We almost always take the touristy “Hop on-Hop off” (HOHO) bus tours when we travel. It is pricey, but it’s a great way to get a good overview of whatever area you’re visiting so you can get the ‘lay of the land’ and then go back to where you want to spend more time. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t great the day we were on the bus, but we did happen upon our favorite breakfast spot in Washington D.C.
The HOHO bus let us off and across the street from Ford’s Theater -yes where President Lincoln was assassinated and outside Madame Tussauds Wax Museum (where Mickey ran into none other than Samuel L Jackson!)
At any rate we had started out early with just coffee so we asked someone on the sidewalk where to go for breakfast. Without hesitation he said, “down the block, the green building on the right, Lincoln’s Waffle Shop.”
So away we went. The building being green was spotted easily. There was a line outside which is always a good sign! It didn’t take long to get inside though and we were home free. We’d found our Washington D.C. breakfast spot! It was packed and the seating was family style. There was counter and then several various sized tables. Wherever there were 2 seats is where they sat us. The food was good, the service was fast and friendly (the place run by a large Chinese family all moving like so many cogs in a machine) and I finally got to try chicken and waffles!
Ever since I’d seen the item ~probably on Dives, Diners & Drive-ins) I wanted to try this dish but never had the opportunity. And here it was right at the top of the menu! No complaints I’ll have to say. It’s the perfect combination of salty/crunchy and the sweet from the waffle, only they gave me 6 chicken wings, not the 4 pictured here. I couldn’t eat them all which turned out ok, I ended up sharing with a lady from Orlando seated next to me!
The only bad thing about this spot for breakfast was that it wasn’t within walking distance of our hotel, but we did manage to make it back.
