Description: Whether you are on the go or have time to linger, Le Pain Quotidien is the perfect place to catch a break from the city life. The homey interior matches our organic farm food roots; a splendid display of everything from tarts to tartines can be found here at any time of day. And there's always enough fresh bread to go around!

We were lucky to find a quick space here one Thursday evening before an event at the Natural History Museum; effectively a pre theatre slot. A pleasant busy bar-café atmosphere and good food and wine. Although we have been to Le Pain Quotidien at the Southbank many times for breakfast this was the first mail meal we had eaten at one. The service was prompt and the duck confit with additional vegetables, and a glass of wine, made an ideal meal.

Met a friend a ditched other cafe in favour of Pain - always a good expereince ( waterloo, st pancreas etc) .
Great coffee and we shared a divine raspberry tart - wicked and worth going off the rails for !

Indoor and outdoor seating and clean loos ( major achievement in this area of London).

this is a block from where I live. I love the cafe atmosphere. Service is good....always have the scrambled eggs and salmon. Very good! A nice simple european cafe menu, great coffee and pastry. It fills up quickly and stays busy as this is just outside South Kensington station and all the tourists come here. I still don't mind and its my favorite in the neighborhood

It is a really nice bistrot in the heart of South Kensington. The menu is concise but various with many french-inspired dishes. A special mention for the desserts: definitely delicious.
Waiters are fast and gentle. Low prices for the district. I would recommend it.

First visit to Le Pain Quotidien for coffee and dessert ;they need to open in Scotland, fantastic selection of cakes and pastries . Sat outside with a friend and watched the world go by on a busy Saturday afternoon. Service with a smile , so much choice , eventually chose the strawberry cheese cake and my friend had the chocolate bombe slice. Large cups of coffee which were practically the size of soup bowls. Looking around the lunch time fare looked good , plenty choice and lots of happy diners. Next time I will need to try Breakfast or Lunch. Would be wonderful if Le Pain Quotidien could make its way north.
