Our party of six had lunch here today and everyone found something on the buffet or at the sandwich station to satisfy him or her. This is an Asian food themed self-serve buffet, with both bottled soft drinks, juices, and waters and a self-serve fountain to drink. One buffet had a nice variety of fresh fruit, salads, etc., and the other had meat loaf, spring rolls, rice dishes, etc. There also were special Vietnamese soups and sprout dishes. The prices were quite reasonable for Capitol Hill and the place is only a short walk from the Folger, the Library of Congress, and several government office buildings. Taxis were everywhere on the street. We enjoyed our time.
I work right down the street, so I stop in frequently. They have a good variety of food and it's reasonably priced for the location (everything in DC costs more). It's typically easy to get in and out of quickly which is a perk for the lunch break. They do have a $5 minimum for credit cards, but that's not a big deal as any meal in the city will run more than that.
Our family of 6 was done touring the Capitol area and was ready for lunch. We wanted something close by, reasonably priced and quick. We were pleasantly surprised by the friendly service and delicious sandwiches served up in this "neighborhood" cafe. All of our expectations were met and would recommend to others looking for a quick bite to eat.
I was happier with the food than my husband. I forgot what he had, sorry, but I had kind of an "Asian" plate, I don't remember the exact name anymore. With chicken, stir-fried veggies and rice. It was quite good. Not outstanding, but I liked it. The atmosphere is that of a cafeteria. Great with kids ;-) The staff was very friendly.
