We visited Le Pain Quotiden Marylebone High Street. What an experience and worth trying anything on the menu. We were led by the recommendations from a waiter and we were not disappointed. Be prepared to wait for a table around lunch time.

I went to Le Pain Quotidien (in North Audley Street but there is no listing for it so forgive me Marylebone if you are better) and it was very ordinary, nearing on the unpleasant. Service is very slap dash and, though the staff are sweet, there is no obvious management control and it feels a bit as if you are in a kindergarten playground....no one seems very sure of what they are doing.

I asked for my scrambled egg to be lightly cooked (in fact,from experience, made quite a point of it) but no...yet again...a dry lumpy thing which is really scrambled omelette. The waiter asked if I was enjoying it...."no", I replied...."I will speak to the kitchen" he said....I don't know what this meant as there was no apology and the egg was not replaced. The scrambled egg also comes with a very oily, unpleasant salad (on the same plate so you can't escape it) which is a an extremely unfortunate pairing.

All right, I left most of this dry egg/oily salad concoction and asked for a croissant which seemed to be a safe alternative given all the gumph on the wall about their attitude to baking. It was hard and solid (was it frozen and hadn't been defrosted properly?) and where was the lovely, melting buttery taste. It was, in other words, horrible.

All in all, a bad experience (in an area where there are plenty of breakfast places) but I do give a point for their lovely, unctious and delicious version of peanut butter.
