Grab a table in the bar”ish” area vs waiting for a table in the back - the view is better and service is great! The food is terrific and prices are reasonable for DC. It’s a must go!

@Budgettczar thank you for that awesome review. When the patio is opened up on warmer weather make sure you comer give that view a try.

Really fresh ingredients and very flavorful options. Something for everyone. If you want a big breakfast or a mindful healthy one, you can find both here. Freshly squeezed orange juice would be a nice addition.

Neat atmosphere, laid back. The food was great - we were a party of 11. The service was friendly and good. And important to me, was the desert, which was great. I had the brownie banana split.

I would say definitely if you are going at peak times. We managed to get a seat at the bar but the place was rammed.
