It is a nice place, just off bryant park, inviting for breakfast. The ambiente radiates "organic" wooden furniture, solo strings classical music (for me thats heavy stuff for breakfast, when one doesnt have all that attention for chamber music). The menue is simple and inviting. However, service was rather slow and we waited long for someone to take our order... More

The food is great in Le Pain Quotidien (we visited several) if you like Europen style breakfast (not the heavy US style) with good bread and tasteful sweet spreads.

Even though there were a couplet of nice waitresses the rest of the crew may serve as well as guards in a federal prison. The food arrives fast but they take ages to get the orders not to talk about the check that arrived more than 15 minutes late. If you want organic you better stay home.

Le Pain Quotidien was adjacent to my hotel on my most recent trip to NYC, and I found it the perfect spot to pick up takeaway lunch or breakfast for noshing in Bryant Park. I chose a grilled chicken and mozzarella tartine and a summery raspberry lemonade for lunch. (Seasonal and not too heavy!) For breakfast the next morning, a... More

Great breakfast stop, fresh, delicious, organic. This is not a fast food place. Plan to stay and enjoy.

Every time I come I order something different and the food is so fresh and delicious. I love the decor as well. They usually have a gluten free option which is nice!

We came in for coffee and hot chocolate and felt ignored from the start. Once we got someone's attention, we ordered and paid for our beverages and then waited, with no one ever telling us where to pick up our drinks. Finally we got our beverages and headed to a table to sit down to enjoy them. Before we could... More

I am a big fan of this chain. They offer great food options and reasonably priced. So I ate here several times on my recent NYC stays. But service at this particular restaurant is severely lacking. Plenty of staff around, but they like to socialize with each other rather than pay attention to customers. Even when I finally get waiter's... More

I normally love LPQ. Their food is delicious and organic and their pastries are excellent. However, I found the service at this particular location to be horrible. My server was rude and took way too long to acknowledge me. I won't be going back.
