Close to the Library of Congress, Le Bon Cafe has good food at decent prices. When the weather is nice, you can sit outside to eat which is always fun.

There aren't lots of tables, but for some reason you can always find a place to sit. It can get busy, so if you are visiting with kids try to time going there not during the lunch hour rush.

Such a great atmosphere & it took me so long to finally decide on something to eat! I got an egg sandwich and it was divine, but everything looks great on the menu so I don't think you can go wrong.

This place serves the best coffee I have ever tasted in the US. Their oatmeal was only ok but the waffles were great.

The place is fairly close to the Capitol building and almost directly behind the Library of Congress. There are a few sandwiches to choose from ranging in price from 5 to 7 or 8 dollars. I want extremely impressed with those but heard the soup was good. Also they have amazing cookies. Overall you might find something better.

Le Bon has fantastic soups, sandwiches, and salads - a great little stop - although there is limited seating, that is part of Le Bon's charm.
