That was a Fritata?

Not like any I have ever had before. Much better in fact, but more like a crustless quiche than what I had always thought a fritata was. I had a spring pea cheddar dish that was wonderful. My wife had scones that were really good as well- not dry and boring like what I have had before. The mochas... read more

Everything about my visit was good. The food was excellent. The bread was amazing. The wait staff was proficient.

We looked forward to this meal, but left disappointed. The staff were not particularly helpful, and the meals left a lot to be desired, though they were expensive. Wouldn't recommend.

As this restaurant was close to our hotel, we went several mornings for coffee and breakfast. I don't think there is toast and definitely not peanut butter BUT the soft boiled egg and bread soldiers were perfect. The fruit spreads were excellent with the very fresh bread. You can get omelettes and salads so most people will find something to... More

We were staying in Dupont Circle for a few days and were so excited to try this cafe on the corner all week. It was a huge disappointment. The staff didn't seem to know too much of what was going on -- we came inside, as we wanted to grab some items to-go, but the counter staff said that we... More

Part of a chain, but even so the breads were crusty and good. Bought brioche for breakfast twice, had a couple cookies too. Very busy corner, with outside seating. Just down from the Eastern Market, an institution in DC.

On my last day in the city I went here as a recommendation by my hotel. I had a chocolate croissant and a cappuccino!

Admittedly, I am new to the area, but I fancy myself as somewhat difficult to please when it comes to a dining experience and this little bakery lived up to any expectation one could have. First, the prices are very reasonable. My friend and I each had a glass of wine and shared the cheese and charcuterie board and were... More

What's good about this chain is that it's predictable. What was not expected was to be charged take-out muffins at table prices.
