I have been here numerous times with my wife. The ingredients are natural, fresh and high quality. This also means they cost a little more and they take longer to prepare the food. This is justified since this is not fast food. This is quality food. An excellent place to have a relaxed, intimate lunch. Also a good place to... More

Recently dropped by the Pain Purdu for a quick lunch. A quaint place for sure. We had the "special" of the day - roast beef on a baguette. The sandwich was average at best. Our table was very unstable and we felt quite crowded into a small space. All in all, an ok place for a quick bite at a... More

Having moved from the UK and being able to pick up fresh, warm croissants in your local supermarket for the equivalent of about 1CAD, I was slightly disappointed by the lack of freshness and over cooked croissant. We have been desperately searching top bakeries for excellent croissants. We tried the almond croissant, pain au chocolat and raisin croissant. Two of... More

I'm quite picky when it comes to croissants. They must be flaky and light - Pain Perdu's don't disappoint. When ever I have a craving for one I know I'll only be satisfied if I go there. It doesn't hurts that the decor is nice a cozy.

This little gem makes the most amazing croissants (we have recently been to Paris, and they as good as any we had there!) The service is friendly, and the atmosphere is delightful

The croissants and quiches are good, but I find they are excellent when i take them home and heat them up. However, this shop is for treats only as it is quite expensive, and to get croissants for a group/the family is costly

I LOVE Pain Perdu, and I love it because it is an amazing, an authentic French Cafe. Every little thing they have is good. The pastries are fresh and flaky, and the quiche is always very flavourful. They are really serious about the quality of their products and details about France. All the staff are French and even the radio... More
