It's light fare: delightful tartines (open-faced sandwiches), delicious organic (and usually a nice vegan) soups, baguettes and classic sandwiches and a variety of great, organic salads served in a very nice communal table setting. Very popular with the local Spring Valley set and the many visitors to the NW location on Mass Avenue. Delicious fresh baked breads accompany every meal... More

There are a few Pain Quotidians in the D.C. area and exactly 0 in Atlanta. (Please change this Pain Quotidian corporate). We love solid, unpretentious healthy options and PQ fits the bill when we are in DC for x-mas week. The family house is packed with every delicious, but unhealthy option on earth and sometimes you just have to break... More

This is nice quality but the selection is often minimal. There are numerous other bakeries within a few blocks that offer greater choice. I don't know why the US locations are so often understocked.

We visited the bakery on New Years at the location on 17th street for a relaxing breakfast and it was highly disappointing. I ordered the smoked salmon breakfast with a soft boiled egg. When I cracked open the egg, it spilled out clear liquid and runny yolk. I know what a soft boiled egg is, this was completely raw. I... More

This place has such an appeal to it - from the looks, the food and the menu. There's a fantastic chicken sausage omelette that my husband had for breakfast that was yummy! The french toast is also very good. Not cheap, but mid-range and very fresh.....lots of yummy pastries and bread. Wonderful place to stop on a cold chilly day.... More

We have been to several Le Pain locations in the U.S. and Europe. Usually the formula for sandwiches, soup and salads is consistent. Sandwiches here were a bit dry, salad was limp. Deserts were good. Restaurant is large and inviting. Lots of room in the back.

A French cafe perfect for an indulgent breakfast on a chilly day! I would not consider this a "cheap eats" spot, but it is delicious for breakfast. The interior is very cute and warm; the menu is quite delicious too!

We stopped in at the Georgetown location on P St. Nice to have healthy vegan food options. Would get 5 stars if door and windows were smudge free, and table tops cleaned more often.

Service were lacking, but the food was fresh, attractive and flavorful. Made to order. Don't go if you are in a rush. Take your time. Not a fan of the mint lemonade.
