This is a great neighborhood restaurant, especially if you live in the U Street/Columbia Heights area. There are lots of vegetarian and vegan choices as well for your non-meat eating friends. The chicken panini is probably my favorite sandwich with its spicy mayonaise and the Mediterranean burger is amazing, using pita bread instead of a bun with a flavorful meat patty and goat cheese. The pizza is alright, but I would probably recommend that you stick to the sandwiches, burgers, and salads.

Pros: Good food and drinks

Cons: Food takes a while, usually crowded, mediocre service

This is a great place to go at any time of the day. The food is really good from breakfast to dinner and best yet there is always something going on at the restaurant.

The food here is just OK, but the prices are very reasonable, so it's a good place to go for cheap eats. The sandwiches are good, but the entrees are meh. They have a good space for live performances, and the bookstore section is cool.

There is always something happening no matter what day of the week you go. It's always busy and the atmosphere is great! The food is good and it's very affordable.

Great food and desserts. Fun environment. The place to be for poetry readings/performance. The wait staff did a good job catering to our large writers' conference group. A star on the literary and culinary scene.

While one location is in DC, there is another in Shirlington village in Arlington.

The food is wonderful--- many vegetarian and vegan options as well as something for the omnivores as well. The menu contains so many different options, it is hard to choose.

Great drinks (the mango martini was insanely good!).

The ambiance of the place is intoxicating.

Check it out!
