We enjoyed the coffee and French tarts, while the lunch goers had their sandwiches and crepes. Quick service and helpful staff. Great for lunch, and good for a bite between museum visits.

A great option for delicious and tasty food near the national Mall, and also good for business lunches and drinks. Plenty of healthy options, and very reasonable prices. The service we had was excellent. Bakery also had many delicious options.

Took four hungry teens here after a hot day of touring on bike! We enjoyed every bite of our french baguette sandwiches. Blondies for dessert were a treat! Friendly staff, clean shop, affordable lunch!

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...More
