I'm actually writing this review about the Brentwood location on San Vicente since City Search doesn't have it listed. I typically love this place but when my boyfriend and I went for breakfast at this new location and ordered eggs with instructions on how we would like them cooked, my "hard boiled" eggs came to me soft and my boyfriend's "soft omelette" came hard as a rock. On second attempt my boyfriend got the omelette he wanted but the kitchen and whoever was putting the order in just didn't seem to understand the meaning of a hard boiled egg. At the tail end of watching my boyfriend finish his omelette I was again served soft boiled eggs. The waitress didn't check up on us to see if everything was OK so I had to flag down the manager and ask him to take my portion of the meal off of the bill. Of course they did, but I felt their response was casual and insensitive as they said I'm sorry we can't get it right 2x..maybe you should order something else. I will not return to this location again. How difficult can it be to boil an egg?

RUDE, RUDE, RUDE!!!!!!!!! – I called this place to make a reservation, which I understand they don't take, but the manager, had the nerve to discourage my business. She basically told me that they don't want to lose money with a large group!!!! Usually restaurants make more money with large groups!!!! No business etiquette. I'm a business owner myself and if I start refusing business to people, I'm the one that'll be in the hole!!! The manager needs to be brushed up on her business etiquette skills!

Surprisingly Scrumptious and Fresh – My partner brought home a fantastic meal from this restaurant one day. He usually brings home really gross, flavorless organic food that sounds a lot better than it tastes. The meal from Le Pain was one of the best I've had in a while...a delicious, complex tasting goat cheese and nut arugula salad with a strong vinagrette dressing, a fresh made sandwich with homemade bread, fresh sliced ham and cheese, (gasp!) a fresh tomato, and some home made mustard that really brought everything together. Then we had a chocolate bomb that was spectacular. Usually with desserts you see in a bakery case, they look great and taste awful. This was melt in your mouth heaven. We fought over it! I can't say much about the ambience there, but the food (for those of you who do takeout) was top notch. Lots of restaurants have the pretense in their menus, but the food doesn't live up to it. They really made an effort with this meal to put their money where my mouth is!

good, but busy – My husband and I have breakfast there once in a while. Really good bread selection. The soups are great too. But it is sometimes too busy.

simple and satisfying; my new fave spot – I love everything about this place: attentive servers, delicious and healthy food, plus indulgent desserts. And for imported food, the prices are reasonable. I got the grilled chicken sandwich with pesto and I had some of my friend's Prosciutto sandwich followed by a chocolate croissant and a huge French donut--all wonderful. They also have fantastic jam and hazelnut spread (think Nutella, without the cocoa)--we ate these straight out the jar they were so good.

The appearance of the place is wonderful for a nice lunch with friends. They have a long wooden "communal" table in the middle of the restaurant plus some nice spots outside.

Belgian-based chain boasts homemade cafe fare served in a European-countryside setting. – In Short
Light and airy as a farmhouse the restaurant's simple decor and pine furnishings radiate rustic ambience. Sophisticates gather at a long communal table, while couples sneak away to private seats in the back. The menu features salads, soups and house-specialty tartines (open-face sandwiches) with fillings like imported French ham, duck pâté, Gruyere cheese and Scottish smoked salmon. There are also colorful fruit tarts that pair well with a two-fisted mug of coffee.
