Washington DC is such town with so many things to do but be sure to put this gem on your list! I sat at the bar and had the BEST bloody Mary I've ever had. The rim was coated with something I couldn't place... Turns...More
We loved this place. Our server was friendly and helpful, really on his game. The huge menu provided LOTS of health minded options. Our meals were tasty and filling, and afterwards we didn't feel gross and overstuffed. They source locally and clearly take pride in...More
This is a cool place located in a good part of town. The selection was good. What makes this place so special is the ambiance. Very hip and literate. Fun place to feel like a 60's beatnik.
Well worth a visit.
Definitely one of our favorite restaurants from our trip. They have a ton of vegan options, which are insanely delicious. And the atmosphere is very cool. One half of the place is a book/poetry store and then there are couches/tables to eat at. So sad...More
A well-known historical and cult place, a colorful and very interesting interior that "sends instruction".
If you want a more urban place, with lots of different people-welcome.
Service is good, a little more waiting for food or drink. Interesting place.
Ps.. Green salad could better...More
Our son took us for brunch. The food was fantastic with a cool atmosphere. One can shop in the bookstore while waiting for your table.
If you want to eat at a non chain restaurant, I highly recommend this place.
Bookstore, restaurant, entertainment. Excellent menu options for everyone, including vegan options.
Although not V/VG, my soup was flavorful and filling and my rustic grilled cheese with bacon and tomato was the best I've had. Everyone in the group was very happy with their food.
There are still progressives in Washington, DC and they all eat at Busboys and Poets. It is one of my favorite neighborhood places - their sandwiches are particularly terrific - their staff is wonderfully friendly - and the atmosphere is inspiring.
So, I'm no hipster, but you can't argue with great food. My buddy and I were seated quickly and got quick, friendly service. I ordered some basic eggs, potatoes and bacon with toast. My buddy is vegan and ordered something ... vegany? My food was...More
This is a neat place. Restaurant attached to a book store. The food for brunch is great. The mimosas are pre mixed and they make sure to tell you. I guess people have complained but I thought they were fine. The service was super nice...More

It is about 16-18 minutes. That is only because of traffic. My friend picked me up and took me there. You can always get a taxi. For taxi prices, you are looking at $12-$15. We went on a Wednesday night around 7:00 PM and it was not busy at all. I am assuming it may be a little busier on the weekends. There is a parking garage right around the corner where you can park. We stayed for 1 1/2 to 2 hours and paid $5. It is in a placed called the Monroe Street Market. The parking garage is at NE Monroe St & NE 7th St. Again, unless you have a friend taking you, I would take a taxi. I am unsure of a Metro station close. I sure these is but I did not see one since my friend was driving me. Plus, it was at night. Hope this helps!
