We had a delicious and nutritious breakfast here yesterday! This place is excellent for large groups we were all able to sit together. The coffee iand bread are delish. I had the avocado and tomato omelette which comes with a salad and bread. Everything was delicious and the wait staff was very friendly and accommodating.

All you'd expect from a PQ, but in Washington DC. We ate there every day, staying at the nearby Palomar.

Having a boiled egg at Le Pain Quotidien. I requested cooked white and soft yolk. They provided bread soldiers to dip into the yolk. The egg was served upside down and when I turned it over I found out why: it had cracked badly leaving a gaping hole through which much of the egg had departed and a significant amount... More

Great food and selection. Bread is WONDERFUL. Coffee in a bowl? Ended up loving that too! Great service, nice sunny space for breakfast. All around - a very pleasant experience.

As the cafe was located a block away from our hotel and because we enjoyed breakfast there so much on our first morning, we decided to eat there every morning of our five day visit. Staff were helpful and friendly and there was enough variety for us to enjoy our breakfast every day. Fresh ingredients and excellent coffee kept us... More

Great people watching, very decent food in a pleasant atmosphere. You can eat and go or lounge around for a long time. I recommend the latter.

Their coffee, bread, omelets and jellies and chocolate spreads are the best. I make it a point to go here whenever I stay at the Palomar -- a nice walk in the morning, and close to the hotel.
