This is a good place for breakfast and they specialize in waffles. The staff is efficient and very friendly.

This is definitely a diner. We did not have to wait at 9:30 in the morning. It was a bit crowded and seating is cramped. The food was good. We paid about $40 for 4. My son had a sausage & cheese sandwich. The sausage was very good. My daughter and I split blueberry pancakes, potatoes, scrambled eggs, and bacon.... More

A buzzing diner run by a family affair I believe. We were seated quickly and handed menus, we asked other diners what they were eating or would recommend. We ended up having waffles, pancakes and eggs. The coffee was okay and hot. Plenty of prepackaged milk, butter, jam and syrup. All in all it was okay and a fun experience... More

I was super impressed by this place. I felt very historic visiting here - you're next to where Lincoln died and the view from the front bar is Ford's Theatre…very nice. This place is a diner and it operates as one - good, fast food with a smile. I got there about 8am on a Friday morning and there wasn't... More

My husband and I always make it a point to eat here when we visit D.C. This place has the best breakfast around at a fraction of the price. The family that runs it is awesome; and with their diverse menu options you are sure to leave with a smile on your face no matter what time of day you... More

Very Busy - Located across the street from the Ford Theatre. Not really fancy place more like a dinner. - There is a line out the door when we went. I like the waiter he made it for me.

Visiting DC before granddaughter skates during Caps game! Always look for local eateries when in unfamiliar towns and this one is a keeper!! I was worried when we first saw the exterior because it is a small cafe, but the food is very good and the customer service is even better! Directly across the street from Ford's Theater and walking... More

I love to visit local "diner" type breakfast places where you have a wait out the door! This place was NOT worth it! We ordered a broad range of items to include the famous waffle. It was all horrible with the exception of the banana pancake! Lumpy grits, manufactured ham, and an all around general taste of cheap Chinese fried... More

Been here twice already, and the chicken and waffles is amazing! But service is what makes this place so awesome, they make you feel like if you were part of the family and have been there a bunch of times!
