I first encountered this Belgian cafe on a Eurostar trip to Lille, and having bought one of their big glass salt grinders, was very pleased when they opened in London, so I could get the matching pepper pot! LPQ serve reliably good food and the bread is fantastic if you like chewy rustic stuff.
I had a fresh mint tea, which was wonderfully refreshing, if a bit pricey at £3 for a small pot. They serve tea in a bowl, which must be the Belgian way. I went to website to get further info, and was invited to sit at a communal table and “share the Brunette”. How very Continental!
Le Pain Quotidien have branches all over London and are a great place to take refreshment. The food is good, and the decor pleasing. St Pancras branch is an ace place to people watch and play ‘French or English’
