Radici: what do users think?


Michael Condor: Spent a Saturday at Eastern Market and was in search of a good cold brew. Came across Radici and looked like a good spot—the worst coffee I’ve ever had. One sip and tossed it out. Tasted like what I would think burnt Folgers would be. The staff wasn’t exactly very friendly either. Should have taken that as a sign to walk out the door. Maybe their other products are good but if you want an iced coffee, I HIGHLY recommend you go elsewhere.

Charlotte Meindersma (Charlotte's Law): Everything is perfect here! Very nice Italian owner, fresh food, good coffee (I had a cappuccino with perfect foam), great iced tea, super nice location, large terrace. What’s not to love?

Karina Kisselite: Italian shop/ cafe. Quite busy and chaotic on Saturday morning. Good bakery, terrible lattes (don’t think it was even a latte). Nice selection of lunch food - pastas, salads. Max 20 min to sit inside, not a lot of space. Might be nicer outside when the weather permits.

A O: All the food and drinks at this place taste wonderful and you can tell they prioritize customer service. The gentleman who runs it is Italian and just a gem. Two critiques: The pasta is slightly overpriced and…lastly but most importantly…please, please, please stop using the godforsaken paper straws. They don’t work. They immediately turn into mush. I’ll change this review to five stars if and when you convert to working straws.

Kali Smith: Popular place on Saturday morning when the farmers market is open outside. Good prices, good coffee, and wide selection of ready made sandwiches. Alternative milk is 75¢ and they have oat, almond, soy, and coconut. I had the mocha and the breakfast sandwich with capicola; the sandwich was ok, the coffee was good. All the employees were nice, outdoor and indoor seating available. Also sold vegan and vegetarian pasta meals, wines, and dry pasta.

Emma Rose Wooten: Quick+casual Italian lunch spot by the Eastern market. There’s a wide selection of desserts, coffee, food (which is pre-packaged, but they warm it up for you), and basic Italian groceries. My beef+vegetable soup was nice, but the ciabatta was just okay. I wouldn’t say anything we got was exceptional. It was also super crowded when we went so not the coziest, but it feels very local and definitely one of the best options for regrouping after walking around the neighborhood!

Brittany Janeice: My go to café in Eastern Market. Delicious apple strudel, and decent cappuccino. 4 stars because the only free milk is dairy, and I was charged $1 extra for oat milk, totaling an already expensive $4 cappuccino to now $5. Also, if you buy a bottle of wine, they charge you $5 to open it.

Gerald Guillory: Everytime I stop by "Eastern Market" [plug] I enjoy stopping into Radici for real Italian Coffee and one of the best oatmeal cookies i have had in a while. The staff and owner are a joy. Additionally, the selection of Italian wines is excellent for such a small shop. So, if you are ever in DC stop by and be transported to Italty without needing a passport.

William Rich: Great coffee, baked goods and Italian products. Very pleasant outdoor seating area with many signs kindly warning noncustomers to sit elsewhere

Ibrahim Hammouda: Italy in one place in DC. Radici brings you Italy in the café. First, let’s talk about the design and ambience. The design is basic and very clean as well as the restroom. The tables are very clean and have two designs. My favourite spots are, the big wooden table inside, where you can sit and enjoy your drinks or snacks and strike a good conversation with anyone, if possible. and any table in the outdoors area, where you can enjoy the garden and the different views since the café is on a corner. The light is mixed between daylight and warm romantic yellow candle-like light. During the sunset the sunrays get into the place and makes a beautiful romantic scene. Since it’s an Italian café, I should start by the coffee. One of the best espresso in DC. They use Illy Coffee from Italy. They know how to make genuine delicious Italian coffee, including Latte, Mocha, and many others. The pastry section has many options; my favourites are the orange cake, muffins, and ALL Italian pastries. The place has many sections, for instance, Italian wines (they bring them from Italy just for them), pasta (they make their own pasta from scratch), essentials for preparing Italian food, and Italian soft drinks like Sanpellegrino, which is my favourite, since hardly can you find it in D.C. The cafe is very close to Eastern Market Metro station and Eastern Market itself is on the opposite corner of the cafe. The owner of this place is an extremely nice gentleman from Italy and he works there himself, hence this place is always in an exquisite quality and well maintained. They need to put the place on Instagram and put more pictures on social media generally. Therefore, they can get even more customers. BTW, this place has hosted Michelle Obama once. Enjoy!

Salumeria NoMa: what do users think?


Callum Wayman: This is my favorite lunch place in DC. The food is outstanding, the staff are friendly, and the restaurant itself provides the feeling that you're enjoying a local sandwich shop. This is the best sandwich bread you can get in DC, and it's not even close. You can taste the freshness in every bite and the addition of being able to buy the meats and fresh baked rolls separately gives Salumeria a local, small-European town quality that can't be matched at other places. For this price point and this level of sandwich creation, you won't find anything better in DC. Try the Crudo, it's a classic, simple sandwich that provides rich flavors in every bite with fresh mozzarella and prosciutto that melts in your mouth.

Peggy Ament: A colleague recommended Salumeria when I inquired if he had local sandwich shop recs. I knew he, an apt foodie, would know where to go. … I purchased my first sandwich today, and honestly don’t want the world to know so I can keep it to myself. But the tiny establishment deserves the word to be spread. Squeezed between a pizzeria and a coffee shop on N Street NE, the gentleman made and sold me a sandwich better than any I have had in the DC Metropolitan area. I’ve lived here and have been searching for this sammich for over 40 years. OMG. Salumeria, please don’t discount your quality or price me out! ❤️

Cas Marburger: Listen, I ate a sandwich from here about three hours ago and I’m already back to reading the menu to figure out what I want next time. It’s spectacular.

Lucas Keene: Glad they were able to add on a market similar to the 12th Street location. A little larger and spacious. Nice selection of bottled Italian beers not found elsewhere in the area.

Salumeria 2703: what do users think?


Shantel Phillips: Been eating at this place on and off due to convenience over 6 years. As of recently since Shakita stopped working there, the service towards myself as an Black woman had not been the same. EVERY SINGLE TIME I purchase food Im left to find something to eat it with as for some reason it’s not given. I get a salad from menomale and have to ask for a fork and dressing. The food is decent at times but the service has declined.

Michael Hazeltine: They have some delicious sandwiches. The ingredients are quality. And their bread has a nice robust flavor and softness. The crudo dandwich might be my favorite and while a simple few ingredients, they take care to get the quality right. Also, they make their own Gelato with a rotation of flavors!

GIULIX 1990: I never had a problem the guys are always nice the snacks are very good

Deborah Swerdlow: Stop what you are doing right now and go get their gelato. Seriously - it's that good. I got the strawberry and hazelnut, and will definitely be back to try all the other flavors - especially at only $2/scoop.

Rebecca Wolf: Two great vegan gelato flavors: caramel and coffee!!

Crema Guru: A beautiful gourmet Italian market with fresh made cheeses, pasta, take home meals, and fresh baked bread. Also an amazing selection of the finest Italian groceries to cook at home.

Anthony Panichelli: The only place I could find Mozz di Bufala anywhere around here. Also carry the best brand of anchovies, Agostino Recca. Good prices and owner Ettore is a great source of knowledge. Some of their best stuff is hiding, so if you can’t find something you think they may have, be sure to ask. Will continue going here for speciality pizza items, especially those that are perishable.

Tony Cohn: Best bread I’ve had in DC. I dream about the sandwiches I have from this place for lunch. Can’t recommend enough!

martina fornace: After supporting this place and Menomale for years, I will not be coming back. They don’t even bother to post their correct business hours, I’ve come now 3 times during their opening hours and they are closed. That’s having zero respect for your clients.

j a: fyi: imo this place is actually 2/5, but i always leave 5 stars for local/non-chain places, bc i feel kinda guilty otherwise. note: i haven't had their sandwiches yet, so maybe i'll change my mind once i try those. --- we got the eggplant parm and meat sauce; tbh when we got to the store, we didn't really want the parm bc it was so small, but whatever, thought i need to try it at least once cuz i live so close when we got home we realized the "sell by" date on the parm was like 3-5 days ago (can't remember exactly, but it was surprisingly long). not sure why this was still being sold or labeled like that. kinda wish i got a sandwich, feel like maybe that would've been a better buy , but i only realized they had those as i was paying (the menu is a paper on the desk) taste wise: both were fine. i mean they were good, but i guess i was expecting more because of the "quality/authentic ingredients" shpeel. but i guess i shoulda expected that tbh since i don’t think my taste buds are good enough to notice/appreciate things like that but yea pretty awful value overall i'd say; the portions are tiny (which i understand it's bc the ingredients are prob expensive), but regardless, at least for someone like me, it's not worth it

The Italian Store at Westover: what do users think?


Tatiana Russell: This has been an Arlington staple for years, and for a good reason! Excellent selection of gourmet food and wine, as well as prepared foods in the refrigerator. Good coffee and amazing deserts. I am a fan of their thin crust pizzas - one slice will definitely fill you up. Some parking and outdoor seating are super convenient.

John Mattingly: Truly wonderful place! My Italian wife was in heaven. They have everything from prepared foods (pizza, subs, coffee, desserts) to a full range of Italian groceries and a nice wine area. Outdoor seating a plus as well. So shop there, dine there, or both!

