There are so many places to sit and have a wonderful latte in New York City but this one is just a real fave of mine. Le Pain Quotidien is just a great, great place for breakfast, lunch or even a light dinner. They have locations all over the world - Canada, France, Germany, Russia, Japan, Spain and United Kingdom - just to name a few. I love the communal tables in all the cafe's.
Here is some history from their website: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".
