Cafe Saint – Ex

Good morning!

I bet everyone is ready for the weekend, I know I am. I’m looking forward to running errands and doing things around the house tomorrow and then on Sunday I have an 11 mile run ahead of me, then I’ll be seeing a museum exhibit at the National Gallery of Art with my mom, and then meeting up with a sorority sister for a drink.


Well another month, another restaurant on 14th Street to try. 🙂 Last night Tammy, Miki and I went to Cafe Saint-Ex (or more commonly called Saint – Ex) for dinner. It was good, definitely a lot chiller than some of the recent places we’ve gone to. We sat in the bar area on a high top. The restaurant has a nice seating area outside, but it was a little too hot for that last night, and apparently they have a downstairs portion of the restaurant but someone had advised Tammy not to ever go down there, lol.

To start we decided to try their fried pickles. They were good, but not the best I ever had. I think a lot of it has to do with the kind of pickle the restaurant is frying…

For our entrees I ordered the spaghetti puttanesca with mussels and shrimp. (It was really good. The portion was perfect — not too small and not too big). I also thought the pasta choice was interesting – in a good way!

Tammy was craving a burger, which she said was delicious.

And Miki tried the pastrami sandwich. Mike said the sandwich was okay, just not what she was expecting pastrami to taste like. Hmmmm. However she did think the pickles and sweet potato fries were awesome.

All in all another successful restaurant choice on 14th Street. I’d come back here for a drink and an appetizer, and I’m intrigued by their brunch since I read a lot of good reviews about it.


Let’s go back in time – here are our other 14th Street dining adventures at Cork, Ghibellina,  Eatonville, Lupo Verde, and B Too.
