It was pouring rain and this restaurant was a quick trip from the Woodley Park/Zoo metro stop (which I really appreciated considering the weather). The way it's set up, we were still able to eat in the sun room and get a little fresh air...More

Although the menu isn't expansive, it is a great, hidden gem! Firstly, it stays open quite late so that is a good thing. The restaurant itself offers indoor and outdoor seating. The food tasted fresh and was quite good. The pricing was a tad expensive...More

We ordered a pepperoni pizza which was mediocre at best. Soggy crust, tasteless cheese, doughy crust. Worse yet, when we asked for the usual parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes the waiter looked at us like "you want what??" Went off and brought back the...More

This is my second time to the Woodley Park location. On this visit we dined in the side enclosed greenhouse. The windows were open, so it did feel as you were dining on the front patio. There is also a main dining room inside. This...More

Excellent food, friendly if occasionally chaotic service, good value -- a great neighborhood restaurant that seemed to appreciate its neighborhood clientele. Recent visits suggest that this is no longer the case. Menus have changed; fewer offerings,...More

Not great choices for gluten-free. The servers change every day. Some are better than others, but in general, they are helpful. The steel-cut oats are good, and they do a good job with eggs. Their hash browns are formed into a block and deep fried....More

This restaurant is a minute walk from the hotel at which I stayed, so I thought I would give it a try for dinner. Although it was very busy, the host sat me immediately at a requested table outdoors. I expected service to be slow,...More

This coffee shop was a godsend. We were staying at the Omni across the street but the prices at the hotel for food was too much. This place had great breakfast options (from granola and yogurt to full on 3 eggs, meat, potatoes type breakfasts)...More

The decaf latte was the only thing worth the stop. Servers were rude, got the order wrong, didn't feel like correcting it. Veggie burger was dry no sauce tomato or condiments, wet torn bun, asked for yam fries, got potato fries, asked that they be...More

Food was great. Service was very slow. The atmosphere is really neat and was right across the street from our hotel.

A lot of people go there on Saturday morning but they can handle quite a few. My experience has been 30-40 minutes. If you can you can send somebody ahead to sign in so everybody doesn't have to wait.
