Description: 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.

Second visit in resent years. The quality of the ingredients are first class, simply put, the sum of the parts are definitely greater than the individual ones. Will visit again without doubt.

From sweet to savory this high quality chain offers a great balance of sweet pastries and healthy breakfast and lunch fare. The quality is exceptional and the quinoa cake (think meatloaf made with quinoa) is amazing.

While not inexpensive LPQ offers amazing food in a relaxed atmosphere. It allows you to unwind and on many occasions to meet new people who are also sitting at the communal table. It is always a delight.

Came here with family aged 13 to 82 and everybody loved it! The youngest had an amazing avocado toast and a chocolate croissant so she was happy. The older members tried Parisian ham sandwich delicious - and took half a loaf of the outstanding bread home- just couldn't get enough of it! Love this place will return next time we are in LA area.

If you like French food (even though they are from Belgium ) this is like paradise. Delicious pastries for breakfast or dessert for lunch. Some of the product are on the pricey side for those on a budget.
