Small cafe around the Georgetown area. Menu choice was all on one page. Had 2 starters (Palm heart, avocado, lemon vinegarette) and asparagus risotto. We didn't have dessert because we had ice cream beforehand. Decor is very Parisian of the 1920s.

I highly recommend Cafe Bonaparte. Loved their sweet and savory crepes! Our favorites were the daily special with eggs, ham, Brie, and mushrooms, the Bonaparte, and the crepe with mango, berry sauce, and lemon gelato.

Pleasant French cafe with quite a good brunch selection including French delicacies like escargot. If you like European style cafes, than this is a nice choice in the area.

This week I went with a friend for lunch to Cafe Bonaparte. It's a cosy little restaurant in Georgetown with a pleasant sort-of-French atmosphere. Because it is indeed quite small, tables are very close to each other. At lunch time the restaurant fills up very...More
