Inspired by the bustling brasseries of Europe, Café Riggs offers traditional grace through a reimagined lens to bring a modern restaurant to D.C. Nestled on the ground floor of the Riggs Washington DC hotel, the restaurant serves an all-day menu from the bar, café, and dining room, offering a menu of classics and innovative originals in a stately setting.
Close relationships with local producers — such as Small Planes Coffee, Chesapeake Smokehouse, and Vaughan Cheese — reflect the kitchen’s commitment to sourcing the freshest, most sustainable ingredients. Weekend brunch service offers elixirs, freshly baked pastries, and decadent classics like French toast and eggs royale, while the dinner menu offers refined, traditional dishes including seafood and plant-based cuisine.
