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.

This is a little gem in the big capital! We had lunch with friends and order salad, sandwich, soup, quiche, and everyone was happy. The staff is quite friendly and accommodating. The environment is very pleasant both inside or outside. Perfect spot for lunch!

I stumbled upon Le Bon Cafe in January while walking from Garfield Park to the Capitol for the Women's March. It was jam packed inside and out, but my travel partner and I were willing to wait. We got in line (at the curb!), and...More

Just steps away from the Capitol Building, this adorable French cafe lives up to its hype. Since DC can be quite sweltering in the summer time we got iced lattes and omelets which were perfect to cool us off before our day began.

Great food, high quality ingredients, organic, great staff, tasty ! I'd even say that this the best kept secret in DC. Freshly squeezed juice was awesome, Omelet was great, fruit cup was amazing... they pay great attention to the details.
