Pain or baked on site. Even if you just need a quick snack, you’ve come to the right place. Since February, the shop has had a pick-up window that lets customers grab a coffee or croissant to go which they can consume while window shopping. This chain now has five shops in the Rhine-Main area. Owner Bernd Steiner, who just acquired the group in early 2014, wants to create spaces that give customers the im- pression of being on a short holiday in France and plans to open other shops soon throughout Germany. He con- siders the Maison du Pain in the MTZ to be a true flagship shop featuring a special kind of French flair: rustic furni- ture made of solid wood, stained oak floors and crystal chandeliers lend the restaurant a cosy atmosphere, and French songs can be heard in the background. Guests can also relax on the shop’s own terrace in summer. The friendly staff look extremely authentic in their chef’s hats. And the icing on the cake is the unmistakable scent ema- nating from the ovens – one you would really only expect to find in a country bakery in southern France. Guests will find croissants, beignets, pains au chocolat, petits fours, warm and cold tartines, filled baguettes, deli- cious soups, hearty quiches and salads. Choosing between them isn’t always easy, regardless of whether you are looking for break- fast, lunch or an evening snack. Baked using original French recipes, these specialities are offered fresh all day long and are produced exclusively for La Maison du G The specialities are produced exclusively for La Maison du Pain or baked on site.
