Since 1987, La Tomate has been Dupont Circle’s neighborhood bistro featuring regional Italian cuisine complimented by friendly service and warm ambiance. Our bistro menu is characterized by fresh, simple, but flavorful ingredients – the essence of Italian cuisine. We serve local and and naturally raised products whenever possible, and favor no frills recipes that boast flavorful sophistication.
Our prosciutto bar offers a connoisseur selection of Italian and domestic salumi, olives, and cheeses.
La Tomate proudly inaugurated La Tomate Caffé adjacent to its current Bistro – the first of many changes the restaurant will implement in the coming years.
We are committed to providing quality service and excellent food in a warm and friendly atmosphere. We invite you to join us for a casual lunch, happy hour, dinner, weekend brunch or for group events.
Conveniently located close to the Dupont Circle Metro, Q Street exit (Red Line, Dupont Circle North Metro).
The Caffè offers a Belle Epoque atmosphere with Italian inspired menu items and is the perfect spot for a quick, casual breakfast, lunch, or healthy take out.
Open from morning to afternoon, the Caffè serves up brioche and homemade sweets, espresso, coffee drinks and fresh-pressed juices, traditional breakfast, artisanal-cut domestic and Italian charcuterie, panini and tramezzini, assortments of cheeses, mozzarella varieties, salads and light-fare.
