The Washington National Cathedral has always held a special place in my heart because I graduated from the Girls school. Recently I was in the area for a business meeting and was advised by a colleague that a unique cafe had recently opened on the grounds of the National Cathedral.

Open City Coffeehouse & Café is located in the former baptistery and herb cottage with a stunning view of the National Cathedral. One can either dine inside or outside on the deck and enjoy the captivating flowers, trees and landscaping.

Open City Coffeehouse & Café is a charming little gem for all DC area residents to enjoy and treat out of town guests. For all visitors coming to DC area, you are in for a treat, a fantastic spot to savor a tea with a fresh pastry or a light lunch. When you dine or sit on the outdoor deck you will feel like you are a part of history with close proximity and amazing view of the Cathedral and the manicured and peaceful flowers and landscaping.
