We will definitely be regulars

We didn't realize this was so close to us we moved from Alexandria and loved to go walk by the water and eat if we wanted to. We were always driving back and had no idea this was here and so close. The cafe is so awesome workers were friendly the food and mimosas were great! We will definitely be regulars can't wait to go back! :)

Heaven on the Potomac

Heaven on the Potomac. Excellent, clean, modern small buffet with glass walls and clean counter. Friendly staff; great experience! Real and true and super flavor-stacked foods: soups, sandwiches, crisp cheese griddle 'wiches, wings, drinks, turkey clubs. Broken cold coffee machine. It's still a perfect setting and view. Girl was cutting fresh turkey. Guy was brewing coffee, another came with silverware. Great job! :)
