We met a new friend here for Sunday brunch. It readily satisfied the cravings of vegetarians and carnivores alike. I loved my quinoa salad, though I wouldn't mind the beets being in bigger chunks. The avocado slices were perfect. Eggs and quiche were well cooked and well received. Coffee was hot and strong. Service was unobtrusive, yet patient. One disappointment... More

This was a nice place to go for breakfast with cute style mugs for great coffee. They had plenty of tables to sit, great options for breakfast, a welcoming atmosphere that is great for families.

This is a warm and welcoming venue off the cold wet streets of New York! Serves the best organic food and coffee :) I loved the communal table in the middle of the restaurant but did not get a chance to try it. Place was busy and since we were in no hurry, I thought the service was well timed.... More

I can recommend this place for a healthy breakfast if you've being overdoing it on the fried/greasy stuff at other times. We loved the breakfast basket with boiled eggs - my neice loved the orange juice and me the apple juice. Hot chocolate is a bit weird where you add the melted chocolate to the milk. Went back a second... More

While in NY I discovered this GEM of an ORGANIC and VEGAN restaurant (also has GF). I had an organic spiced hot apple cider that was delicious and an avocado toast that was simply amazing. My meal was so good, I went back the next day for another cider and also an organic 6 vegetable tart that was out of... More

Service could have been a lot better. Nice welcome received. Initial service was prompt and our waitress engaged with us and smiley and friendly. Drinks orders were taken whilst we perished the extensive and varied menu. The was delivered with hot milk after we had specifically said COLD milk. The 'English breakfast ' tea was green tea but swapped however... More

I ordered a the Belgian waffle and smoked salmon. The smoked salmon cost 6.50 and was worth every penny. Very delicious! However, my waffle also cost 6.50 and it was small and way too sugary. It was like eating candy. I did not enjoy it at all. My husband ordered a turkey avocado tartine and really enjoyed it. It cost... More

Le Pain Quotidien is a Belgium bakery-café chain that now operates over 200 cafés worldwide. This particular café is quite small and dominated by communal seating. This creates a cozy atmosphere though. The service was slow but this only added to the charm. We went there for a late breakfast. Unfortunately the pastries were already a little stale. The coffees... More

The service was slow. Sat down for breakfast at 8 am with few others in the restaurant, and it took nearly 20 minutes to receive a continental breakfast with hard boiled egg. The bread basket that came with the meal was somewhat meagre. And the cost was over $20 p.p. The restaurant itself is very pleasant and quiet ... perfect... More

We met a friend there for breakfast, a wonderful place to relax and have some of the best coffee we were able to find. The avocado toast is a must, the oatmeal was excellent as was everything else.
