Love my coffee in a real cup and this place does it right. Piping hot, friendly staff, and a delicious spinach and mushroom quiche. Nice relaxing mid morning breakfast with tables so I could journal and think.

We stopped here for breakfast before our early morning tour at the White House, which is about a 10 minute walk. The pastries are fresh, tasty, and inexpensive; the service friendly and quick; and the ambience relaxed and inviting.

Stopped by here for lunch on the go. The staff was friendly, service was fast, the sandwich was good, and the soup was delicious. Found a quiet table to do some work and enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere.

I don't understand why people shop at this bakery. Everything looks great but nothing tastes great, and the prices are very high. I prefer the bakery at Safeway for half the price!
