The pre fixe brunch is a great deal! The atmosphere is pretty cool - modern, ambient noise moderate, and you can catch any game anytime! Staff are super friendly and patient when it's hard to decide what delicious options to choose!

It is 2.5 blocks to metro escalator at the corner of 9th and G street. It takes me 2-3 minutes.
