This is an international chain of good quality and good service bakery + cafés; bang in the middle of Paris not far from L'Opera. Notably the clientele were not just a few tourists but many local business workers looking smarter than the tourists, some even with ties on! Service was fast cakes and sandwiches various to your choice, with the... More

A bit OTT but I have been very disappointed with the bland sameness of Parisienne breakfasts on offer till found this wee gem close to Place Vendome. Organic muesli and bulgar wheet porridge and a very substantial frittata with bread from the premises. All a great start to a day's exploring the sights.

Good location, very nice interior, average food and bad service. Ordered something and got something else, and they didn't change it after I asked them to. They are also very slow. Andit is quite expensive for what you get. There are many better, cheaper cafes in Paris.

We never miss an opportunity to have a breakfast here when we are in Paris. Menu offers wide selection of fresh bio products. For pastry and bread lovers I recommend to choose the bread basket, butter, fresh juice and hot drink selection for the price of 10 EUR (all included). It comes with the home made marmelades and chocolate spreads.... More

I first ate here (rue des archives) when it opened over a decade ago - it was novel and fun - mosty staffed my women - then it became THE place to go and I never went back because I don't believe in queuing to eat. Went by today as had plans to eat with two friends. A table was... More

Definitely the place to take your breakfast with fresh squeezed orange juice, excellent bread, croissants and a soft boiled egg.

Pain quotidien and Table du Pain used to be great Belgian places where you could go for very casual food/coffee. Shared tables was almost unheard of before Pain Quotidien. So while Pain Quotidien still seems like a safe bet in a mega-touristy area like this one near Place Vendome - it is not a safe bet. Coffee is average, service... More

Don't get me wrong - I love Le Pain Quotidien 'normalement' but this branch of the chain was utterly, utterly dreadful. We've eaten with Le PQ many times in New York, London & other branches in and loved it every time - well trained pleasant staff, consistently good food, nice comfortable ambience. This particular restaurant however was just dreadful. There... More
