    The bakery here is much much better than you would think a grocery store bakery is. The bagels, foccacia, and rolls are all delicious, as are the cupcakes and pastries. Read more

    I've always been scared to buy salad bar & go to a clerk as I thought they'd pack it carelessly. Alas, they truly care to keep it upright. Nice job!

    There is a self check-out line near Starbucks that tends to not have a line. You won't get a parking validation there though.

    Wow. It WAS possible for Southwest to get more gentrified. I miss the old Safeway. It felt like an actual neighborhood supermarket, because it was.

    At first glance this looks like a pretty good Safeway. Then you try to function inside and there are alot of questions and frustrations. Shows a poorly managed store.

    They CONSTANTLY close the sandwich bar early & CONSTANTLY run out of things everywhere.

    True story. Tons of cops. Always think you are trying to steal.

    Service at the deli counter is so freaking slow; but the guys in the meat/fish counter are actually quite helpful

    We practically survived off the deli food for 3 days here. Not much else around. Right next to Waterfront SEU Metro!

    Careful with disaster planning here. The new Safeway is bigger, which only means more people in line!

    Often disappointing in terms of selection, now & then this store holds surprises, like heirloom tomatoes.

    This is one of the best Safeway's in DC.

    The sandwich station is slow as shit. Budget a minimum of 20 minutes if you would like a cold sandwich. Not nearly enough staffers.

    Worst checkout lines in DC. If you're here, you must be desperate. Free underground parking is nice though...

    Don't even bother trying to order from the deli. There's never anyone back there and if they are there, they ignore you.

    There was a hot girl in an Italian Stallion t-shirt. I wasn't even mad when the deli messed up my sandwich. Again.

    If you're looking for anything organic fresh produce, don't even try here. Horrible produce, shelves empty, lettuce dried out. Gross!
