Went for brunch and enjoyed superb croissants, baguette sandwiches and cappuccinos. Sat outside and enjoyed the people watching. We had a wonderful server and all of the staff were friendly and attentive. They were packed and our order was a little slow coming out (it was Sunday brunch; we had no reservation). They kept apologizing, but honestly, as we were... More

We ate here for two breakfasts and one lunch. The food s fresh and tasty. There are choices that will suit everyone. I had an omelet, quiche, oatmeal and a sandwich. All were great. Not cheap, but really good.

Loved the fresh choices and organic iced green tea! Avocado toast, quinoa tabouli were awesome! Really wish we had a lunch place like this back home where you can eat a full, healthy meal that's good for you without all the carbs and starches that make me sleepy! Oh and my friend said the coffee was amazing!

Table service and some family style dining. Great breads and breakfast items. Modestly priced and good service.

Quite liked this cafe. Lovely food. Only issue but it's more a general issue in parts of the US and its prices....everything is so expensive.

My family ate a late breakfast at this lovely restaurant, choosing it because it was just around the corner from our hotel, The Fairfax on Embassy Row. The minute we entered the restaurant and took in the sort of rustic French country ambiance we had an idea that we had made a good choice. Everything about this restaurant was comforting,... More

Coffee & Tea were great, the food was decadent and the coffee barista on 12/27 was excellent. The croissants were fresh and flaky.

Although this is a pricey place to eat breakfast the food was excellent. I had the goat cheese and mushroom omelet. It was filling enough that we skipped lunch. Close to Dupont Circle it was a great place to have breakfast.
