Where We’re Eating Breakfast

$ On a Budget

DIY .  Bring a travel bowl of cereal and piece of fruit, or warm up some Bobs Red Mill cereal in your in-room microwave.  All rooms are equipped with a fridge, so bring your own snacks!  Your room also has a coffee maker, so go crazy and sleep in a little extra for a no-hassle breakfast

Subway.  Yep, they have breakfast.  We haven’t actually tried it yet, but its reasonably priced and about four blocks away.

$$ Spare Change in my Pocket

The Harbor Cafe and Coffee.  Reasonably priced coffee, yogurt parfaits, muffins and oatmeal cups.

$$$ Convenience over Cost

The Breakfast Buffet on the main level is excellent and convenient, but make a reservation and expect a price tag of $25 or more.

The Coffee Cart. Lobby location is very convenient and you can grab coffee, a muffin and fruit.  Beware check out times.  The lines are incredibly long.

$$$$ Splurge Worthy

In room dining is the ultimate indulgence, but the service is excellent.


Where We’re Eating Lunch

$ On a Budget

DIY Lunch.  Bring a jar of our fave PB Crave + a loaf of bread or couple slices in a zip top bag and you’ll have a money saving meal on your hands, leaving you more time to network and grab samples from the exhibitors. Stash a couple of yogurts or cut fruit cups from nearby CVS.  Each room has a mini fridge which is super convenient.

CVS on Fleet Street and American Way.  You’ll find great pre made “grab and go” meals like sandwiches+salads fora  very reasonable price.  Grab a pint of ice cream while you’re at it!

Elevation Burger.  Health conscious moms and dads–this is a grass fed beef quick service restaurant that is green enough to work super hard to reduce it’s footprint. And the burgers are juicy and savory.  Check out their soda machines of the future, unless you are water+lemon people like us

Nando’s Peri Peri.  Reasonably priced quick service sit down or take out place with the best roasted peruvian style chicken.  Try their sides or make a meal out of them. They are that good.

Potbelly Sandwich Shop. Try their Uptown or Farmhouse salads.  They are loaded with goodies, so you can even skip the dressings.  We also highly recommend their mammies, warmed of course!

$$$ Convenience over Cost

Public House, National Harbor. Right across from the Gaylord, you will find an Americana restaurant with fairly reasonable prices.  Check in on Yelp for freebies.

Rosa Mexicana.  Gorgeous views and long waits.  Call ahead for seating and try the table side guacamole.

McCormick & Schmick. Excellent seafood and service from this chain restaurant, you’ll know to expect fresh, perfectly cooked food and impeccable service. Grace’s Mandarin Swanky, upscale Asian-fusion food.  Expect long waits, small portions, but excellent food.
