We visit Le Pain Quotidien wherever we are traveling and find one. We especially like their location in St Pancras Station (but it's usually quite busy). They serve wonderful food (and not too much!) and there are vegetarian and vegan choices. Service is always friendly and efficient. We loved this location.

Great food, great staff, fascinating decor; we had AVOCADO TOAST @ 7.50 - with mashed avocado, super seeds, citrus cumin salt, lemon juice and olive oil and topped with feta. Delicious.

I have long been a fan of le pain quotidien. However, this branch has a big issue with service. Firstly on weekends they will make you queue (even if seats available) to give the impression that it is crowded. Then good luck getting someone to take your order promptly. At least the food used to be good but now the... More

Such slow service and whilst the staff are friendly there is no sense of speed or responding to customers in a quick way. Food great but service poor. Left but still did not get the hot drink I ordered.

Popped in for lunch staff friendly, food great but appallingly slow service! There are not enough waiters and there was no sense of urgency- unlike any other PQ I have visited- nearly walked out twice! Fifteen minutes still waiting for my cup of tea!

Although the menu painted a delicious picture, the food we received was very average. They couldn't be bothered to take the butt end out of the tomatoes which was unpleasant, the scrambled eggs were underseasoned and as average as it gets, the scone was quite nice but there was no sauce at all on the plate so overall the meal...

Lovely staff and a nice choice on the menu. For lunch I had avocado on toast with scrambled eggs and could of eaten it 10 times and my friend had chicken pie but expected it to come with gravy. A little pricey but what do you expect for London! The cafe also looked lovely at night.. glad we chose there

I am glad there are a few of these nice restaurants around the city of London because you don't have to worry about finding a good place with excellent service and healthy food.

After shopping on Saturday at the market, we were hungry. Saw the restaurant from across the street and thought, if it has bread in the title I'm there. Everything was delicious. We were seated right away but the service was slow. I will forgive that because it was Saturday and other shoppers had just bombarded the place. There were 6... More
