I came here a few months ago and had a bad experience trying to get a simple boiled egg. The company offered me a voucher to give it a second go and today I finally got round to coming back.... Feeling morally obligated to give them a second chance with the egg, that's what I did but I'm sorry to... More

Visiting from out of town, wonderful find. Fresh ingredients, the bread is amazing and the selection is abundant. If you enjoy avocado the toast dish is a must, it is light enough yet filling. I also recommend the Autumn Grain Bowl, taking the receipt for Thanksgiving. Only downside is service in two visit it was so-so, don't be in a... More

convenient location and excellent food. A bit expensive (roughly 20USD for a light meal), but in line with other places in the area. Appreciated the seasonal selection and the variety of salads and desserts. Some unexpected items on the menu, adding a nice variety. Friendliness of staff varied from person to person. overall good.

Staff needs training on getting correct order. Had to request coffee and milk three times until she got it right. Then had to wait ten minutes for the croissant to arrive. Place wasn't too crowded so don't understand why service was horrible.

Great spot for people watching enjoying a bit and wonderful cold brew. Right next to Sunday Dupont Circle Farmers Market. Pastries are amazing and the breakfast items looked wonderful.

I go very often to the Pain Quotidien in Dupont Circle. In warm weather the outside tables are the best for people watching. During the winter months the communal tables and a hot soup are perfect. Very good breakfasts with excellent croissants and chocolate nutella. For lunch or dinner I love the open face tartines, all of then excellent and... More
