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.

Outstanding and fun class. The instructor was so knowledgable and was able to answer all of our questions. And I got to take home soooo many baguettes and other products from the class.

The Artisan Pizza Making Class was a nice and informative experience. Chef Dawn is very knowledgeable about pizza making, and since the other two participants did not attend the class, I had a private class! I was encouraged to ask questions and the atmosphere was casual and fun. I made a tasty pizza and took home dough, sauce, and instructions for how to make some pizzas at home. I did not expect a dessert pizza as an added bonus! I would recommend this class to anyone who loves pizza and wants to learn the basics.

Chef Dawn was an exceptional teacher. She has a calm and commanding presence which sets the tone for the class. Chef conveyed information with clarity, conviction, and encouragement; she checked in regularly whether anything remained unclear and/or if there were any questions. It was an excellent experience.

THIS IS NOT A COOKING CLASS!!! Everyone in this “class” showed up including myself and my girlfriend expecting to learn how to bake, but turned out to be a 5+ course brunch meal and the most expensive brunch I ever paid for in my life for 2 people. Food was on point though.

This class was incredibly misleading and did not include cooking or baking of any kind. The staff at Le Pain Quotidien offered another class at the price of 2 for 1, but I do not want to pay more money. The situation was absolutely ridiculous and I really want a portion of my money back.

I really enjoyed the Le Pain Quotidien bread baking class. Our instructor was very good but she did repeat herself quite a lot - over and over with the exact same phrasing which did try on us given the class is 3 hours. I would advise that she mix it up with her wording to be more effective.