David Yuan: Riding an electric bike with my son, an energy replenishment point on the way. There is ample parking lot here. Plenty of outdoor dining tables, if you add an exquisite European-style garden, it will be more perfect, but he doesn't have it. This is a grocery store selling Italian food. Inside is like a food plaza composed of different partners. It sells raw meat, sausage, cheese, pickles, salads, pizza, sandwiches, drinks, seasonings, snacks, sweets, bread, ice cream, coffee, tea, drinks and more. I bought two pieces of pizza, and the young salesperson volunteered to help me reheat the pizza in the oven. It was very heartwarming. Please remember that the pizza here is made with an electric infrared heating oven with pizza stone, not a wood-burning pizza oven. . The pizza is also a New York style with rich ingredients, but it is easy to eat, and there is no complaint. Then I bought a cup of espresso coffee, a cup of cappuccino, and a piece of mullet bread. The coffee here is generally not special, although it uses lily coffee beans, it is also a professional commercial espresso machine. , But the taste is like the coffee beans that have been opened for a long time, the fat is not very strong, and the cappuccino is just a normal American taste. The overall feeling of coffee is just one word, light. That mullet bread is just mediocre, a bit cold. Then I bought a cup of double-ball ice cream. My son had a very happy meal. Well, I'm still reliable with Nice Cream ice cream. Generally speaking, this is a concentrated place for leisure and socializing in the community. It is also a snack place for many parents and children after school. It has the convenience of home, long service hours, low prices, convenient parking, and a moderate location. One place can meet most of your needs. But he is not authentic, he has everything but nothing is done well, he has no native Italian soul. What's the problem? Even if he is 100% Italian, how many people can care about it. Anyway, it is convenient, cheap, and serving the community wholeheartedly is already very good. At least he is a resting place for my parents and children. I cherish and enjoy all the good times he brings. thanks.

Noelle Joukar: This is a great store that has something for everyone. I've recently started getting their ready made foods from the refrigerated section and everything has been yummy. I especially liked the eggplant parm. Illy coffee and tiramisu are great. Lots of gourmet wine, cheese and beer. I'm moving from Arlington but will continue to visit the Italian Store!

Manda B: The sandwich did not feel greasy at all. It was so refreshing actually. Definitely a revisit store! And they have outside seating!

Hannah Wiegard: Tastier $10 imported wines than you find at chain stores. Discount when you get 6. Incredible deli sandwiches (get the Capri) and our kid (age 2) has just fallen in love with the cheese pizza, whole and by the slice. Leave extra time for whole pizzas they get busy. By the slice is always good. We’ve had their party trays of cut sandwiches too which is genius for birthdays. Get a combo, pizzas too. Feed everyone!

Bethany Robinson: First time here and I was super impressed! I have driven past so many times wanting to stop before but never had the time. I’ll be back for sure and will be bringing my family to check it out. Chatted with the one of the owners and managers and they were very nice. They took some time to tell me a bit about their history and even gave me a cannoli as a welcome gift! Thank you for a wonderful first experience!

Timothy Lennon: This place is so good. My family is mostly Italian with my grandfather being the monarch of the family. We took him here for sandwiches, coffee and dessert. Did not disappoint at all. It was so good. Cannot say enough about it

Julie B.: This is a great place to get good quick Italian meal ready to eat. Their pizza is fantastic note if you want a lasgnas you need to order the day before. They have a great wine selection.

Dawn B: I had a slice of pizza with fresh tomatoes,black olives, onion and pepperoni. It was delicious. Best pizza I’ve ever eaten. I had a wonderful glass of red wine and we bought a couple bags of sweets-a sugar cookie that looks like a wagon wheel. This was my first time here. We just moved to Virginia and we will be coming back soon!

A. Litteri: what do users think?


J Z: This review is only for the deli sandwiches. Got the 12” Italian classic at a pretty good price. It tasted good and the ingredients were fresh. Not that much difference or special from lots of other good sandwich places though. I would go again when I’m in the area, but not worth a special trip.

Michael Brown: My first time in A. Litteri I didn’t recall any music playing, but I was definitely humming Che La Luna while trying to find a good bottle of Vermentino - if there was ever a place to find one, the ceiling-high racks of imported Italian, Spanish and Portuguese wines in A. Litteri is where it will be, at least on this side of the Atlantic. To the back of the store, past the walls of imported pasta, olive oils, spices, and sauces are three large deli coolers with olives and cheeses on one side and meats on the other. There are menus and pencils for people to mark their choice of sandwich, choose toppings, etc. Being right next to Gualladet University, you can also mark if you’re deaf so they will bring you your sandwich instead of calling your name. We ordered chicken Parmesan and classic Italian sandwiches on soft rolls. The chicken parm was pressed into a panini and had just the right amount of sauce and melted cheese. The classic Italian was a paean dedicated to the perfect combination of capicola, Genoa salami, mortadella, prosciuttini, lettuce, tomato, onion, hot peppers and olive oil dressing. We ordered some cannolis, of course, and walked them back to my place to have a socially distanced lunch - with Louis Prima playing on the Alexa. My only regret was not ordering more. The Italian embassy may be somewhere else in DC, but Italy’s best ambassador is a little store called A. Litteri. (Out of five) Food: 5; Ambiance: 4.5; Value: 5; Service: 3 (the person at the counter in the back had some serious difficulty grating pecorino despite being asked five times).

Larry “Big Schlim” Mcleod: I stumbled on this spot after searching for another spot. Once I took a look at their menu & prices…immediately I thought, BIG SCHLIM LITE POCKET MEALS!! This place is a storefront has a full service Deli, & has been said to be Italy in one tiny store. . Where I am: @a.litteri . Location Reviewed: 517 Morse St., N.E. Washington D.C. . Menu Includes: Cold Subs like the Italian, Tuna, Chicken Salad, & a build your own option. Hot Subs like their Rueben, Chicken Parmesan, Gyro, Eggplant Parmesan, Caesar-Greek-Chef & Garden Salads, Baked Lasagna, Maryland Crab soup,Chili, Baked goods, Wine, Grocery, & Deli items. . Reviewed: Their Italian Classic Sub (with Capicola, Genoa Salami, Mortadella, Prosciuttini, Provolone, L.T.O, Hot Peppers, Italian Dressing & Seasoning 12” Soft Roll $10.99). STAMP!! Authentic, Inexpensive Just out right GOOD!! GET THIS!! Their Rueben (with Corned Beef, Swiss cheese, Sauerkraut, & Thousand Island on Rye $9.99). DELICIOUS!! This…hit the spot!! Their Meatball (on a soft roll with marinara, mozzarella, and Parmesan $10.99). Definitely DELICIOUS!! Simple with a fresh savory marinara!! Their Baked Lasagna (with Italian sausage $9.74). DELICIOUS!! Made to order, with FRESH ingredients!! . Customer Service: EXCELLENT!! The guys at their Deli counter were Fun, Welcoming, and had good music playing!! Open at 9 a.m. . Online Navigation: Easy to order. . Parking: Rough. Street/Metered/Enforced. . Recommendations: Get the Italian Classic Cold Sub. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️=STAMP ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️=DELICIOUS ⭐️⭐️⭐️=DECENT ⭐️⭐️=PASS ⭐️=NAH

Abraham Tall: I'm not one to normally write a review, but I feel particularly compelled to do so with regards to A. Litteri. I first want to start off by commending the staff. I have never met a group of individuals that are so dedicated to their jobs, while completing their work with a smile and a laugh. There are great people here, who understand their customers needs and are always willing to provide assistance. They are professional, hard working, kind hearted, and just all around good people. I always leave with a smile on my face. Secondly, the A. Litteri's subs are incredible! It is my go to place for lunch on a daily basis during the work week. The quality of the meats and produce is top tier and very fresh, they put your order together in an efficient manner, and not to mention that they offer the cheapest sandwich in all of the Union Market area (also the best quality sandwich). I'll continue to get my lunch from A. Litteri for the foreseeable future and encourage all to check them out. You won't regret it :)

Henggao Cai: I highly recommend this place and definitely order online. A lot of the stuff here is imported from Italy.

Mel Jones: Unfortunately nothing seems the same regarding brick and mortar business these days. However, this place is still a pretty cool spot, a hidden secret when it comes to an authentic Italian deli. Authentic anything is hard to find in DC. Fresh meats, great subs, a variety of Italian delicacies and wines, a real throw back to days gone by.

Fernanda Lanzagorta: Big Italian market with wine, Italian products, homemade pasta dishes and tasteful Italian subs. Their selection of ingredients is fresh and diverse. Definitely a must if you are in the area.

Jorge Zurita-Coronado: Great selection of wine and even better sandwiches. Go here for lunch often and it always hits the spot. One of my favorite items is the meatball sub. Sauce is great and bread is perfectly toasted. Definitely a must try.

Basel K: The best Italian sandwiches in town. A.Litteri has great customer service and variety of goods to choose from. A must try if you're near the area.

bob millett: When I worked in DC - A Litteri was part of the office lunch rotation. From hot pasta and lasagna dishes in the colder months or delicious sandwiches year round. 5 stars is not enough for A Alitteri

Dolci Gelati: what do users think?


