A Baked Joint

Top choice cafe in Downtown & Penn Quarter

Order at the counter then take your luscious, heaped-on-housemade-bread sandwich – perhaps the fried egg and goat's cheese on a fluffy biscuit, or the Nutella and banana on whole-wheat sourdough – to a bench or table in the big, open room. Natural light streams in the floor-to-ceiling windows. Not hungry? It's also a great place for a well-made latte.

Beer, wine and cocktails are also available. Sweet treats come from sibling Baked & Wired in Georgetown.
