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.

It wasn't busy when we visited for brunch. This was our first visit and we didn't know if you waited to be seated or picked up your order and then found seating. There was no sign indicating anything. We asked a lady behind the counter,...More

It is like going to an Hilton hotel. You know what you are getting and nothing wrong w dependable quality. This location however does offer outdoor space and quicker service than most other LPQ’s. Very friendly as well.

We go often to pick up half a loaf of sliced bread when we have a dinner at home. We also go for special occasions when a cake is needed. And I always indulge in a double expreso, the best in town

Prices are very high. The food is delicious but just not enough of it because the servings are tiny. My hot chocolate was without chocolate flavor. We will not return

Came for breakfast around mid morning and enjoyed good coffee, avocado toast, and the egg sandwich. Simple and high quality food with an attentive and kind server. Fun atmosphere for a light breakfast or lunch on the way to or from Georgetown.
