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

I've been here a couple times; nice ambience, decent food, and good location. From an ethical perspective the waiter didn't know if the eggs were cage free but there are lots of salads for vegetarian options! The interior is probably the best part though, I love all the wood that they use. I was inspired to write a review, however,... More

It took 45 minutes for my order to arrive. The servers are very friendly, but they just cannot seem to manage when half the tables are filled. They also cannot get the orders straight. Don't come here if you are hungry or are in a rush.

Stopped in for a quick meal before a meeting. The service was friendly and efficient. The french toast was light and delicious. The fruit was fresh and the coffee was hot and robust.

This place used to be fantastic under the old manager that was moved to the LPQ at Wildwood Shopping Center. Now, it is a disaster. Saturday morning 9:30 a.m., the place is not busy.

Tucked into Bethesda Lane (essentially an alley off the main drag in Bethesda), Le Pain Quotidien feels roomy and light; the menu is typical for up-to-date bistro food. I had just 15 minutes to grab a quick gazpacho and was delighted with the speed and good humor of the service. The soup, too, was quite satisfying and would have been... More
