Lots of scrumptious sweets, decadent cakes, bold coffees and interesting sandwiches. The presidential sweets cookie is worth its' weight in gold--but forget about counting calories, just go for it! While the bakery is small, it has ample comfortable seating with WiFi to work while you munch or sip.

okay selection, nothing exclusive or spectacular and exceedingly expensive, though location is convenient, parking is horrible

This place is great. A small, independent coffee shop that is manned by real down to earth people serving great food and coffee. What more is there to say? The key lime tart was delicious and the coffee was the best I'd tasted all trip - better than Starbucks

prices are high for the quakity . I work cross the street from one nd that's the only reason I ever shop there. the coffee is Starbucks prices for less quality. cakes can be great though. they have a pretty good strawberry shortcake and some of their chocolate cakes are great too.

The drip coffee was great. Service very nice, friendly, and fast. lemon poppyseed cake was kind of stale. Also it was cheap!

We were visiting the Law Enforcement on Sunday and wanted a quick lunch. Went into the National Building Museum and found this gem. Sandwiches were fresh cookies were fabulous. The price was right.

one cookie - the snickerdoodle was good but the lemon was a throwaway after the first bite. (the description said it was crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside). My experience was just too crunchy and not too lemony.

Thank nancyesca
