  • This is probably my favorite bookstore anywhere. Everyone is very polite and helpful whenever I visit. In each section they have a very careful curated selection of interesting books set out to browse. I think I would enjoy each book I pick up from those selections--and they change often so there is usually something new to discover. There is also a small cafe in the back if you are looking for a beverage.

  • A unique business with a joint bookstore and cafe that has a spectacular variety of dining options. I spent my Saturday exploring some of the independent bookstores around DC. Kramerbooks has one of the more unique setups where it’s bookstore in the front and restaurant/bar in the back. The location of the business is easily accessible and right outside of the metro station. Although the bookstore is pretty typical (think a smaller Politics & Prose), the dining experience is wonderful and is the reason why they get 5 stars. I ate at the bar and ordered a Crab Omelette and coffee and was not sure what to expect. However, the omelette ended up being one of the best omelettes I’ve tasted and was reasonably priced! It had the perfect pairing of massive amounts of crab, some corn, and egg. I highly recommend coming here for brunch and trying the crab omelette!

  • All reviews here are done by local guide that they paid to get a good reviews. Try to find reviews by real customers and you will not find. I simply can't imagine how this place deteriorates so much. The food is no longer tasty - they tastes as if they were just microwaved the frozen food. They are either too salty or too bland (possible that they have changed their chef). More importantly, the waitresses and waiters provide bad service. They do not come to add water when your water is out, and they do not give you the table you want. The children's section is so narrow and crowded that it is not worth bothering. And also they do not treat people fairly and kindly. Disappointing indeed.

  • I personally think the menu could use more options, but all the food is good. Super hipster vibe, but it's perfect if you're into the sort of thing. They also have a fantastic book selection!

  • This is truly one of the finest places in Washington. I am absolutely in love with this place. Such a soothing and calm vibe , every visit to this place has always came out as a good time . The food is exquisitely delicious and the service is amazingly warm.
