California scramble was a delight. Waiters are attentive and this is a fun space in Woodley Park — lots of windows for people watching! Outside seating in summer. Coffee: latte is nicely done; regular coffee is not refilled, you will need to order a second...More

Breakfasts options served all day. The hashbrown bowl is a great option! The atmosphere is also very nice with big windows letting in lots of light.

A lot of people go there on Saturday morning but they can handle quite a few. My experience has been 30-40 minutes. If you can you can send somebody ahead to sign in so everybody doesn't have to wait.
