Across the Street Cafe in Silver Spring

  • 2

has anyone tried this place across from AFI in Silver Spring? I am interested in trying it but have heard nothing.

  1. There's some discussion on this local blog:

    As I reported there, I was quite unimpressed, and I have seen no reason to go back. They are trying to be everything to everyone and therefore doing none of it really well. If you have to go I'd stick to simpler things like sandwiches. Other people commenting on the blog thought it was wonderful to an extent I found mysterious.

    I'd love to hear some more reports here.

    1. I've been there for lunch, and while the service was quite attentive (maybe they were really trying to make a good impression), my reuben and soup was nothing to write home about. Everyone at my table agreed the food was mediocre. We did all think the fries were pretty good though. I work right next to the place, and it's always empty at lunch.
