At le Pain Quotidien they still bake their bread the way it should be, creating a delicious brown loaf with a firm crust. Order an amazing French breakfast with this delicious bread and phenomenal eggs with a coffee on the side or try the homemade chocolate spread (it’s divine!). All breads, croissants and pastries are freshly baked and the chefs offer a huge choice of small and bigger dishes and cakes.
