Good bread and hot beberages, but very few options for a brunch. Just Benedictine eggs and that is it! A little crowded and the service not too good. One visit is enough.

Very good brunch right across Bryant Park. Quiche is Yummy, plus good mimosas and coffee. Not cheap but definitely worth it. Ambiance and service very nice as well.

If you eat at one Le Pain Quotidian you've eaten at them all. Average food--top of the takeout food prices, but the location in Bryant Park makes it worth the price. Bryant Park is a great park and a good place to enjoy your sandwich while watching New Yorkers walk by. There is also a lending library in the summer,... More

Even though this place is a chain, it didn't feel that way. The pastry selections were excellent and delicious and you could get a full breakfast if you wanted. Nice service and good people watching.

We had the "petit dejuener" with eggs, and additional cold ham and cheese. The coffee and the orange juice was good, but the bread was too dry. The restaurant was very noisy and there was no soap in the restrooms, which were also frequented by the staff.

Thank Per F

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
