Just outside the Ballston metro, Tivoli has the best pastries in the area. Look no further. If you show up late morning, you can get their freshest second batch of pastries. Lunch menu options taste like home cooked meals.

I know that change is constant but it was a real shock to see that my favorite place to grab coffee in the morning and lunch in the afternoon was closed. I had not been in the states for a few years but Tivoli's was a fixture for me, much like the old Orlean's restaurant which is now gone and... More

It was great place for coffee, sweets, gourmet deli purchases, sandwiches. You could even get a beer or a glass of wine. For whatever reason, today is their last day. I stopped by there this morning and the shelves were picked bare and the closings signs up. This is the second good'un we have lost of late, the other being... More

Was looking for a Starbucks in the area and ran into this shop. It is just outside the Rosslyn Metro Stop. I have never seen a bakery with so many choices in various pastries. And the espresso was pretty good too.

Got basic but tasty sandwiches here while waiting to catch the Rosslyn Metro. Good drink selection. We didn't try them, but they also had pastry.

Service is slow or maybe I'm just there at the wrong time (11 am?) and the food looks dried up and curling in the deli counters. I also didn't know where I was supposed to pay and they make you feel stupid waiting to be told to go to the register. AARGH! The prices aren't that reasonable either. This place... More

Pricey but worth it. If you want to make a spash get a Tivoli cake (it's such shame that the restaurant closed a few years ago; it was great). Lunch offerings are good and more reasonably priced but the desserts are what you really go there for.

It just keeps getting better. Try the scones although their pastries and made to order sandwiches are just as good.

Good option for breakfast and less expensive than the hotel restaurant. It also had great looking food for lunch and dinner.
