LPQ Canary Wharf Opens in London

Posted on Company News, November 1st, 2013


On November 1, 2013, Le Pain Quotidien proudly opened its 24th location in the Canary Wharf district of London.

Located in Tower Hamlets, on the West India Docks, Canary Wharf was once one of the busiest ports in the world. In the 1930s, Fruit Lines Ltd, who traded in the Mediterranean and Canary Islands, requested that berth No. 32 be renamed Canary Wharf. Today, the area is one of two main financial centres of London and home to many of the UK’s tallest buildings, including One Canada Square.

Our newest LPQ is located in a sparkling new building within Jubilee Place, serving this bustling business district with over 100,000 financial service workers. Bringing a taste of the old world to the area’s newness, LPQ Canary Wharf features a beautiful hand-laid mosaic on the entrance floor, tin tiles on the ceiling and old mirrored arched windows on the walls.

Perhaps one of the most interesting features of our store is the full size French racing boat hung on the back wall. In addition to booth and bench seating, our design team has added a cozy library corner with soft armchair seating. The shelves surrounding this quiet nook are filled with cooking and lifestyle books as well as a selection of our retail items. The result of these features is another beautiful and unique Le Pain Quotidien in a brand new community!
