My wife and I used this for lunch when we were visiting DC recently. Good, plain food produced well and sold for reasonable prices. Yes, recommended.

Good for a quick meal. Excellent gyros. Not really expensive, but not burger king. Very few indoor tables.

This was a life saver for both great short order options and the convenience of having beverages and snacks close to our hotel.

Ran across the street from The Westin while in town for business. The food at The Westin is terrible and this place was a pleasant surprise. Fresh buffet, great selection of snacks, and the sandwiches made upon request looked amazing. Friendly staff and quick service. Highly recommend!

If staying in any of the hotels within a block radius, you will enjoy a quick and affordable breakfast at this cafe which is stocked with wonderful goodies, drinks, snacks and makes a fabulous breakfast sandwich.

Steps away from the Fairmont and Westin hotels. Great alternative to expensive hotel options and better than Starbuck's menu choices. Had breakfast and lunch there. Both very good.

The Uptowner Café is not fancy. It's a cross between a sandwich shop and a convenience store. But when I stopped in to get a sandwich to go on a Thursday evening, the service was quick and friendly, and the sandwich was delicious. They don't have many vegetarian options - just the Uptowner (fresh mozzarella and tomato on a baguette)... More
