So today after battling a morning commute I popped in for a must needed cup of hot coffee. The place is very clean and looks nice so I was excited to calm my nerves with caffeine however I was horrified when my order turned up!...More

We ordered one latte macchiato and one cappuccino to our breads. We had breads with tuna and boeuf basilic. They were very tasteful! The location is beautiful. Sadly our coffees were cold.

Had scrambled eggs which was ok, but too much cooked. Coffee with milk was like water, but cappucino was good. Croissant was ok. Service was very good, and interior nice. It was bit cold inside.

We visited for late breakfast and were ignored until the manager realised that no one had been near us for several minutes after we had found a table. The subsequent service almost bordered on the hostile and the food, when it arrived was poor -...More

Le Pain Quotidien is a classic in Belgium. You can go here for breakfast, brunch or lunch. What I love about the restaurant located in Sablon is the large orangery. During summer they open the roof of the organgery, so it's almost like you're sitting...More

This question isn't really for me. I just eat there. I suggest you email PQ direct, but wouldn't it be stale by the time it travelled from Belgium to the USA?!

It's found in Paris and New York, but this internationally renowned bakery is a Belgian invention, and many folks admit that this is still the best bread in the city. In truth, it's not just a bakery, but also a patisserie, delicatessen, snack bar and coffee house. Their farmers' bread is still baked by artisans. This shop (as well as its 10 other Brussels locations) has a provincial atmosphere, decorated with pine furniture and cream-coloured walls. The menu includes a selection of open sandwiches (try the typical cheese platter with radish and onions), salads and tarts.
