“A must for any celebrity visiting the city, Ben’s Chili Bowl has been a DC staple since it opened on U Street in 1958. The half-smoke toting restaurant’s storefront is plenty Instagrammable on its own, but the famous Ben’s Chili Bowl mural – featuring distinguished African American trailblazers and celebrities – is iconic. The colorful wall honors the likes of Barack and Michelle Obama, Dave Chappelle, Prince and Harriet Tubman.”

“Located just down Monroe Street, I’m at The Coupe at least once a week! They do coffee and pastries to-go ($3-$5), as well as sit down breakfast ($15pp), lunch, and dinner. It’s pretty big so there isn’t usually a wait (Sometimes for brunch), and very reasonably priced. Definitely worth checking out! ”

Bakery
“The best vegan baked goods and sweets in the city! Doran is a two-time winner of Cupcake Wars and its shows. My faves—any cupcake, Cowvin cookie, or Little Devil. They also have a coffee cake to die for! They have Wi-Fi and coffee so if you need somewhere to hang for an hour or two after checkout, I highly recommend this spot. Also, if you or your guests are vegan, Sticky Fingers has a sister restaurant, Fare Well, in the H Street corridor. ”

“Kafe Leopold (+ Konditorei) is the exact antidote to those too-cute-for-words pastry shops. Sure, there may be 26 different desserts to tempt your sweet tooth here, but there’s nothing twee about this sleek space tucked in an alley behind posh M Street. Descend the stairs and discover a lovely courtyard garden—complete with a trickling fountain—before stepping into a relaxed arena with eye-catching photos and a decidedly modern ambience. Savory choices include rostbraten vom Angusrind and bratwurst, but even with their delicious homemade taste, it's the final course that is first priority. Peruse the long list of Kaffeespezialitäten, and then nibble on a slice of esterhazy (five-layer hazelnut cake), a delicious éclair or any other can't-go-wrong treat. This hidden away restaurant serves European-style salads, savory tarts, and entrees like schnitzel and grilled salmon.The patio just off M Street is also a draw during nice weather. Go there for: A casual brunch or coffee meeting.”
