Few weeks ago, Jodi wanted to attend the open house at The New York Academy of Art in Tribeca. As it was at 12pm, we needed to find a place close that opened early enough so we would have time to have a meal. I proposed to go to Le Pain Quotidien as it is one of my favorite places and I know that it is open early. That is how we ended up at Le Pain Quotidien on Chambers Street.
The decor there is no surprise as all the restaurants of this franchise are the same: artisanal look with wood all other, from the floor to the tables and shelves, as well as the large communal table in the middle.
It was served with some jam and fresh cream. It was good, but not the best waffle I ever had, being more like a cake, on the heavier side and with no need for the jam that was a bit too sweet.
Then, we shared the assiette de fromages:
Local Camembert and Fourme d’Ambert (left):
Aged Vermont goat cheese:
There was also a fig compote and some of their artisanal breads made with raisins:
If you like cheese, this is a perfect spot for it: good price and good quality cheese, served with an assortment of organic breads:
We also ate the bread with some butter or better, some hazelnut chocolate spread that is similar to Nutella, but even better: you taste more the hazelnut and it is much less sweet.
With the meal, I got my double espresso (nice quantity):
And Jodi some tea:
Le Pain Quotidien is a great spot for breakfast or brunch, serving some delicious food in a rustic atmosphere. Their menu proposes a wide variety of dishes that would satisfy any palate, not just focussing on breakfast items. It is definitely a good franchise to remember.
Enjoy (I did)!
