Le Pain Quotidien

What a of the cafe: Le Pain Quotidien. The snobs will probably frown at me. I don't give a heck...whenever i am meeting friends for coffee at the Emirates's the usual: "let's meet at the bread cafe."
Apparently, it is very famous.

The origins of Le Paine Quotidien are as simple and inspirational as the products it now sells. Towards the end of the eighties, Alain Coumont, a highly regarded chef at one of Brussels' most prestigious restaurants just wasn't able to source bread worthy of his clientele and so started making it himself.
In 1990, the original Le Pain Quotidien stores opened its doors in downtown Brussels. The concept was a huge success from day one.
By 1993, there were 16 different stores in Europe. And by 1997, Alain Coumont had opened his first store in the heart of New York City.
There are now more than 60 Le Pain Quotidien stores in over 30 different cities in the world and the word is spreading.
I must admit...they have very fresh speciality breads, sandwiches, pastries..etc
