le pain quotidien

These adorable cafes & bakeries should exist in every city in the country. The food is good: tartines bubbling with melted, aged gruyere and smeared with homemade hummus, satisfying salads tossed with smoked salmon, grated parmesan, and toasted pine nuts, soups served with slices of freshly-made bread, pastries filled with rich cheeses and sugary fruits. Nothing will blow your mind, but that isn't the point: come for a quick, easy and relatively inexpensive lunch or dinner, and you'll always leave happy. The atmosphere is appealing - all the furniture is made from reclaimed wood - and virtually everything on the menu is guilt-free. Even better, because they're scattered all over the city, these cafes are a great option when you can't or don't have the energy to come up with somewhere new. Great place to meet for lunch or coffee during the week.
