There are hundreds of brunch places in DC. Some great, others horrid. Everywhere from a 5 minute wait, to 2 hours. When I wake up hungry on a weekend morning and am looking for something healthy, filling, and easy, I head to Le Pain Quotidien (LPQ).
The boyfriend and I bundled up in our winter wear this weekend and wandered to one in DC for a morning feast.
I am obsessed with this place for two reasons…
1) Their strong, freshly brewed coffee – Each person gets their own little pot of coffee to pour into a mini bowl. Perfect for taking large sips and warming you hands during the chilly months of winter.
2) The avocado & tomato omelette – I’ve never been a big omelette fan, but for some reason, I am obsessed with this one! The eggs are so fluffy and cooked to perfection. You are given a side salad (very European) and delicious homemade bread. Slather on their jams and chocolate spread and you will feel as if you have died and gone to heaven.
The boyfriend had the oatmeal and the chicken and chorizo, organic cheddar omelette. Although he said the coffee was a bit strong for his liking (amateur), he scarfed down the both meals with a satisfied grin.
As the weather gets colder and you are looking for a delicious brunch that doesn’t require a reservation, run (don’t walk) to LPQ.
