Went for morning coffees while on a weekend in Grenoble. Place offers standard choice of hot drinks and just adequate choice of bakes/dessert. First time had really great citrusy crispy pastry meringues lemon pie (nice!!!).

The only place in Grenoble that offers a great all-rounded selection of food. However, every time I go there, the staff are quite flustered and rude, particularly one man who has made quite a few rude (and sexist) comments to us.

As a coffee enthusiast who has spent a lot of time sampling the cafés in Grenoble's centre-ville (historic downtown), I can say Pain et Cie is one of the top cafés in the area. Both the ambiance and drinks are great.

Read for 2 hours there with a friend on a rainy afternoon. So toasty and warm inside with a relaxed ambience. Cappuccino and tarte noix is perfection!

Stopped for a lunch and was surprised to see that the menu has now less choice than it used to. The meals are bigger though and all still very well done.

If you are looking for a breakfast / brunch or simply a coffee with a croissant ou a pain au chocolat combined with a lovely atmosphere, it's THE place to go. The service is a bit slow and/or stressed out now and then, and the free WIFI doesn't work. Otherwise just great !
