  1. Ahh everything looks really really good! Especially the drinks and the dessert with mousse O_O

    Parking dt is really a travesty, most times I rather just pay the $6 uber down there then deal with all the madness.

      Hi J.S. – I want to go back and eat allllllll the desserts. All of them. And then drink strong coffee so the sugar from the sweets make my coffee seem sweet. We could probably do an Uber for a fair price from Jake’s but not from up in far away suburb land. Mostly I just skip Downtown but mornings don’t seem so bad now.

    You parked right in front?! AGH! That’s amazing! I hate going downtown because parking is hell, you’re so right about that. Those desserts look incredible and your sandwich looks fab. I love good bread on a sandwich! Look at that eggs benedict…I DIE. My favorite! You and I should be breakfast buddies, LOL! πŸ˜‰

      Hi Lauren! Haha! I’m glad I’m not the only one who gets all excited about good parking spots. This place is on G Street so it’s not like a fancy place on 5th but still – exciting! We should be breakfast buddies and try eggs benedicts all over town. Must find the best ones! πŸ™‚

  3. Yay! I’m glad you got to go try this place out. Bert keeps wanting the St. Barthe but they didn’t have it both times we went. Am hoping to go again during the winter break. I haven’t tried a sandwich yet. The cocoa that Jake and T got looks good. TC would love that.I wish I could enjoy eggs benedict but the thought of soft, goopy eggs doesn’t do it for me. Great last photo too! Magazine worthy!

      Hi CC – Oh man, they have so many delicious looking desserts and pastries, it was hard to just pick two! I kind of want to try their cheesecake as well. The manager told us it was pretty popular and not quite like other cheesecakes (re: American cheesecake, haha). I’ve found that I like poached eggs, those don’t bother me for some reason. At least…. when cooked right. πŸ™‚ Thanks so much for your nice comments!! It means a lot to me πŸ™‚

    Where do you find these gems, Mary? I’m starting to depend on you too much for reviews. Who needs Yelp anyway?
