There is both a line for ordering out and a sit-down space with table service. We sat down for breakfast. The food was delicious. The cold brew coffee was a much lighter roast than at most places and it wasn't great. The staff were all very friendly.

My wife and I ate breakfast here in January 2017. Le Pain Quotidien is located in an area near several major hospitals. My wife wanted to eat breakfast here and I decided to go in despite the fact that my experience with Le Pain Quotidien in New York has been very poor (poor service and cold hot chocolate). I was...

After a doctor's appointment at Jefferson Neurosciences one block away, we were hungry and had spotted this cafe on our way into town. The service was good and the food we ordered was also very tasty. Great bread!

Like many, I usually turn off at the suggestion that organic food is tasty, interesting, and fulfilling but Le Pain turns that on its head. There is a wide variety of food and both my GF and I had great meals (I took liberal samples from hers...). The service is informal and pretty fast and our waiter had a distinct... More

Went there with a couple of friends, but I only had the multi-berry dessert tart and a glass of wine. It was acceptable, but not outstanding for a bakery.

I was here on election day morning while my wife was undergoing a procedure at nearby Pennsylvania Hospital.

A stand-out among Le Pain Quotidien's current healthy, tasty offerings is avocado toast---which I consider worth a detour. Smears and slices of avocado on toasted whole wheat sourdough are sprinkled judiciously with cumin flavored sea salt, an exciting combination. LPQ is a reliable stop for breakfast, snacks, light lunches and of course, their outstanding breads and tarts.
