Delicious bakery

Delicious decaf oat milk flat white. To eat I had the vegan brunch which I shared with my daughter. So glad I did as it was massive! The smashed avocado on toast was my favourite bit but the hummus was also so creamy. My daughter loved the soya yogurt and the hibiscus croissant was incredible.

Only annoying thing was they gave us dairy butter to have with the bread which was a bit silly as it was supposed to be the vegan brunch. I'm sure it was an honest mistake that they would've resolved if I had mentioned it.

They were very accommodating of our 20 month old and gave her colouring in to do and a glass to drink her almond drink out of even though we didn't buy the drink there.

Pros: Vegan options clearly labelled, Child friendly, Beautiful setting and area

Cons: Bit expensive

awesome toast

I've been to pain Quotidien in Belgium and they had more offer than here in Amsterdam.
I still really like their dishes. i took once again the avocado toast, since i'm not a "sweet tooth" in the morning. i saw however that they had vegan granola with yoghurt, a vegan chocolate croissant, etc.
their staff was also really friendly and helpful.
i was really sad to hear that they took their chai latte from their menu. they however gave me regular chai tea and soy milk separately.

Pros: lots of avocado, vegan yoghurt, nice outdoor seating

Cons: no chai latte

I love Le Pain Quotidien’s avocado toast, especially when I tried out the delicious glutenfree bread option. My friend had the pitaya smoothie bowl; it’s already expensive, but then you have to pay even extra for the vegan coconut yoghurt version. The smoothie bowl was ridiculously small, with also a very little amount of granola and fruit. This made me decide to not come back again. It’s nice to try their food for once or twice, but in the end it’s way too expensive for what you get, and most of it I can make myself..... 3 stars because their food tastes good

Pros: Good tasting food

Cons: Very expensive for what you get

yummy but very very overpriced

I had delicious bread and soup here and had to mortgage the house to pay for it. Ridiculous

Nice drinks, food a bit bland

This is the fourth of this chain I have visited so far, and is in my opinion, neither the best or the worst. It's helpful to have vegan options clearly marked (with a carrot), but the experience is ruined when the staff are not so friendly and seem to rush customers out.

I had a homemade mint lemonade, which was really fresh which lots of flavour and to be honest the highlight, a glass of wine, and split the mezze plateau and a quinoa salad with my companion. The plateau is a good idea, meaning that customers can choose four patés/spreads to go with bread - we went for hummus, black-bean hummus, aubergine and artichoke spread, but the portion sizes are quite small and there was not enough bread. Luckily it's possible to order extra bread. The salad, with quinoa, courgettes and hummus, was nice, but rather bland.

Overall, this isn't a bad place, but there are better options for service, flavour and value-for-money in Amsterdam.

Pros: labels vegan

Cons: not fully veg

We kept passing this place and thinking the neighbourhood looked nice, so decided to stop there for brunch. I chose the banana & soy yoghurt breakfast dish which came with something called "crunola". I thought it would be like crunchy granola, it appeared to actually just be a sprinkling of seeds, on a big dish of plain yoghurt, with two bits of banana and a scattering of blueberries, which was a bit disappointing. All the vegan options looked to be catering to the "health" crowd, whereas I would really have liked a choice to get something a bit more hefty!

My boyfriend, who is vegetarian, had the Belgian waffle with fruit and cream topping. He said the waffle itself was good, but the topping could have been better(though this did come the day after he had a waffle topped with jam and shaved white chocolate!).

The service was relatively quick and competent, although pretty disinterested. The stairs to the toilet were very steep! Not really a disabled-friendly venue, although there was a ramp leading up to the quite crowded indoor seating area, which I imagine would be a help to those with pushchairs.

Pros: Several vegan options, Clearly marked veg*n options, Choice of languages for menus

Cons: Vegan options not very exciting
