We’ve been waiting for this for quite a while. Up until now, the delicious products by Le Pain Quotidien were only available in Madrid. But now we have one Le Pain Quotidien shop on Calle Provenza, just in front of La Pedrera.


This spacious shop brims with the recipes of Alain Coumont, who founded the brand in 1990 with a shop in Brussels to serve breakfasts. The shop became a success in the Belgian capital and, inspired by his grandmother’s recipes, Coumont widened his offer with salads and tartines with bread as the basic element.

Almost 25 years later, Le Pain Quotidien arrives in Barcelona with a tasty variety of breads, tartines?typical Belgian bread slices with all kinds of toppings, including Iberian ham and Chicken curry–cakes, quiches, salads, fondues and soups. Other courses include hard semolina risotto.

Le Pain Quotidien is a perfect meeting point to enjoy breakfasts, brunches, lunch and dinner. Based on sustainability values, the shop is inspired by Belgian country houses, with furniture made with recycled wood?not a single tree has been cut for their fabrication. The lights are also based on energy efficiency values, cleaning products are environmentally friendly and the packaging is made with recycled paper. Tables are big enough to be shared with many people. We love that.

As Alain Coumont says: ?What I wanted was so simple: abundant and healthy bread with a thick slice and a thin crust.?
