Chinatown/Convention Center

Spy City Café

800 F St. N.W.
International Spy Museum
Washington, DC, 20004 , United States
TEL: (202) 393-7798

Adjacent to the lobby of the International Spy Museum, this casual café is ideal for a quick bite before or after touring the exhibits. While counter service and simple booths create a no-frills atmosphere, the restaurant also features a soundtrack of James Bond movie tunes and tabletop maps showing the locations of past covert action in the D.C. area. The traditional American menu includes breakfast dishes like silver dollar pancakes and corned beef hash as well as lunchtime salads and sliders, such as Pigs Undercover–homemade garlic sausage wrapped in cheddar pastry.

Insider Tip:

Pair your meal with a hard-to-find Moxie cola; one of the first mass-produced soft drinks in the nation, Moxie was first created in 1876 and has an unusual bittersweet taste.
