    The breakfast food is great here. It is an unpretentious spot to get a good classic breakfast. However, be aware the service is less than par. Make sure to double check your order before leaving!!

    I went to the cafe yesterday and had a great mint tea and raisin cinnamon bagel. The staff is wonderful.

    All the sanwiches I've had here are yummy. The BLT on rye is amazing, but the chicken salad has a little too much tarragon for my taste.

    Best coffee on U, and all day breakfast. Don't waste your time/money at Starbucks.

    The Bitches Say: A. U Street Cafe is a solid, classic D.C. local breakfast haunt.

    The food is solid, but generally overpriced. The wifi can be troublesome as well. I suggest Ecolate or Love Cafe instead.

    Painfully bad at almost everything: service to food to tea - I don't plan to risk it with the coffee

    Please refrain from having a two hour Skype conversation. This girl almost started a hipster riot and got lots of angry stares.

    This is a free WiFi zone but you have to get a code from the cashier at the time of purchase and I'm told there is a time limit :-/

    Mediocre servings and a bit pricey; I'd opt for some of the other smashing cages in the area
