Stop in here for a breakfast that is very good. They have a menu that works for everyone. Eggs, pastries, oatmeal, fruit,.… and good coffee.

I often go there during my business trips to DC. It is a very cosy and quite place not far from Uniion Station. Staff is very helpful. Coffee and sandwiches and pastries extremely good.

We stayed at the Phoenix Park Hotel and came here for breakfast every morning because it was so excellent! I highly recommend the strawberry lemon pancakes and the commuter croissant. Excellent place!

We stopped into Corner Bakery Cafe to grab my wife some soy coffee. She is vegan and the soy option was appreciated. The service also was excellent. My wife did say the latte was a bit sweet for her taste though it was very good.
