Here, daily bread represents much more than mere sustenance. It is a way of life, a symbol of unity around a communal table, of the tradition of breaking bread, of the murmur of conversation and of the jams that pass from hand to hand. The simplicity of organic stone-ground wheat flour, sea salt, water and sourdough are the humble beginning, which is then patiently kneaded and baked by expert bakers into timeless loaves. That is the starting point of Le Pain Quotidien, where everything is made with dedication, craftsmanship and noble ingredients. The Belgian Warm Waffle is one of the stars of the menu. Comes with choice of honey, dulce de leche or jam. What topping you can choose between fresh seasonal fruits, chocolate sauce or a combination of both.
