Some of the food was good (had lunch and breakfast), especially bread. We had a good experience at lunch, so went back for breakfast. We were seated at the same time as another couple, and they had their drinks and order placed before any server came to our table. I did manage to flag one down, but was told that... More

Love the communal tables and rustic vibe. The food is all fresh and tasty. They are a little pricey.

Unlike other reviews, we had excellent and attentive service. Food was fresh and delicious. I had Quiche Lorraine. Wish I had some now. Family of 4 - everyone enjoyed their food. We ordered a bread basket also...Soooo good!

Had a quick breakfast at Le Pain, very close to our hotel. We were warmly greeted and seated quickly. A mix of large tables of friends, families with kids, couples and solos. There is no mistaking that they are very proud of their selection of organic and natural products, but not in an overly pretentious way. I ordered the steel... More

Service was absolutely terrible. Truly terrible! Food was good, once I could find what was available. The cashiers had their own conversation going on and knew nothing about what they were serving...including the prices and ingredients.

Great atmosphere and very friendly staff make this restaurant an excellent place for breakfast. I had a salmon breakfast and a bowl of cafe latte - superb! But a little expensive at about 20$ total.

We were looking for a restroom around Bryant Park and it was lunch time so we went in here. The fare was lighter and healthier than most restaurants which was fine for me. But my companions prefer hamburgers and this was not to their liking. I had the chicken soup with Quinoa and a latte and loved it. They were... More

Went for lunch. It is on the expensive side for what you get, and definitely not catering for those with gluten intolerance. They do offer a gluten-free "option" for the tartines (open-face sandwiches), I guess that it was my mistake to expect good quality gluten-free bread for my sandwich; after all, they bake excellent breads. To my surprise, the gluten-free... More
