Le Pain Quotidien - Walnut Street, Philadelphia
I was happy to return to Le Pain Quotidien. I visited a location in New York City and enjoyed a fantastic breakfast in their dining room. This time I visited the bakery to-go counter at this location in Philadelphia on Walnut Street in Rittenhouse Row.
The restaurant itself had the cozy feel of country inn like its sites restaurants but I had to run to be sure I made my evening plans. The best part of my menu choices was the granola yogurt parfait topped with fruit ($5.50) which was creamy and refreshing. I read that the cheese muffin ($2.60) was like eating a quiche but it lacked flavor and was rather dry and would be much better with a generous dollop of butter. An iced cappuccino ($4.30) completed the meal.
