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

Go here to enjoy an experience of different foods Nice and clean. In a rustic setting. The service was somewhat slow, considering we visited after the lunch busy period The soup was enjoyable, it was served with one piece of very nice home cooked bread, but we had to request additional bread. Our experience was over shadowed by having to... 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.

Creative and excellent quality food from breakfast through dinner. Atmosphere is bright and cheery and seems to enhance conversation. Service is great and never rushed.

I was here on election day morning while my wife was undergoing a procedure at nearby Pennsylvania Hospital. There are a lot of good breakfast choices and my French Toast with berries turned out to be a good one. It was served with a large pot of tea - I'm not a coffee drinker so I can't say how good...

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.

Visited this place for lunch as it looked the most appealing in the neighbourhood. Found the specials very good. A chicken salad mixture on toasted bread. Nice ambience and feels more relaxing than places like Starbucks.

The atmosphere is cozy and the food is perfect. On a cool dreary day this is the place for food that will warm your soul. Everything from the gazpacho, to warm cider, to house salads and quinoa cakes was just yummy. We also tried the vegan scone as well as a custardy fruity vegan desert which was ever so good.... More
