Description: Our bread is made today exactly as it was in the beginning: with only organic stone-ground flour, salt, and water, kneaded and shaped by hand and baked in a hearth under the watchful eye of artisan bakers.We insist on the freshest and finest ingredients. If we can't find them, we make them ourselves.Our shelves are lined with the products we've created: the jams and chocolate spreads on the communal table, the granola in your parfait, the coffee that fills your bowl.

“Great for breakfast and lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

Delicious breakfast breads, croissants and tarts, omelettes and granola,coffees, espressos and teas, wines and beers, lunch salads and tartines (open faced sandwiches) and wonderful sharing platters. What more could you want? Service, that's what. And they deliver in spades with attractive friendly young women and men who seem to delight in their jobs. Although this is a chain, you wouldn't know it. It has the look and feel of a neighborhood bistro and it's full of neighborhood people. A great place for breakfast or lunch. Delighted to find out there are five of these in the Washington DC area. I wonder if they can match the Dutch for great atmosphere and food?

“Wonderful coffe shop.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

Everything you see here (almost) you can buy; the plates, the ingredients and of course coffé and goodies etc. Place both inside and outside and a second floor with stairs for more people.

“Love this chain, but....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Always look forward to visiting one of Le Pains outlets, this was no different until whilst eating I saw a waitress wiping the large jars of jams etc with a wet cloth. The same cloth used for several jars, wiping right down to the level of the contents. Has she had any health and hygiene training?? Actually made me shiver with disgust.
