Le Pain Quotidien, Bethesda MD

I've always love taking my pup to Bethesda for an afternoon stroll.  There are so many good restaurants in the area plus there's capital crescent trail to walk around with a full tummy.  So on another sunny Saturday morning, we arrived at Bethesda row with our pup and a lab.

both for sale? heck no :)

We arrived before 10am so restaurant choices were limited.  We randomly picked this European cafe style restaurant situated on Bethesda row and ended up loving the place.  The restaurant is called Le Pain Quotidien and featuring many healthy and organic dishes.

I absolutely adore their outdoor patio dining area.  Here's a picture to prove how much I loved the scenery from our table.  On top of that, our waiter absolutely loved our puppy since he also has a Bichon at home.  He wouldn't leave our pup alone!  Of course I wanted to tip him extra for making that smiling face every time he walked by :)

We started out with a couple coffee drinks, they are a must to start the day right.  He ordered regular coffee that came in this adorable set and my soy latte came in a mere ordinary cup, talk about opposites, ha!

We picked french toast and omelet for entrees (in many of their fancy words of course).  They were both made with fresh organic ingredients and tasted awesome.  The dishes are somewhat pricey in this cafe though, as you may have guessed.  The average dish for breakfast item is about 10-12 dollars.

popping colors on french toast! yum!

chicken chorizo omelet. good!

The dish portions are small and the price isn't cheap, but if you want to get fancy a bit and chill with your dogs on a nice day out, this would be a good choice!

FoodiePop's rating: 4.2/5
(okay I added 0.5 star because they all loved our dog...*ashamed*)
