Le Pain Quotidien closes its Reston location

The shop had served French style sandwiches and pastries since 2017.

Another restaurant closure to report — this one over at the Reston Town Center. Le Pain Quotidien, a French style sandwich shop, bakery and coffee shop, has permanently closed its location there. It’s the closest LPQ to Loudoun.

The restaurant — part of a nationwide chain — originally opened back in November 2017. It sat on Democracy Drive between a Banana Republic store and a Potomac River Running store.

It doesn’t appear the store reopened after the initial wave of coronavirus restaurant closures, and now, a spokesperson for the brand confirms they will not reopen the RTC location.

There are many other locations of Le Pain Quotidien in Northern Virginia, DC and the Maryland suburbs but it’s unclear if any of these have re-opened yet. LPQ seems to be slowly reopening stores — primarily in New York City and in California.

    Wonder how much of it was covid-19 and how much of it was the long-term business decline due to the ridiculous parking situation at RTC?

    Sadly the parking policies of RTC take another toll. It will be missed.
