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??? 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.
