Stopped in with my little nephews for some hot chocolate. I was excited to find that they serve drinking chocolate, which is just like they serve in Belgium. It comes with a small bowl of warm milk and a small pitcher of delicious dark melted...More

The food is always fresh and good. For DC location the prices are typical. Cannot beat the location. You can have a simple coffee, breakfast, lunch or a snack.

We had a lovely brunch over the Thanksgiving holiday. The service was good and the food also good. The standard bakery restaurant menu, not overly exciting but tasty.

I am a huge fan of Le Pain Quotidien in Europe but I found this one even better, very cozy and great service. I was in Washington on vacation and we had breakfast here twice, the omelette is delicious! I strongly recommend it

I loved the looks of the cafe, very European with “healthy” offerings. I ordered a green smoothie which was ok, I love green smoothies but this one was a bit too bitter and expensive, small cup for around $9 US. I ordered a ham and...More
