    Corner Bakery Cafe: Delicious sandwiches

    It's my recommendation for a bit hungry budget visitor who has no time to look for any better but still economic restaurant and who likes sandwiches :-).

    Corner Bakery Cafe is an American chain fast food style restaurant which offers first of all sandwiches which are advertised as having taste of Italian panini. This restaurant at Union Station has one table and offers chili & soups, salads, breads, panini, sandwiches, pasta, sweets and kid's menu. It's open 9 am to 9 pm Mon - Fri and 10 am - 9 pm Sat - Sun.

    Favorite Dish: We were not very hungry, so we ordered one Corner Menu for $6.49. We chose:
    - 1/2 tuna salad on olive bread (Kalamato olive bread with tuna salad, field greens and plum tomatoes)
    - 1/2 corned beef reuben panini (sandwich of corned beef, sauerkraut, Swiss cheese, and Thousand Island dressing grilled on white rye bread)
    - Caesar salad.
    It tasted very good, the Kalamato olive bread is my favourite.

    This is a great place to grab a quick breakfast or lunch just before you get on the train. The food is always fresh and wrapped ready to go. The prices are reasonable and the staff is nice. They have danishes, muffins, sandwiches, cold & hot drinks, chips and much more.

    Union Station The Station Grill: A quiet spot in a hectic town.

    Ummm, good food.

    The Station Grill was Excellent. I found this place warm and inviting. I hope I get to eat here again sometime.
    We had a cozy booth next to the bar, and it would be a perfect spot for a rainy day because you can eat just outside the restaurant, but if feels el fresco.
    The service and food were wonderful. I would go back here for breakfast again and again.

    Favorite Dish: Western Eggs $5.95
    Bacon $2.25
    Bacon Cheddar Omlett $6.90
    This was good food, great prices.

    the Station Grill: Enjoy the crab balls..

    Inside the

    This restaurant is where I used to work many moons ago. My X-boyfriend, and the X-husband of one of my best friends, built this. Rich, warm woods, a true copper ceiling, and it still looks like it did when I worked there 16 years ago. Bruce still owns the place...When you go, stop in and tell him I sent you..and ask him to tell you the story about the statues that surround the upper walls of Union Station. He has a very special one outside his restaurant.~

    Favorite Dish: I like all the food here as it really brings back memories. The crab cakes are very good.

    Approaching Union Station

    There are several places to choose from at Union Station. You can eat Mexican, sea food, a little French....or good old Pizza. We chose to have breakfast in the beautiful restaurant at the center of the main hall. Very good. I have also tried the Mexican restaurant as well as the smaller lunch counters, salad bars.....I guess I've spent a lot of time at Union Station. You could actually eat 3 meals a day there...and never hit the same spot twice for the whole week!

    Too Many to name...and remember: Union Station

    First of all...I selected the theme other becuase it was kind of everything.
    Union Station is a train station, and in there is a mall, and a huge food court. They had Italian, Fish, Chinese, Salad Bar, Clam Bar, Japanese....pretty much everything. And the food was great! You will probably have to drive there, but....this is by far, I thought, the best place to eat. You dont get served here, you walk up to whatever you want to eat, and they serve you, and you find a place to sit. Like eating at a mall. It also wasn't expensive at all. Just a wonderful experience.

    Favorite Dish: I had pizza, and it was great, and I tried some Chinese, and it was great! But there was over 100 places to eat drink and shop.

    We were lucky to find this southwestern restaurant in Union Station. This really is an unique location, you can watch the passengers walk by in the busy main hall of this beautiful station while you enjoy a quiet delicious dinner.

    Favorite Dish: Chile and Cheese Quesadilla

    Grilled Portabello and Garden Vegetable Fajita served on a cast iron skillet with rice, beans, sour cream, guacamole, pico de gallo and warm tortillas

    Favorite Dish: OK, it's just a strip mall/food court, but it has whatever you are looking for at any particular moment. From sushi to pizza, from Mexican to Greek, they have it all here. My favorite? Kelley's Cajun Grill and the worker who is always saying 'Yummy, yummy, good for tummy!'

    Was probably that Italian...

    Was probably that Italian resturaunt at the Uninion Station building - which I, unfortunately, have forgotten the name of. But an equal to that would be Il Radiccho in Georgetown, or Dupont Circle.
    For an alternative 'hip-spot', the Hard Rock Cafe.
    The personalised and warm service. Service is, afterall, everything.

    Favorite Dish: Most definitely the almond-glazed salmon and pasta in that Italian bistro. At the Hard Rock Cafe, anything goes, 'cause the music there really rocks!

    There are at least a dozen restaurants ranging from fast food joints to rather elegant places with cloth tablecloths, a rarity in the US. Union Station is a bit of a 'scene', anyway, that everyone should see, so it's a good bet to get something to eat. There's also a multi-screen cineplex in the building as well.
