Fodor's Review

For a perfect Saturday morning or afternoon on the Hill, take a walk around the Capitol, a stroll through Eastern Market, and then dig in to a hefty pile of blueberry buckwheat pancakes from this casual counter. Informal seating makes it ideal for kids (though be prepared to pay extra if they want real maple syrup). Favorites include eggs, grits, or pancakes in the morning and crab cakes, fried shrimp, or fish for lunch. Expect long lines and plan to be in line by noon on Saturday in order to ensure availability of every dish. Follow convention and order quickly, eat, and give up your seat for the next customer.
