lunch near catholic university (light and healthy), breakfast in silver springs (throw caution to the wind)
My dad is coming up tomorrow and i have a 1:45 soccer match near Catholic University (@ the trinity field..) so i was hoping a hound could recommend a spot for us to get a healthy lunch (otherwise i'd go to florida ave grill) before the game. on Sunday we're going to Silver Springs to wax nostalgic about when i was a little girl and lived there for a short time. My dad used to fly up for weekends and visit me and my sister and i swear i remember us going to somewhere on georgia venue where they had egg cream sodas??? i'm not one hundred percent certain, as i was in 2nd/3rd grade at the time but if anyone could direct me to a place like this or similar i'd appreciate it. Also, if you know of a place with really good breakfast in Silver Springs that would be wonderful. I'm a sucker for quirky breakfast places, diners, cottages... etc... oh, but no price fixed buffets.
As a CUA student I can tell you there really isn't anything healthy around. Colonel Brooks is pretty much a greasy spoon decent for beer and hamburgers. There is a quiznos and a little deli that will make you a sandwich on Michigan, and there is a very scary Dominos Pizza on John McCormick.
Are you driving? If so you might be able to go somewhere a little further from Catholic those are walking distance to Catholic.
