The ability of bread and bacon to improve quality of life is well known. Less sure about hot egg mayonnaise. Most importantly, “Om nom nom nom” are now my new favourite “description of enthusiastic eating” words!

8 reviews of Le Pain Du Jour in English
I discovered Pain du Jour while wondering the lovely restaurant-filled streets around my office and dispairing of the lack of wallet-friendly food. A bit of a local legend, it’s a great place to grab a panini, baguette or other bit of lunch fare much like what you’ll find in the vicinity but a lot cheaper. Decent place but a little more choice for veggies would be even better!
If you normally revert to Greggs everytime you fancy a cake or a sandwich - stop! Turn around! Head to Le Pain Du Jour Instead. Everything is under £2.50 and their ready-filled freshly baked baguettes are very popular - I recommend getting it toasted if you aren't in a rush. This place is a favourite haunt of students from the local unis though so try to avoid the lunchtime rush if you can.
Went here at lunch instead of going to Greggs further along as there was a queue outside and seemed popular....
My warm sausage roll was amazing better than Greggs even and cheaper, the service fast and friendly and the sandwiches incredibly good. Coronation baguette for just £1.70 and tasty as, thats what I call a good lunch
This place always has a queue outside the door at breakfast and lunchtime. If you want a baguette sandwich in the the Goodge Street area this is your place. It is an absolute bargain. Not much on the menu is over £2.
They also do soups (I noted this week in passing it was Correct and coriander), but it is the baguettes in the window and the queue that gets most people interested.
The bread is pretty nice, but you get what you pay for. The quality of the fillings is not the greatest, but still fabulous value for money. If you think you will be a regular here, pick up a loyalty card where you buy ten baguettes and get one free. It is great they value their loyal customers, oh and the coffee isnt bad here either!
Great bakery for a quick baguette, plentiful selection of flavours, although I recently heard that the low low prices have had a price hike since the recession became more apparent. Bit of a shame as it was part of my student staple diet. Think my choice was the all day breakfast at £1.50, with plentiful sausage, bacon, egg, tomato and the sweetest of coffees. Free wifi is also a plus.
My goodness I’m in a brilliant mood! A huge change from yesterday when after a long day at work I was being a bit of a grump. Pain du jour have made me happy.
I just thought 'maybe I’ll walk on the other side of the street to work today’ - (i know, my life is sooooo full of excitement) - and for once the place with the yummy looking sandwiches in the window didn’t have a long queue of people coming out of it.
So in I sipped for a bacon sandwich…. they were in the window tempting me!!! it’s not my fault!!!
I was a bit confused that she was going to just give me the bacon baguette cold, and she looked a bit confused that I wanted it warm. Weird.
Then I got to my desk and realised that it wasn’t just bacon (crispy and lovely and it burnt the roof of my mouth becuase i was impatient. Ouch.) .... it was actually bacon and egg mayonnaise.
Hmmm…. hot egg mayonnaise? no wonder she was looking at me weird. Well trust me when I say it’s one of the nicest things EVER! Even my friend who finished off my sandwich would agree - although he too was confused at the time. It just tastes of warm sweet gooey loveliness.
And the best bit? It was only £1.
I expect my heart attack at the end of the month after breakfast here every day from now on. Om nom nom nom!

Then you must try the hot egg mayonnaise and you too will go 'Om nom nom nom’!
This phrase is only used in the most brilliant of places…

Well was almost a trad breakfast in a bun other than the mayo but I like mayo..wouldn’t eat the bacon though :)
Siany, 4 September 2008:
but with hot mayo… it should be wrong but it’s oh so right!!!
This little red bakery on Goodge Street is a favourite haunt of mine. Their morning pastries - croissants, cheese twists, or sausage rolls - are fresh and crispy. Their lunch pasties are cheap and come in a range of flavours. Their prices are very good, and they're never too crowded.
