Excellent Crab cake sandwich-- and the broccoli that it comes with is scrumptious! I'm still trying to recreate it at home.

Closed for renewal from July 2 to July 4, 2014. Did not get in, so just put an average number of stars. Don't look at them!

Great location downtown for those who are trying to find healthy food not far from the National Mall. Right near the Archives/Navy Memorial Metro. Only a few blocks from the museums. Some outdoor seating in the shade.

This is the place to go for anything to do with tea, and if you don't know what you want just ask for help. The friendly help will clear up your confusion and you will go off with some of the best tea available. Of course, how you make it depends on you....

My daughter and I came here while on a school trip we both got Bento Boxes The food was really good. If you got the Iced tea it was free refills they even offer water for you to fill up your water bottles. Definitely coming back again.

Lots of healthy options available very quickly. Order at the bar, etc. Several different options for food, focusing mainly on asian influenced foods. Plenty of vegetarian and vegan options. Good tea as well.

Visited this place with a friend who recommended it because of the vegan options available. Its a short walk from the museums. I ordered the veggie bento box, curried lentil soup and ginger zing tisane. Honestly I would only definitely go back for the curried lentil soup. It was hearty, filling and very tasty in flavor-good portion size. The ginger... More

Mediocre food. They used leave notices at the tables warning patrons of pick-pockets. At my most recent visit, the shop charged me $6.50 for a Theo's chocolate bar that I normally buy at Whole Foods for $2.99. I sent a complaint through the shop's website and had no response. I also noticed that the Organic Silver Needle that I've been... More

We had tea here twice during our stay in D.C. Just a few blocks from the Smithsonian museums. There are many varieties of tea and other drinks. I found the tea to be perfectly hot and very good. We also enjoyed the salted oat cookies. There is an extensive Asian flavored menu, which we did not try.

Read the menu and order at the counter. There are a variety of asian dishes, including soup, seitan, bento boxes, noodles, and lots of side dishes, teas, cookies, etc. We've eaten here for years and return regularly. Not high-end gourmet food, but it's a step or two up from street food. The facility is on two levels, which means that... More
