A fantastic meeting spot for breakfast and lunch, this communal feel bakery has a display case of delectables and a vegan friendly menu. (The restaurant is also conscientious of allergies.) The menu also boasts a lovely selection of coffee, teas and beverages.
Breakfast was delicious, the Avocado & Tomato Omelette (pictured above) had a mole type sauce on top that was a wonderful accent. The breakfast special frittata was served more like a quiche making it fluffy and flavorful.
The rustic yet very clean and architecturally pleasing design of the restaurant lends to the warm and welcoming atmosphere. The wait staff is helpful, attentive and accommodating while also allowing for patrons to dwell and dine at leisure.
Known for their breads, Le Pain Quotidien says that, “Unlike most commercial bakeries, Le Pain Quotidien uses no additives, preservatives, or improvers during our bread making process. To create our signature breads, we use levain, a natural rising agent made from a sourdough starter, water and salt. Using levain rather than yeast produces breads with a rich aroma and sound structure.” The resulting flavor and freshness are worth the visit.
Le Pain Quotidien also offers bakery classes.

Restaurant Review by @LifeofaRockStar
The Wynn hotel in Las Vegas is nothing short of spectacular. We love the adult message right at the front door of the shopping entrance that says, “No strollers allowed.” Indeed, the rock star shopping waiting within at the Wynn hotel is not child’s play. From Dior to Chanel, the boutiques are all high end and boast the most elegant styles and latest fashion. Highlights of the Las Vegas resort include the breathtaking garden, the gorgeous french bar just outside the steakhouse and the exclusive SW Steakhouse restaurant itself. It is fine dining with a whimsical approach. The food is cuisine worthy of the restaurant’s exclusivity and the AAA Four Diamond Award.
SONG OF THE WEEK:
Song of the Week
September 6, 2012
Train “Drive By”
It’s so up beat this song tricks you into thinking that all one night stands have a happy ending. (Wait! They don’t?) Very pop punk and comical in its lyrical style, Train released “Drive By” in January of this year. Every time the lyrics, “There's nothing up my sleeve but love for you - And a little time to get my head together too,” are sung out the cleverness of this song strikes. It’s always a welcome play on the radio or iPod playlist and has listeners bopping and singing along, “Oh I swear to you!” Video and more ---> SONG OF THE WEEK
