Here's what people say after redeeming their Nift gift.
They were kind, even when busy during the lunch rush. Smoothie was great!
I had Vietnamese soup. Was great
The food was very delicious. Service was quick. I would not have discovered this place of not for nift.
The location is very clean and calm. The food was FANTASTIC and the staff had no problems with the coupon.
We went during closing time, but the staff was still patient and helpful in explaining the menu
Best pho I’ve had in dc
Fun that you can customize every dish
Solid Vietnamese food: not life-changing, but definitely good, and great sauce selection.
Great food, good service. Really clean restaurant
Staff were friendly and helpful. Entree prices were good.
Very friendly staff, good quality food. Glad to try this place!
Traditional Vietnamese food made fast and high quality. The taste never fails and their menu is vast
Really lovely quiet food court-style spot to eat lunch when you don't want to be surrounded by people downtown. I got the tofu eggplant rice bowl, and was a bit disappointed to find that it was actually quin oa, not rice. Regardless, the staff were sweet and agreed to add some leafy greens when I verbalized my shock that there were no visible vegetable in the dish.
Very friendly and good food
Good food, great staff, but... • Website needs to reflect that only drinks served after 5:30 PM • Please correct prices so paper menu, online menu, reusable menu order sheets, and lit menu board at restaurant all have same prices!!! Unfair and unnecessary to staff and customers
Very tasty! Ingredients were fresh, and the portion size was pretty big (I had leftovers!). I spoke with some regulars who seemed to really enjoy going there as well.
Best service. Thanks
Amazing service. Best pho I've ever had
Omg i loved this place. The mushrooms and pickled veggies and spiced chicken were delicious!
I ordered the shrimp salad which was very good. I also ordered a taro milk bubble tea. The milk tea was good, the tapioca were undercooked and hard. I would go again but order food and milk tea (no bubble)
Staff were super sweet and helpful. Ingredients were fresh and yummy!
The food was great and the prices were really reasonable!
I ordered grilled chicken pho, it was amazing!!! The soup and chicken were both flavorful. Good portion as well.
Quick service and friendly staff along with good food
Great veggie sandiwch
This is a low key place, but perfect for weekend lunch while out & about. We had a noodle bowl & a sandwich; both were fantastic.
I love Abe's cafe! The staff is so kind and the bahn mi and bun noodle bowls are delicious!
Delicious food, great options, fairly priced. The only thing: I wish they mixed in the salad dressing (instead of leaving it to just sit on top). Very convenient location, steps away from metro center metro stop Super friendly staff ! Overall good experience !
honestly had no idea this place existed (and it's a 5 min walk from my office). Food was delicious, staff was nice, and there was plenty of room to sit and eat
Decent sized potion for price
Food was excellent and staff was very helpful with the NIFT certificate. I will definitely return! Thank you!
Abe cafe is a quaint hole in the wall, one would not typically here about unless already in the “know.” This is one of those authentic to dc establishments. Get the pho!
Great food and great service! Will be back.
Nice but not eco friendly. They use too much plastic
The food was fast and fresh!
Great food. Good option for a quick lunch.
Great business tucked away in the heart of DC. V cute space, great food.
The bahn mi sandwich was very tasty. I went there at 3 and the staff was a bit slow and disorganized. The girl as the sandwich counter was just looking blankly at the order slip and eventually a man came out and made the sandwich. I also ordered a Boba tea. I was annoyed because the drink was overflowing when I got it. Then I had trouble getting the straw into the cup because there was too much ice and the drink overflowed even more. The girl at the counter just laughed.
Good place, nice staff
Great hidden gem. Nice manager provided a menu tour. Food (Pho) was delicious. Staff was friendly. Cool DC spot!
Cute shop I never would have found otherwise!
the bahn mi was soooo tasty
Great food and friendly staff!!
Walk past this restaurant almost everyday. Thought it was only a souvenir shop. Good service. Classic Asian food.
