Cute little coffee shop for a quick DC breakfast. Tight seating to kill some time, or have a quick breakfast. Plenty of any type of drinks, good breakfast choices and a congressman (just picking up his morning coffee), too.

We happened onto this place and enjoyed it a lot. Delicious omelets, waffles, fruit crisp, and other items. Good coffee. We overheard someone saying they come here every Saturday. I can see why.

Great breakfast choices, good coffee and chai tea. The service was good and we were are to get a perfect seat by the window. The portions were adequate, not huge but good. Overall I would recommend Le Bon

This was an unexpected treasure of a find. The lattes were much better than many other DC coffee house recs. The salads were fresh and delish. No one left unhappy; we all agreed we'd go back again.

Great atmosphere. Quick service. Good food at a good price. Stopped by here with a few other friends while visiting DC and went back two other times while we were there. Great breakfast options -- had the breakfast sandwich and the quiche... both were great.