Mark Blanchard: Samples galore! The staff really loves it when you try samples. They encourage it, and they're super nice. Best gelato in the dmv area. They have a large number of flavors, traditional flavors as well as unique and original ones. Can't wait to go back! Need a few more trips there.
Response: Thank you. 🙏🏻

A.J. Carlson: Fantastic gelato, especially the sorbet. Had a mind-opening, out-of-body experience with the passion fruit sorbet. Highly recommend.
Response: Thank you for the visit and the feedback. We are preparing new amazing flavors. Please stop by again. Dolci Gelati

Heidi Liou: The lady working was so kind and let me sample a lot of flavors! I ended up going with one scoop fig marscapone and another scoop of birthday cake. Loved the vibe of the store even, but you have to get lucky to snag the indoor seating (fits 2 people). They did bring out outdoor seating as well (two tables, two chairs for each table).
Response: Please visit us again. Now that we can accommodate more customers inside, we added more tables and chairs. 🙏🏻

Saint Eloise: I have been here before. Today I got the blueberry mint, almond coconut, and strawberry something. It was great per usual.
Response: So glad you think so! Thank you for taking the time to review 😃

Adesh Saxena: Great locally crafted Gelato to Die for. Not to be missed if you are in the area. Croissants are baked fresh. Now they also sell dry pasta, olive oils and balsamic 00 pizza flour Imported from Italy..
Response: Thank you.🙏🏻

Christina Redden: The dark chocolate was hella dark and delicious! I also had the honey/marscapone/fig and it was unique and amazingly good too! The staff was happy, helpful, and patient as we made the incredibly difficult choice between flavors. They also had these adorable mini-cones and frozen dog treats!!!
Response: Thank you 🙏🏻

Coco Wander: BEST CANNOLIS IN DC. Hands down. and don't even get me started on the gelato. the FLAVORS. oh boy...... Really put a smile on my masked up face. The staff also made my group feel so welcome and were so patient with our excitement. I was so impressed by this place.
Response: So glad to hear that!! Thank you SO much for your feedback

Conor O'Reilly: When I came in I was immediately asked if I wanted to try a sample! I had a sample of the banana and praline which was delicious. Ultimately I ended up getting a small cup of the tiramisu gelato which I loved. I noticed they have a ton of vegan options which is awesome! They also have an espresso machine so I'll definitely be back to try a latte!
Response: Thank you 🙏🏻

Raymond Jordan: We visited Dolci Gelati at DC Zoo in early April. The ice cream topped funnel cakes were a must have for us adults as the zoo was closing. The baby girl wanted the Italian Ice. Great way to end our day trip ! Thank You
Response: Thank you for the feedback. We appreciate it very much. Please come back to visit us in the near future. Dolci Gelati Team.

Yer Yang: Great flavors and variety. The espresso was potent, which I loved! The chocolate was rich and creamy. The white chocolate raspberry was delicious too. We got the macaroons and the lemon was not fresh. Unlike the other two, it was very chewy and tough. For that reason, I rate this place a 4-star.

Vace Italian Delicatessen: what do users think?


Austin Graff: For 46 years, this Italian market and deli has been making waves in Cleveland Park (and Washington, D.C.). Here's why you should visit: 1) Food: There's a deli in the back that sells Italian subs for under $10 and slices of pizza for $2.50. In an expensive city, it's hard to find a less expensive meal. I ordered a slice of pepperoni pizza. It's thin crusted, but good! 2) Market: They sell all kinds of Italian products from hard-to-get sodas to wines to homemade pasta to all kinds of frozen lasagnas. Cured meats and soccer balls hang from the ceiling. 3) Service: Candidly, it's not friendly and at time abrasive, but it's part of the experience. If you love Italy, wander to Cleveland Park's Vace.

Michael Kisner: Heard this place was good and they were right! I called & ordered an Italian sub and walked to pick it up, carry out only. Opened the door and the gorgeous aroma hit me. This tiny place was filled with goodies, go to their website. The pizza slices on the counter window look delightful. I couldn't wait to eat! My huge sub was waiting for me and I saw they had just made fresh beef empinadas, so I grabbed one of those, too. Sub & empinada are Delicioso! I WILL try the pizza next.

Tom Witkop: I like pizza and this is some of the best pizza around. it is authentic. you're not going to like it if you like extra cheesy corporate pizza. this is a very honest Italian New York style pie. I particularly like the red pizza with onions.

Victoria Goncalves: Best pizza slice north of U st. Their slices are perfectly crunchy and only a couple of bucks. Best lunch in the neighborhood.

Rob Walden: Ordered an Italian sub and it was the bomb. Huge sub, and reasonably priced too. The sub and a slice of pizza was just $9.50 total.

James Struckmeyer (civilwarhero): So much Italian goodness in one tiny location! Though there's no room to sit and enjoy all the deliciousness, whomever's doing the buying and food preparation knows exactly what to hone in on to make Washington, D.C. feel like you've stepped into Naples, Italy. All the right foods and food prep is available, as well as mouth-watering pizza, subs, and deli items. Those lucky kids at American U can't possibly know how good they've got it!

Lani: First time visiting and I got a sub... but I didn’t know it didn’t come eith lettuce, tomato etc on it until I left. Toppings are an extra charge. It’s just meat and bread for $6.50 + tax. Also it’s cheaper on postmates vs in store and that’s weird. I gave it two stars bc the focaccia bread was tasty. Just wish the sandwich wasn’t so dry.

Meghan Caul: If you're a fan of pickled/brined veggies that pack a bit of heat, this lovely shop carries the BEST giardiniera I've ever encountered. Also, their artichoke heart salad (found within the olive bar section) has an effervescent and probiotic zing. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

Martha Wilson: This is where yo find my favorite, individually-sliced pizza in DC, hands-down. I’ve been going here for 20 years. The frozen Italian pasta and lasagna is crazy good, too. (It’s basically a small Italian grocery store.) When friends come in from out of town I swing by Vace and buy one of the frozen lasagnas to have on hand, just in case. The quality is consistently good. You will not be disappointed. Yay, Vace!

V. Michael Romanov: My family discovered Vace in 1994 ( when we moved to Cleveland Park). Right away we fell in love with it. The onion pizza is truly the best in DC! We moved to Boston 15 years ago. Every time we visit DC area we visit Vace . What is truly amazing - everything tastes exactly the same! On our recent trip ( that was just a few weeks ago) we followed the tradition. We also bought 4 frozen lasagnas and brought it with us to Boston. My wife cooked it tonight - we had an amazing meal that brougt some many wonderful memories . Until next time, dear Vace!

PAUL Farragut North: what do users think?


Héctor Arduz: Between medical appointments I took my wife to have breakfast. My wife ordered eggs Benedict w/avocado. The avocado wasn’t ripe. In fact it was hard and tough. Inedible. Sorry to report this. I do love the pastries, but will never again order something more complex, like Eggs Benedict chez Paul, Again… pity. Feeling disappointed

J Acharya: I got 3 pastries and a coffee. Everything was fresh and delicious. Can’t wait to go back and try their sandwiches and salads.

Celine Aka-Koffi: The mille-feuilles (napoleon) is fresh and tasty. We enjoyed chamomile and mint tea on a cold spring afternoon. Service was excellent.

Alok Sinha: Want to give a shout out to this place. I came in a few minutes before they were about to close and the staff were so helpful in getting me some last second pastries. I ordered a cheese danish and a few other pastries. They were all delicious. The prices were fair. Would recommend stopping by here for a pleasant dessert.

Nitzan Ainemer: Great french boulangerie! The service was great, we’ve ordered two special breakfast, including bread, butter, jam, eggs benedict, coffee and orange juice for 50$ total, with taxes. The food was great! Would recommend!

Jamie K: I thought PAUL was a European only place til I moved to dc and it still gives me those vibes, except with american efficiency. Plus, I think PAUL has the best black coffee in the city. And the pasties are all ::chefs kiss:: but don’t miss the Gourmandise or if you like citrus, the citrus tart.

Kaiser Baam: Honestly the seating outside with a good cup of coffee and a three layer moose and relaxing great place to relax and converse with friends. The staff are wonderful. Coffees good.

anthony danks: Slowly Paul's is opening up It has a few customers and weekends people arrive for take out. It's still expensive and has serious competition for pastries by je ne sais quoi. There sandwiches are good as is their bread but they could be better filled for the price. The Napoleon is big and taste also palmera my favourites. The Croke missure is good looking but expensive and not as taste as I was expecting. Still a good location to sit outside and watch lack of traffic or a 20 veichel car cade of the president coming back from McDonald's. Relaxing atmosphere and helpful service doing everything to please.

mustafa Suwaylih: Amazing bakery. I had the chocolate croissant. It was perfect. Paul always surprise us with they amazing decorations. It was the first time I try the macaron and the taste wasn’t as I expected. It was bigger than the normal size. My friend who knows the taste of the macaron said it was great.

Azza T: Ordered omelette and chocolate deluxe croissant. Their latte was very good! Not a busy place and friendly employees.

The Italian Store at Lyon Village: what do users think?


Jason Yeung: Phenomenal subs. I got the Capri, which I found was a great combination of salty, sweet and sour. Their bread is nice and soft, but doesn’t fall apart when you bite into it. My wife got a the Nino pizza - one slice. Great pizza as well. Make sure you like cheese if you order this. Aside from the food, there’s a great selection of Italian snack, pasta, wine and cheese. Make sure you check out the frozen section for frozen ravioli.

