Peacock Cafe has always been one of our Georgetown favorites. The warmth from the staff and the delightful menu options are excellent. Chef Maziar's pistachio soup has become a "must have" on every visit. I've never had anything like it ... a truly creative flavor treat.

Slightly off the main drag of M St, this place was lovely for brunch. We visited on a Sunday and they were airing the World Cup on two TVs behind the bar. It was a fun atmosphere, with many other tables and even the wait staff cheering when their team scored. The menu had a surprisingly large selection of vegetarian... More

Service was correct. Ahi tuna cooked just right (ask for dressing on side). Mussels tasty and fresh. Bread was good too. Cost appropriate.

Easy to find, full of locals, lovely way to spend a Sunday brunch. Sandwiches were very tasty and we were seated right on time. Didn't feel rushed at all despite the fact that the place was hopping. We chose to wait for an outside table and were seated on time as noted. Nothing exceptionally special but a very enjoyable and... More

Location and service are great. Two convenient parking places in Georgetown is super. Food is ordinary. We were a party of four: 2 ordered Eggs Chesapeake, 1 asked for scrambled eggs with bacon and the other ordered scrambled eggs with chicken sausage. So based on what we ordered, there truly is nothing the chef can do to make the dishes... More

Had lunch outside with a girlfriend . Nice selection for lunch. My half turkey sandwich with Brie and tomato pesto was a bit soggy and a very miserly piece of Brie. Mixed green salad average. My glass of rose was very good. Nice selection of wines by the glass. Great people watching. Friendly, attentive staff

I recently ate here while visiting Georgetown. Nothing was wrong with my meal, but it wasn't any special. I had the sandwich and salad combo with a Caesar and chicken sandwich. The service was good and the food came out quickly.

Quite the 'In' place in Georgetown - we went for Brunch but immediately changed to their good value three course lunch ($24.95). We were the first people in, having waited for the restaurant to open at 11am. Food was good, we forgave them a mouldy piece of cucumber in the salad which was quickly replaced and we were given complimentary... More

We happened upon this charming café while sight-seeing Washington D.C..... "Georgetown". The day we had lunch was so beautiful.... 75 and sunny, had to eat outdoors. On vacation attending the wonderful "Cherry Blossom Festival" the "Peacock Café", we must say, was one of the highlights of our vacation. Street-side dining in the rustic old neighborhood, surrounded by historic homes.... the... More

Totally enjoyed our meal here a few weeks ago. Walked in on a weekday, without a reservation. Had a very nice, cozy table. Every course, from the bread to the dessert was really delicious. Never been here before, but will definitely go back.
