Brickmakers Café is a casual waterfront dining experience. Come sit by the water and enjoy lunch or dinner featuring fresh, local favorites. Don’t forget to check out our special brunch menu, too!

Named for the brick kilns that used to the line the riverbank, these beehive brick kilns produced the brick used to build many of the structures in Washington D.C.

One beehive brick kiln remains at the park, serving as a reminder of the rich history of the area.

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! :)
