We love having breakfast or a lite lunch at La Pain Quotidien. The quality and freshness of their food is top notch. They have a wide variety of fresh pastries also. Very French🇫🇷

We ate breakfast here on a Sunday. There was a bakery downstairs and full service dining upstairs. We ate upstairs and the food was very good and felt pretty authentic. The decor made us feel like we were in Paris.

Loved Le Pain Quotidien. First time visiting; didn't realize there were so many of them in the city. Stopped for a midday coffee with friends and were sucked in by the many yummy pastries. The breads looked amazing, but we couldn't try them as we...More

Perfect spot on a sunny day! We got a coveted table on the patio. The attitude of those who were dragging their tails well after they'd finished eating went with the 'hood, and was not that of the serving staff. You can eat a little...More
