Stopped in on a trip to D.C. because it looked interesting. We were not disappointed. Menu is varied to suit many tastes. Peppered tuna appetizer was great. Mussels dinner was very good. A bit skimpy on the bread to soak up broth is the only...More

Back room for a kid celebration. Staff was really nice. They must have gotten backed up. Very long wait. Front room looked nice. Given all the active kids everyone must have wished the kitchen would get it together.

Cafe Deluxe is one of my go to brunch spots in DC. The food is a good classic American breakfast. For those looking for something dairy free(like me) they are very helpful. I get the deluxe breakfast with fried eggs and fruit instead of toast....More

I live nearby and go to Cafe Deluxe about once a month, usually on Mondays when some of the wines are half price. You have to ask for the Wine Night list. The regular list is generic and overpriced for what is offered. Pretty good...More
