The cafe is strategically located on Constitutional Avenue close to the Smithsonian Museums. It can get physically tiring visiting the museums and the cafe offers a quick coffee, cool drink or snack. In the cold weather it is a welcome avenue to ease oneself off...More

I had breakfast here every day and enjoyed it. Good quality American breakfast at a fair price. Looking for five-star waiter service? Go elsewhere. Looking for good quality American breakfast? Go here

Ordered a chicken wrap and it tasted okay. It'd be better if they're made the wrap differently that can prevent me from making a mess.

We had lunch at the Constitution Cafe. Although a little pricey and crowded, the food was good and the line went fast. I suggest someone find a table while the others stand in line. Tables are something that have to be fought for.
