Located in the heart of Washington, D.C., steps from the National Mall, and across from Pershing Park, a national park home to the new World War I Memorial, Café du Parc is reminiscent of a Parisian-inspired sidewalk café.

Nestled between The White House and the U.S. Capitol, surrounded by the sights and sounds of the nation’s capital, Café du Parc’s seasonal outside terrace remains a trendy locale for al fresco dining by both visitors and Washington, D.C. locals alike.

Paying homage to traditional French cooking, the restaurant offers diners various culinary creations from coffee and pastries at its coffee shop, Le Café, to breakfast, lunch, dinner, and brunch on Sunday on its outside terrace or inside the main dining room. We gladly pay for your parking with the Willard Hotel Vallet, or in the Willard Garage when joining us for dinner.
Seatings are restricted to 90 minutes.

    The food was delicious and the atmosphere was great. The desserts were hit or miss but those that were a hit were delicious. However, our waiter was snippy and argued with us. He removed wine glasses before they were empty, and was generally grouchy and unkind. He kind of ruined what would have been a great meal.

    We went for breakfast. Food and service was ok. Typical breakfast items. Price was your standard overpriced big city fare. Location was near the White House and other tourist spots.
