Very nice options, good food indeed. But you can be surprised if it's early in the morning and you were just looking for a regular breakfast... With the proper spirit, it's a great meal !

I found Le Pain by chance while trying to find a good cup of coffee (still not easy in NY! Too many Starbucks) and decided to go upstairs and get a full brunch. The egg frittata was delicious, fresh bread and flavorful fruit. Lots of seating at noon on a Sunday. A great place to get food and energize before... More

We had breakfast in this establishment, where it was easy to get around, as its arrangement and basic menu are very similar to other restaurants of the same chain which we knew in several countries . We sat at the communal table, because they had a big assortment of marmalades anf honey, although later we realized that if you sit... More

Open faced sandwiches were excellent! Lemonades (regular, strawberry, mint) were tasty but a little on the tart side (no sugar). Chicken Cobb salad was very good. Great communal atmosphere. All organic and fresh. Good variety on the menu. Fair prices for the city near Rockefeller center off 5th ave

I always love Le Pain. The croissants are always great, coffee good. Love the fact they have the nutella and all kinds of jam on the tables as favours.

Distinctly European (Belgian influenced primarily), Le Pain Q was a le pain experience. I don't mind a health conscious menu and I'm certainly comfortable with communal dining, but the food was simply inedible and the wine completely undrinkable. We literally tasted both, called the server for our bill, making up an excuse for beating a hasty retreat, and paid and... More

I was expecting the famous omelets LPQ is famous for. Not here... Otherwise , no complains. The usual polite staff, great coffee and tasty food.

French countryside cafe in the heart of midtown. Friendly service. Warm ambience. Coffee, croissants, and the New York Times.

Happened across this coffee shop during a freezing cold day in December. Cold & hungry we welcomed a sit down & a hot drink. Never been to an organic cafe before & somethings on the extensive menu were alien to us! We opted for soup of the day which was tasty & hot served with great bread & the homemade... More
