Le Pain Quotidien

This European boulangerie chain with restaurants worldwide has a surprising range of vegan offerings.

Breakfasters in both the UK and US will enjoy the Organic Baker’s Basket, blueberry muffins and Avocado Toast, and there are some tasty breakfast bowls to choose from, too. Those coming later in the day will find a Lentil & Avocado Salad and a Chilli.

Many more items can be made vegan if you just ask, and there are seasonal items and soups that may be vegan too – all clearly labelled on the menu. There is great news for those of us who still press our noses against the windows of Patisseries and dream – the Chocolate Cake, Apple Pie, and the Cocoa & Pear Cake are vegan.

Le Pain Quotidien state:

These days, we are all aware of the benefits of a plant-based diet. Not only is eating less meat better for us, it’s good for the planet. Le Pain Quotidien offers many vegan items that are labeled 100% botanical on our menus. All of our organic breads are vegan, except for Challah. Some of our most popular vegan dishes are the Omega-3 Tartine, Quinoa Taboulé Salad, Six-Vegetable Quiche and Chia Seed Pudding.
