Had lunch on a sunny midweek day with friends. The lentil avocado salad was a great healthy option for lunch, as was the omelette. The avocado toast was a bit disappointing by comparison. The coffee was a bit milky and lukewarm - could definitely have been better. The selection of sweet treats and desserts was very nice. There was a... More

During a busy day, Le Pain Quotidien is a quiet and relaxing corner of Arlington. Not for the "low carb" crowd, LPQ can take you back to Brussels, Paris, or small rural town where having a small meal, cup of coffee, or pastry is seen as an art form. Nice place to read a paper, meet up with friends, or... More

This is a casual French-style restaurant that does breakfast and lunch and coffee and pastries, but for us it is the best bakery in town. We like to stop by and pick up bread or pastry on the way home from the Metro station. Great bread!

I've been their twice -- both times fine breakfast and good service. A bit noisy but tolerable. We were able to stay and enjoy our conversation despite the crowd. No pressure to leave fast.

PLEASE send these employees to Starbucks training!!!!!! They charge twice as much and make you wait twice as long.... It can't be that difficult to ring up a coffee and a pastry.... If you grab a table its a bit better. For the price the staff need to pep it up and get some fire under their tails... Ugh .... More

I have dined here a few times now and have enjoyed each time. This is where I imagine everyone is on a Tuesday at 11am while corporate america is running.

We wholeheartedly recommend the veggie quiche and a frittata. These dishes are good values for the money. Unfortunately, one drink glass had lip stick on the side, so we advise that the supervisors can continue to strengthen oversight of the overall cleanliness of the place especailly the washing of dishes. Seating was readily available at dinner time. What I like... More
