Global bakery-restaurant chain Le Pain Quotidien has opened a site in Dublin’s Molesworth Street.

The latest addition to the Brussels-founded chain, and the firm’s second site in Ireland, opened to customers on 10 May.

The firm’s organic bread — made from its home-brewed levain — will also be sold in-store, as well as its array of vegan bakes.

Le Pain Quotidien Dublin will be serving the café’s new spring menu, including vegan dishes such as its maple quinoa porridge and spring tartine.

The latest site covers over 243sq m and can cater for up to 104 diners. The interiors and fittings have been sourced from reclaimed materials, while the furniture — including communal dining tables — is handmade from recycled timber.
