Yum!

This is a chain, and I often go there for lunch. Wonderful healthy meals, all organic I thinks and very consistent. The best bread in town and great bakery.

The espresso was good - and hot. And the pastries were very good - only wish I could have tried more without increasing the calorie count! After making my purchase, I spotted a salted caramel and chocolate tart on display. So I promptly got back in line, and was glad I did - it was delicious. Also, service was friendly.

We started off every morning at this place, grabbed some strong coffee and crossiants and we were out the door. One day we decided to try some of their pastries and desert items, and they were all excellent. You could easily sit down & relax but we hit the road.

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.

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

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.
