This has become my "local" for happy hour, lunch, and dinner with friends. I almost always eat at the, because of the friendly bar staff as well as friendly patrons. They have a discount card that provides a 10% credit towards future purchases.

We rely on Cafe Deluxe when we are in NW Washington anywhere near the National Cathedral. Speaking as a DC native, good Washington restaurants are STILL hard to find. Cafe Deluxe, inspired by the French bistro, provides very good comfort food and very good service...More

Cafe Deluxe is one of my go to brunch spots in DC. The food is a good classic American breakfast. For those looking for something dairy free(like me) they are very helpful. I get the deluxe breakfast with fried eggs and fruit instead of toast....More
