From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2010
With a rustic interior of stripped pine furniture, chalkboards scrawled with specials and freshly baked breads lining the shelves, Le Pain Quotidien has a lovely country kitchen feel to it. If you’re at the Jumeirah Beach branch you can also squeeze onto an al-fresco table, if you can find an empty one. The sandwiches are scrumptious, thanks to the tendency of the French to over indulge in cheese and crusty bread. Also recommended is the hot chocolate, served in a bowl, so you are free to make like the French themselves and dunk your bread, or, even better, a buttery croissant.
