Located on DC's lively 14th Street Corridor, Cafe Saint-Ex is generally packed with locals relaxing after a long day at the office, or just looking for a fun get-together with friends. The menu at this French-inspired bistro features fresh, local ingredients, while the staff have a reputation for providing quick, friendly service.
Upon being seated, be sure you choose a cocktail or pint of craft beer to sip while you peruse the menu (regulars recommend the unique "New York Sour," which combines bourbon, lemon, and red wine). The food menu focuses on a blend of American and Continental dishes, like crispy duck confit, house-ground burgers topped with bacon and mushrooms, and deep-dish veggie quiche served with mixed greens on the side. Whatever you order, you can be sure it will arrive quickly and with a smile, as good service is one of the reasons this place is so popular.
