We visited this place this morning for brunch. The waitress made a face as I asked if we could take the only empty table (beats me why this place was so full). She grumpily cleared the table but didn't bother wiping out the mess of food crumbs, coffee spill, etc. It never got wiped and I eventually had to wipe... More

Looking for a vegetarian-friendly restaurant led us to Le Pain Quotidien. While the menu offers something to please everyone, we were not very impressed by our sandwiches and were shocked by the bill. 47 euros for sandwiches and tea for 2 people!

Nice place to enjoy some brunch with coffee and toasts!. They have some vegan options as a veggie toast with hummus and another with try tomatoes; you just need to ask them to remove the cheese. Cute atmosphere and decoration.

The place looks generally cozy and charming and could be a nice place to have a coffee or breakfast/brunch, but there is this terrible service and the food is overpriced and nothing special. I never been to a place where the waitress slams the food on the table without even looking at the guests. No hello, no good bye, no... More

If you are looking for a cheaper bite to eat outside of the old town of Geneva this might fit the bill. The pastry's were excellent and the coffee matched it. Very small and narrow cafe and the washroom is down a very narrow stairway. Therefore this is not a good cafe for those with mobility issues. Our server was... More

We went there this morning and had a healthy, tasty, filling breakfast with a variety of bread, marmelade and spreads plus croissants, freshly squeezed orange juice and cappuccino! All that fo 15 swiss francs, a little less than fifteen euros, per person.

I always try to see the positive side of thing but what can I say about this place but a complete disappointment. Smudgy spoons, plates and tables (the tea spoon still had honey stuck to it) and all jars full of stains on top of that the place smells like blue cheese. We ordered their breakfast, the waiter brought us... More

Le Pain Quotidien doesn't need a large comments on the place itself since it is a well known franchise around the globe, all the places are the same , cozy and with a nice atmosphere with a nice deco. We came in on Sunday morning to try out their à la carte Brunch ( 3 different options ) and I... More

The place look nice. Choice of 4 or 5 type of sandwiches. I tried the chicken guacamole sandwich and took one espresso. The sandwich bread was not fresh and crispy. It took humidity from guacamole. The taste was good. The espresso was served in a bowl and was almost cold. Had to ask 3 times for my sandwich. Staff chit... More

Nice place if you like either brunches or eating a quick quiche, toasted sandwiches or soup at lunchtime. you may have to share the table with other people when it gets busy but nowadays it is unlikely as many other eating options abound around this place. This is part of a chain (there is another Pain quotidien in Champel near... More