MJ: By far the best pizza in the DMV area from my experience both stores are great. I've only ever bought 🍕's from these stores. But I've heard their subs are just as amazing. Expect to pay $25 on a large pie but so worth it. I live about thirty plus minutes away and still worth the drive to pick it up.

Daniel H: This is my favorite Italian sub deli in NOVA for last 40 yrs. But first time since the pandemic and subs are “grab & go” now. 🙁 For customized subs you have to call ahead. I picked up pre-made Capri and Milano and they are not as good as fresh made; no oil & vinegar, can’t mix sweet & hot peppers. I likes its Italians subs with all the trimming and I was a bit disappointed. I’ll definitely call ahead next time.

Lena Molina: It’s an authentic Italian grocery shop with deli. I had a cheese slice. it was okay. Definitely not NY style pizza.

Chesha Hale: I used to love this place especially for the pizza. Now the pizza is still good I love the cheese pizza. The customer service is cold and rude. This place used to be so nice. The staff was warm and friendly, the guys that made the sandwiches & pizza were so cool! But now it’s like this coldness with the staff I miss the old lady that used to be at the register this was before COVID way before. I have not tried the other location yet maybe I will go there since other reviewers are saying that the people are nicer there. I don’t know what change is it the atmosphere or what? Honestly the atmosphere in the area has changed.

Jeremy Plunkett: I've been here three times. The food is good, although one sandwich I ordered might not have been the best fit for me. I recently went and ordered a couple slices of the white pizza. It was pretty good, although a little oily. I did notice that of the 10 staff I saw, 6 were not wearing masks (all at the deli), 2 were wearing them improperly (under the chin or nose), and 2 were wearing them correctly. A little odd since omicron is peaking about right now.

Erika Vaughan (ErikaV99): This place is amazing! I haven't seen so many actual Italian products since I was in a shop in Italy. Find of olive oils, a huge wine selection, and handmade pasta hair. I didn't get to take a deep look at the frozen foods and the deli case, but the little bit I did see made me want to go back and try it all. So much variety of goods in such a small space is fun and impressive. That the staff is so nice and helpful is just the best extra touch.

Lester Gutierrez: I love the large Palermo with sweet peppers on a hard roll. Best sandwich they’ve got without a doubt. The white pizza is amazing too. Order ahead by phone if you want anything customized. Highly recommended!

K Munir: I love this establishment. The sandwiches are delicious. The selection of pastas, wines and accoutrements is exceptional. The staff (often young) is friendly, professional, and thorough. Attending either of the stores is always a joy and reminds me of authentic NYC Italian deli's in my native city.

Eric Lee: Pizzas are fantastic. Ingredients taste high quality, from the cheese to the toppings to the bread. Already been back to try more pizza- have had the suprema, mushroom, Nico’s. All were good and really depends on what mood you’re in. Sandwiches were underwhelming, though they’ve cut down selections since the pandemic. Will give those a try when they bring back the good stuff. Deli is convenient for anything else you might need. Potato and egg salad were decent but won’t get again. Tiramisu is fantastic!

Bread Furst: what do users think?


Leslie Williston: this place is so cool! fun to be able to watch people make fresh bread. The pastries we fabulous. i would love to see a lemon scone. overall wonderful inside and out. cool market vibe inside too

Sedona Reilly: Stopped here on my way home from American University and it was hands down the best breakfast place I have been to in the city thus far. The store is so cute, there’s everything you could imagine in stock. The employees were so warm and welcoming, and the food was delicious. My mom and I left with 2 gourmet bagel sandwiches and a few pastries for the road. I will be making this a regular spot when I move to the city!

Tan Sav: Ordered online for pickup. It was easy and my order was ready quickly. This was around 9am on a Saturday. The croissants were buttery, flaky and delicious. It was bit smashed, but that didn't take away from the taste. I got the gravlox bagel. It was salty, savory and tangy. I had never been inside before so it would have been nice to know where the pickup orders were located.

Mark Blanchard: It was my first time at Bread Furst, and I'm impressed. Their baguette is top notch, the second best baguette in the DMV area, which is a bold statement. We tried a few pastries that were also delicious. I love the open area and how you can see them making the baguettes from scratch - great experience. The only downside is that around noon, they had run out of multiple items that we wanted to try, and also several pastry items were not labeled (no name or description) so had to ask multiple times what each thing was (they weren't obvious items, or if they were, the flavor wasn't obvious). Other than that, the patio is pretty, but you unfortunately inhale car exhaust from the car wash that's adjacent to the cafe.

Sticks Forks & Others: Stopped by today for the first time - a 30+ minute drive. Well worth the trip. Very impressed overall. Main goal was to get some canele, which is very hard to come by, especially the good ones. Wasn’t disappointed. Picked up a bag full and a chocolate croissant. All very, very good. The canele was firm and crispy on the outside and moist on the inside - just the way it should be. The same goes for the chocolate croissant - perfectly done with the perfect amount of chocolate. There is so much to see at the store. From pasta to peanut butter, you could spend hours eye shopping. There is parking behind the back and few outdoor seats in front and back of the store. Definitely worth the trip and worth revisiting.

Y B: Do you like the taste of burned toast? This is what the crust tasted like as I discovered the condition of the bread in the paper bag. Additional worth noting that not posting prices is a basic form of economic discrimination.

Dondré: Bread furst is a different type of bakery. Not only do they have fresh bread but they also offer a plethora of local pastas, sauces, dried fruits plus more. The staff is friendly and the options are plenty. There are options for outdoor dining as well which is always nice when the weather is great.

V Rossi: Their sourdough bread is incredible! 🍞 They sell sourdough starter for $3.50. I bought some and fed it once home and it tripled in size. A nice healthy starter. I did have to ask few people the first person I asked didn't realize they sell starter...

dwayne gulley: Late review but it was a must. Breakfast here is amazing. Very busy but worth the wait as everybody in here is visibly working hard. Manager or owner was walking the floor and stocking and recommended the mixed jars to mix alcohol with. That was a solid recommendation and a hit with my holiday crew.

Blake Ellis: I've never written a Google review before, and I don't want to sound like a total Karen, but I feel like I've gotten to the point where I have to add something here. I live close to Bread Furst, so I come here a lot, and every time I visit, I tell myself not to come back. Then of course I'm lured in by the great smelling bread, and I get frustrated all over again, so I guess I'm doing this to myself. I've probably been here between 10-15 times and I don't think they've ever gotten the order correct. This is just in reference to brunch food. When I've ordered online, they've forgotten to make the order completely (both times) and I had to order it again in person, which defeated any efficiency. When I've ordered in person, many times they've gotten the order wrong or have forgotten to put all the ingredients on or have forgotten to make it completely even though I've just put it in. The past few times I've visited, I waited for a while, and then someone looked over at me and asked what I was waiting for before explaining to me that they must gotten their wires crossed or something because no one had started making it. I wouldn't review with such vehement frustration if Breadfurst wasn't so expensive. But it's become a bit of a running joke in our house that the order will always go wrong when we come here. The pastries are great. I just don't think it's worth this whole ordeal--the mistakes, the very hectic lines, the insultingly pretentious staff--just for an overpriced and reliably cold breakfast.

Gregorys Coffee: what do users think?


Scott “DC Cheetah” Suchyta: As someone who seeks out good coffee, Gregory's is a place that I will go into if I don't have the option for a shop that roasts in-house. I find the coffee more palatable than something like Starbucks and I've generally had good experiences with the staff. It's still not my favorite coffee, but it meets the the threshold that I'll have it when I desperately need coffee.
Response: Scott, thank you so much for the feedback. All of our coffee is roasted in house. Sorry to here the coffee at the 1900 L st location wasn't up to standards. I would recommend trying our Peppermint Mocha on your next visit.

Krystal Perez: Cute little coffee shop I found on my lunch break this evening , the baristas are so sweet and creative I felt at home here ... they allow inside seating and presented me with a fancy latte, with art included! Keep it up ladies, your the best !!!
Response: Thanks for the feedback Krystal! Next time you visit trying one of our cold brew options, I recommend the Flower Power.

Saray Fischer: Stopped by this afternoon for a quick pick me up, I was surprised that this cafe was open but it feels like home , great music, soft lighting, tons of plants, and the male barista served me at my table, I loved it. I felt special and will be returning when I need to get out of the office more often . I will be recommending this chain to my coworkers , family , and friends !

Monika Raj: The staff are among the nicest folks I’ve ever met and make visiting this place worth it. However, the store consistently has issues with their online ordering system…often times it’s down or underestimates how long it will take to be ready. This in no way is the fault of the staff and they do their best to work with what they have…but this is not reliant if you are hoping to grab coffee before a meeting
Response: Monika, thank you so much for the feedback and for bring this issue to our attention. We will address this right away.

Elizabeth Hung: Loved my experience and drink here! The indoor decor is so hip and cute. The menu choices all sounded amazing but I went with the matcha latte with oat milk. It was perfectly matcha-y and unsweetened (my favorite). One of the best matcha drinks I have gotten in the dc area. My friend got the chai and he said it was great as well.
Response: Awesome news Elizabeth, thanks for the feedback! Glad you enjoyed the Matcha! See you soon!

