Businesses like to call refer to themselves as an "institution." The word cultivates an image of stability and reliability. Most are faking it, but Reeves Restaurant and Bakery is the real thing. It's a Washington landmark with a long history that recently moved to a new location in downtown. Unfortunately the new location feels like a chain family restaurant or a cafeteria. But the food is still as good and the staff, just as cranky.

Reeves has many loyal lunch-time customers who work downtown but tends to be dead on the weekends. The restaurant (in the basement) has little ambience but the bakery (at street level) is usually filled with long-time customers picking up cake orders for parties. The specialize in unusual kids birthday cakes like the ever-popular "Barbie Doll" cake (a real doll with a cake skirt) The cakes are very very good with sweet fluffy icing, and syrupy fillings. Their pies are delicious as well. Reeves is not where you'd want to take someone for a date, but you could pick up dessert here and eat it in the park. I guarantee you'll get a good night kiss.
