Market Lunch serves fabulous breakfasts and wonderful seafood lunches inside historic Eastern Market. There is a reason there is always a line on weekends -- it's that good. When family members visit from out of town, their first request is always to go to Market Lunch. We've eaten there for decades and are still willing to stand in line!

And to me that spells PERFECT! I'm in DC for a few days and becoming quite tired of shelling out $50 a pop for 2 people to have a meal. This place fit my liking 100%. We split a fried haddock sandwich, grilled seasoned green beans, fried green tomatoes and lemonade and tea...all for $21.

The food was wonderful, the people very friendly and I left satisfied and happy. What more could anybody ask for?

We got there 10 minutes after closing time, after being told that they were closed, they immediately asked what we wanted and proceeded to make us up our lunch anyway.
The staff were so friendly and helpful and our food was really tasty. One of the best lunches I had in DC, wished we could have gone again.

A little corner shop inside Eastern market served quick breakfast for visitors. Their menu is huge, serving variety of breakfast choices with fast and casual service. The price is small so you can get many dished to share as well.
