Le Pain Quotidien - Anything good (besides pastries)?

I tried this place a few times, always wanting to like it based on its European pedigree, but I always walked away feeling disappointed. The food is forgettable and it seems too pricey for what you get. Portions are small to moderate and very little preparation goes into any of their dishes (seriously, the sandwiches I had were open face with simply bread, a couple measly slices of meat on top and pots of mustard on the side) so what am I paying for?

Given my bad experiences I'd normally write this place off. However my SO lives around the corner from one and it's the only breakfast/lunch place in walking distance of his house. Given that I'd really like to give it another try and am reaching out to my Chows for suggestions. Any recommendations? What's good? What's not worth the money?
