Volunteer Park Café sits on one of those wonderfully leafy, lovely corners in north Capitol Hill, near its namesake Volunteer Park. It’s a neighborhood spot that just happens to have very fresh, delicious food, as evidenced by our two lunch choices on a recent visit.
This summer bean salad of crispy pancetta, tomato, roasted summer squash, parmesan, mixed greens and the most enormous corona beans I’ve ever seen.
I can already picture myself ensconced at the big communal table with a latte, a slice of quiche and a section of paper, settled in for breakfast. The tall wine rack, though I couldn’t make use of it for this particular lunch, also reminded me that I need to keep Volunteer Park Café in mind for dinner as well. I hear it’s the case and imagine it to be true — VPC is a good bet no matter the time of day.
