Nice place with good food (often overcrowded)

Good choice of lunch and breakfast meals, nice place. Sunday brunches are great and very staffing. The place is very often overcrowded and expect waiting for a table, especially for brunch.

First café I came across with decent coffee! Beautiful ambience. Perfect for brunch or any time of the day, can sit in or outside. Staff super friendly and the selection of pastries, bread and spreads and absolutely delicious. They serve locally made and imported spreads as well. Gets very busy, especially on a weekend!

I've been to this café everytime I've been in Grenoble and I'm sure I'll come here the next times I visit the city. And I only come for one thing - the Waffles (the French call them gauffres). You pay 4€ and you're given a waffle and three or four small bowls with nutella, speculoos (biscuit cream) and usually some... More

While briefly staying in Grenoble I visited Pain & Cie for lunch and was very satisfied. The menu has sufficient choice to cater for most tastes and the prices are reasonable. The staff were very friendly and attentive and the restaurant had a relaxed local feel to it that added to the character. The food was well presented and tasted... More

It is a decent choice for a Grenoblois family with baby since it is spacious, very close to public transportation, warm in the winter and chilly in the summer.

In a country without real breakfast culture, this place is one of the few locations where breakfast-lovers can go. And it's really worth it! Breakfasts here consist of a "core item" (like one egg, a yogurt, ...), served with fresh bread, an assortment of delicious jams and chocolate spreads, and a hot beverage. Adding a salty component like the "assiette... More
