Afterwords Stands the Test of Time



    Afterwords Stands the Test of Time
    DC staple remains popular with the help of creative entrees and delectable desserts.

    Although there is little elbow room, Afterwords offers an intimate setting that you wouldn’t expect from a café in the back of a Dupont Circle bookstore.

    It’s the kind of place that is appropriate for a first date, after a long night out with friends, or to celebrate just about any other occasion.

    Attached to the popular Washington staple, Kramerbooks, it’s a full service restaurant where the options are seemingly endless. The menu features a variety of creative dishes. You can find everything from Tunisian baby lamb chops to Caribbean jerk chicken salad.

    While some entrees can be on the expensive side, Afterwords boasts a relaxing atmosphere. You can enjoy live entertainment from local artists Wednesdays through Saturdays in the evenings. Be sure to visit the equally low-key bar where specialty cocktails, wines by the bottle, and draft beers are available daily.

    Afterwords also has an extensive list of delectable desserts. Finish the evening on a high note with their mixed fruit crumble or apple pie and cinnamon ice cream.

    The café serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner seven days a week. On the weekends they stay open all night.
