Had dinner and then breakfast here during our trip. The food was well prepared and the service was ok. I enjoyed the new flavor combinations. We sat outside on the patio which was good for sunshine and people watching.

So looking forward to eating here as it has everything we liked to eat but unfortunately our waitress made it a chore for us. I don't think she had the ability to smile. Her manner was off hand and to top it all, we had to wait a full hour for our breakfast to finally arrive after ordering. This was... More

This is a really nice little restaurant/café if you are after a lighter meal. The food is excellent, we ordered sandwiches and they were a good size and very tasty, and were ideal for us as a family. The service was excellent and the staff were very nice and chatty. The restaurant itself is located just off Dupont Circle so... More

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
