This is the neighborhood spot I've been looking for and I'm not even in this neighborhood. The 20 minute drive will be made many times in the future. Breakfast was simple but so many other places figure out ways to mess it up. Bagel toasted just right, eggs fresh and hot, bacon crisp, cheese to the right degree of melt, and the coffee so flavorful it does not need cream or sugar. Coffee mug is also huge. My wife equally happy especially with the added avocado. Staff young, patient, friendly and efficient. Can't wait to try the cheesecake. Easily struck up a nice conversation with the folks at the next table.

This is my go-to coffeeshop in Takoma Park. Chill atmosphere, tables and couches available for sitting, wifi connection. The cheesecake is excellent and the coffee is solid. A perfect spot for meeting friends or getting a little work done. If you find yourself passing by, grab a slice of cheesecake to go - totally worth it. There is parking in front, but more spots in back.

I was there several times, the service and food are consistently mediocre and overpriced. The cheesecake is ok, sandwiches not really. I'm not sure where the other glowing reviews are coming from.

This casual cafe offers a consistent menu of sandwiches, wraps, soups, and salads as well as the usual assortment of sweets and hot drinks. What makes it stand out is the amazing, single-serving cheesecakes that always have you dying for more! My favorite is the Sea Salt Caramel, though Cookies and Cream and Red Velvet are close seconds. When in season, they make a mouthwatering Pumpkin Spice cheesecake that is the favorite of all my friends. By far, Capital City Cheesecake makes the best cheesecakes in the DC Metro Area. The soups and sandwiches are pretty good as well, especially the melts and chili. They also do some decent waffles on weekends (why just weekends, I don't know).

The cafe itself is pretty tidy and casual, with works of local area artists hanging on the walls. The place is often packed with locals either relaxing on one of the couches downstairs or chatting with friends and family at the tables on the raised first floor. There's outdoor seating on sunny days as well, though there always seems to be more people looking for tables than are available.

As of this review's writing, free WiFi is available on the basement floor during lunch hours.

I love everything about this place-- the food, the ambiance, the owners (who are sisters). My favorite is their turkey chili. I have lots of meetings there because it's cozy/comfortable (coaches downstairs) but spacious enough you can actually hear each other.
