Six of us had breakfast after laying wreaths in Arlington National cemetery. Renovations in process but there is a very good buffet with all breakfast options. Excellent coffee and orange juice. Service is very professional and friendly. Highly recommended for a nice leisurely meal

Staff was attentive without being overbearing and really nice too! Food was tasty - we both had salads and they were interesting and deeply satisfying. A quiet restaurant, highly recommended if in need of good food, good wine, and good conversation.

Brunch was delicious. They’re remodeling right now, but you would never know it. Staff was courteous and attentive. Food was delicious and fairly priced especially for being right on DuPont Circle. Would visit again. Coffee was rich and dark brew.
