But tasty food made it a 3. companion who lives in DC raved about it but service was poor. Waitress was nice and looked like she was trying her best but still. Forgot a dish. Had to keep asking for coffee refills. In fact we had to hunt her down for everything. When she walked around you could tell she... More

Cady's Alley near a bike shop in Georgetown is home to this Austrian restaurant. With a delightful courtyard and welcome AC inside, you will enjoy the best almond croissant since, well, your trip to Austria. Service is impeccable (but be prepared to listen carefully to the European accents) and the setting is clean, modern and charming all at the same... More

We enjoyed the selection of tempting desserts. Service was quite slow considering the number of empty tables and that we ordered only cold desserts from the display case.

Forget about Leopolds when you want a real espresso. Not worth your money. Not only is the espresso like water, it also took way to long to be served (thus luke warm). After a second try, the espresso was still like water but a bit warmer. Busboy very service minded, excellent!

Located on a quaint cobblestoned street, this place is very popular for breakfast/brunch. It's perfect to spend a long lazy brunch with friends on a nice sunny day. We had to wait almost 40 mins for a table but the food was well worth the wait! Totally recommend their Belgian waffle, emperor pancake and the tartine. The coffee was pretty... More

Having visited Vienna I was thrilled to think I could get authentic Austrian cuisine on our recent trip to DC. My chicken dish was not at all exciting - unattractively arranged on the plate, undercooked, with equally undercooked potatoes. My husband's beef was also nothing special. Our biggest disappointment was the Kaiserschmarren which I had adored in Vienna. It was... More

We came here with hubby to introduce our oldest daughter to Gtown scene. This is one of our fave places. My daughter and I have been to Vienna recently, so this visit was perfect to remember the little details we seem to overlook sometimes. Our arrival was less than one hour before the end of brunch, but we had a... More

This place is fascinating. Start with a good coffee from one of the good brands in Austria. Rich menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner with lots of traditional Austrian food. You can start easy and relax through the day. Best to enjoy in their shady garden.

We had a late breakfast. Ham and cheese scone and the Croque Monsieur ($15) were delicious. Fruit was fresh! Our waitress was very friendly!

I don't know what has happened to this urban chic restaurant but it has changed beyond recognition. Although on the surface the cool interior and terrace area are the same the food is terrible. Three times I have tried to get coffee and boiled eggs and three times the coffee has been nasty tasting, bitter and the eggs raw and... More
