This has to the best place for Breakfast and lunch, I loved these, the Awreck sandwich is amazing, and the Sausage and Egg for Breakfast is so nice. make sure you visit one of these shops, they are a chain like Subway, but miles better.

Great location...on the way to or from the White House, the Mall and Connecticut Avenue. You choose what you want on your sandwich. Enjoy hot coffee and good soups. Reasonably priced...friendly staff.
