It warm enough to eat outside on sidewalk for Easter morning breakfast. The restaurant was very buzy but the staff made our breakfast delightful. Fresh waffles and omelets with coffee and afterwards, off to the Mall.

Food was barely ok & service was terrible. We ordered a bread basket with spreads & jellies. Spreads & jellies never arrived. There were 3 of us. 2 of our breakfasts were served. We waited 15 minutes for the third, but it did not come. Only when I got up and spoke to the manager did our third meal arrive.... More

Warm Goat Cheese salad was delicious and satisfying. Didn't need an appetizer. Great meal . Would patronize the chain again. Was my first time, definitely not my last

Le Pain Quotidien is great chain. We enjoy their breakfast in any city. As usual, we enjoyed the soft-boiled eggs, cheese danish, ham and Gruyere omelet, and croissants. The salad, extra bread, ample butter, etc. all come with these dishes. The black tea and coffee is excellent. This is a breakfast to savor and enjoy, so take your time. It... More

Tried the waffles, very good. Also tried the ham and cheese omelet, this was my favorite. Cappuccino was very good, have to admit, not a fan of the mugs without handles.

The waffles are amazing. Try them if you don't believe me. The goat cheese and mushroom omelette is also a great choice. The only issue I had was the staff in one of the locations. You choose your own seat and we were passed by every waiter multiple times before finally getting up and ordering coffee at the bar while... More

Early evening and the Canelé were sold out so I presume they are good. Had the Madeleines instead. Lovely. But will have to go again to try them.
