Brunching at Le Pain Quotidien

This past fall I had the pleasure of dining at Le Pain Quotidien for lunch.  The Englishman has heard me go on and on about my lovely lunch, so finally I decided to take him to Le Pain Quotidien, only for breakfast instead.

We started out our meal the true french way with a coffee and a croissant.  The croissant was light, flaky and buttery, and reminded me of the delicious croissants I enjoyed when I was in Paris a few years back.

The menu had lots of tantalizing breakfast items, but I decided to keep it simple and ordered a bowl of steel-cut oats topped with fresh berries and milk.  It may not be the most exciting breakfast, but it sure did hit the spot.

The Englishman ordered a ham and gruyere omelette that came with a slice of wheat bread and a baguette.  I took a few bites of his dish and loved the delicious melted cheese inside the omelette.

Le Pain Quotidien is a perfect little breakfast/brunch spot if you are looking for something light and tasty.   The pastries are definitely the standout at this spot, and I highly recommend the buttery, flaky, croissants.  Get a croissant and a coffee, sit outside on the patio and you will feel like you are sitting on the Champs Elysses in Paris, at least for a little  while.
