About
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.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I just had a late lunch at Pain Quotidien Monument. It was a brutally hot day and I was exhausted. The staff were friendly and helpful. There found me a table outdoors in the shade, and offered to help me move to the (much cooler) indoors if it was too hot outside. I ate a multi-grain salad that was tasty and nutritious. The coffee was superb. I enjoyed my visit and will return.

We went here for coffee because we'd enjoyed a visit to another branch the previous day. This time we just had a hot drink. Once 12.5% service charge had been added, I paid almost £4.50 for my cappuccino. This is even more expensive than east Cheshire. Unfortunately it was bland with little evidence of actual coffee. I won't be so keen to visit again.

The place is very good. Its central bear the monument tube station. It's convenient because it's close to many offices. The service is good and the food too. They serve a good variety of vegetarian and vegan plates. It's a good choice. 👍

Went in with high hopes however it was awful. The staff gave no eye contact to avoid attending to your table. Whilst we were in several other tables had to get up and ask for attention. We were sitting for 5 mins before even being given the menus to browse and then waited a good while for the food. Whilst we were waiting on our food there was food sitting on the pass for a good 8 minutes because it almost seemed like the inept staff didn’t want to deal with it. Table behind us had to ask for menus and when their food arrived had to again ask for cutlery. Basic things were forgotten like cutlery, butter, and salt. The food was bland too. Coffee was tepid, fruit juice way overpriced, porridge watery, and croque croissant (supposed to be warm) was cold. Gutted I wasted the money eating here and was tempted to save others who arrived and tell them not to bother. This place is woeful.

Tap water never arrived, apple juice so small you wanted to cry at paying £4 for it, flat white coffee that was just tepid milk….and the cakes? They never arrived. Waitress politely apologised for lack of cake.

Great food, friendly staff served in a lovely setting. We enjoyed a really tasty butternut squash, onion and goats cheese frittata along with super fresh scrambled eggs with avocado. Washed down by really good coffee. The start were great, the ambiance good and the bill whilst a little pricey, was well worth it. Highly recommend a visit.

Disgusting and dirty. Toilet floor is wet of pee and toilet seat laying on the floor. Waiters clothes seems to haven’t been washed for weeks The food, a focaccia was really good. The hot Chocolate was not chocolate but cocoa.

Went here for lunch today and ordered 2 vegan onion soups. Both tasted like they had been burnt - awful taste. Complained and we were given another soup that wasn’t on the menu. Very difficult to get served and the waiter was pretty rude to be honest. Didn’t care if he knocked either as he walked past where we were sat. Took over an hour to order and eat 2 bowls of soup, making me late for a meeting. Didn’t realise service charge had been added until later, real cheek considering the awful service and food. NEVER AGAIN

We ordered green tea for two. This is usually priced around £3 at the most. I mean it's green tea leaves boiled in a bag. It came out undrinkable pipping hot and cost us £7.30! I am more annoyed with the price than the fact it was pipping hot. I know prices have gone up but charging this much to customers for a green tea is outrageous. It's safe to say I will spread the word and won't be coming here again!

We have visited before for breakfast and always enjoyed the location, food and service. My first choice wasn’t available and I felt a bit rushed to order a replacement. I chose pancakes with banana, strawberry, Chantilly cream and compote, it was a little too sweet for me, however if you have a sweet tooth this would be perfect. My husband had scrambled eggs with avocado, it was served with bacon in error which meant this turned into a rather large breakfast. They have a fabulous take away section, the focaccia looked amazing. Nice food, generous portions and lovely staff. A great start to a busy day being a tourist.

I popped in for a takeaway coffee on the south bank for me and my husband, and without asking the manager offered to fill up my kids water bottles and made them a baby chino on the house!! Outstanding, thank you!

Food average and our food served 20 mins apart from one another, so we couldn’t enjoy breakfast together. Overall, don’t think we’ll return.

No soap in toilets. No toilet seat. Staff disinterested but at least the coffee is good. The only saving grace! I would not return.

City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
