Staff was attentive without being overbearing and really nice too! Food was tasty - we both had salads and they were interesting and deeply satisfying. A quiet restaurant, highly recommended if in need of good food, good wine, and good conversation.

Brunch was delicious. They’re remodeling right now, but you would never know it. Staff was courteous and attentive. Food was delicious and fairly priced especially for being right on DuPont Circle. Would visit again. Coffee was rich and dark brew.

Loved my Sunday Brunch. The atmosphere and staff were excellent. They had no problems accomodating my diet (I eat gluten, grain and sugar free).

Eggs Benedict was very good. Coffee was good. Salmon bagel and Avocado toast were ...meh. Kind of expensive @ $15-20 per breakfast plate, but not unexpected considering the area.
