Soapstone was a very good addition to the neighborhood, but it didn't seem to hit on the right business model soon enough. They are closing at the end of December 2018 and will leave a gap. Although the market area never developed as it might...More

This place is right near where I live - I probably go here about once a week for various reasons. What's nice about it is that it's (a) a specialty food and beverage shop; (b) a bar and grill; and (c) a community space. They...More

A bit disorganized (where to order what, where to pay - frequent visits help you learn the ropes). Food, coffee, ambiance, workers - all wonderful. Go there every time we visit DC - so convenient directly across from the Days Inn

Other than its convenient location to my residence and its outdoor seating area, I find little to recommend here. It is certainly not attractive on the inside. Their selection of both prepared foods & groceries is extremely limited. The service is merely ok, their prepared...More

This is a very good place for light meals. It is also a market which adds a little ambiance. It is comfortable, quiet enough to be able to read, friendly. I like it and will go back.
