Le Pain Quotidien serves simple, elegant boulangerie fare made with organic ingredients whenever possible: breakfast, tartines, pastries and handmade organic bread & many vegan and vegetarian options. 

Established in 1990, as a child in Belgium, Alain Coumont spent countless hours perched on a chair, watching his grandmother make bread. But as a young chef in Brussels, he 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. Le Pain Quotidien opened on October 26, 1990 on rue Antoine Dansaert in Brussels. The city quickly took to the taste of this traditional bread and Alain evolved his offering to include simple salads and tartines, keeping bread the cornerstone of the menu. At a local flea market, Alain found a long table where his guests could sit to eat together; it became Le Pain Quotidien's first communal table.

I took this class before and absolutely loved it however this experience was not my favorite. The women seemed to be pretty impatient and a bit rude. Plus there were very limited options on toppings which was a little annoying.

Took my boyfriend here for his birthday and had a fantastic time! Dawn was a wonderful teacher and the class was informative and fun! No shortage of laughs and great memories were made. Had a blast learning about different doughs and techniques and everything turned out delicious in the end! Loved that we were able to take home treats we made - however it was more a free for all when we chose items to take home, rather than what you baked. We had to hunt for what we baked specifically. Would highly recommend!
