It was perfect to eat Jewish food before going to the holocaust museum. It helped me appreciate the Jewish culture before even going in. The food tasted great and was healthy, but I ate too much and felt sick the whole time going through the museum. So don't be afraid to share!! I wish I had someone to share the... More

When you're in DC you absolutely must set aside half a day to experience the Holocaust Memorial Museum. Admission is free (tickets must be reserved in advance) and no price paid would be high enough! For those who might be on the fence as to whether or not the Holocaust ever happened...a walk through these hallowed halls will convince you... More

This is a somber journey that documents man's inhumanity to man. It is well done and does not sugar coat the horrific events. I suggest purchasing your passes ahead of time. Admission is free.

Ask staff where it is, hidden little cafe for a coffee or small meal, quiet, small, a real great place for a break on the mall. Not fancy but if you want a break a simple oasis.REALLY,!!

This museum is one that you must see. If there was any doubt in your mind of the horrors that one man can inflict on another, this will answer all your questions. It is a somber and reflective place where you can come to grips with just a little of what our soldiers found when they liberated the camps. I... More

We had a hard time finding this cafe which is in a separate building from the museum and is not well marked (Only small letters on the door). You have to go through a security check again before entering the cafe, which is somewhat small. The food was pretty decent, although a little pricey for what you got. On the... More

The food was excellent and service was good. As it is so close to the Holocaust Museum I hope profits go to the Museum.

We had not eaten all day and were trying to see all the sights. This was a good way to catch a quick bite and then see the exhibits. The food is not spectacular but was not terrible.

We ate at the Holocaust Memorial Cafe before our visit because it was cold and raining. With that as a backdrop, we ate soup for the warmth. We found nothing special about the food, it simply served the purpose due to the conditions. You should also know that this "nothing special" food was also expensive. Very expensive. Unless faced with... More

It doesn't matter what your nationality is, everyone while in DC should visit this museum. Museum makes you realize how lucky we are in the US today.