J D: One of the best mocha lattes I've ever had. It wasn't too sweet, had a great flavor, good size, good price, and well made. Place had a good atmosphere. Was clean for a 2PM visit. Had a bit of foot traffic, and pretty busy, but only one person in front of me. Coffees were coming out at a good pace and the staff was nice. I'd definitely come back and go out of my way if I were in the area to get another coffee from here.

Linsay Culver: --------Friday, September 7, 2018 @ 1pm----- I'm sipping one of their mochas as I write this and I have to say I'm impressed. It isn't often that I get a great flavored coffee that isn't over sweetened. The coffee doesn't even have a hint of bitterness. The barista pulls a perfect shot. She also didn't overuse the mocha sauce or flavor. The coffee tastes a lot like Evan Bros out of Sandpoint, Idaho. I also got a chocolate chip cookie, which isn't the best, but it's decent. I'm going to save the rest of it and put it in the microwave at home. I think it will be better. Chris, the cashier was super nice and extremely helpful. Wish I would've seen the baristas name, too. She is a very talented barista. Sheade a perfect heart in my crema! Anyways, the atmosphere was modern industrial. Not overly comfortable, but quaint. The service was excellent and fast. I'll be back when I'm back in DC in a few weeks. If you are in the area try it. If a place can make a decent mocha, the rest of their coffees are generally going to be good, too.

Sharon Angela Naidoo: This place ticks all the boxes, good service, GREAT COFFEE and wonderful atmosphere. I have visited this coffee place everyday I stayed here. The coffee always had a personal touch. The picture below is a cortado with skim milk.

Fred Kingman: My wife and I agree that this cafe has good drip coffee, and great customer service. There is indoor and outdoor seating, we chose outdoors. She had the breakfast burrito. I tried the skinny and it was wholesome. Definitely worth a second visit next time were in town.
Response: Fred, thank you so much for your feedback. Next time your in town, your coffee and breakfast sandwich will be on us./

Adam Rutkowski: There needs to be some customer service training. Business opens at 7am. I showed up at 7:03. It was raining outside. The door was unlocked. I entered and was told I had to leave because you weren’t open, yet. Instead of inviting me to sit in the foyer area in a chair, out of the rain, I was escorted out of the space and the door was locked behind me… in the rain.
Response: Hi Adam - I'm so sorry to hear about your experience this morning. It is definitely not how we should have welcomed you in out of the rain and served you right away even as we were setting. I've addressed this with the team and I want to invite you back in for coffee and a treat on us to make up for this. DeeDee ,the manager on site will be there and will take care of you! So sorry again and looking forward to seeing you again. -Greg

La Tomate: what do users think?


Jasmin Hollywood: I've patronized this restaurant for lunch and dinner many times, but recently I tried their endless Italian brunch and it was awesome. Their dining ambiance was comfortable and relaxing. The service was excellent and the owner is such a lovely woman (also black woman owned business). If you love fine upscale dining and Italian food this is the place. Their charcuterie and meats are high quality and great tasting. The desserts are phenomenal. I look forward to coming back to dine again soon.

A Ponce: Just okay. The presentation was nice, flavor was "okay" . Certainly other options with more wow factor for the same or likely less cost. Bring some bread with you, the generously salted scone left much to be desired. The hostess on the other hand was a delight

Susanna Mostaghim: Presentation was good. The food was above average. You can find better. Service was patient and fast. A popular spot for many people with indoor and outdoor seating in DuPont. Decent portion sizes for the price.

Jennifer McMorrow: We went all out here with appetizers and dessert and had a really lovely meal. The prosciutto and cheese selections were exceptional and the homemade pastas are really good. I had cacio e pepe and my sister had the ravioli- both full of flavor and well prepared. I would definitely recommend this place!

Ya Xin Lin: I went with friends after passing by it so many times and seeing all the super cute decor. I got the Pasta al Nero which was good, though I would advise others that the food in general is on the expensive side. I would bump my rating to a 5 but our waiter was passive aggressive at times. They got one of my friends order wrong and she ended up having to pay for a $30 dish when she wanted a $14 one.

Daffy Taffy: Truly, what a beautiful experience from the beginning to the check... I cannot say anything negative about this place as a Californian and living in DC for the last decade I have to say this Italian spot is elegant with the service and the food is good. High quality and over my expectations from seeing this restaurant in the past from the outside. Thank you. 💌

Percy Holmes: I've been wanting to try this resturant for years and finally tonight my wish cane true. La Tomate certainly lived up to my expectations. The draw back for me was being seated in the 'warm' back area. I would have preferred to sit up front but that minor detail did not take away from the meal or the service. I had an incredible beet salad with pasta and tiramisu for dessert. Overall, I had a great experience and I'm glad I was finally able to check this awesome spot off my DC list.

Sara Ramirez: Service was terrible. The waiter waited until after we had placed our order to tell us the special of the day. I have gluten intolerance and was inquiring about options, He told me that any pasta could be done gluten free. I ordered the Pasta al Nero hoping to get the squid sauce and instead got red sauce instead (see images). The sauce was super salty. One of us also had lactose intolerant and when we asked whether an item had lactose, the waiters answer was, the ingredients are on the menu. Overall, the experience was unpleasant and I had chosen the restaurant because I had family in town. I was going to leave one star, but the decor is nice and my guest said they enjoyed the bread. We will NOT be returning to La 🍅

Giovanni F.: Christmas’s Lunch with the Italian in DC, nice place, good food and fancy music. Domenico has great ideas to grow the business. Good luck.

Kerry Lacroix: We had Cacio E Pepe, (Cacio being cheese). The noodle texture and cook was exceptional, however there was no flavour, and no detectable cheese. We also couldn't taste the 'pickled truffle' that was in the dish on the menu. There was a lot of butter. We had the beef tartare. It didn't seem freshly prepared, and had a texture like it had been cured with what tasted like vinegar or caper juice. There was plenty of beef, however the texture suffered from the curing, and the cooked egg yolk on the top (usually raw). The onion was diced a little too chunky for us, but this is down to preference. Perhaps they used to prepare this fresh and were burned by poisoning someone, so now they cure and cook, but this isn't how it's supposed to be. Please learn to do it right safely, or stop doing it wrong. Their meat and cheese platers were good, the meats thinly sliced, and tasty. The service and staff attention was excellent, on par with the best places we've been. The decor is nice. When they asked at the end of the meal, I provided feedback on the food to the wait staff. They brought glasses of Prosecco to try to compensate for the food quality, however we just wanted to improve the quality, and weren't looking to drink more. Would have preferred to be asked what they could do than have it decided for us.

Response: Thanks for your review! Appreciate your support of our business and mission.

Rebecca Opiela: I loved it! The staff was super nice and efficient. The space well clean and had a nice bathroom. Everything was wheelchair accessible including the front door and bathroom. The croissant was delicious too! I sat there and read a while and had a nice time.
Response: Thank you for your 5-star rating! So glad you enjoyed your visit, and hope to see you back again! We appreciate your support of our small business and our mission.

Alisha T: 🔥 Matcha cherry muffin with cherries inside 🔥 and their chocolate zucchini mini bread is very chocolate rich! Great loose leaf tea selection. Nice and cozy spot.
Response: Thank you for your review! So glad you enjoyed your visit, and hope to see you back again! We appreciate your support of our small business and our mission.

Karen Laska: Love this place!! Everything is delicious, but my favorites are the chocolate zucchini bread, the egg & cheese on a honey thyme biscuit, and the chocolate chip cookies. It’s a great spot for reading or studying, and the staff members are always so nice. Highly recommend it!
Response: Thank you for your review, Karen! We really appreciate your support of our business & mission.

Austin: OVERHYPED. The bakery is certainly tasty, however it is more of a cafe. I arrived on a Sunday morning when they were not busy and purchased both a breakfast sandwich and matcha cherry muffin. The muffin was not noticeable burnt, but it was slightly over cooked as the wrapping was sticking to the muffin and was burnt. The breakfast sandwich with the honey thyme biscuit is AMAZING which earned the three stars. The lady at the register was friendly and prompt to assist me, she spoke loud and clearly; something that is rare nowadays with the masks on. It was also $19 for an egg and cheese sandwich, muffin and a small latte… with oat milk which is like 50¢… I don’t mind paying that if it’s tasty, but it wasn’t.
Response: Hello Austin! We are sorry to hear your visit didn't go as well as we would hope. We hope you'll give us another chance, and appreciate your feedback.

Charlotte Rhea: it’s delicious! such a cool bakery and i highly recommend the cinnamon bun. it was perfect!
Response: Thank you for your review! We are glad you enjoyed your visit, thank you for supporting our business and our mission!

greg nyhus: Lovely, patriotic themed, and inviting bakery. The coffee is outstanding and the baked goods are awesome. Cranberry-apple muffins are generous and the cinnamon rolls are a full meal. Friendly and cheerful staff make the coffee stop or breakfast a great experience. Well done!
Response: Thank you for your review and your support of our mission!

Stephanie Adams: Great service. The nice lady who always takes my order takes her time to make sure I know exactly what I’m getting and what else might be good to try. They always have little samples which are pulling me towards a whole cake 😇
Response: Thank you for your review, we're so glad to hear that you enjoy stopping by the bakery regularly! We appreciate your support of our bakery and our mission. Hope to see you again soon.

