    Great brunch spot. Amazing food (I got the veggie burger with cheddar hashbrowns and ate every bite). Small area but with little to no wait, I can't complain!

    Brunch! Reasonable prices and homey yet "from the farm" food. Service can be hit or miss but we keep going back.

    I love this restaurant’s feel, oh and the food. The laid back neighborhood vibe is so comfortable. Café St. Ex’s commitment to the community and local farmers is just part of what makes them so great Read more

    The bartenders are great. Friends with several of them, and they're the coolest people.

    Great cocktails on the first floor - come in around 11 for a nice drink, then head downstairs for a dance crowd that really knows how to have a good time!

    Mole enchiladas are delicious!

    Funky little place. I liked their curry alright, wasn't expecting it to be noodles and not rice though!

    Round about midnight on a Friday this place is balls hot.

    Jen Romba · July 13, 2013

    It’s the perfect mix of casual and cool. Monday-Thursday we love to lounge at the bar and sip wine with our beau du jour. On the weekends, the downstairs dance floor is a great place for a party. Read more · July 1, 2013

    The mood of this place certainly changes throughout the day—from a cheery and bright brunch spot to a rocking after-dark dance spot in Gate 54, the basement nightclub. Read more · July 1, 2013

    The closest you'll get to a frat basement without being in a frat basement.

    This restaurant has improved over the years. That is a great thing. It's always been a wonderful spot.

    Right now I'm listening to Forster for teh Peeples "Pumped Up Kicks". Mad props to the DJ.

  • Keegan

    The main bar is perfect for a weeknight date. Head outside if it's not too hot or cold and enjoy the tables. The downstairs on weekend nights with a DJ can get pretty wild.

    Long and very busy worxdays, now It's Miller Time.

    Really friendly staff. Also, downstairs exists and it's better than upstairs.

  • ManBites(Chicago)Dog L.

    BLT and the burger (rare with mushroom and cheddar) - excellent. So was the pâté. Service was spotty but food made up for it. Great Lakes brew was solid as well!

    the bartender likes to be entertained

    Caramel apple dessert is insane. Not for vegans. Porky deliciousness! Gracious service to boot

    Gabriela Schneider · October 20, 2012
  • Jim

    This place can't decide if it's the local bar or the U St. Hotness, but in a way it's both. The beer selection is eclectic, the menu is inviting, and the bartenders are both.

    Jim · October 19, 2012

    Try the PranQster! Oh wait it's out.. Try the Maisel! Oh wait it's broken... Try the Bud Light.

    They have the unsympathetic policy to only seat your party when everyone is present

    Party in the basement.

    Stephanie Ghoston · November 4, 2011
  • Laura G A.

    The food is a bit overpriced, but the basement bar makes for a very fun night. Watch out during the summer, though. It can get very hot down there very fast.

    Laura G Adams · September 25, 2011
  • Kenneth W.

    Enjoy waiting hours on end for a drink
