This was a life saver for both great short order options and the convenience of having beverages and snacks close to our hotel.

Ran across the street from The Westin while in town for business. The food at The Westin is terrible and this place was a pleasant surprise. Fresh buffet, great selection of snacks, and the sandwiches made upon request looked amazing. Friendly staff and quick service. Highly recommend!

If staying in any of the hotels within a block radius, you will enjoy a quick and affordable breakfast at this cafe which is stocked with wonderful goodies, drinks, snacks and makes a fabulous breakfast sandwich.

Little cafe directly across from our hotel, the Westin Georgetown. Discovered on our last day here and boy am I glad we did! Fresh made breakfast sandwiches and omelettes. Great coffee and large pastry selection. Two sandwiches two hash browns a large coffee and a chocolate milk set us back $17.00. Considering we spent $20.00 on two coffees and a... More

Steps away from the Fairmont and Westin hotels. Great alternative to expensive hotel options and better than Starbuck's menu choices. Had breakfast and lunch there. Both very good.

The Uptowner Café is not fancy. It's a cross between a sandwich shop and a convenience store. But when I stopped in to get a sandwich to go on a Thursday evening, the service was quick and friendly, and the sandwich was delicious. They don't have many vegetarian options - just the Uptowner (fresh mozzarella and tomato on a baguette)... More

After doing a walking tour of the area, I stumbled across this cafe. I chose their homemade roasted turkey and cranberry sandwiches - of which all four in my party devoured. Decided to go here for breakfast as well and their omelettes were made in front of us with all fresh ingredients. Good coffee too. Great food, great price.

The breakfast sandwich is very nice. If your looking for healthy food this is the place to come. Not much of a seating area and the staff are pleasant but don't really smile much.
