I went to Busboys and Poets with my best friend, who is vegan, and we were both completely enamoured with both the restaurant's style and its food. There were plenty of options for both of us, and everything came out perfect.

Server was quick and attentive. He helped with dietary issues. Atmosphere was pleasant but a bit noisy for conversations.

This is it. There are only a handful of best breakfast restaurants that I have experienced in the U.S. Busboys and Poets is a great experience from start to finish. Sweet potato pancakes, bloody mary are two top rated menu items that stand out from other places. Lots of organic menu items. A bookstore, delightful restaurant and friendly staff combine to create unbeatable value. This is an experience you should not pass. They have more than one location. We like the one on 14th.
