In 1992, thrown together on Cape Cod by political circumstances none of them could have predicted, four young Yugoslavs founded Pain D'Avignon.Their goal was to recreate the Old World Traditions using baking techniques and recipes barely changed in centuries. Their founding principle: fine breads deserve to be at the center of the dining experience, not a mere afterthought. At their Hyannis bakery, the timeless art of bread making is both revered and respected. Everyday salt, flour and filtered water are combined – like the bakers themselves – with a distinctly European flavor.

    Two of us had a delicious meal at Pain D’Avignon. We both had the Classic French roast chicken with baby potatoes and a cress salad. Nothing fancy, just delicious. We split the Bibb salad to start which was dressed to perfection and crispy shallots. Also simple and delicious. Oh and of course the bread!!! You get to leave with a mini baguette each as a bonus. The wait staff are attentive but not invasive and an absolute pleasure. PAD is probably my favorite restaurant on the Cape.

    The food was spectacular as usual! ❤️ My only complaint was that we were seated close to an EXTREMELY noisy group of diners, who had no consideration of the neighboring diners or self-awareness of their boorish behavior! The waiters should be trained to look for such situations and either politely intervene or reseat people! I also love the complimentary loaves of bread at the end of the meal! We will be coming back again because we love it. Just try and manage the obnoxiously noisy customers.

    Lovely food - the highest quality on the Cape. There was a jazz band - that night - nice music. Fabulous and fascinating to be able to watch the bakers next door bake baguettes. They also give everyone some fresh bread as you leave. This is my favorite restaurant here.

    We have always loved Pain D'Avignon but last night's dinner was a disappointment. We asked to be seated at a quieter table but turns out the restaurant had a jazz band setting up very noisily and distracting so we asked to move to a table near the bar. The server got stuck bringing sandwiches and drinks to the band so we ordered with someone else. The music was way too loud and overbearing. My husband had the lobster pasta and I had the cod. Both were under seasoned and bland, the French Onion soup was ok not great and the steak tartare also under seasoned. Our meal was definitely not up the the more than $200 bill. The staff is lovely and nice but the atmosphere and food were lacking. We might give it one more try but overall very underwhelmed.

    I’ve had the same server before. He is very pleasant but not very good and hasn’t improved since July. We waited quite a while to give drink order and longer to get it. We had to ask for daily specials and his descriptions were incomplete. It’s the 2nd time in a row I’ve ordered a salad and it didn’t seem to be freshly made. Cassoulet that has the meat separate? Cod that was probably previously frozen? I really love PDA. I wish that it could get back to previous excellence both in food and service.

    Absolutely wonderful meal! First time dining here in the evening and it was nice to see it transformed into a wonderful eatery. Our food was delicious, drinks were terrific and it was wonderful to see such an interesting assortment of wines by the glass. And getting the mini baguettes to take away was a very nice touch!

    The food was outrageously good from their bread to the dessert. Cocktails were excellent and the wine list is curated so you can’t pick a subpar bottle. The service makes you feel well taken care of without being overbearing. Very professional. Can’t wait to go again.

    We had an amazing dinner at PDA last night. We ate early becuase we had to be somewhere. Love this time of when the Cape slows down. The ambiance at PDA is always wonderful, but in the fall it feels a little more special and intimate. We love our sweet friends who work at PDA and they are hardest working people in the biz!! They always take wonderful care of us!! We split our favorite appetizer - shrimp provencal. He had the salmon in vodka and caviar sauce and I had the burger. Everything was incredible from beginning to end!! We ❤️ PDA!
