Le Pain Quotidien
81 W. Broadway
(at Warren)
American (Traditional), Bakery/Coffee

This outpost of the Belgian-based café chain is a pleasant setting, with big windows overlooking W. Broadway and Warren. The menu of salads, open-faced sandwiches, and so on is mainly organic and somewhat health-focused (well, not the baked goods). It’s a handy spot for breakfast or a coffee meeting in that you can reliably get a seat; on weekends, families swarm in. There’s another LPQ in northern Battery Park City.
