Very nice and healthy food; delicious deserts, little expensive though. Service was great!! We had a very nice experience with our family near NY Public Library right in front of Bryant Park

Le Pain Quotidien at Bryant Park is an excellent place for both breakfast and lunches if you stay in the neighbourhood. The menu is not too long, but contains everything you want in both warm and cold dishes, as well as drinks including freshly squeezed orange juice. And their bread baskets are varied and plentiful. We spent 5 days in... More

Myself and a friend spent 4 days in NYC for a long weekend this past week and out of all of our food choices which were spot on, Le Pain Quotidien ranked among the best. Not far from Times Square, we were expecting an expensive menu because of location but were pleasantly surprised. The menu was both fair and packed... More

Great atmosphere and pastries. Coffee was just ok. The only real complaint I had was the ordering process seemed really unorganized? Other than that you couldn't ask for a better setting pulling up a chair in Bryant park and enjoying all there is to take in.

Being surprised about the Le Pain Quotidien at 83 Broadway - we were somewhat disappointed. Food was good, but a total different setup (no window seats) and somewhat less clean. Very slow service staff, despite a 1/4 occupancy...

The service today was quick and friendly. The food very fresh and satisfying. This is a turnaround from last year when I visited previously. Sure, the food has always been LPQ standard menu which I enjoy. The big change is the attitude of the staff and the quality of the service 👍 which has improved dramatically. I even asked if... More

I just moved to NYC and was walking through Bryant Park needing a quick bite to eat and a spot to do some writing. My funds were limited, so I had a Turkey Sandwich and a mint lemonade (with real mint). The staff is super friendly and accommodating. Jerry, the service manager and host gave me tips on how to...

Had a late breakfast here with the family. We only had 40 minutes to get it done and were worried we'd run out of time given the crowd and low number of servers. Despite that, we managed to have breakfast in 35 minutes. Probably due to not getting anything special/complicated (croissant with ham was the most complex dish). Food is... More

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.
