Foursquare Tips

  • The place to take all visitors to D.C.
  • Landing somewhere between a coffee shop, restaurant and social center, this location in Shaw puts local authors and artists in touch with one another over a quick bite.
  • Free wifi wooo
  • Insider tip: Get the tempeh sandwich. It's crunchy, sweet and peppery, the tempeh sandwich, layered with roasted red pepper, arugula and smoky tempeh (a fermented, firm protein derived from soy).
  • Bitches say A! Affordable quality cuisine, attentive, skilled servers and a lively nurturing ambiance that makes you want to stay awhile.
  • awesome turkey burger!
  • Hands down one of my favourite places in the world. Iraqi owned, Jordanian managed, socially with-it, every city should emulate B and P
  • If you don't know what Firesheep is, and you're surfing the wifi here you need to. You could get seriously hacked. Practice safe surfing.
  • Rita's must haves: shrimp and grits, white chocolate banana pudding :-).
  • Two words. Vegan Nachos!
  • I am sadden that they got rid of the Key Lime Pie, it was so delicious! Now I have to find a new place to get my sweet and tart fix!
  • Order the shrimp and grits when you finally snag a table here. The shrimp are sauteed with asparagus, roasted corn, and tomatoes in a Cajun cream sauce alongside a basil grits cake.
  • Their Chai Latte is delicious, and extra frothy. Great place to come alone or with friends.
  • If you want to wake up, get the triple espresso "big daddy"!