Zee MW: Great spot to grab a quick bite. Nice environment.. the folks that work there are amazing. The food is pretty good. Definitely recommended if your in the area!
Response: Thank you for stopping by! We appreciate your support of our small business and mission. We hope to see you again!

Maritza Cooper: What a wonderful place to grab a cup of coffee and enjoy with a delicious desert or sandwich. Their decor is lovely. We went for a special Comedy night held by the Armed Services ARTS Partnership! The barista on duty did an amazing job of not only cleaning up for the nite, but set up the food and refreshments flawlessly. She made sure my 7 year old granddaughter was comfortable and well fed. I will be back. Love the idea of empowering Vets! And teaching them business skills to succeed after their service ! Great job Dog Tag Bakery!

Trader Joe's: what do users think?


CM F.: This is a very new store. It's clean, spacious, easy parking without time limit, so I enjoyed taking my time explore this store. It has all the stocks that I am familiar and desired. Including the best ice cream! I have visited countless TJ stores in LA, NY, DC, and used to live next door of a TJ as my preferred choice. This one is one of the very best. I highly recommend. It's been a while before my last visit due to Covid sheltered at home. This is still my favorite, and food stocks are even better!

Natalia Suska: Best grocery store in the area! It has the cheapest prices in Georgetown because they do not price surge based on location, like Safeway does. The staff are all really nice and helpful too.

Alex Navarro: Great store. Not enough variety for me to shop there exclusively, but I do love many of their items enough to make a special trip. The service from the staff is always excellent. As with all Trader Joe’s, the parking can be a nightmare. Too many spots jammed in.

Duncan Bishop: Typical TJ's grocery store. Not too much to say. The checkout lines can be a bit long sometime since they're not fully staffed but that's okay. Good selection of wine as usual and the beer options are pretty good.

Lillian Bauer: I visited Monday 03/21/22 around 4:30 pm! Got all my groceries, but unfortunately the woman packed my bags too heavy. I figured my car’s around the corner - I’ll be ok. Well, I was wrong all my items broke through the bag on the sidewalk. Of course all the eggs broke:( I set them aside, picked up my groceries and went to my car before another bag broke. A young brunette woman saw me, ran to my car and offered to run inside and get the items that broke! She was on parking duty. I wish I got her name but let me just say - what a wonderful person!!! This store is beyond lucky to have her!

Maribel Jimeno: The bestTrader Joes in DC. they are increasingly adding more and more fresh unpacked produced which is nice. If only they had more variety of fish and meats, this store would be perfect.

paula douglas seidel: This is my favorite Trader Joe's in the area. Great parking. The store is bigger than others and always efficient!!!! Great selections of flowers too!

Peyton Doyle: Favorite Trader Joe's in the DC area, hands down. 14th Street and Bethesda are chaos compared to this. There is dedicated parking underneath (which you can actually navigate). It is also brand new and exceptionally spacious. There is also a larger selection of items available here than other Trader Joe's. I will certainly return.

YOUNG-i The GOD: Great customer service goes a long way. Always clean, lines get long but move fast, and they of course have some of the best produce and vegan products on the market. And I don’t think anyone beats their wine prices!

DC Explorer: I know I'm in the minority, but I never understood the enthusiasm about Trader Joe's. So I asked some friends. One likes the variety and price of produce. The other likes the wines and ready-made items. I'm drawn to the international foods but they aren't the healthiest. So I see lots of things that look delicious but I have to pass on most of them. So, for me, it's a great place for an occassional, unique treat. To each his/her/their own. I also have to praise the cashiers---excellent service.

Tynan Coffee & Tea: what do users think?


Nathan Bickell: Price on the menu is not the price.... It felt like the tax on my orders were absurdly high so i asked for a receipt. Turns out there is a "recommended service" automatically added to your order, and then tax on top of that. The receipt still has recommended gratuity, so this isn't a tip... also it can't be a tip if you HAVE to pay it... Also you don't even get the option to accept or decline a receipt... I had to affirmatively ask for it... also shady and clearly done to keep people oblivious to the charge. Absolutely nothing in the store or the menu indicates this is the case. If you need to raise your prices fine... but just raise the price! Don't add some hidden fee to every bill. It's a nice place but I'm not going back to support nonsense business practices like this.

Jessica C: This place has my favorite lattes/mochas. I think it’s because of the textured milk. Their seasonal honey lavender latte was fantastic — sweet but not sickeningly so. Their ancho chili mocha has the exact right amount of spice. Unfortunately though, these don’t translate to their iced coffee counterparts. If you want a flavored drink, order it hot, as the flavoring separates and you can taste powdered cinnamon (or whatever it is) when served cold. Great selection of pastries including bullfrog bagels. This is always where I go for a treat.

Herbert Meisner: When I move into a neighborhood, I really try to become a part of the community. My favorite thing to do is find coffee shops to try out and meet the staff. Before I moved to Columbia Heights, I visited a bunch of coffee shops. Tynan is by far my favorite coffee shop in DC (and honestly, ever!), and holds an incredibly special place in my heart because it was the first place I dined indoors and sat in to work after being fully vaccinated. The staff are incredibly friendly (shoutout to John, Leti, and Maria!), their food is great (especially their power bagel, love bullfrog bagels and the BMT and grown up grilled cheese), and I love their homemade syrups for lattes. The staff are so personal, I brought my parents to the coffee shop and introduced them to the owner. Its a lovely place, lovely vibe, favorite coffee, and super convenient since its right next to the west entrance of the Columbia Heights metro. Its my go-to local coffee shop, and I can't praise it or recommend it enough!

Audrey Jane: Ordered a delicious cafe con leche. Their ginger flavor was great. But I came here specifically to work on homework the register worker informed me that the manager turns off the Wi-Fi on the weekend?? The description for this place advertises wifi, I was disappointed when there wasn’t any. Had to go to another place, wish I didn’t spend my money here

Margot Igland Skarpeteig: Perfect espresso - so sweet! And patient and super friendly staff.

Shey Wilkin: Made a quick stop into Tynan during our trip to DC pre-pandemic. Nothing too memorable, but I do recall it being really close to the bus stop, which made it super convenient, since we were strictly traveling by free public transport at the time. Husband had that delicious looking waffle, egg, and cheese sandwich sitting in a pool of syrup. I think I got a turkey avocado sandwich. I would go here again.

Real Live Blue: The everything bagel, blueberry waffle and turkey sandwich are amazing🔥🔥🔥🔥

Chris Dock: Writing this on my phone because their wifi is that bad. Decent place to come for food, the coffee is just okay, and I can't recommend it at all if you need to get work done. Go to Tryst or Elle instead nearby.

Haim Haviv: Laptop-friendly neighborhood cafe. However, the bagel my breakfast sandwich was served on was dry and internet is limited so you need a code every hour. Otherwise friendly staff and a spacious place.

Nancy Cosner: Amazing. Chilli ancho mocha. My new fave. I like spicy. This has got just a touch at the end. Barista super helpful and friendly. My first visit. Will definitely return.

Whole Foods Market: what do users think?


José FERREIRO (ホセ フェレイロ): You may find anything here. Amazon fresh delivery here. Easy parking🅿️ you may find even warm food ready to eat. It is interesting to note that you will not find alcool due to local regulations. From meat, fish 🐠🐟 to pastry everything you need. Vegetables very fresh. Everything well. My favorite > the olives that were amazingly good.

Henok Garedew (Henny breezy): This Whole Foods conveniently located in downtown DC. The hot bar has amazing food (I have to eat in my car) The only thing I don’t like is after Amazon bought the store they no longer have dining area. Have lots of parking. Validation is required upon exit.

Joseph Althouse: I love WF. Every location. Cheese selection is fantastic. Seafood is fresh. Not all locations have the sourdough baguette but if you can find it I highly recommend it. I wish there was better line management at checkout. The lines always force customers to block areas needed by other shoppers.
Response: Thanks for your support, Joseph! We look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

Holliday Aldridge: Lovely and healthy place to shop. Heads up! They do not sell Cokes or anything else that's not good for you. Great selection of very fresh produce etc. Would love to have one close to where I live in Florida.
Response: We're glad to offer the products our customers can enjoy and as well thanks for the feedback, Holliday!

Andrew Loftus: Whole Foods is an important anchor business in the heart of our Logan Circle neighborhood in Washington, DC. Excellent selection of fresh fruits, veggies, meat and seafood, as well as prepared foods and deli items. Of course, prices are a little high, but that's widely known, and the nickname "Whole Paycheck" is most definitely earned. Nonetheless, the store is a welcome presence and confirms that "our neighborhood has arrived." It's also nice that they have free validated parking in their own garage, a real plus in our part of the city.

JAMES HYDE: I only go to While Foods for the prepared foods bar. Based on that, this is the worst Whole Foods I’ve been to. I visited three times, and all three times there were a lot of items empty, the food looked old, once the only protein was dried out meatloaf, fried dried chicken, or three pieces of grilled chicken breast that looked like it was from last week. I don’t think I was the only one, there was lots of disappointment walking around looking for something to eat. One visit there was NO lettuce. A salad bar without lettuce! 😐

Josh: This is a nice neighborhood grocery. Whole Foods offers great options but I go here because the staff is exceptionally helpful, the to go hotplates are well looked after and it's easy to park despite the heavy traffic around the block. Thank you!

