    Company Information
    Le Pain Quotidien means the daily bread. And to us, that means everything. It's much more than mere sustenance; it's a way of life. As our loaves emerge from the ovens, warm and fragrant, friends gather around our communal tables to share in the time-honored tradition of breaking bread. The hum of conversation fills the air, jam is passed around the table, and, ever so gracefully, time slows. Our menu celebrates the simplicity of fresh, nourishing food. From morning to evening, there's always a new favorite for you to discover.
