Great soup

This a a Belgian chain that knows how to keep its quality. I love their soup for lunch. At breakfast, the granola is superb. In fact I buy huge quantities to take home. It is the finest granola in the world.

We spent the weekend of the 24th in New York City, and we were looking for a nice place for a breakfast. My sister recommended this place, and said it was a chain. I was a little wary at first, because I was really looking forward to a nice restaurant. What a surprise I had! We got there and it... More

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.

Service could have been a lot better. Nice welcome received. Initial service was prompt and our waitress engaged with us and smiley and friendly.

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
