We visited Le Pain in Washington as we like the one in NYC so much. I had the Chicken curry open sandwich and a pot of coffee and it didn’t disappoint, very tasty! I would definitely recommend checking one out.

Where to eat breakfast while visiting Washington D.C. out of the hotel? Le Pain Quotidien is the answer. Coffee is very good. The Salmon scallion Omelet was excellent as is the bread. Clean, friendly service and 1/2 the price of the hotel restaurant.

We stopped in for tea and coffee in the middle of the afternoon after sightseeing. The restaurant is clean, nice decor, and a friendly staff. It was the perfect way to take a 30 minute break in the afternoon in DC.

This trip to Pain Quotidien saw a cup of Belgian mocha and apple tart. The mocha is served in a bowl mug. The tart and mocha were excellent. The server was friendly and the food arrived quickly.

It warm enough to eat outside on sidewalk for Easter morning breakfast. The restaurant was very buzy but the staff made our breakfast delightful. Fresh waffles and omelets with coffee and afterwards, off to the Mall.

Warm Goat Cheese salad was delicious and satisfying. Didn't need an appetizer. Great meal . Would patronize the chain again. Was my first time, definitely not my last
