Part coffeehouse, part restaurant, Open City is open early and closes late. It’s an easy spot for a family breakfast or afternoon pit-stop—i.e. no frills and something on the menu for everyone (from breakfast sandwiches and grilled cheese, to kale caesar, pizza, and grilled chicken). The outdoor patio is lovely on not-too-humid days, but there’s a cozy, neighborhood café-bar feel inside. The standalone Open City is near the Smithsonian National Zoo, and they also have an outpost at the National Cathedral.
