we got our start, we serve a variety of healthy options like organic coffee, pastries, eggs, tartines, soups, salads and desserts. At Le Pain Quotidien, we believe that food should be simple, nourishing and delicious. That's why we source ingredients that are local or organic whenever possible. We also believe in the importance of eating a healthy, plant-based diet, so you'll find many vegetarian or vegan options on our menu.
