Many visits to get coffee and a bagel/pastry/something yummy. I like the variety, quality and freshness. Always hits the spot and wifi works well aswell so a great place to sit and get somethings taken care of on the laptop.

Many soups, sandwiches, and pastries... enjoy! Stop on your way to the Pentagon City metro station and grab breakfast, lunch or dinner. Fast friendly service. Sandwiches made to order.

The staff was rude, they were "out" of cappuccino and declared that since they would be closing soon, they were not going to fire up the machine. The pastries were stale and overpriced.

I have never heard of Au Bon Pain until now....but I will NEVER forget! The desserts here were TERRIFIC! Everything we tried was fresh and homemade! Another bonus was the price...everything we saw was reasonably priced! My family and I have already goggled and found a Au Bon Pain closer to our home in the country! Still licking my lips:}

Yummy chicken salad sandwich on homemade tasty bread, caesar chicken wrap all were excellent. My mouth is watering thing of the chocolate dipped macaroon (that gets a WOW). Delicious and affordable.

The meat was plentiful and the flavor was very good. I enjoyed this place. Expensive but good. We were in the Crystal City underground when we found this place and decided to try it. Glad we did.

I think the food is over-priced. Salad is very fresh though. Iced coffee is pretty good. Breakfast bagel is too expensive considering only a slim bagel with a little egg white and cheddar.
