Very few places in Brussels to find real good bred. You can eat there, beautiful large room, but you also, as i do, come just to buy your everyday bred. Large choice, countrybred, french baguette, try the Pain au ancien blé, with fantastic traditional taste!

The food was the usual, what you would expect. However, the table service was awful. Very poor quality, knives & forks just thrown on the table, we had to wait a long time for out drinks. The waitress seemed really uninterested.

We just has eaten two time a breakfast but the coffee quality was a same level than Hungary. (The brusseles coffee quslity is almost bad.) The waiters were very quick, helpful and polite. The food is exciting with a lot of new idea.

This is a perfect place where to stop for breakfast or lunch or even for coffee. Healthy food and excellent deserts. Highly recommended.

It's just like every other Le Pain in the world. Tasty but a bit overpriced. Service wasn't the best. He seemed frustrated with our English and with our French.

This question isn't really for me. I just eat there. I suggest you email PQ direct, but wouldn't it be stale by the time it travelled from Belgium to the USA?!

It's found in Paris and New York, but this internationally renowned bakery is a Belgian invention, and many folks admit that this is still the best bread in the city. In truth, it's not just a bakery, but also a patisserie, delicatessen, snack bar and coffee house. Their farmers' bread is still baked by artisans. This shop (as well as its 10 other Brussels locations) has a provincial atmosphere, decorated with pine furniture and cream-coloured walls. The menu includes a selection of open sandwiches (try the typical cheese platter with radish and onions), salads and tarts.
