“The sandwiches at this local butcher shop are legendary. Try the four-meat Italian grinder, turkey club or dig into grab-and-go sides such as potato salad and coleslaw. The shop also serves daily to-go dinner specials during the week. Go there for: Stellar sandwiches and gourmet sausages.”

“The only downside to Dupont Circle is that there isn't a great grocery store nearby. Folks in the neighborhood have nicknamed this the "Soviet Safeway" because it's not really a full grocery store and is often out-of-stock on things. Still, it's the closest. Other options include the Harris Teeter on Kalorama Road (in Adams-Morgan), Whole Foods on P Street, or Glen's Garden Market (organic, but insanely expensive).”

Bakery
$$
“The German style bakery has quite the selection of cookies, pastries and cakes. It also has a great selection of sandwiches and take home food. If you're looking for a quick bit or to fill that hankering for a sweet treat, just walk down the street and check this place out!”
