I recently dined here for a friend's birthday brunch. A few people ordered the Bottomless Mimosas...but the service was so bad, in that the waiter did not pay attention to whether their glasses were empty, and they ended up only having 1 mimosa. The A/C...More

An excellent spot for brunch, where I'd recommend the signature waffles and chicken. Waffle is light and tasty, chicken perfectly fried (and choice of white or dark meat). Attentive service. Unlike many DC brunch places, not overly slammed during peak hours.

My friend had a silent soirée here. It was a nice cafe sized location. The bartenders were entertaining. The chicken and waffles were to die for. Seriously that chicken was seasoned to perfection. The shrimp and grits were decent. I think it would of been...More

We met some friends at Creme-La Bonne for dinner last week because we had heard the mussels were good. Well they weren't. There was so much sand and grit in them that several of us paused on our first or second bite to make sure...More
