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.

1.5 blocks from Palomar Hotel, on the way to Dupont Circle. We had two excellent breakfasts there, the first when it was very busy, and the second when we were the first customers in the door at 7:00am. On that visit the hostess actually remembered what kind of tea my wife had asked for the day before!

I came here a few months ago and had a bad experience trying to get a simple boiled egg. The company offered me a voucher to give it a second go and today I finally got round to coming back.... Feeling morally obligated to give them a second chance with the egg, that's what I did but I'm sorry to... More

Visiting from out of town, wonderful find. Fresh ingredients, the bread is amazing and the selection is abundant. If you enjoy avocado the toast dish is a must, it is light enough yet filling. I also recommend the Autumn Grain Bowl, taking the receipt for Thanksgiving. Only downside is service in two visit it was so-so, don't be in a... More

convenient location and excellent food. A bit expensive (roughly 20USD for a light meal), but in line with other places in the area. Appreciated the seasonal selection and the variety of salads and desserts. Some unexpected items on the menu, adding a nice variety. Friendliness of staff varied from person to person. overall good.
