Well loved by the locals. Great for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Vegan/Vegetarian options.

Busboys & Poets is so much more than a restaurant. Enjoy Poetry slams? Go to Busboys. Interested in partaking in community conversations surrounding social inequities? Go to Busboys. The food is good, but you get so much more here than a full stomach.

This is where I go to people watch, get some work done, or enjoy poetry slam. It's a DC institution with various events, open mic nights, restaurant and bar. 10 min walk.

This is the original location with the U street vibes, best vegan / vegetarian friendly food in town. Usually busy
