E, October 14, 2019

Traditional Vietnamese food made fast and high quality. The taste never fails and their menu is vast

Natasha, October 14, 2019

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.

Margot, October 11, 2019

Very friendly and good food

Anna, October 8, 2019

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

Kelly, October 7, 2019

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.

Ivanka, October 7, 2019

Best service. Thanks

Emiko, October 6, 2019

Amazing service. Best pho I've ever had

Sebastian, October 5, 2019

Omg i loved this place. The mushrooms and pickled veggies and spiced chicken were delicious!

Dan, October 2, 2019

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)

Clara, October 2, 2019

Staff were super sweet and helpful. Ingredients were fresh and yummy!

Dayna, October 1, 2019

The food was great and the prices were really reasonable!

Emily, September 30, 2019

Sharlene, September 23, 2019

This is a low key place, but perfect for weekend lunch while out & about. We had a noodle bowl & a sandwich; both were fantastic.

Anthony, September 21, 2019

Great locsti

Jamie, September 21, 2019

I love Abe's cafe! The staff is so kind and the bahn mi and bun noodle bowls are delicious!

Jenna, September 20, 2019

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 !

Sara, September 19, 2019

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

Antonia, September 19, 2019

Decent sized potion for price

Kumi, September 19, 2019

Ariel, September 18, 2019

Food was excellent and staff was very helpful with the NIFT certificate. I will definitely return! Thank you!

Wendy, September 17, 2019

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!

Lo, September 17, 2019

Great food and great service! Will be back.

Eric, September 16, 2019

Nice but not eco friendly. They use too much plastic

Abel, September 14, 2019

The food was fast and fresh!

Candida, September 13, 2019

Great food. Good option for a quick lunch.

Milind, September 13, 2019

Great business tucked away in the heart of DC. V cute space, great food.

Vin, September 13, 2019

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.

Angela, September 12, 2019

Good place, nice staff

Alex, September 9, 2019
