About Leopold's Kafe & Konditorei


Breakfast, German
3315 M St NW
Washington, DC 20007
NW Northwest Dr
Silver Spring, MD

This Austrian cafe and its pretty patio draw a fashionable crowd to Georgetown design-shop mecca Cady’s Alley. Laze over honeyed waffles, yogurt muesli, and kaiserschmarrn—a pancake-like soufflé studded with currants—along with fresh-squeezed juices and strong coffee. The lineup is heavy on sweets, so satisfy savory cravings with the regular menu, which includes such morning-appropriate dishes as a flatbread with smoked salmon and a mushroom tart. Daily 8 to 4.
