    Absolutely obsessed with this place. The coffee is wonderful. Grab the "Walk Of Shame" breakfast burrito. Also if there is a wait, sit at the bar close to the kitchen.

    Had the croissant which was light and buttery. You can watch the bakers in action while you wait for a to go order. Also one of the most beautiful espresso machines I've seen- hammered copper.

    Huge menu and I've never had a bad meal. Peanut butter bacon burger is my favorite but the breakfast items like chicken and biscuits are also top notch.

    Get one of the homemade pop-tarts or a donut while you wait. The tomato soup is a longstanding family recipe and perfect with a grilled cheese on a cold day. Tasty and unpretentious.

    The Bitches Say: A. Get to Ted's Bulletin early for a table, and try not to overdose on sugary treats before diving into brunch. Awarded with the Best Fat Kid Brunch and Best Pastries awards for 2013!

    Good breakfast-for-one at the counter. Sit at the front counter for natural light and a quieter experience. Pickup a pop-tart to-go and grab a drink to wash it down from a nearby coffee shop.

    Ted's Bulletin has a vintage corner bar featuring several "Adult" Milkshakes, and an array of delicious, gourmet food options. My personal fave: Their HOMEMADE pop tarts and twix bars! So delicious!

    Get the house smoked salmon on the cedar plank. The side of Brussel sprouts and the mash and gravy are awesome. End with the 4 later carrot cake & white russian adult milkshake with oreo YUM.

    The kindest people work here. So friendly, and the food is fantastic! I want to try everything on the menu. Peanut butter bacon pop tarts, and boozy milkshakes. Need I say more?

    Sit at one of the two counters! The bartenders behind the counters are incredibly friendly and chatty. Plus, you can get seated and have food in front of your face much quicker.

    One of our favorite places for lunch, be warned though, go earlier or you'll be waiting a while to get seated. This location is bigger than Eastern Market at least, so probably not as long as there.

    The wait was far less than expected for a newly opened joint! The host staff kept us informed the entire time. Service was friendly and fairly quick. Food is just as delicious as Capitol Hill.

    Yum! Noisy but still fun. Excellent lamb burger. Highly recommended. They allow substitutions like salad for fries. Avacado vinaigrette dressing is superb. Donut? Ummm.

    If there's ever a line (and there certainly will be for quite sometime, I imagine), try to sit at the bar. Full menu and quick service. Perfect meal.

    The pop tarts are fun, but I was a little disappointed. My main entree, however, was amazing. The entire space is gorgeous too. Just be prepared to wait for that table.

    Best reuben ingredients in DC! But I'm still flummoxed as why it was served kraut/bread side down (thus making the whole sandwich soggy)

    Great burgers, including the veggie one! Save room for a huge milkshake at the end. Preferably an extremely chocolate one. The PB&J shake was just ok.

    The cinnamon bun is delicious but more like the size of an infant's head than mine. I'd order it over the pop tarts, which are a bit over-hyped.
  • Matt F.

    Please do yourself a favor and get the Cinnamon Roll as big as your head and split it with the table. You won't regret it

  • Derek G.
    One of the best family restaurants in DC. The adult milkshakes and homemade pop tarts alone are worth the trip!

    I am so sad they got rid of the Bipartisan combo (half sandwich/salad/or soup). Obviously a sign of the end of bipartisanship in general.
