Citysearch Editorial Review – Leopold’s brings the sophistication of a European cafe to a charming alleyway off of Georgetown’s bustling M Street, offering eclectic options for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There's seating both on their patio and inside by the large bay windows. Choose from more than a dozen Austrian dishes--some classics include the Liptaur cheese and Pecorino-topped crostini and the spicy bratwurst with sauerkraut and fingerling potatoes. For a light meal, opt for the tea sandwiches. A display of pastries and desserts spans the dining room, tempting patrons with milk chocolate sachets, mouse-filled pralines and sweet danishes.
Euro bar meets DC – Returned to Leopold's and was not disappointed. I keep going back and back and back - can't help myself. It was my friend's first time there and he LOVED it. It was bustling and, as usual, it had a Euro (sort of Berlin-ish) vibe with hardly any English being spoken at nearby tables. I love to see how the women and men dress here. It's a very stylish crowd. I also love it that the food is distinctive, i.e., you won't find it in many D.C. eateries (for example, the "scrambled souffle" breakfast dish - which is basically thin pancakes cut into strips with a lingonberry type sauce - still my favorite). My friend and I had sandwiches - excellent - and coffee - excellent - and one of the chocolate pastries we spied earlier - phenomenal. When I went back this week I tried one of the fresh strawberry pastries Yummm. Good service, too. So five stars it is - still.
Perfect Lunch Spot – When looking for a classy, yet casual lunch spot in Georgetown that isn't overcrowded by tourists, Leopold's fits the bill. This sophisticated restaurant is located off the beaten path in Cady's Alley. With floor-to-ceiling windows and a lovely outdoor patio, you could easily mistake it for a cute bistro in Europe. The food is outstanding, although a tad pricey. Regardless, it's worth it. The only problem is that the place is so cute, you'll dread going back to the office once lunch is finished.
A touch of Europe in Georgetown – If you're looking for a nice little spot with some European flare, Leopold's Kafe and Konditorei is perfect. The atmosphere is chic and bustling, with an open-air seating area and a main dining area with windows that open wide to the outside. The food is tasty, ranging from salads to tarts to traditional German cuisine, like schnitzel and bratwurst. I've tried their arugula salad with Medjool dates, walnuts, onions, ricotta and balsamic vinaigrette, which was delicious. Their wild mushroom tart is small but flavorful. Leopold's is known for their decadent pastries and desserts, which you must try when you come here. Their Karamel-Grey is a small but rich chocolate cake with layers of Earl Grey tea-infused chocolate ganache, which gives the cake a nice kick.
Prices here at Leopold's are typical for Georgetown but those used to the cheaper food in areas like Chinatown may find it too expensive for their taste. But an average of $7.50 is worth it for their desserts. Come in the early afternoon for a nice sweet snack and you can beat the rush before dinner to sit outside.
