Ramon, the manager was amazing. This cafe was recommended by a local and we were beyond impressed. The atmosphere and food were great but, the service was beyond. I would recommend this spot for brunch to anyone visiting Georgetown or DC!

This place has good food and kind staff! There is outdoor seating, though be prepared in the cold months, as there is some, but not much outdoor heating (like heat lamps).

Peacock Café has the nicest owners and servers, a great menu of modern American options, and the best ambiance (yes, even while dealing with the pandemic). My group thoroughly enjoyed our late afternoon lunch on the patio! And Peacock's shoestring fries are the best!!

Peacock Cafe tends to get overshadowed by its fancy neighbor, Cafe Milano, but I assure you it’s just as good—if not better!

The cafe seems a bit overpriced for the food I got. The taste of the eggs benedict was objectively good, but it was served to me on toasted sourdough bread rather than on an English muffin, which was strange. The meal also came with french fries instead of breakfast potatoes, which was a bit peculiar. That said, the service was good and the restaurant has great public health measures in place, including offering hand sanitizer at our table and providing little paper pastry bags for our masks. The outdoor tables wre also spread apart at a safe distance.

It was me and my friend's first time to dine here. We sat outside and enjoyed our meal al fresco. I enjoyed the pasta, while my friend enjoyed her burger. It's a nice spot in Georgetown, without being in the midst of M Street's hustle and bustle, but still close enough!

Three friends wanted a nice lunch spot amid the CoVid restrictions and chose Peacock Cafe. It was perfect! Great food, and a most welcoming and attentive team of managers and staff. We will return soon and enthusiastically endorse it for a great meal in Georgetown!

The service was excellent. I had the seafood jambalaya, it was rich and delicious. Maybe the salmon was a bit overcooked. Very good rice.
