This is a fairly standard place and relievers what you would hope and expect. Service was excellent, fast, friendly, efficient. Food was ok, I would prefer real bacon rather than the crispy ham for a breakfast.

A quick visit to grab a sandwich turned into a slightly longer lunch thanks to the quality of the food. Salads and Tartines were ordered by a group of us. I had the smoked chicken, avocado and harissa tartine and it was delicious, it was perhaps a bit small and I could have eaten two of them, but perhaps it's... More

It's just delicious - the scrambled eggs, Belgian waffles, French toast... everything. Plus, it's reasonably priced for a Bio shop. Thumbs up.

The food in this branch of Le Pain Quotidien was incredible - I'd recommend the French toast - and the atmosphere was lovely. As with most branches internationally, it was very affordable. The staff were also really courteous, but the service was incredibly slow - one or two of the waitresses seemed rushed off their feet, whilst some of their... More

Staff were very friendly and helpful. The menu is in Dutch and English. We recommend the fresh hot croissant with ham and cheese, the french toast and the... More

Our bread is made today exactly as it was in the beginning: with only organic stone-ground flour, salt, and water, kneaded and shaped by hand and baked in a hearth under the watchful eye of artisan bakers.We insist on the freshest and finest ingredients. If we can't find them, we make them ourselves.Our shelves are lined with the products we've created: the jams and chocolate spreads on the communal table, the granola in your parfait, the coffee that fills your bowl.
