  1. The only place we go for sandwiches is the Breadline. No place else
    compares. They do a great Cuban but everything else they do is head and
    shoulders over any other source.

  2. The bakery- cafe started by Mark Furstenburg (who is now a consultant) serves really good bread and bread-based foods — sandwiches, pizzas, empanadas and so on — to DC’s power elite. Lobbyists, tourists and six-figure-salary lawyers feed on fresh-baked doughnuts in the morning and handmade sandwiches at lunchtime. The pizzas are also popular, and they follow the seasons. In summer, they come topped with grilled vegetables; in cooler months they get the heavy treatment. There are also soups and salads on hand for the calorie-counting crowd.

    Ordering your lunch here can be a little confusing at first; you order at one counter and pay at another while jockeying for standing room in the always-crowded room. But once you watch the regulars in action a few times, you’ll figure it out. Don’t forget to pick up a baguette to take home for dinner while you’re in for lunch. Bread Line closes at 5PM, so you’ll miss the boat if you wait.

  3. ps Breadline as a backstory too – I can’t remember it just now but the
    owner’s sister is somebody – an interesting family on the Washington
    scene. A lot of World Bank staff eat there. IMF too. Sometimes it seems
    like a locale for important offline meetings. I think they enjoyed being
    DC’s kitchen to the World Bank staff and protestors both. cheers.
