The Museum no longer has a cafe. The re is a busy hamburger place next door that works great for families. It's a little pricy as are most restaurants in DC but it was tasty. There's a nicer place just across the street.

Worst coffee ever pretty much sums up our experience. Hot chocolate was poor too. We didn't try the food. Comfy seats and heating were the only pluses. The staff were fine but you had to get your own drinks after you paid so there wasn't...More

First of all, our lunch cost $60 for 4 quesadillas and 4 drinks... ridiculous for lunch. Two of us are vegetarians so we ordered the quesadillas with no chicken. However, instead of just not putting chicken on it and leaving everything else they completely changed...More

Located within the International Spy Museum, the Spy City Cafe has convenience going for it. If you want a quick meal before, during or after your museum visit then this works well. Otherwise, I just have to call it average. I had the cuban sandwich...More

We ate lunch at the Spy Cafe because it was convenient and a rain storm had just started. It's not the cleanest, the service isn't the best, but the food is good and reasonable. Since it was raining, we splurged for a couple of cookies...More

The service was slow and rude, they had many personal conversations and I interupted to find out when the food was coming and they reminded me that is why you have a number. The water glasses are the size of dixie cups for the bathroom....More

I have to admit that I did not have great expectations but, and I know this sounds silly, I had one of my best breakfasts at this little place-your-order-at-the-counter cafe. The scrambled eggs were not nuked into oblivion but were tender and nicely done. The...More

We had a nighmarish experience with roaches at lincolns Waffle House so we stopped in here for breakfast instead. Portions are moderate, but the price is really good compared to other places in the area. A good selection of beverages as well.

The food was good and priced reasonably. We were there at a time when they were not very busy so we had quick service. There is not a lot of variety but if you want something quick this is a good place to stop.
