Great for a snack or light brunch. Attentive service and a bustling atmosphere made it an attractive place to choose. It's an inexpensive place to enjoy meeting friends or just sitting down with your laptop. There are lovely healthy options on the menu & a great range of drinks. Definitely recommend it for a lovely place to stop for a... More

It's the first time I came here for lunch, previously breakfast. The options are varied, although the specials were already sold out (only two of the 6 on the menu were available that day anyways but that's not clearly explained in the menu). The thing I'm missing is some easy and reasonably priced menus or find choices for small children,... More

I remember that it was a bit expensive, but tasty and quick service I like that they are showing a bit a French look for the pastry, that makes you have good impression of the original French cousin

As a neighbor of "Le Pain" I often enjoy brunches at Sundays there. The food and drinks are nice, the quality is good.I also like the location outside, a lovely terrace. The service quality is average, sometimes bad ( A few of them a really nice though. ) Most of the guys in the service are doing their job without... More

I like this place. The food is not the best (le Pain Quotidien in Paris or Brussels have far better standards) but the place exudes a pleasant atmosphere. The light is nice, the decor is warm, and I always spend a nice moment having a quick bite here. Also, the bread is good and it is one of the rare... More

I like Le Pain Quotidien because of it's nice ambiente but recently they have added some more tables but forgot to up their game on staff. It makes the place a crowded and last time I really got annoyed with the waiting time to be served. Really, if I, as a glutenfree eater, come to a bread based business, the... More

This Pain Quotidien is conveniently nestled in next to the Dolderbahn, a Funicular railway that leads up to the Dolder Hotel. Everything is absolutely as it should be for a Pain Quotidien, but it's variable - depending on who is managing and serving on that particular day. Perfectly decent. Most of the time.

I know this chain from Paris and I like their food. The service was not super friendly but during my visits quiet fast. Many people with young kids- not really the right place if you want to have a quiet Sunday brunch

Zurich is somewhat lacking good breakfast places and therefore, sometimes, there is the necessity to drop by in a place like Pain Cotidien which is a chain. Coffee is unfortunately bad and prices are inflated but their baguette is pretty good. A good way to get fresh bread on a Sunday.

Based on Sunday options in this neighborhood they have a monopoly. The food was good and we presented. Lower than most zurich prices - still expensive by real life standards. Its not quick but its good. We did order something we never got. But werent charged so no biggie
