Pretty good

Tried the Roasted turkey and avocado tartine and soup of the day (carrot). You eat in a communal table which is cool, but a problem to a leftie like me. Oh! And the croissants are delicious! I definitely would go back.

Pain Quotidien has many locations which are very similar in appearance derived from its French heritage. In addition to fine café and pastries, they offer light meals to suit many needs throughout the day. The restaurants are spacious and warm and my coffee place of choice.

Every time I am in New York with my husband, we have breakfast here. It reminds him of Europe, and he feels like the owners have somehow managed to bring that sense of continental feeling with them over the Atlantic. I go along reluctantly because I just want my bagel with cream cheese, which I always really miss when I... More

Nice surprise as I had never been to the Upper East side location thinking it would be yet another chain wannabe boulangerie! However, this is a cute and easy lunch spot when working in NYC (downtown). Great choice of healthy salads and lovely ambiance (for a chain resto.) Ingredients are organic, big plus! Simple boulangerie offers: pains au chocolat, croissants,... More

Communal tables and uncomfortable chairs. Waiter was polite, but basically inattentive. My friend had the Paris Ham & Aged Gruyere with mustard trio. Sounds good, but it was one plain slice of bread cut into 4 pieces with 2 thin slices of ham and a slice of cheese just placed on top. Not heated or toasted. For $17. My frittata... More

We love Le Pain Q - always fresh and healthy with fast service. This was no exception. The green juice is a great addition to the menu!! Don't miss the avocado toast or hummus tartine.

We visited two locations of this chain on our recent rip to New York, when we were looking for a fairly inexpensive place to grab a bit of food. As far as chain breakfast places go, this is by far my favorite. It is more interesting and better quality than Starbucks, and a thousand times better quality than Au Bon... More

As far as I remember this "branch" was the first one in New York back in 99. fresh bread, organic ingrediances, wonderful coffee and long communal tables where you can't sit for your own.

Nice place. Communal tables. Organic food. The soups and the breads are really good. Service quite slow, inattentive and somewhat disorganized, but still a good place for a decent lunch when you are out shopping.

Found a hair in my Avocado/Turkey sandwich. Waitressed apologized and brought me a new sandwich asap. Location is great and vibe is fun. Only problem is the washroom.... There's only one for an entire restaurant. Doesn't make sense!

Staying in SoHo

Neighborhood Profile
SoHo
Once the artistic hub of New York, SoHo is now one of the premiere shopping destinations in the world. Housing everything from the most popular luxury brands to swank boutiques you won’t find anywhere else, this is a sophisticated shopper’s dream come true. Broadway is teeming with big-name stores and people during the day, while Prince and Spring Streets are the other main drags to explore. Take a detour down the quieter side streets to see the real star of the district – the world’s largest collection of intricate and elegant cast-iron architecture. What were once warehouses and art studios are now meticulously restored loft buildings favored by many of New York’s celebrities, making SoHo one of the trendiest addresses in the city.
