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. Her manner was off hand and to top it all, we had to wait a full hour for our breakfast to finally arrive after ordering. This was... More

This is a really nice little restaurant/café if you are after a lighter meal. The food is excellent, we ordered sandwiches and they were a good size and very tasty, and were ideal for us as a family. The service was excellent and the staff were very nice and chatty. The restaurant itself is located just off Dupont Circle so... More

Tasty and wholesome. The tartines are very good, with fresh ingredients and homemade bread. We sat outside with our dogs and the provided water for them without us even asking. Service was at a nice pace and friendly.

Food was average but not worth the extra money. Portion size was small. Staff took your order but never checked if food was okay

Went for breakfast with my family in July. Not the quickest service and it's on the expensive side, but everything we had was very good, especially the omelette - don't know what made it so good, but it was honestly the most delicious omelette I ever had!! Unfortunately we "discovered" this place on our last morning in Washington, otherwise we... More
