Breakfast with a flounce

Open at 8am, this is a great spot for a healthy, hearty breakfast (omelettes, porridge and tartines). The five of us were the first in the door and our dancing waiter practised his winks, flounces and pouts on my daughters - and everyone else there! That is life in the Marais, and we were a quick... read more

We had soup, bread, salad and sandwiches and everything was delicious! Everyone who worked in the restaurant was pleasant and spoke a good amount of English for us to understand what we were ordering. Price was very reasonable for what we ordered. Authentic french food.

Excellent location for an excellent choice of tasty salads as well as some hot dishes, served with their bio bread by a smiling and professional either at the terrace or indoors for a reasonable price considering the size of the portions making it a must for the self conscious eater.

This was a cute and light place to stop for a bite to eat. I was quite surprised at how good the food was, since it's a health-nut-kind-of-place. I am not vegan, but ordered the vegan combination for 28 euros, and added a couple of eggs for my protein intake. I forgot that they do soft-boiled eggs, not hard-boiled, but... More

I loved the tartines and the bread and jams were delicious. I even bought a jar of orange jam to take home. There was a large variety of baked goods and the cappuccino was perfect.

We ate at this patissiere / boulangerie a couple of evenings after having a relatively large lunch. The selection of lite fair and house wines still gave us the feel of being in Paris without the burden of a large or formal meal. Bread and pastries were excellent. Limited selection of entries gave us all we needed..

To be called a great pastry shop in France you really have to excel and these folks did! The pain de chocolat's were flaky and hot and they made a berry bowl of wonderfulness with crunchy stuff on top that was out of this world. With my non-existent French skills, I'll never know what it was called! That combined with... More

A place you would think about when planning to have a breakfast or lunch in Paris. The organic products are very tasty, with the marmalade and the fresh bread being the best. Also the omelette was very good.

Situated in the heart of Le Marais, this is a great spot for breakfast or brunch. Like the other Pain Quotidien restaurants, it's always a pleasure to eat here. We sat on the terrace outside, enjoying the beautiful weather. There is a large variety of breakfast choices to choose from. Prices are reasonable and service was very friendly and quick.
