Le Pain Quotidien is our go to place for breakfast and brunch whenever we go to New York City. We discovered this restaurant back in 2012 when we were in Georgetown, Washington DC. This is an international chain of bakery/restaurant founded in Brussels. Le Pain Quotidian literally means daily bread. It started with the goal of serving fresh oven baked bread. A common theme in any Le Pain Quotidian that strikes you as soon as you enter is the long wooden communal table at it’s center. They use organic ingredients whenever possible and offers seasonal menus. I usually try to order from their seasonal menu when available.


We had brunch at their TriBeCa location the other day. My husband got the Organic Steel Cut Oatmeal with bananas, walnuts and maple syrup and Two Organic Soft-Boiled Eggs served with their organic bread.



I on the other hand ordered from their seasonal menu and had a Ginger-Plum Pistachio Muffin and the Baked Eggs with Smoked Salmon and Dill.
