Great local restaurant!

Great restaurant a stone's throw from Omni Shoreham. Very diverse food selection, with breakfast available 24-7! Food was very good, with lots of options for kids. Justin was our server, and he took great care of us!

Really nice food. Spicy chicken tenders delicious and succulent, very spicy but not overpowering. Carnivore pizza was exactly as expected. Very reasonably priced. Be advised, no bookings taken so first come first serve. Large outside area but when I visited it was completely empty as it was the middle of a storm!!

We stayed at the hotel up the street and walked here to have breakfast every morning before our adventures around the city. My girlfriend loved the lattes specially with there little design in the foam. Food was great. Everything tasted fresh. Did not have one bad meal.

Their classic hamburger sandwich was great. Huge hamburger patty cooked to your choice. A couple strips of bacon, cheese, lettuce, tomato, and onion. Served with fries, pickles and their special sauce.

We ate here several times over the course of 3 days....we were staying at the Omni Shoreham across the road but didn't want to pay their exhorbitant food prices! We had both breakfast and dinner there and both were excellent. I can highly recommend the braised short rib! Great, friendly service too. Look out for their specials....great value.

Had breakfast here for the three days we were stopping in Washington DC across the road in the Omni Shoreham. Also had dinner there one evening. Excellent food on all occasions, friendly staff, great atmosphere and very reasonable prices. If you like pizza and wine go on the Tuesday night for the date night, pizza and a bottle of wine...

Great food and kid friendly. We sat outside on a wonderful August night. The menu is huge, breakfast all day and great desserts. I had the wild mushroom pizza and it was fabulous. Decent prices for great food.

What a gem of a place to eat! The worst part is how loud it is when you sit inside the main eating area with a/c. We ate there 4 out of the 5 days we were in town because the food was so good. I had the chicken salad sandwich, chicken salad, and california omelette (2 days because it... More

We ate here twice on a short vacation and everyone agreed they wanted to go back instead of trying another place. They had a good selection for the kids and also great sophisticated adult food. The chicken was great but so was the meatloaf. The only disappointment was the french fries. Really overall really great.
