Ted’s Bulletin is a laid-back, classic American community restaurant, bakery and bar, serving craveable American cuisine in a comfortable and welcoming environment.

We serve breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. Whether it’s family dinner, business lunch, or just a Ted’s Tart and coffee to-go, we’re as adaptable as your life is dynamic. Our breakfast menu is available all day because we believe that the most important meal of the day can be had morning, noon or night.

Ted’s Bulletin is a haven for comfort and celebrating the things we have in common: a hunger for good food at great value, a need for a place to be comfortable being ourselves, and a desire to connect with our community. At Ted’s Bulletin, everyone has a table, and every table has a story to tell.

    I love Ted's - great menu, friendly neighborhood ambience, reliably good food at reasonable prices. We hit some glitches last time, after deciding to order some things we hadn't had - steak very very fatty and undercooked, crab cake benedict had good hollandaise but overcooked eggs and two small grey mushy crabcakes, no refills on soft drinks until asked. But will certainly go back and order previous favorites.

    The service was great! The fried pickles were amazing. The Rueben tacos lacked flavor as well as the chicken Parmesan. The devils food chocolate cake was huge and phenomenal! I loved walking in to the bakery and bar. I didn’t realize they served breakfast all day and that was good to know for future visits. We would definitely go back.

    We had a terrific breakfast here the other day. Our server was super! She was friendly, helpful, and very attentive. All of the food we had was fantastic! I can’t wait to go back to try more items. There were mixed reviews on the Ted’s tarts but that is only because my boys don’t care for shortbread cookies, I LOVED them and ordered one of each flavor to take back to NH with me. Loved our experience and will most definitely be back!!

    Loved the food but Tiffani was the absolute best! She was serving and doing double duty as the bartender and never missed a beat. It was super busy and she made us feel like the only people there. She even ran back to the office and found sunglasses we left behind. She deserves a raise! People like Tiffani are hard to come by anymore. We hope she’s valued and appreciated to the fullest!

    Our waiter didn’t seem to know what was happening. The food came out of order over an extended period of time and items were missing. It wasn’t even busy. He seemed confused we spoke with him. On the bright side, he was friendly. The kitchen seemed disorganized as well. The food was okay, except the cheese sandwich was uncooked. We were surprised, because we have had good experiences in the past.

    The food was a underwhelming. In the photos it was awesome to see all these great desserts but for example, the tarts are okay but would be better served warm. The actual breakfast took a very long time to be brought out from the kitchen and service was a little slow.

    The table offered right next to the serving and takeout pickup was simply unacceptable when you show up for a reservation for a weekday at 6pm and the restaurant is barely 1/3 full. The hostess was stubborn and responded "I don't understand" when I said we needed another table that wasn't next to the noise of the kitchen pickup area. I explained this was the noisiest part of the whole restaurant and we needed a better place so we could talk more easily (my husband couldn't hear any of the exchange - it was that noisy!). The hostess said that we could only sit where she offered because the servers were assigned sections - if that's the reason they would give people awful table locations when the restaurant is so empty, then management needs to get involved and get the hostess to understand a better way to assign sections and not turn away people who actually cared to make a reservation. All the servers were lined up at the other end of the dining room watching this ... I hope they realized that the hostess had just turned away a 22-25% tip on a full dinner with wine. Shame on her! Despite the good comfort food and reasonable value for this area, I can't recommend the Capitol Hill location of Ted's Bulletin. This is the ONLY review that I've contributed to Open Table that has been less than 4 or 5 stars. However, we went up the street to Pennsylvania Avenue and enjoyed a wonderful evening at Joselito, so we made a happy ending out of this brutal treatment.

    Was there for casual business lunch (3 people). Service and food were great. The music was pretty loud. Made hearing the table conversation somewhat difficult. Eat here regularly and background music has never been a problem. It was extra loud today. Other than that, great dining experience.

    Though slightly salty, they have the best hash I’ve ever had. Service was quick and courteous. Prefer the 14th Street location as it is more spacious.

    Not a great option for a vegan, but multiple vegetarian choices for breakfast. I had the avocado toast with poached eggs, and my husband had John's omelet (mushroom and spinach). The food was good and we appreciated not being rushed out since we were dining with friends whom we had not seen in a long time. Although the place was packed, the noise level was still only moderate, so hearing each other wasn't a problem.

    After we were seated, it took about 20 minutes before we finally got a server’s attention. They apologized profusely, saying each server thought the other was waiting on us. But for that slight hiccup, everything else was very nice the rest of the evening. Both the service and the food were great.

    This was our first visit to this location, and it was a different vibe from the Reston location we’re used to. Food was good, as usual, with the exception of the short rib. Normally we have good luck with it, but this time is was hard as a rock - you almost couldn’t cut it with a knife. We sent it back, then shared dishes with the one who ordered it because the portions are extremely generous. No one went hungry! The service was great, and the manager stopped by to apologize for the short rib.
