I have been to many Le Pain Quotidien in London and this is surely the least favourite. Slow service and food not as good as expected. I dont think I would return at this store to eat.

Waited over 30 minutes for a sandwich and some scrambled eggs. The food was cold and overcooked. The staff weren't even slightly apologetic about keeping us waiting or the quality of the food. Needless to say, we had to send back one dish. To make matters worse, the staff were incredibly slow about bringing the bill and seemed to need... More

Do the best boiled eggs and everything is reasonably priced apart from the orange juice! For breakfast it's the money saving option in pretty, rustic surroundings with yummy spreads and jams for toast and organic food.

Went for brunch today, the service was awful. They forgot our food and coffee, when it came the cooked real fast was stone cold and my wife's boiled egg was cracked and half empty. My breakfast came back microwaved so hot but disgusting with ultra hard scrambled egg. We had to ask three times for the replacement boiled egg. No... More

Sign saying wait to be seated. So we waited. After a few mins and no one giving eye contact I saw a female looking manager speaking to staff behind the cake counter (also avoided eye contact) and asked if I could sit down. Yes. That's it. No apology. The place was not busy or even half full. Rude. Lovely girl... More

I used to come there for breakfast and lunch with my chihuahua. Then they banned dogs and I could only sit with my dog at the table at the entrance, which I was very comfortable with. Then the other day, I came for lunch with a friend of mine and my chihuahua. We entered and one young British guy with... More

Arrived at 10:50hrs, waited 15 minutes for a menu to be delivered. The staff did not seem to care. Waited another 6 minutes before walking out. The server at the till look absolutely surprised when we said "you are too slow". Although not a "fast food chain", the staff at Le Pain Quotidien, Kings Road Chelsea, should spend sometime at...

Located in the busy borough of Chelsea this little coffee stop is everything you would expect from this type of London establishment; lots of people, not much space but somehow still inviting enough to draw in the passing trade. It has a real feel of a French 1900 cafe bar which make a nice change to the now common America... More

This place has gone downhill over the years. I ordered a boiled egg with sautéed tomatoes. It arrived with slices of fresh tomatoes on one plate and egg with pieces of left over crumbs of bread on another. I had to ask for a bigger plate and the wait for milk for my coffee was unreasonable. My coffee had gone... More

Staying in Chelsea

Neighbourhood Profile
Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops, eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at its best and luxury retail therapy that's largely unrivalled, this area cannot be missed. But if this showy street starts to overwhelm or a moment of price tag shock sends you reeling, a quick detour down pretty much any of many King's Road veins will reveal a quieter side of Chelsea. Here the stately Royal Hospital hosts its world-famous flower show, and the Thames rolls along at a lazy pace, with leafy Battersea Park and its Peace Pagoda beckoning from across the river.
