Le Pain Quotidien: The Rocks Review

Sydney
127 George Street, The Rocks

Le Pain Quotidien is a French bakery/eatery chain and, depending on which you go to, can get very mixed reviews. The Rocks location (one of the better Sydney outlets) doesn’t feel like a chain store; it’s in a quaint old building with several rooms, all boasting a homely feel with an abundance of antique-style pine furniture. The cabinets displaying pastries and bread are scattered and, on weekday mornings at least, it’s quiet. It makes a pretty good setting for peaceful breakfast.

The coffee is served out of a small bowl rather than a mug, which is novel and easier to manoeuvre than it may sound. It’s rich, smooth and definitely not burnt.

Along with my coffee, I got an almond Danish. It was nice, soft, with a good texture and delicate flavour.

All in all, I highly recommend it here.

Atmosphere 5/5
