This bakery is nice and offers brunch and lunch menus as well as tasty treats. But they didn't really have a lot of offerings that other bakeries may have. And I found it very pricey.More

I stopped in Le Pain Quotidien for a quick snack while exploring Old Town. I had a macaroon and a cookie. Both were really good. They serve the usual coffee blends like Starbucks, fresh baked breads and sandwiches.More

Nice place- you have many choices and custom options- pretty much something for everyone. Certainly not your everyday breakfast fare- really blows that standard fare thing away. Creative and executed quite well.More

Description
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.
