Who We Are

After stumbling accidentally into a bakery as a youth in Evreux, a small city just 60 miles north of Paris, Le Pain du Jour ...founder Franck Herve Commereuc discovered his love for the art of baking bread. Franck went on to train at some of the most prestigious boulangeries throughout France before making the bold decision to bring his authentic craft to California in the early 1990s. To this day, the Le Pain du Jour philosophy remains the same: bake bread the traditional way! The artisans at Le Pain du Jour continue to honor this philosophy daily, maintaining an unsurpassed commitment for quality and authenticity unseen in most bakery concepts. This has allowed Le Pain du Jour’s uniqueness to showcase some of the best artisan breads and pastries in Los Angeles.

Le Pain du Jour is dedicated to using only the highest quality natural ingredients with no additives or preservatives. Our commitment assuring that your bread is baked fresh daily has earned us a loyal customer following, both wholesale and retail.

So we invite you to come in and allow your senses to be invigorated with our line of delicious flaky viennoisserie, our specialty trois saison bread or our signature baguette that "sings"! Together, we can create a symphony from our bakery to your table!
