fantastic! - Edit

This is such a cute little place! Great atmosphere. My mom got the vegan burger and she really liked it. I got the South Indian curry and it was delicious and had a lovely presentation. It's a fantastic post-museum stop and the food came out really quickly. If I lived here, I would go to this place all the time!

Pros: atmosphere, food, presentation

A Tea Shop with a Twist - Edit

We happened to come across this place after our visit to the Spy Museum and the National Archives. It's a casual place but with a large selection of delicious teas (the tea shop where you can purchase the teas is right next door) and delicious food. A nice selection of vegans and vegetarians with everything marked clearly on a separate vegan menu. We ordered the tempeh burger and one of the veggie bento bowl. Everything was fresh and tasty. Only complaint was that it took them quite long to get the food out. Good place to relax and take a load off.

Cons: slow service

Great little tea house cafe - Edit

Teaism is all over the District, but it is a positive semi-ubiquitous tea house because it has a menu that tells you (if you ask or go on-line) what is veg*n and if anything can be veganized!

The teas are splendidly refreshing on a hot day or warmly soothing on a cold day. The entrees range from a bento box to fabulously fresh and large sized portions of side entrees like seaweed salad, pumpkin, spinach and green beans. The large entrees or big dishes include tempeh scramble for brekkie or brunch, along with some delicious stir fries, rice soup and even a tempeh burger.

I love this little haven because it makes me feel secure that what I order is vegan. I also love being able to get a few sides to nibble on with tea! Though the portions are hearty!

Pros: Vegan menu markings available, Tea, Side dishes galore!

Cons: Mocha is only vegan dessert, Sorbet is vegan, but cookies not
