This was my second time here with my beautiful Fiancée and I loved it each time. It's the best of a coffee place and a sit down restaurant. There is a great big, long table in the center you can share with others (don't worry it's large enough you won't have to actually talk to them if you don't want... More

We've been here during two trips to the city; once for breakfast, once for a late lunch. Both times were great. The meals were very good and affordable. The service can be a bit slow but it's a great place for a casual meal or cup of coffee.

We wanted to find a nice little place to have a quick healthy breakfast close to our hotel in New York. We found this lovely place with homemade breads & pastries & decided to give it a go! I went for the smoked salmon breakfast with homemade breads, it was a really nice, healthy & tasty breakfast. The restaurant was... More

We stayed at Bryant park hotel and this place was convenient to the hotel. I had the veggie quiche which was good. My husband had a hard boiled egg and the salmon plate. I like that they have calories listed on the menu. The pastries looked really good, but we didn't try them.

My wife and I were searching out breakfast by Bryant Park and discovered something completely different. Le Pain has a wonderful atmosphere in this bustling city. Communal tables, rustic interior and terrific organic food. Best breakfast we had in New York on our last stay. Their baked goods were fresh and the jams were excellent. The coffee was good too....

Made two visits here, and in both cases the croissants (in the morning visit) and sandwich (lunchtime visit) were excellent. However, when they get busy it seems that you can wait for ages - I had to virtually grab hold of a waitress at lunchtime to give her my order. If I go there again and the weather is suitable...

We had two completely different experiences here. We came in one weekday afternoon for a pastry. The place was packed. After being seated, we waited for service. After fifteen minutes of being ignored, we got up and went to the to-go counter. I ordered the apricot almond tart and hot apple cider to go, and we went across the street... More

On Bryant park, close to 6th avenue. Already opened at 8:00. Very good place for a breakfast close to time square and empire state building. Nice place, similar to the ones in Belgium. A lot of choice of bread and viennoiserie (pain au chocolat, croissant, ...) with a big diversity of jam, chocolate pasta. Service could be faster.

In such a wonderful location opposite Bryant Park, we expected this upscale bakery to be reasonable. However when we first walked in three staff members behind the bar ignored us. When finally someone came to seat us she was unfriendly and seemed annoyed that we had a stroller which she tried to remove and park across the emergency exit. Our... More

We love the food, which is great for Europeans. The ambience is also beautiful (a lot of space, communal tables, pleasant lighting). Not all Pain Quotidien have good service, but this one is not too crowded and waiters are great.
