Chose to opt out of hotel breakfast and go to LePain on Sunday morning. Great food and excellent choice of pastry. Enjoyed its ambiance and quietness

We came to have a late breakfast on Saturday and it was a good choice. The portions a generous. Their eggs with avocado (nice and soft) are really tasty it kept me full till late afternoon. The scrambled eggs with salmon were really good too. In general the food is a good quality. I also highly recommend the detox juice.... More

Do you like good food? Do you like cute one off cafes and dining on the pavement on a gorgeous street in a chic European city? Then Le Pain is for you! Especially if you like organic food. Lovely menu of breakfast/ brunch options, freshly squeezed orange juice, delicious hot chocolate. Le Pain is a small place with tables outside,... More

A (small) red bell pepper soup and a fresh mint tea as a lunch was nice. The soup was excellent and the bread really nice. The service was slow as the place was packed. I am not impressed by the bio label omnipresent on the menu; it seems to be brain washing the customer while reading it. Modify your menucard,... More

We bought a few pastries to takeaway for breakfast and loved them! Most impressively all 4 came to just about €5, much less than expected! The large communal table looked lovely to sit around when eating in, and I even came back later in the day to get a lemon tart, which was exceptional.

I have tried Le Pain Quatidien in other countries, where I really enjoyed everything they had and the friendliness of the staff. Still, this is not the case with this one. The staff was most of the time absent, although there were not too many clients when we visited, whatever we asked they brought with delay and made you feel... More

Ate here twice and both times had the hot oatmeal with speculoos and bananas and it was amazing both times! My mother had the soft boiled egg and fresh baked bread and loved it. The coffee is delicious and the bread is amazing.

We are great fans of le Pain Quotidien and have been to several of their bakery/restaurants around the world. When we were in Brussels, we wanted to go to the very first Pain Quotidien (founded in 1990), just for fun. Once again, excellent fare and great attention. We really enjoyed it!

We visited here as our hotel is just across the street and we were in search of a good breakfast! It really didn't disappoint! We both had le pain petit dejeuner - a hot drink, glass of fresh orange juice, croissant (or pain au chocolat) , organic wheat bread and a baguette. Lots of jams and spreads were on offer... More
