This small quaint restaurant provided a delicious meal. It was so good, I couldn’t put my fork down. The salmon was cooked to perfection. It was flaky and moist which melted in my palate. Just heavenly.

Great breakfast (try the Juanita’s breakfast for a terrific authentic flavor), great coffee, authentic neighborhood feel, cool music, great vibe, and good prices. You just can’t find a better breakfast in DC.

Small and laid back defines Highlands. The food is excellent, staff attentive, and service is unreal quick(by the time you order and sit food is on the way). All entrees around $10-12. Nice murals on walls to muse at, good music, and alcohol.