Eddies: It's an okay WF store in terms of inventory, but forget the hot foods bar. The breakfast, in particular, leaves much to be desired. Eggs are always dried out and old, no matter what time I go in. Bacon is always a big pile of fatty meat. Not good at all and not reliable. They need to do better or just get rid of it.

T B: Stopped by Sunday May 8th to pick up some groceries and even before I entered the store it was clear this visit was going to be an unpleasant one. First, I haven't had any issues here at this location with employees ever before. The only problems are the arrogant types that shop here thinking they are better than everyone else bumping into or stepping on other customers while looking like it is all your fault. Lovely, right? However, something was up yesterday. As I grabbed a small grocery basket and turned around, I see several customers waiting to do the same so I just politely waited for everyone to get their baskets. As I stand there I see the Whole Foods employee in charge of replenishing baskets just mouthing off something awful. Why? Because apparently we were all taking too long. The icing on the cake was his nasty and very unprofessional verbal attack on a female customer who was walking away after finally picking up her basket. The guy looked straight at her asking what was wrong with her and that she was taking too long. HIs mouth was running the entire time, but I couldn't make out everything he said. The female customer was too shocked to say anything back. It was not a pleasant sight especially in the evil world we reside in today. This incident was reported to a customer service manager, but I am sure nothing was said because nothing ever is said. I know... been in the workplace for 20 plus years. It's like this... if you don't like your job and if you feel customers inconvenience you then my advice is to quit and go home.
Response: Hi, we're so sorry to hear about your recent visit to our P street store. We've gone ahead and shared your customer service feedback with our internal team for review. We hope you enjoy the rest of your day.

Mike J.: Ok store but one police officer and one manager by name LYNN. accuses people of shoplifting. Racially profiled people and along with one security guard. On two occasions he followed me and checked into my bag , I been shopping there for five month. New here from Texas. Only when he started working there things became different and difficult. This just has happened a month so far. He also has done same with my friends and other People who carry re usable bags. He should not be a manager. Horrible experience when ever he is working there. He should be fired.

Sassy Sauce: The stores produce is always fresh and it’s so stimulating for the eye. I love the vibrant colors and the selection is pretty good. I like the selection of organic products too. They have an entire aisle devoted to organic foods. They have a large selection of beers and wines. It’s always something new to try. The pharmacy is good too. They pharmacists are always friendly and willing to help. The self check out lines can get a little long on the weekends but they move quickly.

Doralicia Farmer: Giant Foods was crowded as usual, but that's a good thing because Giant Food & Pharmacy is actually the only large grocery chain that is I'd say I restocked and lots of friendly customer service workers to assist anytime. Giant has everything daily fresh baked breads& scones, French butter tea biscuits. The fruits & vegetables are beautiful large varieties in the Organic section as well. Check out the seafood & meat dept. Giant's prices are very reasonable. Giant Food & Pharmacy well stocked to meet all of your needs. So visit the Shaw neighborhood Giant Foods & Pharmacy they earn top recognition from me and many others.

T T: The customer service that S.Niya shows to Giant customers is unacceptable. 2376 18 78 116 store:2376 I want everyone in the community to Please report your experiences of rude supernova behavior that S.Niya has. Her demeanor is confrontational and does not look good for Giant to allow such behavior. Also when I asked to speak to the Manager Jerome Debrew he came over and repeated very arrogantly, short and dry that I could not get a refund that I had to go to Customer Service. I did notice a difference in Mr. Debrews behavior today, he normally communicates and has customer service skills. Today my opinion of him is that he inappropriately favors S. Niya and had to prove something to her I guess. This is why she blatantly shows poor customer care to Giants faithful customers. I could have got LOUD and gave her the same energy back but today I was taking Michelle Obama's advice...Go High......{today} because S. Niya is definitely low in spirit..... Also I have had items removed by the cashier even if they called over someone to assist............. Customer Service 5 stars for the young lady with the glasses working today 1/18/22 3:58pm..what a joy it is to experience someone who knows how to talk to people...When I told her my issues of the cashier not giving me time to use my Giant card she explained to me that even though I didn't use my card today none of my items were on sale. The young lady explained that if I would have missed a discount I could see it at the bottom of my receipt. I had so much clarity encountering her. This is what the Manager Jerome could have explained if he took the time to ask me my issue as customer service clerk did but instead he backs up a poor incompetent associate. Overall I find the behaviors very strange today and feel S. Niya and others who have poor communication services are not healthy team members of Giant O street team. District Managers your glass on the O street side needs to be repaired. Maybe replace your Manager and lack luster associates along with the new glass... TT
Response: We appreciate you sharing this important feedback about your experience with Giant Food, T T. We strive to be your trusted neighborhood grocery store and realize that service is at the heart of every relationship. We apologize that you had unsatisfactory experience and we want to correct the issues faced. We hope you can contact us at 888-469-4426 to discuss your experience.

Whole Foods Market: what do users think?


Clark Higgs: far the dirtiest whole foods store that I've ever been in. Some of their staff seem to have an "I don't care" attitude. After shopping, I stood in the coffee line for 15 minutes before I was waiting on by the only attendant working who made the following comment to another customer "there needs to be three people working at the coffee stand at all times". A new management team is suggested for this place, I will not return.
Response: We're so sorry you were disappointed on your recent visit, Clark. Please visit http://wfm.com/help to send us further details and our team would be happy to review your feedback.

Hilda Kroll: I think it's great to have a supermarket across the street from the Foggy Bottom Metro. I usually get something in the bakery before heading for home when I'm in the area. Today I met a friend for coffee before going to the nearby Textile Museum. I got there first and didn't have a problem getting a cup of coffee. My friend came later, stood on line for fifteen minutes to get a cup of decaf, and refuses to go back. If you have the time, coffee and the choice of so many good pastries is a good deal. If you're in a rush, go somewhere else and pay twice as much.

Jeff: I'm stuned a whole food with a line wrapping around the store? Are you kidding me unreal. Never again to this very sad of an excuse to have this hanging. Can see the line on one side of the store and registers on the other. Freak show.

Win Anderson: This great review is solely because of the wonderful barista at the coffee shop. I was in town for a conference and went to whole foods three days in a row for coffee in the morning. Each day Tom provided wonderful coffee and friendly service. He is polite and personable and efficient. (This was in stark contrast to some of the register checkout clerks, who were downright rude.). The police officers were very friendly!

Cyndy Nguyen: I came here for the coffee bar and had a wonderful experience. The barista, Tom, was friendly and helpful. He gave me some information about the decaf coffee (doesn’t contain any chemicals). He gave me a sample of one of their green smoothies and made me a delicious brown butter cookie latte. I’ll come back for the great customer service.
Response: We truly appreciate you sharing your feedback with us, Cyndy. We are thrilled to hear of the amazing experience you received at the Foggy Bottom store, and will gladly share your feedback with the appropriate leadership so Tom can get the kudos they deserve!

Kevin Russell: Is a big store. I can buy my whole octopus here which makes me happy. Great seafood and meats department. Used to be really long check out lines but now the converted many to self check out and it seems much faster. I'm not the guy who loves Whole Foods but as for the stores I have been to, this one is a good one
Response: We appreciate your support, Kevin. We are delighted to hear how great your experience was and we hope you enjoy the rest of your day!

Barry Bub: I am usually willing to pay more at a Whole Foods market because I generally enjoy the shopping experience there. This particular store not, for a number of reasons. Here’s one. When I asked the checkout person, politely, to tape the lid of the soup container to prevent it coming off - I had a long walk home - she yelled at me and stormed off. She was replaced by male who told me they no no longer tape or rubber band lids. I guess the few seconds it takes to do so eats into their profits. And what has happened to customer service? I agree with the previous reviewer, it’s a management or corporate problem.
Response: We're so sorry you were disappointed on your recent visit, Barry. Please visit http://wfm.com/help to send us further details and our team would be happy to review your feedback.

Melissa Colón: I love stopping by the coffee bar for my daily fix. My drink is always perfectly made and the conversation is great! I’m hoping that eventually the hot bar breakfast will work its way back up to how great it was pre-pandemic.
Response: We're pleased to hear you enjoy our coffee bar, Melissa. Thank you for shopping with us!

Natalia Delgado: Had a really had experience at this location. We were accused of stealing by the manager just because we had our own cart with groceries from trader joes. The grocery store is 15 minutes from where we live and we go walking so we have no other option than to go to both stores in one trip. He made us feel very uncomfortable the whole time and followed us throughout the store. Another person had their own cart and was putting groceries in there but it didn’t seem like he said anything to them while we had our whole foods items in a separate basket. He approached again at checkout (after making it very obvious that he was talking about us with another employee) and said we couldn’t bring our own cart because “it confuses the employees”. I explained that we had a receipt for the groceries we had in our cart but he didn’t seen to care. We don’t have the luxury of a car or leaving nearby the store and we had never had any problems with going to two stores in one trip with our cart.
Response: We're so sorry you were disappointed with your recent visit, Natalia. Please visit http://wfm.com/help to send us further details and our team would be happy to review your feedback.

Caroline McGuire: Tom makes the best smoothies at the coffee & smoothie bar! The whole staff is amazing and the store is always so well organized. Cannot recommend this spot enough!
Response: We appreciate your support, Caroline. We are delighted to hear how great your experience was and we hope you enjoy the rest of your day!

