dining out: pound

There was sad restaurant news in Hill East last month: Crepes on the Corner shut down. It'd only been around for a few months, and it was always full when Tony and I were there. But then it shut down, and I was sad. It seemed to be such a good addition to the neighborhood in Southeast at 15th and C streets. 

Then I started to read sad things about Pound on Pennsylvania Avenue near Eastern Market. The owner was considering closing because business was so slow. And I'd be doubly disappointed if another coffee shop-type neighborhood restaurant closed on the Hill, so Tony and I went there for breakfast on Sunday with a friend. 

The weather was beautiful, so we ate on the back patio, which was perfect and cozy. The food was pretty good, too, although the menu was very limited. We had our choice of various types of croissant sandwiches. I went with the Italian Elvis croissant, which had Nutella, sliced bananas and honey, and Tony had the huevos rancheros croissant. Both were tasty.

Here's hoping Pound is able to survive its slow patch. (And maybe add a few things to its breakfast menu.)

  1. I've heard the same thing about Pound, and I was just thinking that we need to go eat there and support their business!
