Restaurant Review for Breakfast at Le Pain Quotidien - Buenos Aires

I’m no “free range only, give me only organic” fanatic, but even I can appreciate a restaurant that places quality, healthy ingredients, freshly prepared at the top of the priority list. The more you visit Le Pain Quotidien, the more comfortable you become with the execution of the creative menu, regardless of which location you visit. Check out the history of the international chain of restaurants in our full review.

I was, of course, excited to see eggs on the menu at Le Pain Quotidien. Free range eggs at that. Nothing better than an egg that has been given plenty of space to develop. Joking aside, it’s common knowledge that hens that are given a little room to ruffle their feathers lay better tasting eggs and it shows at LPQ.

On the first visit I ordered the poached egg on country bread with a little sprinkling of micro-greens on the side. All very healthy but that bread could have used a little butter and a few minutes face down in a cast iron pan. But just to have had the poached egg was a treat.

On my next visit to Le Pain Quotidien I threw a curve ball at the waiter. I played the same trick I did on the staff at Oui Oui in Palermo. I ordered the ham and cheese croissant with a poached egg on the side. This egg sandwich is something I merely call “the Gringo”. The only problem is that it came out on the tiny little plate they serve the sandwich on that had no edges to catch the oozing yolk of the poached egg. My next curve ball will be to request a regular plate. This may totally confuse the brigade of cooks and waiters. I’ll update you on the results in a future post.

If eggs aren’t eggsactly your cup of tea, don’t fret. Try the French toast or a small Beglian waffle for something a bit sweeter than a poached egg.

Service is up to snuff, but could be better. Ambiance is beyond good. They even have a website that is informative and compelling.

They also have a lunch and dinner menu, featuring quiche, tartines (sandwiches missing the top piece of bread), imaginative salads, and a host of interesting tapas-like small plates. You can read our full review, featuring lunch and dinner items, here.

If you’re staying at the Alvear Palace Hotel, The Four Seasons, the Park Hyatt or any one of the dozens of hotels within a few blocks and want a casual and pleasant place to sip on a good cup of coffee, have a nice breakfast or afternoon coffee or tea break, you won’t find a better spot in Recoleta than Le Pain Quotidien on Posadas. But we’ve been to the locations at Recoleta Plaza and in Palermo Soho and they are equally impressive.
