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??? I had a rather pedestrian, small slice of a bland frittata that was served with two slices of bread and a cup of coffee... The cost for... More

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.

If you're looking for something featuring primarily organic and local food, this is the spot. I've been here for breakfast and lunch. Don't know if they serve dinner or not. I love it here as I don't have to worry about that extra serving of pesticides and GMO's with my breakfast or lunch. Eggs, yogurt, oatmeal, salads, pancakes, coffee, etc.... More

We found this the 1st day and went back twice. Coffee excellent in bowls (very Belgian) great Pain au Raisins - not doughy like raisin Danish but light and flaky like a croissant.

While we were in DC recently we'd stop by Le Pain Quotidien on P street on our way back to the apartment after a day of exploring the city. We'd typically have a glass of wine and a cheese plate or one of their other small plates. The food was always good as was the service. We look forward to... More

Had dinner and then breakfast here during our trip. The food was well prepared and the service was ok. I enjoyed the new flavor combinations. We sat outside on the patio which was good for sunshine and people watching.

So looking forward to eating here as it has everything we liked to eat but unfortunately our waitress made it a chore for us. I don't think she had the ability to smile.
