Although Le Pain Quotidien is located in Naperville on South Washington Street, I felt like I was walking into a small cafe in Europe. Alain Coumont, the founder, inherited his love of baking from his family in Leige, Belgium. He brought this art to Naperville. Le Pain Quotidien means the daily bread in Dutch.


They serve breakfast, lunch or dinner - or you can visit the bakery counter to take home organic, homemade bread and artisanal pastries. The restaurant draws inspiration from Moser Tower’s Millennium Carillon, lending features like reclaimed Belgian bells to the design of the space and our outdoor patio seating features sculptures from a local artist.

The menu consists of good food, made from quality ingredients. On our visit, my daughter and I were greeted by the friendly staff, quickly seated and given our coffee and cappuccino. Coffee was so smooth that I didn’t have to add sugar as I usually do. I tried the Smoked Salmon Breakfast. It was tasty, healthy and fresh. My daughter had the granola parfait with the ham and cheese croissant sandwich. A neighboring table had the delicious-looking Dutch pancakes that I will try on our next visit.

All the food tasted fresh and delicious. The only drawback was it was that it was on the pricier side for breakfast. They also offer holiday parties, rehearsal dinners, brunches, and baking classes.


If you want to get away to a taste of Europe, take the short walk to Naperville’s Le Pain Quotidien. I will definitely be back.
