What's good about this chain is that it's predictable. What was not expected was to be charged take-out muffins at table prices.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner are a great treat in a great location. Near the DuPont Metro stop, this restaurant is a very comfortable place to grab a meal. The warmth of the waitstaff and perfect coffee elevate your visit. I've eaten through most of the offered meals on the menu and have not been disappointed.

Le Pain Quotidien is a very different take on the restaurant experience. Part bakery, part bistro, part cafe, dining here is somewhat akin to hanging out in someone's French kitchen while they bring you coffee, warm bread and delicious food. The atmosphere is warm, homey, comfortable. You could stay ten minutes or a couple of hours. Big wooden tables welcome... More

Around the corner from the Madera Kimpton, Le Pain provides a change in cultural experience from the norm in DC. We went for breakfast and had a pleasant experience. The Baker's Basket was huge with several kinds of bread (we ate half of it on the plane that afternoon), the Ham & Gruyere Omelet and the Oatmeal with Berries likewise... More

I would say that the food is very good, but its not quite worth the value. The prices are very high and the portions are a lighter size. The food was good, but it was priced higher than a normal breakfast place. Yes, their food is organic so that is where most of the extra cost goes. I would probably... More

If you want a taste of France, like the bad and indifferent waiters and waiting half an hr for anything to arrive, this is the place to go! Unfortunately, my mom loves the food so I am forced to take her here each time she comes to visit but I have found that it is always way overpriced, the food... More

I ate at Le Pain Quotidien several times during a recent trip to DC. It was mostly for breakfasts (omelets with mushrooms, green salads, green tea), afternoon desserts (coconut macaroons, chocolate cake) as well as green juices. Everything seemed pretty fresh, green juices are not made on the spot, but they were very tasty. Coconut macaroons are delicious, although it... More

I was meeting someone for a "business" breakfast recently. Le Pain Quotidien was located near a Metro station which made it a good place to meet. I could not believe the prices! Seriously???

We always know we'll get a good interesting meal at any Le Pain. Gluten/dairy free options abound for the missus. I had the steel cut oatmeal and it was a treat. It's just a fun place and always interesting.
