Surprise! Quick service , homemade food without the elegance or price of the high falooting places in the area. Good waffles, eggs, ham. Two of us under 26 with tip. Fantastic

This was a fun little stop after we visited Ford Theatre. The staff was quirky and entertaining. Food pretty good. We had breakfast/lunch. Salmon cake was really good. Customers were from all walks of life. Counter wraps around most of space.

I was looking forward to this place but went 3 times when visiting DC and it was always either empty with rude waiters or just closed. Not a place i would recommend to go. Food was just average !

Lincoln's Waffle House is a place most people will walk by and not give a second thought. Its located in a touristy area located in historic downtown DC. The exterior of the restaurant is not the most appealing, including and old faucet that's being used...More

We visited here once again when back in DC and it did not disapoint. The food was excellent, the service friendly and funny once again and everything was just how we remembered it to be. We would have no problems recommending it to anyone.

We went to the Mall very early on Sunday morning to see the sunrise. We then planned to go to breakfast. There is NOTHING close to the mall. This place is an absolute local hole in the wall. It was very dirty. The food was...More

I did not see Scrappie on the menu. I ate pancakes and bacon and it was very good. The place was very crowded but everyone ate and moved on so no one had to wait. It must be a local favorite and a hidden gem.

I don't recall anything on the menu specifying or highlighting gluten free bakery items. However, considering their helpful attitude, I would recommend calling them in advance and asking. They might offer a few things.
