Recommended by the staff at our hotel. We were very happy with the service and the food. Very casual as most of the seating is at the counter. The person that helped us was friendly and attentive. We were in and out in no time...More

This was a great restaurant. The servers were so upbeat and friendly. The place was packed and there were lines outside the door but the service is so fast that we seated pretty fast. The food was excellent - I especially loved the Blueberr pancakes....More

Not a chain, so we ate here. Pretty good standard food. Right near Ford's theater so works out well to go the theater and stop here for lunch.

Got seated very quickly despite a line out the door. Took a while for someone to stop by our table to take our order, but once we ordered the food arrived in about 5 minutes. Tight quarters in this restaurant though, which was tricky for...More

This is a great neighborhood breakfast place. If you like waffles, pancakes, eggs, etc. this is your place. There is nothing fancy here. Just good traditional breakfast fare in a fast paced but friendly place. If you are in DC and need breakfast be sure...More

Great service here. Breakfast was good, banana pancakes, waffles and omelette. Decent start to the day. In terms of location this is directly opposite Fords Theatre.

Being a local diner aficionado, we traveled out of our way to eat here. I was not impressed. The waffles were the one standout. I ordered waffles with two eggs and chicken wings. I haven't ever seen that combination on a menu before. Maybe there...More

I did not see Scrappie on the menu. I ate pancakes and bacon and it was very good. The place was very crowded but everyone ate and moved on so no one had to wait. It must be a local favorite and a hidden gem.

I don't recall anything on the menu specifying or highlighting gluten free bakery items. However, considering their helpful attitude, I would recommend calling them in advance and asking. They might offer a few things.

A little late on this response, but I walked by there on a Sunday morning in September and the line was out the door! People have found out about this place! However, on a weekday, 7:30 isn't too bad. It's also busy... More
