In the everyday humdrum of life, somewhere between home and work, we all need a ‘third place’ to go – outside of the commute and away from our couches. We all need that place where we can escape the stresses of everyday responsibilities but still connect to our local community and the outside world. We’ve been travelers’ home-away-from-home and part of what defines home to many in the DC community, since 2005.


We combine food and drink in a way that you’ll only find at Open City, serving affordable comfort food like all day breakfast, brick oven pizza and pastries and desserts baked fresh in-house. Our full bar and espresso counter offer brunch and café cocktails, craft beers with local options and a wealth of wine values. In fact, we challenge you to get a better espresso drink with brunch, dinner and dessert anywhere in America.
