This café was quite a find! By that I mean that on a trip to DC, my wife and I were looking for a nice restaurant that offered a good breakfast menu (for me) as well as a good lunch menu (for her). It was early enough for breakfast and almost noon time for lunch so we and our sons... More

The morning glory omelet was good but the home fries were delicious. There were 5 of us for breakfast and we all had great meals.

Stopped by with my daughter for a sandwich. I had the veggie with hummus and roasted vegetables. It was excellent. My daughter had a smoothie with her sandwich which was very good. Inside casual and outside seating-- a developing hangout for those in the 14th street heights neighborhood.

Ate here with a friend on the way to the DCA airport on a Monday afternoon and really enjoyed it. Had the Grilled chicken with potato cut fries and my partner had a salad. Great outdoor seating on a cool, sunny Spring day. The service was slower than I expected, but the vibe/atmosphere of the joint and the taste of... More

I was introduced to this neighborhood eatery by a friend who is a huge fan. She ordered an egg and cheese sandwich that she exclaimed over. I had a Belgian waffle, which was obviously freshly made. I would have liked it a bit crisper and more brown, but it was still tasty. I appreciated the mix of urban singles and... More

My boyfriend and I went there tonight and the food was delicious. The staff was very courteous and friendly? I will definitely return. The atmosphere was very warm and cozy. I had shrimp linguini and it was so good, seasoned to perfection with very nice size shrimp.

My husband and I went to the Highland on Sat. June 9. We were looking for a place that had out door seating which they do have but the space was small so we decided to go in. The service was great and the Blackend Tilapia was supurb. My husband had the Shrimp and Grits which he said was excellent... More

Great breakfast, and one of the best burgers *ever*. What I liked most about the Highlands is that it's locally owned, and caters to local folks. Good food and good community makes it a good time as well as a good meal.

This is a family run place and on a typical night you pretty much see the whole family working. Standing menu and specials. Breakfast and dinner (haven't been there for lunch). Consistently great food and service. Place is small so seating can be tight and they do takeaway.
