I really enjoyed my breakfast omelet and thick slices of bread. This was just the farmer's breakfast I was looking for, and I left completely satiated. I'm glad I'm not watching my carbs because between the bread and the spreads and toppings, I'd have been bummed to not partake. I'll be back next time I'm in town for sure.

My husband and I went here on a Saturday and it was fairly crowded. We were both not pleased with the portion of food served. I got the French toast with berries and there were honestly like five berries on the plate with it. The service was just average and chances are you'll be touching elbows with the table right...

I was initially put off when we first arrived as were seated in extraordinarily cramped table in back of restaurant. We were offered seating at the "big" shared table, which was a much better option. The menu has delicious and different fare. Our entire family enjoyed everything we ordered. Our server was attentive and friendly. Definitely recommend!

This is a higher end chain restaurant, I have eaten at a couple in Manhattan, this one in Alexandria is pretty much the same so it is nice to know that they are consistent. I had the egg white, mushroom and goat cheese omelette which was served with nice pieces of bread and a salad. I enjoyed it, but it... More

Great for breakfast/brunch. Very tasty, very fresh, wide variety. If you are in Washington D.C. you owe it to yourself to try this place! My wife and I have been twice and loved it both times. This is a must try.

The location and atmosphere are excellent. We had delicious break fast. The bread basket was small and was not hot,although it was fresh. The salad are fresh and good. I liked the avocado touch with bread.

We were here last year and it wasn't too bad... this year, it seemed very grungy, dirty (the bathroom was pretty disgusting) and the food was not of the same caliber as we are used to at LPQ. To boot, it seems to have been completely taken over by families with babies... no longer somewhere you can go for a... More
