    This place is more than your typical neighborhood gem. Cannot say enough good things about it! The outdoor seating is cute and comfortable, and especially perfect in the fall months.

    Fabulous spot for brunch with outdoor dining. We tried the Swedish pancakes and Finnish pullah French toast - both were delicious! Highly recommended-we’ll definitely be returning to try some of those Nordic cocktails.

    Made a reservation for 4, but when we arrived on a cold and windy day we were told there were no tables for 4 people inside, but that we were free to sit outside. Ended up sitting inside at the window counter which was tight for four people and hard to have a group conversation. The service was good and the food was excellent, but definitely a fair-weather cafe (not a restaurant as we had thought.)

    Friend in town and we wanted to check out our old neighborhood. Attracted by menu that’s such a nice change from everything else in DC and reviews by a friend who described it like a HS crush: “the brunch is dreamy. Order and split extra plates.” I’ll be back, and bet it becomes a regular spot when my friend visits, too!

    Awesome food and service in a pleasant patio setting. We enjoyed a beer and Long Drink along with the mushroom and tuna appetizers - the drinks were great and the apps were better - so tasty. For dinner we had the salmon risotto and the fettuccine and asparagus. Amazing - wonderful presentation, well portioned and great flavor. Salmon was delicious and the fettuccini sauce was just right - flavorful without overpowering. A great place to enjoy with a menu for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

    A group of us were in town for a conference and stumbled upon Mikko. We giggle a bit at the Nordic fair including many other ethnic ties but oh my goodness was the food delicious! Excellent in taste, quantity, quality and presentation.

    We enjoyed our meal. There are so few Nordic restaurants and this is a great addition to the food scene. Love the small shop of goodies, too.
