Le Pain Quotidien, Bondi Junction
A simple french cafe that specialises in organic breads made with organic flour, seeds, nuts, grains and raisins. What i love most is their buttery flaky croissants.. and because i’m a Bondi local, its convenient for me buy my croissants from here rather than driving to La Renaissance.
Saturday, (M) and I hadn’t eaten anything all day so we decided to sit for a brief soy latte and a buttery french croissant. Le Pain tends to be our hang out when we to grab something quick so we can focus on important things like retail therapy. (I LOVE SHOPPING!)
what the hell? is that a big…
A kid sitting near me was struggling to eating a big flat gigantic thing. Amazed at how big it was over powering the the child’s head, I couldn’t help myself but flag the waiter asking him what she was eating..
Me: “Excuse me what is that massive thing that kid eating?”
Dude: “It’s a big chocolate chip cookie and it’s only $3.50!”
Without hesitation I told him to hit me up butter cup and doggy bag it ! There was no way i was going to eat that for breakfast. If i ate it, I doubt I’d be able to fit into the clothes I was going to try on . Last time i saw a massive cookie was at the high school canteen does anyone remember those??? (I doubt they exist anymore).
Sharing is caring..
I’m not too sure what everyone’s thoughts about communal sharing, I was a bit hesitant at first thinking some looser could have spat in it and stirred it… i’m just a paranoid freak.
Communal Belgian praline chocolate spreads
Located on each table is the most adorable spread stand which contains 3 flavours to choose for spreading on your organic breads (dark chocolate, milk chocolate, white chocolate)
Communal organic jams
3 flavours to choose from. (apricot, raspberry, 4 fruit jam)
Plain butter croissant – I only come here for their croissants /pastries
Totally in love with their porcelain cheese platter style plates.. fancy way to serve up a $4 croissant. What I love about their croissant is its buttery, flaky and fresh. Crunchy layers on the outside, soft and fluffy in the middle. Goes down with any coffee or even ham and cheese wedged between and toasted
Chocolate croissant - I LOVE YOU!
Because I love my chocolate too much, I’m always one who wishes chocolate croissants were packed with a shit-load of chocolate instead of two thin strips. If i was to make a croissant, i can tell you mine would be oozing with chocolate haha!
Organic soft boiled eggs with organic bread
Eggs and good bread.. can’t go wrong unless the egg is cooked right through. Perfect for the start to the day.
Organic bread basket
Contains butter, with various selection of beads. This dish is for using the communal spreads of your choice Their apricot jam is bomb-ass good!
Breakfast ain’t breakfast without the..
English Breakfast Tea
I love their tea bags. Its actually really fancy tea-leaves packed in pyramid shaped teabag. The texture of the teabag is so durable it almost feels like material.
I need you!
I like to start my mornings with a good cuppa coffee… “soy please!” Is it me or are “chinese bowl” style cups (zero handles) seem to be the in cups at the moment?
Who would have thought a loaf of bread would come in handy?? I love how the tables have bread stands to clip and hold menus together! intelligent I tell ya!
