Great breakfast

The food was excellent and the service was good. We had breakfast here every morning and loved it. Don't expect a full English and you will be fine.

Breakfast at Le Pain Quotidien was a bad experience.The "Belgian" waffle with berries @ $7.50 wasnot Belgian at all. Instead of being light and crispy, it was DRY and HEAVY. One needed a sip of coffee after each bite. When we saw the puny (about 3 1/2" x 5") we were quite surprised, but after tasting, it was quite enough.... More

Fairly unimpressed with this to be honest, we paid a small fortune for what apparently were micro portions of average food. The waiter wasn't too impressed with us, and we ended up having to go to another place after to get an actual meal. Wouldn't recommend unless your appetite is non existent.

Service was very slow for the morning. The server never came back to check on whether we need something else. It was not very busy at the time we went because they just opened. At 7 am, they were not even ready for customers to come in. I think when an establishment indicates they open at 7, they should be... More

A very nice experience eating healthy food at this restaurant. Organic and well prepared. The service was very good. The menu was well displayed with many selections. After it's done, treat your self to one of their wonderful tarts. I have been told that reliability can be planned at this establish. Also, if the weather is nice, you can eat... More

The place is nicely decorated and so was the service, but the food is just ok, especially when the price is not that good. The shrimps avocado toast was just nice. Apricot and almonds was a nice comfort. The plate serving plate was really annoying and not very practical.

I wasn't expecting much on this restaurant but surprisingly delicious. Its in front of Bryant Park so location is very good. Ambiance is cool, cappuccino is a little bit blunt though. Liked the avocado toast!

A very hot day in NY and a need for frequent stops to refresh, having missed out breakfast at our hotel Le Pain fitted the bill for a brunch. Great choices on the menu particularly for the wife who is veggie and went for the steel cut oatmeal...very good croissant for me and breakfast tea along with sides of fruit.... More

Le Pain Quotidien (Daily Bread) offers hot/cold beverages, sandwhiches, soups, tartines, quiches and a number of other items. To go or to eat at Bryant Park. Have a double shot and a croissant, and let that moment sink in before rushing off. Note that it's busy, so if you're really really really hungry or have a great appetite, be prepared... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
