Lovely and really nice place: stripped decoration, marvellous things for breakfast! Everything we tried was delicious: coffee, yougurt, croissant, levain breads, etc. And you can buy and bring home breads and pastries! Attendants were not so fast we would like to, but this point does...More

I love the small space of the very first Pain Quotidien. The people are friendly, and the food is always of quality. Great for vegetarians and vegans too. I come here regularly, since years now, for breakfast and lunch, sometimes daily. I work right around...More

For PQ enthusiasts, this is the original 'PainQuot", which opened in 1990, before the concept of the shared breakfast table had caught on worldwide. So if you're in Brussels, make the pilgrimage! (Though the PQ on Avenue Louise or on Chaussee de Boendael are larger...More

Actually, the place is great for breakfast, brunch, lunch AND you can buy bread and patisserie. Especially recommended in the weekend!

I came alone and sat at the shared group table with a good book. I had a detox breakfast (egg, gluten-free bread, fruit and yogurt, green tea and a detox juice) and some mini Dutch pancakes. It was delicious, simple, filling and healthy. The staff...More
