Le Pain Quotidien

Posted by Bruxelles la Belle on March 26, 2012 in City Centre, Coffee, Eat, Etterbeek, Ixelles, Uccle |

A Brussels chain eatery to be proud of! What started about twenty years ago with a small bread shop in Rue Dansaert, grew into an international chain business with shops all over Europe, the United States and Australia.

Le Pain Quotidien’s core business is bread: big round breads that take up to 8 hours to make and bake. Gradually the shop added all sorts of sweet breakfast rolls to its assortment, as well as jams and chocolate spreads (most of them made from organic produce).

Big wooden tables that seat up to 10 people, artisanal bread and great coffee. See how this concept had everything it needed to become a success?

Over the years, lots of things were added to the menu. LPQ (as it’s often called in other countries, because the pronunciation isn’t easy) also has sandwiches for lunch, and sells all sorts of olive oils, sweeties, cordials etc for you to create a yummy breakfast/lunch at home.

It’s hard to pick my favourite item of the menu. For some reason, LPQ is the only place where I order a cappuccino instead of a regular coffee. Don’t ask why, because I really don’t know.
