Outstanding food and service

Really enjoyed the gourmet breakfast with the european experince. Felt like I was in a Parisian cafe. Enjoyed my omelette, tasty authentic breads and wonderful coffee. It's not inexpensive but it is certainly worth the price.

Food with a French touch is OK. But the menu tends to be on the expense side. And the service consistently slow, inefficient and completely impersonal. They simply do not care. Also poorly coordinated. The seating outside is nice but The service even worse.

I always love having coffee, breakfast and small bites here, not to mention the ambient and location that is just at the corner of my office. It never disappointed me.

Went for breakfast. Food was disappointing unless you like stale bread. Service was just plain bad, somehow managing to be disdainful, slow and incompetent all at the same time.

Light touch menus executed with flair and panache. Excellent freshly prepared innovative French (Belgian!) style food. The staff are well trained and extremely helpful and friendly. We returned many times, the smoked salmon omelette was particularly superb, the fresh fruit cups were healthy and wholesome. If you value healthy eating Pain Quotidien is a simple choice

Le Pain still has the best chain restaurant gazpacho and the spreads for the breads are an awesome treat. However, the egg dish (I had the frittata) tasted like it was, well, microwaved. No the Le Pain experience I recall from many years ago. Will I go back for my traditional and faithful faves? Yes. Will I stay from the... More

I was grateful to find a high quality bread bakery in focused on organics. Delicious chocolate chip cookies. The baguette was not my favorite but I brought home a rye to share with others.

Stopped in for breakfast after the morning rush. Service was slow and seemed disorganized. Between the three of us we had two omelettes and a quiche. Nothing impressed. My quiche was overlooked. I doubt if we'll return.

We looked forward to this meal, but left disappointed. The staff were not particularly helpful, and the meals left a lot to be desired, though they were expensive. Wouldn't recommend.
