“Disappointed ”
Review of Le Pain Quotidien

Le Pain Quotidien
Ranked #51 of 62 Bakeries in Washington DC
Description: We're a Belgian bakery and restaurant serving simple, wholesome and seasonal food. Le Pain Quotidien means "the daily bread" in French, and like our name suggests, we're bakers at heart. Although our handmade, organic bread is how we got our start, we serve a variety of healthy options like organic coffee, pastries, eggs, tartines, soups, salads and desserts. At Le Pain Quotidien, we believe that food should be simple, nourishing and delicious. That's why we source ingredients that are local or organic whenever possible. We also believe in the importance of eating a healthy, plant-based diet, so you'll find many vegetarian or vegan options on our menu.

Food is good but service is awful... 1 hour wait and they brought our food at different times.
Not worth my time!

Spent $10 per person for an unremarkable breakfast. Pastries were okay but the cafe au lait was more milk than coffee (milked-down?). The server was not very enthusiastic and just did her job - barely. Would not return.

We went there for breakfast and waited for 50 min to get cold coffee, then even more time for food to come. The manager was less than pleasant, seemed like very tired of everything. We actually like this chain and often go in different cities though, but this one was absolutely out of say "norm". Would not ever go there again and not recommend to anyone!

Had a fine breakfast here. The super green smoothie is absolutely delicious. The service was nice but slow and did mess up our order. They ended up taking the meal off of our check which was very nice. But overall they seemed a bit frantic and short staffed. The interior is a bit rough - like it’s still being refinished?

Good food, good value and very nice staff. We ate there several mornings. Would have also had lunh but had other plans each day. The restrooms were open and very clean. This is important to me.
