This is a great place for breakfast just across the street from Whole Foods. There was a constant stream of customers but we had no trouble finding a table for two. There is a selection of breakfast entrées at reasonable prices. The coffee is excellent.

A good flat white is hard to find in the USA, but I found it here! Great breakfast and atmosphere too. Easy to find as right by the Capitol
