This is a great place for lunch in friendly atmosphere! Everything tastes fresh and looks good. I love their chicken salad & beetroot juice.

This restaurant was very crowded/popular but it appeared that they wanted to help us find a spot, however tight. Service was spotty and when we ordered, it came out fast but my quiche was cold.

I wouldn't recommend this place. It was expensive with poor quality of service. The choice available isn't great. The service was also poor having mixed up our order. The toilet was also out of service and although we made the waitress aware of this, it took 20 minutes until it was resolved.

After a long flight and a short nap, we woke hungry. Happy Cow listed this little place and we decided to see what it was about. While the girls shared veggie platters, B had an open faced chicken sandwich with cheese and mustard. Despite my (very) limited French, ordering was no problem. My first cafe au lait de soya in...

Went to this place twice. First time the waiter spoke English and everything was great so we thought we'd take the kids for breakfast. This time the waiter did not speak English but he tried hard. He mucked up the order while being watched by the guy at the coffee machine who I assume was the manager. The manager spoke... More

This is a very popular chain, like Starbucks, of French food: don't go! Better choose a more authentic Brasserie or Bistro, you are in Paris! The restaurant is super pretentious, the food tasted like it was freezed, very small portions and super expensive. You can have good French food in the same block for half of the price.

One of the rare places in Paris where you can find organic pain au chocolat! I have been going to this place for years on an off and particularly appreciate the recent changes. Especially with the service. Significant improvement!! Which was much needed. Manager and his team are wonderful.They all deserve congratulations. It's like the original concept of Pain Quotidien...

I've eaten at Le Pain many different times in many different cities and I am usually so impressed by the healthy options and great quality of food. This time was simply meh. Should have gone to the bistro across the street. My husband ordered an open face sandwich and me a salad. Both looked thrown together with meager ingredients. Not... More

Breakfast looks promising. All organic. The menu promises interesting dishes that are not similar to the bistro menus or cafes nearby. But, pay attention ! Check the bill. We ate there three times. Every morning we received a different bill for the same order. Except that, everything is fine. it's a pity