Safeway: what do users think?


Elena Christinne: Affordable prices. Lots of options on the deli section. For a visitor is a great location to grab and go some breakfast or lunch.

Dave Schubert: Nice upscale store. Nicer than their other stores. Be sure parking stub gets validated correctly if you are in the basement garage. Scanner issues for me ... I had to go back to avoid $15 requested at the gate.

Khalil Abrams: The second lady at the deli was getting so agitated by me questioning that the .25 lb of grilled vegetables was not equal to the 2lb label other lady put on my container. Weird right? Then she tried to justify it by looking at the unit price of 1.77 per lb and stating that’s how much it weighs. Mind you there is only a quarter pound of vegetables in the container. Again, it just goes to how people can be untrained and be on the verge of a mental breakdown instead of listening to a customer. I called the store beforehand and got a dial tone the first go round and the second time around, I explained to customer service person that the situation and she takes my container over to the deli and I guess she was confused as to what the issue because the label on the small container clearly shows 2 lbs. Thus, the deli person becomes startled and wanted to basically yell at me for coming to them with a correctable issue. Food bar looked dilapidated with chicken fingers looking that sat for over 5+ hours. The best part is I overhead them say that two other deli employees called out that day. I wonder why?
Response: We appreciate your feedback, please accept our apologies for the unsatisfactory customer service you received. Your concerns have been directed to our Deli Leadership Team for review. Thank you for your time.

Jorden Van Etten: My new grocery store. Very close to my house. It's got everything you could need. Big, clean, and fresh delicious food. I'll be coming here a few times a week. Very pleased with my first visit

Madeleine Richter-Atkinson: Fewer choices than other Safeways, especially in the fresh foods aisle. Often what's available is organic. A second star knocked because I've been to an HEB and generally have a qualm with grocery stores wrapping individual cucumbers in plastic, not providing options for locally grown produce and local products of other forms, and not providing at least one uncooked tortilla option.
Response: Thank you for your honest review, Madeleine. We're always looking at ways to improve and provide our customers with quality products and have shared your concerns with Store Leadership for further review and improvement. Your shopping experience is important to us, and we want to ensure you're satisfied after every time you visit. We appreciate you bringing this to our attention and hope you have a wonderful week.

Loren Stanford: This place is disgusting and apathetic. While in line checking out, with jazz music playing on a speaker, I observed a woman walk past me with a dog on a leash and proceed around open food to go to Starbucks. The problem is the dog was NOT designated as a service animal. To be designated as a service animal, there is training and licensing and the dog is to wear it as a part of them. To leash a dog and “call” it an service animal is rude and disgusting. When I alerted the security guard from Wolf security that he allowed her to enter with a dog around food he looked at me and shook his head. When I went to the front desk to alert the front end manager, her response was we have a sign and once we tell them it has be a service animal and they reply it is one, there’s nothing we can do by law. Umm. No the fact that it does not have appropriate gear deems it not a service dog and it and the person carrying the leash should not be allowed in the store. The fact that they scoffed at me as why do I care shows that they lack any integrity in food safety. This was the deli and salad bar!!! Disgusting, they should be reprimanded and no do without PROPER SERVICE DOG ATTIRE SHOULD ENTER. I’m calling Dcra next to report to them too!
Response: We are sorry to hear about your experience with another customer's dog in our store, Loren. We have shared your comments with our store's Management Team for review. If you would like to be personally contacted about your experience, please chat with us via the Contact Us page on our site.

Jonathan Taylor: Meh. Not a bad shop, but never buy vegetables or meat without checking the Sellby date. Bonus tip: check the wine shelves for hidden gems. A 6 bottle purchase with membership unlocks an extra discount.
Response: Hi Jonathan! — We are delighted to hear you are enjoying our wine prices! However, we are disappointed to learn we are missing the mark on sell-by dates. We have shared your feedback with our team for further review. If you require further assistance, please reach out to us on our Contact US page or on our site using the questions bubble on the lower right-hand side. Thanks so very much.

Ross Auer: Yet another pathetic experience at the deli counter (from whoever was working at 10:30am June 19). I needed a pound of sliced provolone cheese from the deli and the girl at the counter outright refused to do it because she was FaceTiming with somebody on her phone. She actually said she would not help me and that I should go the the packaged cheese isle and find something or just leave. Unfortunately this isn't too out of the normal for the deli counter here. How do these people get and keep their jobs?

gaetan spurgin: Close to the wharf, its a safeway.... so real in your expectations.... Artea seems like it would be better served with a whole foods, but this thrifty store is an easy walk from the wharf and a good place to pick up essentials if your staying in town

Kevin Perry: I'll keep this short. 1...I repeat...1...person working the entire deli, bakery, and pizza area. The lines are 10 deep and no one is helping. The store is extremely disorganized with tones of beggers and homeless outfront despite there being special police everywhere.
Response: Hi there Kevin. This is concerning to us, and we'd like to get you in touch with the Store Director. Hoping you'll give us another chance, please visit our site to chat with us or use our CONTACT US page, so we can reach out to you. We hope to hear from you soon!

Whole Foods Market: what do users think?


nick GERARDO: Whole Foods is by far my top grocery stores but could not give this one five stars. Hard to find products and my biggest complaint is the customer service. I really try/ hardly ask for help. I could not find the water for the life of me, so I decided to ask for help. Man the employee acted like I was asking him some random questions that doesn’t have to do with Whole Foods. Then when I went to check out I got a whole pizza and the price sticker fell off. The employee made get out of line and go get the sticker. Mind blowing. These Whole Foods needs a lot of work.
Response: Thanks for bringing this to our attention, Nick. We're sorry to hear about your experience you had during your recent trip, and we would like to look into this issue further. Please feel free to contact us directly at wfm.com/help with any additional details.

Eye Heru: The customer service here is hit or miss, most days though, it’s a miss. Most employees are not knowledgeable of the products. And some employees do not handle products with the proper sanitary care ie - seafood and deli (please change your gloves after touching meat products and moving on to dairy. Also please wrap the seafood products properly to avoid leakage. And do not use the same gloves to wrap the food that you used to cut the fish. The raw fish is on your gloves that you touch and spread to the outside of the wrapper that a customer now places in their cart. On the flip side, every experience I’ve had with the cheese and wine department has been very good. Now the quality of most products and food here is great. Though the standards aren’t what they use to be it’s still Whole Foods. The store also is a little compact compared to most Whole Foods. If there were more space I think this would be a ideal spot for a PLNT burger.

Khurram Sheharyar: Lots of fresh veggies, poultry, dairy, seafood and meat varieties available. Plus a cute little nursery near the exit offering a wide variety of plants to purchase. Highly recommended!
Response: We're happy to hear you enjoy shopping with us! We appreciate the awesome review, Khurram.

Matt R: There are a few reasons I tend to shop here. First, the parking structure isn’t ridiculously tight like a lot of them are (tip, enter from the back, it’s much less crowded). Second, they have a great beer and wine selection. The staff is helpful, too.

princess peach: This place is prettttty over priced. Average price for a TV dinner was 6$. Um no. Very crowded but my God why are the aisles so tiny ? Shopping here is hell and will leave you broke. Back to Wegmans I go.

Ali Ibrahim: Great place! Friendly staff! Little pricier than giant but high quality organic products!! I have been using the salad bar for lunch and I am loving it! The selection is huge and great quality! I get a great salad within my budget of $10 ! There is also a nice seating area where you can get coffee or a beer if you like! I didn’t like the bathrooms in the cafeteria area! I have pictures but I won’t post them here! But i hope they will give the bathrooms some TLC! It’s a shame such a beautiful and clean store have such a nasty bathroom! can you imagine an employee going to the bathroom that has leaking water all over the floor dragging all those germs on his shoes near your food in the kitchen and everywhere? Hence the 4 stars! Please fix the bathroom!

Hanna Foreman: Convenient location right next to the metro. However, there never seem to be enough people staffing the check out lines and there’s always a 10+ minute wait to check out even when you have one item in the express lane. Depending on the day some customers aren’t wearing masks properly.

Abigail Slagle: Made the mistake of coming here to pick up less than 10 items at 1pm on a Sunday. What should have been a quick 10 minute grocery run took an hour. I waited in line for 40 minutes here. There were 2 registers open, although there were numerous store employees around, just no cashiers apparently. I will not be back to this horribly mis-managed location. Don’t waste your time here like I did.
Response: Hi Abigail, we apologize about your experience at your local store. We have shared your feedback with store leadership. Thank you for taking the time to share with us.

Stephen Griffin: This is our neighborhood Whole Foods, about a 5 min walk from our house. I like the size and the staff is very helpful - especially the meat and fish counter staff. In general the produce is ok with one *very big* exception. Inevitably, the pre-packaged lettuce mixes (spring mix, etc) have at least one variety that is slimy and ruins the rest. In other Whole Food stores the mixes are ok. The problem likely comes from poor drying, overly dense packing or storing at too low a temperature before putting them out on the shelf.
Response: Thank you for taking the time to leave us this review, Stephen. We're glad to have you shop with us!

Dana Savage: My favorite grocery store in the area for most things. Their butcher and fish monger are both very knowledgeable and generally have a great selection.
