Grabbed a quick breakfast with a friend before we went downtown. Convenient location at Woodley Park and near hotels. Reasonable price for families.

Open City is very family friendly. We took seven kids under the age of seven and had a nice experience. Having said that, the food (at dinner time) was just okay. Nothing terrible, but nothing deserving of 4+ star rating. The next morning we stopped by for coffee because it was the closest local place. Then we figured out where... More

This breakfast, brunch favorite has a broad selection, eggs, meats, huevos rancheros, hash brown bowls with eggs on top, omelets, pancakes, French toast, etc. I chose three separates on first visit, one egg, slice of ham and pancake. A mug of coffee is $2.50, without refill which is a minus. The second visit I ordered French toast: excellent! Three fat... More

Close in location to our rental and conference. Very friendly staff. My kids loved the steamed honey steamers and animal crackers.

Breakfast on an early, cold Sunday morning. Had the Reuben Latkas (potato pancakes topped with slices of excellent corned beef, two poached eggs, and salsa verde; served with a generous portion of fresh fruit). Unique, delicious and filling. Jill was my friendly and attentive server. Happy, as always, that I came. Just a note on why I love Open City.... More

A nice place for a quick bite. Good service and great pizzas. Don't sit next to windows as the ac makes it drafty.

Lots of items to choose on this menu, but settled on the California omelette, which was excellent, accompanied by English muffin (or your choice of wheat, white or rye) and hash brown (a bit disappointing as in not very hot and just a rectangle that was hard not to believe was frozen but a few moments before), but the omelette...

I asked the waiter if I should have the pizza or burger. He said both were great but he liked the pizza better. Good call. I had the fresh pie pizza and it was cooked perfectly. It had a crunchy crust and hot cheese. It easily could have served two people so I would recommend one pizza and split a... More
