Could improve service, everybody is in a rush to serve you went only once,not my kind of place. Prices were okey considering you're in DC. Great french toast.

Inexpensive (for DC) breakfast. Hard to screw up eggs and ham, but . . . Three slices of the thinnest gam on the planet and a brick of something purporting to be "hash browns". Pancake, however, was good. Busy place, get there early.

A lot of people go there on Saturday morning but they can handle quite a few. My experience has been 30-40 minutes. If you can you can send somebody ahead to sign in so everybody doesn't have to wait.
