Restaurant details
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

Stopped in here the first morning we got in to DC. Just a block down from our hotel. Seems like a place for the locals to eat and hangout. Great homemade breakfast sandwiches. Great coffee and Lattes. Seating inside. Few tables outside. We thought the prices were great. Owners were very welcoming. Service was fast and friendly. We also came in for lunch on our last day. Kings Street, Duke Street Cold Sandwiches; Washington Street Hot Sandwich; Royal Street Wrap were all great and modestly priced. Fantastic little place!

Surprised by the lack of seating for what turned out to be one great breakfast. Small mom and pop place with barely a kitchen, but it was great. Gourmet coffee, bagels, meats and eggs. DO NOT BYPASS, even if you have to sit on the street curb and eat.

We had a nice lunch here on a day trip from Washington DC.

We were however over charged on the tax when paying the bill. It’s 4.3% in Virginia but when we queried it we were told it’s 10% in Alexandria. We couldn’t find that anywhere on the internet so just hope it wasn’t because we were tourists!

We stopped for a break during our walking tour. The atmosphere is welcoming and homey. The tea was delicious too.
