Located in the old post office building, LPQ, in any city I visit, never fails to deliver. Great lively atmosphere, hearty food (including many vegan options), lovely interiors and friendly staff. My only negative comment would be that my quinoa and chick pea soup arrived not very warm, but that was quickly taken care of by our waitress. I love... More

Went in this restaurant as it seemed quite friendly from outside. The inside is awesome indeed. Nice decoration and unusual. The soup was good but not awesome. Service is friendly. A bit expensive...

Used to be one of our favorit adresses in Ghent, now it is bad! Friendly staff but extremely long waiting time for our food (soup, salads and an omelet on a slice of bread. How difficult can this be, not even crowdy). The cesar salad was one of my favorits, now its rubbish for 16€, way too expensive for what... More

I only go to the Pain quotidien for my mother. She likes the atmosphere and location. I never really liked it there, but untill now it was okay. The service has always lacked a bit. But today it was really bad. My mother and sister were there 10 minutes before me, I had just arrived. The waitress was there immediatly... More

Fresh orange juice, homemade jams and creams, warm croissants and pains au chocolait! Service was super friendly and everything was nice presented. Not cheap but it's all about bio products so it's worth it!

sardine toast was the offer of the day: 3 tiny little hard pieces of toast with some unidentified spread, a half tomate and some cucumber, 11 euro! I was still hungry when I left the place

I was there for a short break and I had lunch with a friend and my daughter. The place is quite simple but gives you an idea of healthy kitchen and good food. I had a veg soup that was good and salmon sandwich and a lovely soft drink made with lemon juice and mint. Good atmosphere and very nice... More

Always loved their breads and cakes but the old adage of twice bitten is so true here. We ordered their scrambled eggs and bacon the first time round and it was lukewarm though tasty. Everyone deserves 2nd chance but - it was ice cold this time - I complained and they offered to warm up - I declined. Not suitable... More

This branch of Le Pain Quotidien is the same as the others in Belgium. We had great cappuccino and chocolate brioche. This is a great stop on a lovely square in the best shopping area in Ghent!
