Welcome to the GreenBee Cafe! Buzz by and say hello!

HI THERE

WELCOME TO THE GREENBEE CAFE!

The GreenBee Café (previously Bread and Brew) would like to welcome you to our new location and reaffirm our commitment to providing your table with the very best foods of our region.

The Green Bee Café is located in the Golden Triangle of DC, just a few blocks from both Dupont and Washington Circles. The philosophy of the GreenBee Café is guided by the principles of times past when things were made with fresh, natural ingredients and the seasons dictated the recipes.

As with Bread and Brew, we are still a local, small, woman-owned business. We take great pride is using locally sourced ingredients as much as possible. This gives us the foundation to create truly delicious and healthy, hand-crafted sandwiches, pastas and salads. We strive to use meats that are sourced locally, humanely raised and then roasted in house. Our glass-bottled organic milk, butter, eggs and more are delivered fresh from local family run farms.

The GreenBee Café loves our DC home (& our planet too). We have pioneered earth friendly practices such as biodegradable to-go containers and catering packaging. Our catering is truly “Good to Go!”

We run on 100% wind credits. Used cooking oil is made into biodiesel and kitchen waste is turned into black gold compost. We have proven that you can be ‘green on a shoestring.’

With all this, we’re still aware that many of us are on a budget and we strive to keep our food affordable as well as delicious, healthy and environmentally friendly.

Now just sit back, relax, savor and enjoy.

The credit and accolades are yours for “breaking the chain” and choosing local!
