“Good Food and Nice Outdoor Seating”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

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.

“Cute Place to Dine”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

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.

“Little Bit of Paris in A Cup”
Reviewed June 18, 2012

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

“About like any other place in DC.”
Reviewed March 19, 2012

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.
