Absolutely fantastic food & atmosphere! Ordered the dinner deal, 2 appetizers, 2 entrees & a dessert with a pitcher of beer for around $70. Everything was deliscious! Recommend the truffle popcorn, Brussel sprouts, jalapeno hush puppies, honey fried chicken & beef tenderloin. Cannot wait to visit again! If you are in DC do not miss this little gem!

The food was delicious! All 5 of us loved our food. The server was great and the food was served in good time. Loved the vibe and would go back for drinks and apps with couples or with the family again.

Great spot on P street across from Whole Foods. Didn't have a reservation so had to wait about 15 minutes around 2p. It was raining so we were limited to indoor tables only. Here is a tip-the lounge area is full service and if a chair is open you can grab it without waiting. We ended up eating at the... More

Everything was outstanding, starting with the coffee. Highly recommend the blueberry pancakes, the spinach/mushroom/cheddar omelette, and the steak and eggs. Very tasty! Service is casual yet exceptional. Also this place has a great vibe. Definitely our new go to for breakfast in DC.

We had an anniversary dinner here and we loved it! Our waiter (Daniel) was lovely and helped us with food choices. I have to eat GF and he was wonderful communicating with the kitchen to ensure I was ok. The food was yummo! I can especially recommend the Brussels sprouts (that they made GF for me)! A really laid back,... More

Enjoyed a hearty and dog friendly breakfast outside on the patio. Staff was friendly and attentive. What's better than sitting outside enjoying a morning espresso?

I went here for brunch after visiting some D.C. Monuments on Spring Break 2017, the waiter was great and made every attempt to connect with his tables. I enjoyed the crab cakes hollandaise, it was tasty. I cleaned my plate. My partner enjoyed his meal as well. We sat outside, the weather was gorgeous and the ambiance perfect for brunch!... More

Good service, good food,decent prices. We each ordered different entrees and tried a bite of each. I believe the best was the EatWell breakfast sandwich with fruit. Very tasty. The bread on the sandwich was a meal in and of itself. The blueberry pancakes were a bit flat and needed a bit of salt added to the batter for my... More

Laid back place with great service and excellent breakfast choices. We went for a late breakfast on a weekday and the place was not too crowded. Would love to go back.
