...and I don't even like cheesecake...

I didn't visit this place for ages because I thought it was just cheesecake. But at some point I discovered that lunch was available, and I found that their sandwiches and hot-food options are perfect Takoma Park fare. It reminds me a lot of Savory, which used to occupy this space. Same casual... read more

Wonderful place to meet for coffee and snack or breakfast or lunch. They serve a nice brunch on the weekends. 1/3 of a mile ( easy 8 minute walk) from Takoma DC metro.

This restaurant is ideally located for those living in the vicinity. It's a cozy restaurant and could play a central place in this progressive and vital community. BUT the restaurant offers nothing but unhealthy choices. It replaced a prior restaurant with a wide selection of vegetarian dishes with one that has nothing but processed meats and sugar-packed deserts. It would... More

This is the neighborhood spot I've been looking for and I'm not even in this neighborhood. The 20 minute drive will be made many times in the future. Breakfast was simple but so many other places figure out ways to mess it up. Bagel toasted just right, eggs fresh and hot, bacon crisp, cheese to the right degree of melt,... More

This is my go-to coffeeshop in Takoma Park. Chill atmosphere, tables and couches available for sitting, wifi connection. The cheesecake is excellent and the coffee is solid. A perfect spot for meeting friends or getting a little work done. If you find yourself passing by, grab a slice of cheesecake to go - totally worth it. There is parking in... More

I was there several times, the service and food are consistently mediocre and overpriced. The cheesecake is ok, sandwiches not really. I'm not sure where the other glowing reviews are coming from.

This casual cafe offers a consistent menu of sandwiches, wraps, soups, and salads as well as the usual assortment of sweets and hot drinks. What makes it stand out is the amazing, single-serving cheesecakes that always have you dying for more! My favorite is the Sea Salt Caramel, though Cookies and Cream and Red Velvet are close seconds. When in... More

I love everything about this place-- the food, the ambiance, the owners (who are sisters). My favorite is their turkey chili. I have lots of meetings there because it's cozy/comfortable (coaches downstairs) but spacious enough you can actually hear each other.

Stopped in on my way out of town and had delicious coffee and a bagel. Will definitely go back for more next time I'm in the area.

Living in Takoma Park with a little one, Capital City Cheesecake has become my go-to hangout. The staff are some of the friendliest people you might meet, which makes it a great place for me to go have adult conversation amid all the baby talk I otherwise engage in. In paint above the doors it talks about coming in as... More
