A Day In Georgetown
Grab a breakfast of omelets or crepes at this quaint European cafe. The off-the-menu nutella latte is excellent for someone with an early sweet tooth. Alternatively, Kafe Leopold (a modern Viennese style coffeehouse) and Farmers Fishers Bakers (casual first bake on weekdays, brunch buffet on weekends) both serve up delicious breakfasts.
Baked & Wired
This trendy cafe is home to the best coffee in Georgetown as well as an excellent array of quirky cupcakes and baked goods. You can't go wrong with any choice there. Don't like coffee? Their iced teas and iced chai lattes are excellent. If you aren't getting baked goods, skip the long weekend line and head inside to the right to place your order. Located on Jefferson St.
This bridge ruin is a hidden gem of Georgetown and a perfect place to watch the sunset over the Potomac river. Look down and to the left and you'll see the prestigious Potomac Boat Club, home to some Olympic rowers. Directions: At 34th and M st, head past the Ukrainian embassy and cross the bridge over the canal. Head west on the path under the overpass. The bridge will be immediately to your left.
Farmers Fishers Bakers
This restaurant on the waterfront is a crowd pleaser with options for all - sushi, tacos, gumbo, burgers... Order strategically because appetizers and dessert are some of the best this restaurant has to offer. Take some time while waiting on reservations or a post-food coma walk down the waterfront boardwalk and toward the park.
