Awesome corned beef hash!

While on a weekend jaunt to DC, we explored the Adams-Morgan area. We were on foot, so didn't cover much ground. But we did find a new favorite restaurant!

During my last full day in the city of Washington DC I wanted to try this restaurant for lunch. It was nothing short of amazing! The staff was pleasantly attentive. Special thanks to Martin or server for great suggestions and an upbeat demeanor. Also to Tairek for never allowing the water glasses to empty and a welcoming smile. Hot crisp... More

The Adam Morgan neighbourhood is interesting - fun to just sit and people watch on the terrace while having your breakfast. I had a hot cider to start as it was quite cool. Very sweet, but good. Then, for breakfast had a crab and avacado omelette. Delicious. They have a large selection of breakfast items - including drinks. Would be... More

The Diner features nice staff and a huge variety of food options. We were here for a Sunday morning brunch. We were seated quickly, and service was efficient and quick. Would definitely return in the future.

This place was buzzing with activity possibly more than any other eateries in Adams Morgan at the time we went there which was about 3 p.m. However, i am not sure i understand why! My personal experience was horrible from a customer service standpoint and i don't think the food was that great either. We tried some lamb sliders which... More

I went here with two friends for a mini reunion brunch during my last visit to DC. It was crowded and they don't take reservations, but the wait wasn't too too long - maybe 20-30 minutes. We sat outside and enjoyed the sun, so I didn't really see the inside decor. Our waiter was charming and attentive, despite the crowd,... More

Great food! My Bleu cheese burger was the best Ive ever had! They mix the blue cheese with gargonzola for a delicious spread. My wife loved her grilled chicken cobb salad. And the smores shake was wonderful

Love the diner, I've been in a number of occasions and the food and service is always awesome. I go after a night out or on a brunch day to sit outside and watch the world pass by. Friendly staff with a classic diner feeling. Can't beat it in the Adams Morgan area.

We went specifically for the breakfast menu. It took them about 10mins before they finally asked if we were ready to order, on an average busy day. Once our waiter spotted us and apologized for the lack of attention, he did take very good care of us. There are few gluten free and vegan options, so my partner was limited.... More
