District of Cathleen

I'M a fun-loving grad student who is hell bent on not letting my schooling interfere with my education. I love that DC has so much to offer, for all kinds of people, though my preference is anything that is free (*cough, grad student, cough*). I am studying to be a tour guide, because I love helping travelers make the most out of their experience. Check out my website for the perspective of one who is young and frugal, highlighting DC food, events, and news that I like.

District of Cathleen's Reviews & Comments
Florida Avenue Grill 10/7/2010
Hands down, the best breakfast in DC. In upstate NY, we only have Greek diners, so when the default answer was biscuits rather than toast, I knew I was in for some southern eats. FL Ave Grill does NOT disappoint, the homefries are the best I've ever had, and come garnished with grilled onions and peppers. The waitresses make it feel like home...you'll likely get called pumpkin, sugar, and/or honey at least twice during your visit. If you're lucky enough to get a counter seat, most of the cooks on the griddle will go out of their way to keep you entertained. Just writing this has got me in the mood for some bacon...not scrapple though, that's just too far for me.
