I loved this restaurant. We sat outside- need to get there early- on a beautiful summer morning. We were with family (and they let our dog sit with us outside). They had a lady coming around with a big jug of sangria with various fruits...More

Yep. I’m _that_ person. There were so many tasty things on the menu that I went back. And back. And back again. The outside patio is delightful if Al Fresco is in town. When we got caught in unexpected showers outside, the servers really scampered...More

If you want a nice sit down brunch, this is great. Good coffee, pastries, and other brunch options. Nice outdoor seating. Expensive (not that bad for DC).

Great cakes and coffees. Also good food. Nice for breakfast. There is also a patio. Rather pricey, fair service.

Went for lunch with family and friends. The atmosphere is happy and inviting and the food isnt bad either. Excellent steak, scrumptious deserts and drinks. Great place to go for a day out. Prices are medium to high but its worth it..

My daughter likes this little cafe in an alley in Georgetown. One wall is all glass opening up to a courtyard with a fountain. In the summer, they have seating outside. But not tonight when we were there. It was raining. The desserts looked tempting...More

I really like the ambience of this place -- nice, lots of light, clean. For breakfast, there's not much on the menu that this place offers. I was disappointed with the selection. I ordered the egg and ham dish which was okay -- nothing spectacular...More

No - they don't take them, but we went on a Sunday about noon and had only a ten minute wait.

Forget all the cliches about heavy Austrian fare served by waiters in lederhosen. Leopold is about as Euro trendy as it gets, with an all-day coffee and drinks bar, an architecturally hip dining space, and a chic little patio complete with a minifountain. Food is pared-down Mitteleuropean: mushroom tart, crisp schnitzel paired with peppery greens, an endive salad with mustard dressing. In the middle of a design-obsessed alley just off of M Street, the cafe draws an artsy city crowd that's content to sit and watch the scene evolve, just as it's done in Europe. Brunch is a particularly popular setting for such people-watching manna, and the neat-as-a-pin breakfast is available daily until 4 pm. The perfect oasis for breakfast, lunch, dinner or anything in between. They have a very respectable wine list that compliment all the dinner specials. Reservations are taken for dinner only, starting at 5pm.
