Beautiful bread and pastries made with organic flour. Smoothies, pancakes, organic eggs. My college athletes loved the hipster Avocado-Toast and Chia-Seed menu options

Consistent with Le Pain Quotidian's focus on fresh, healthy food, this restaurant on a busy corner on Main St. is no exception. Excellent breakfast menu. However, seating is uncomfortable and tightly spaced and service is disappointing....cold and officious staff do not make this a friendly...More

Had a delicious salmon omelette, blueberry muffin and juice smoothie. There's a nice atmosphere with a real French feel. The people working were nice and friendly too

Great location, food and coffee. Be prepared to wait as it's a busy place. We got a table downstairs in the back for brunch this weekend just gone. Food was fantastic, had the avocado and salmon on toast. Latte made fresh and hot, very tasty.
