General Info
We’re a Belgian bakery and restaurant serving simple, wholesome and seasonal food. Le Pain Quotidien means “the daily bread” in French, and like our name suggests, we’re bakers at heart. Although our handmade, organic bread is how we got our start, we serve a variety of healthy options like organic coffee, pastries, eggs, tartines, soups, salads and desserts. At Le Pain Quotidien, we believe that food should be simple, nourishing and delicious. That’s why we source ingredients that are local or organic whenever possible. We also believe in the importance of eating a healthy, plant-based diet, so you’ll find many vegetarian or vegan options on our menu.

be warned

Me & the wife love Le Pain Quotidien. But we tried a new location this past weekend. (50 West, 72nd Street)
We were given a table that was close to the kitchen, and the Restrooms. My wife was watching one of the kitchen staff preparing food, he was cutting bread, then he stopped and bent down to straighten the rubber floor mat with his hands, and then continued to cut the bread and prepare the food. Then i noticed another staff member from the kitchen walk into the restroom wearing his latex gloves, and after doing his business, came out still wearing the gloves.
I hope the manager reads this review and takes action to fix these unsanitary issues.
We still love the food, but we won't return to this location.

Great sandwiches, soups, and pastries!

This is the closest to real French pastries I have found. The raspberry tart is almost as good as those I had when I studied in France. The bread is quite good and I am partial to their tuna sandwich and they always have delicous soups. Brunch is great too - I recommend the bread basket that comes with a delicious hazlenut spread - sort of like Nutella but without the chocolate, and two delicious jams. Great cafe au lait as well. I love this place!

Excellent budget choice

This is a great place to go for lunch or dinner for those who don't want to spend more than $15 on a drink and a meal. The sandwiches are divine, and the bread is obviously fresh. The setting is relaxing. (probably not for the very picky eater, but the staff is so nice that they will probably do what they can to help out.) A block from the Central Park 72nd St. entrance, and about 2 blocks from the subway.

There is hardly a place better in this neighborhood for great coffee, light lunches, and a relaxing atmosphere. Very French!

For lonely hearts

Beautiful place to enjoy your coffee and a small lunch. The big, community table makes it easy to meet new people.

On the expensive side though...
