Perfect pastries, coffee and lunches

Consistently good coffee, pastries and lunches if you don't mind sitting at a large group table. (There are some tables for couples.). I've been to Le Pain Quotidien in many different cities and countries (including New York and Moscow) and I've never been disappointed.

We loved Le Pain Quotidien in New York and were expecting a similar experience in Beuges. However, although the surroundings are similar, we were disappointed in the food. We had open sandwiches for lunch and although the quality of the ingredients was good - smoked salmon and bocconcini - the bread was ordinary and the price of two very small... More

Didn't realise till we were inside that is was a 'pain quotidien' (a few of these in London). Staff were lovely and the food was yummy.

This is the perfect place for a long and quiet breakfast. I love Le Pain Quotidien in Paris and was thrilled when I found the place in Bruges. The special spread is amazing and worth the visit alone. Add the limonade and a fresh croissant and you have yourself a delicious breakfast or lunch.

Bowls of coffee, the smell of fresh bread, plates of eggs and smoked salmon and a huge table shared with everyone else! Coffe was good and I also had the watermelon cooler with lots of mint which was very refreshing. Wanted to go back later and couldn't find it! A very happy Brugge memory.

We've been to various Le Pain Quotidien locations in France and England, but this location was by far the best. The food was just as good as in other locations, but the staff here was the friendliest and most attentive. There are also a good number of seats and the menu seemed to be a bit larger than some other... More

The food was good - we had scrambled eggs - but at 10.20 a plate for eggs and bacon it seemed a bit excessive. If you want just a croissant, or some sort of bread (as the name would indicate) then I imagine that their prices are fine.

The service was awful, waitstaff struggling to keep up (restaurant was not busy) Cook had to tell waitstaff what to do step by step. Average baked goods, croissant was soft with no sense of flakiness. There has to be better in Brugge

The group tried several different pastries that were all equally delicious. The coffee and hot chocolate are served in bowls. I was so pleasantly surprised by the organic menu we ordered the full breakfast with bread, chocolate croissant, baguette, egg, fresh orange juice and a hot beverage. on each table there are 4 different homemade spreads to choose from and...
