If you want breakfast lunch or a snack this is the place to visit. There's something there for everyone. Located inside a building with some businesses.

Arrived at 11:00 right when they open for lunch. A co-worker had the French dip. I had crepes along with the French onion soup. No complaints. The crepes were excellent! Good lunch prices too!

I work close to this location and I enjoy their offerings. The restaurant is French-inspired and has a lot of delicious baked goods and good lunch options. However, if you arrive just a little too late (as in, any time after 12:30 PM), there's a good chance that they've run out of whatever it is that you wanted to order.... More

Started out my day on the National Mall here. They have a nice selection of breakfasts for reasonable prices. Ana whipped me up some scrambled eggs, bacon, and roll, which hit the spot.

I had a great lunch here with my mom today. I got a turkey and cheese clasic sandwich and she had her regular sandwich. It was delicious.

The food was good, but it was fairly expensive. There are food trucks outside, but the atmosphere is really nice in this restaurant.

We ate here several times while we stayed at the Holiday Inn Washington-Capitol nearby. The food was very good, and reasonably priced. They have a bakery-cafe, an area for special events, an outdoor patio, and a restaurant with a bar. We preferred the restaurant as it was quieter than most of the other eateries nearby and the food was always... More

Right off the DC Metro and a couple blocks from the National Mall. This is a great place for lunch but expect to wait a bit. The staff does a great job getting people in and out but welcome to DC there are a lot of people here, right? One side of the cafe are the bakery items that will... More

A short block south of the Smithsonian Air and Space museum. Want McDonald's or great French food? They have two restaurants in the same building. One a cafe we ate at, the other a low key sit down place. Very good sandwiches, soups and pastries. Same chef does sit down restaurant which is not crazy expensive.

I had a chance to visit this cafe on April 21 and it was packed but the staff at the kitchen handled it professionally. However, the waitress was very slow and not attentive. She never checked back and never refilled my drink and took her forever to get me the check. However, The food was good and it was served... More
