I stopped here for lunch with my sister on a Saturday when there was a crafts festival in town. We ate outside, which may have added to our enjoyment, but the food was excellent. My sister had the spinach and pear salad, and I had a frittata, accompanied by a salad and fresh-made bread. The ingredients seemed fresh, and were organic for the most part. Very good flavor combinations--we were very pleased. The wine selection is a little limited, and the service somewhat slow, but it was an overall positive experience.

My family - consisting of one vegan, one vegetarian, and two omnivores - can all get a good meal at this spot. They always have a vegan lunch special, and can also accommodate gluten intolerance. The bakery items are heavenly. The cost of the beverages surprises me a bit, but they don't offer canned sodas or bottled teas so I guess we get what we pay for! The breakfast items are standouts, as is the vegetarian chili.

A nice place to unwind over breakfast. I found the patio more relaxing but it has the nicest farm table I have seen inside. Breads are super fresh and tasty. The skillet eggs looked perfect. Great healthy choices, ie smoothies and greens, if that is what you are looking for too. And if course I tried the Café Mocha served in a bowl!

Our family of three loves Le Pain Quotidien. We go there for excellent café au lait and wonderful pastries. Sandwiches and soups are also excellent. Service is very good. Ambiance is cozy and the long communal tables are a wonderful way to feel part of the community.

We like the food here general but I find the portions small for the prices. The breads, jams and sweets are generally good.
