We were really impressed with this chain overall. I love the eco-friendly approach they take to their food and production processes. The inside is really quaint, and the menu is incredible - cauliflower, kale and cheddar frittata on the new local menu, many items with avocado and smoked salmon (two of my faves), and great coffee and pastries. Only con... More

Ah, DC is not a great food town, but if you are exploring LPQ on trip advisor I'd have to ask if you are looking mcdonald's up next.

Our meeting was very 'cozy' as it is small seating area. I ate the quinoa cake and loved it so much! I have had a few things from here, including a catering order of desserts. Everything delicious. They are a delight to work with. Our waitress was very friendly. I will be back.

Though a chain, Le Pain has a personal style and an adventurous menu. I love the open-faced tuna tartine. Good for vegetarians. And the desserts are off the chart.

I have eaten here a few times, and the food is always very well prepared. But the service is so sketchy at this location, I will not be going back. At my latest visit, I sat at the table for at least 10 minutes, no one even acknowledging my presence. I finally left. Also, I generally get a salad here.... More
