I was in Washington DC on an errand and noted an interesting looking cafe at the corner of R Street and 1st Street NW. I returned there later to have lunch. I am glad I did as the Big Bear Cafe, with terrific atmosphere and great food, is now my favorite brunch spot.
Call Your Mother – A Jew-ish Deli
I first had Call Your Mother bagels at a charity I volunteer at, as they regularly donate bags of bagels. Their bagels were quite distinctive, so I made a mental note to eat at one of their locations. As good as their bagels are, fresh from the oven they are even better.
