I am a huge fan of Le Pain Quotidien in Europe but I found this one even better, very cozy and great service. I was in Washington on vacation and we had breakfast here twice, the omelette is delicious! I strongly recommend it

Found this wonderful place on our first day and from then it was our Breakfast stop for our visit. I loved the atmosphere with the exposed bricks, wooden floor, tables and chairs. Service was wonderful and the food was delicious.

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.
