What happened?

I cannot believe! I used to love this place so much. A few years back I was weekly going to PQ. Now, the food is really average and the staff so not responsive... Such a shame!

Not welcomed, service was incredibly slow and when it arrived did not smile, help or try to be pleasant. Food was average to say the least. The poultry tartine had little poulet. Then when I paid the bill and was over charged by 10chf and my recept not offered and disposed of behind counter by the waitress. A great food... More

Having been to two other off these Restaurants in New York and Brussels this was by far the worst. I would definitely not go back.

The place is not very big and when we arrived at 11 a.m. on saturday it was already full, but besides small table there is also a big one that you can share with others. Wee took the brunch and it was very good. You can choose between 3 different menus for brunch, a hot drink + orange juice. The... More

Not Swiss at all but still a great place to order a coffee and croissant. I saw people having some nice breakfasts too. Cosy, not pretentious.

I have been at "Le Pain Quotidien" in Paris, in Madrid and the 3 stores in Geneva. The ones in Geneva have constantly shortage of viennoiserie. If you get there for brunch after 11:00-12:00 forget it, some of the viennoiserie will me missing (like croissant, brioche, etc) or just… all of them!!! On the other hand I am not the... More

The tables are very small and it takes forever for someone to come get your order. On top of it, if you pull out a laptop they will tell you that "the internet doesn't work", which is really the short for "you're not welcome to work here". I won't come back.

This bakery really helped make our 18 hrs in Geneva very memorable. We were touring around the early morning in Geneva while people were sleeping in, when after some time we got hungry and were blown away with the quality of their breakfast, the beauty of their interior, the kindness of their service, and the swiss chocolate hot chocolate.

I found this place on a short walk from the hotel. It opens early which helps when you are here to work. The cafe au lait was great on first two visits but not as good on the third. So I downgrade a bit for consistency. Pastries are very good. I loved the feel of the place. Service is ok.... More
