This is a little gem in the big capital! We had lunch with friends and order salad, sandwich, soup, quiche, and everyone was happy. The staff is quite friendly and accommodating. The environment is very pleasant both inside or outside. Perfect spot for lunch!

Just steps away from the Capitol Building, this adorable French cafe lives up to its hype. Since DC can be quite sweltering in the summer time we got iced lattes and omelets which were perfect to cool us off before our day began.

Great food, high quality ingredients, organic, great staff, tasty ! I'd even say that this the best kept secret in DC. Freshly squeezed juice was awesome, Omelet was great, fruit cup was amazing... they pay great attention to the details.

We had breakfast and it was a bit slow but that is because they two ladies make each item as it is ordered. The quiche was fine. The fruit a bit wilted. The iced coffee good. and the chocolate espresso cookie was fabulous.
