We visited this restaurant for breakfast as it was just along the street from our hotel. We had checked the menu beforehand and arrived about 8ish. It was already busy and there were two members of staff seeing to the customers. We did wait a while and had too ask for menus but it was buzzing and had a good... More

We enjoyed our breakfast here. Food was good and nice ambience. Plenty of choice and different than usual US breakfast. Staff were very friendly. Thought it was slightly overpriced. We sat at the large communal table which was ok but do prefer a table to ourselves.

Delicious coffee, fresh food, good value. This is how we eat at home, so it was a refuge from typical restaurant faire. We went twice during our 4-day stay because it was too good to pass up!

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.
