Well, I loved coming to the Longworth Cafeteria every time I visited our Congressional staff for one thing - the BBQ Brisket.

Lots to choose from and you might get to sit down and visit with one of your representatives or their aides! Right in the heart of DC where all the laws are made.

Across from the Capital are the 3 House of Representative and Senate buildings; Cannon, Longworth and Rayburn with their own cafés. Great sandwiches, salad bars, hot foods. You can go into these buildings after going through security. Walk around and drop in on your state congressmen. Really interesting and fun.

So much choice, and very reasonable! As healthy as you want to be~ great salad bar, wraps, nice pizza, fried foods, and even desserts! We went twice in a week - very affordable. Staff at checkout is very friendly.

If you are down in the Capital area and want a good meal at a great price, go to the bottom floor of the Longworth building. Yes it is a Cafeteria, but the selection is wonderful and the price is right.

Lots of variety, interesting people-watching and I enjoyed everything I chose to eat. My Washington friend knew about it, otherwise I would never have found it!

A little on the pricey side, but it was a great place to be right after we toured the Capitol. Fresh salads, hot entrees and desserts.

Good place to stop when you need a break from working the Hill. The food is typical cafeteria fare and, all things considered, reasonably priced. You will see a very interesting group of people in this place.
