“A Terrific Place for Brunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

Fireflies will surprise you with its brunch menu, a full array of tasty dshes that range from the traditional to the new. Try the individual quiche with a choice of four ingredients, often served right out of the oven by one of the chers. Add a side and coffee and you have a full meal with a special taste.The luncheon menu offers a range of sandwiches and pizzas that are good and fililng. Very good wait staff who are attentive to your needs. Live music fills the place throughout the week and on weekends so there is a sense of being right at home in the Del Ray neighborhood. If the weather is good, choose an outside table and take in the vibrant life in this part of Alexandria.

“Great breakfast spot!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I had breakfast with family and this well run restaurant in Delray recently on a Saturday and the food and service were excellent. While the seating is small the food value and service were huge. There were many choices to customize an omelette and my mushroom, green pepper, tomato and fresh mozzarella omelete with hash browns was tasty and cooked perfectly. We had a baby in tow and the staff was helpful and accomodating...the coffee was continually refilled and overall service was great. We will be back as it is located in a nearby neighborhood of my daughter's house....could be a favorite spot to go to for any meal.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

A nice burger in Del Ray. The restaurant is busy and noisy, but the food is good. They offer live music on Friday nights.

“Pizza & Beer at a casual neighborhood place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

What more can you ask than to have thin crust, delicious pizza and craft beers! Our group of four shared the Mount Vernon and the BBQ chicken pizzas on a recent Friday evening. The BBQ chicken was the clear winner, but we really enjoyed both pizzas enough to return again and again. Fire Flies has inside and outdoor dining, plus entertainment and lots of specialty nights. We hear that brunch is excellent, too. This is a neighborhood favorite of our adult children. The decor could be improved, but we were there for the food, beer and conversation.
