Description: Our bread is made today exactly as it was in the beginning: with only organic stone-ground flour, salt, and water, kneaded and shaped by hand and baked in a hearth under the watchful eye of artisan bakers.We insist on the freshest and finest ingredients. If we can't find them, we make them ourselves.Our shelves are lined with the products we've created: the jams and chocolate spreads on the communal table, the granola in your parfait, the coffee that fills your bowl.

“The Best of Two Worlds”
Reviewed 9 August 2013

This belgian franchaice bases its menu on classic french (well, belgian as well as it turns out) baking traditions. Wonderful bread in all shades of grain, quality coffee, custom made marmalade and the true belgian touch for chocolate spreads. While having a morning to brunch like feel they also make delicious sandwiches - the latter kept in a somewhat more modern style than the look of the café shops might lead you to think. Their homemade lemonade and ice teas are a knock out.

Being a franchaice in spite of it's organic grassroot look Le Pain Quotidien (The Daily Bread) delivers a very decent meal in a very pleasant atmosphere - and the staff (at least the times we visited with a load full of kids) was very forthcoming and helpful.

“Good casual lunch.”
Reviewed 6 July 2013

This is a casual restaurant that reminded me slightly of Panera Bread in the U.S. It has a bakery feeling to it with good sandwiches and salad type of offerings. The service was a bit slow but we were on vacation so we relaxed.

“Very good coffee”
Reviewed 17 March 2013

The coffee was very good, breakfast yummy, but we thought the bread was a bit dry... so, next day we opted for croissants and they were quite good
