Spy City Cafe

The International Spy Museum's casual cafe specializes in hot dogs.

From the Insider’s Guide to Museums, May 2005

For a quick bite, head to the International Spy Museum's cool Spy City Café, which serves deli sandwiches and wraps, grilled panini, and a variety of green salads. Our favorites are the Spy City dogs–Hebrew National franks dressed up with creative toppings ($2.25 to $3.50). Try the spicy Red Square dog, a half-smoke laden with Dijon mustard, chili sauce, red peppers, and red-cabbage slaw; the Eastern Bloc dog, with sauerkraut and fried pickles; or the Langley dog, dripping with chili, cheddar, and onions. Wash them down with a Boylan's black-cherry soda or Route 22 root beer.
