This is right beside Ford's Theatre and has fried chicken and waffles and about everything else you could want for breakfast. Lots of locals and tourist in the breakfast spot. We rode our bicycle from Capitol Hill.

This place is terrible. Went with my daughter for lunch while sightseeing. Blueberry pancakes hard on the outside, raw in the middle. Sausage patty inedible. Dirty. Poor service. I don't typically give bad reviews but this one is well earned. Couldn't get out of there fast enough. Don't waste your time or $$.

Old time Diner style breakfast! Great chicken and waffles! Waited in line only 15 minutes on a Saturday morning and the meal was quick and delicious! Highly recommend!

Located across from Ford's theatre this small lunchonette is packed but not really sure why...dishes are plastic, eggs are almost raw, toast was cold and grits were lumpy. Very sad that we read other reviews and looked forward to eating here...better food at any diner😞

When we arrived there was a long line outside the shop, however it moved rather quickly. It's a small crowded area inside, so the only place to wait is on the outside and when seated you will possibly be seated with other patrons. The staff gets people in and out very quickly while delivering an excellent, hearty meal. We had... More

Small touristy type spot so expect a wait. But the food was very good and the staff are friendly and seem to be having a good time. The waffles are thin, crispy, and tasty. Definitely recommend.

Waffles were not so good, bacon eh, corn beef hash so so. Best part of the meal were the eggs. Line goes fast but I could have been just as happy somewhere else. Right next to Ford's Theatre so if you are in the area sure but I wouldn't go out of the way.

Finding places like Lincoln's Waffle Shop is always my favorite. A friend had recommended it to us otherwise I honestly probably would have walked right by with maybe not even noticing what it really was. We got lucky had didn't even have to wait in line, we got there late morning on a Monday so that was an added bonus!... More

Not exactly what I expected. This is a diner, breakfast is available all day, but there are other items on the menu. Staff was attentive - I believe I was overcharged, but was too tired to argue with them...My food was good, my daughter had the club sandwich - she said it was really good!

Thank Shannon R
