Little character there

  • Mar 10, 2010

I stopped by the one in Clarendon for a nosh and espresso. The place was almost empty, and devoid of any atmosphere as well.  I just wanted to buy my pastry and coffee and take it to a table-- but NO -- you have to be WAITED on --  and spend more money.

So I left.

What did you think of this review?

Fun to Read

I love Le Pain Quo, as my friends and I call it. Their breads and baked goods are spectacular, and their wide selection of tartines (cold open-face sandwiches) served with cornichons (small pickles) are to die for!     They've got some huge tables, which encourages you to sit with people you may not know and strike up a conversation that may lead to new friends. In addition, Pain Quo has great service, and their prices are pretty reasonable. I guess eating here makes me remember …

About this restaurant


from website: http://www.painquotidien.com/

What he wanted was so simple: bread, hearty and wholesome, with a firm slice and a good crust.

Alain Coumont learned about bread as a small child, standing on a chair every Sunday watching his grandmother bake bread. As a young chef in Brussels, Alain could not find the right bread for his restaurant.

Passionate about quality, he returned to his roots and opened a small bakery where he could knead flour, salt and water into the rustic loaves of his childhood.

He called his bakery “Le Pain Quotidien".
