    Wonderful breakfast foods and other foods throughout the day. One of my favorite late night coffee or food spots when you just want to chat and eat.

    Mushroom pizza was pretty good
  • Khalil L.
    Good ambiance & service overshadowed by subpar food experience. Breakfast of bacon, eggs and hash browns had to be prepared 3 times (not hot) before canceling order altogether.
  • Brittany B.
    Excellent cocktails and a great indoor/outdoor space

    Incredible pancakes and large breakfast. Great coffee as well.

    I do not recommend it, menu was not interesting. The staff were not friendly and the service was poor. Cafe was not fresh.with that price, Omni hotel has a great buffet with 25$ an lots of options.

    This favorite brunch destination in Woodley Park is also a great place to surf the web at any hour during breakfast, lunch or dinner. Choices range from buttermilk waffles to bacon-wrapped meatloaf.
