Tasty and wholesome. The tartines are very good, with fresh ingredients and homemade bread. We sat outside with our dogs and the provided water for them without us even asking. Service was at a nice pace and friendly.

Food was average but not worth the extra money. Portion size was small. Staff took your order but never checked if food was okay

Went for breakfast with my family in July. Not the quickest service and it's on the expensive side, but everything we had was very good, especially the omelette - don't know what made it so good, but it was honestly the most delicious omelette I ever had!! Unfortunately we "discovered" this place on our last morning in Washington, otherwise we... More

Warning, this is in the Georgetown where every tourist went for shop and eating, so you will see lines of people My suggestion is to take early morning stroll and grab the breakfast combo (I think it was selection of bread and jam) The communal table in the center would be a best pick if you have big party, or...

My wife and I wanted a quick breakfast/brunch before going to the Phillips Museum. There was a table available outside. We grabbed it. We sat there for more than 10 minutes before the waiter recognized that we were there. We ordered and then waited for 20 minutes for a couple sandwiches! The food was good. $12/pp. The waitstaff were so... More

The location is fantastic (Dupont) and the waiter I had (alex i think?) was very nice. The food itself was fine, but it took 55 minutes to get my food, and... More

The atmosphere was nice and being right off Glass Alley it was quite. The food however was small. The waffle I ordered was about e size of a large donut (3.5 to 4 inches a across). Also, being from the south I like to pour my syrup on to the waffle, this was not an option because it is served... More

Wow, what a surprise. Stumbled upon this looking for a good breakfast place outside the hotel. Excellent breakfasts, fabulous lattes, breads, and desserts. Many organic items. Very nice sidewalk patio. Went twice during our visit - wait staff uneven, but food fabulous both days. Highly recommend!

We stay in the Dupont Circle area whenever we visit Washington, DC, and we love to have breakfast at this little branch of this big chain. Everything is nicely done, the service is wonderful, and the hubbub of the neighborhood is exciting. We had the omelettes -- one with salmon, and the other with Paris Ham and Gruyere. Both were...
