FAREWELL CAPITAL CITY

Photobucket
It was with a heavy heart and a hungry belly that I stumbled into the Capital City Diner this morning. Owner Matt Ashburn, after fighting a long and valiant battle, had announced that D.C.’s only true diner was closing its doors today, and I needed to grab the cup by the handle and have one last cup of joe, one last greasy, delicious breakfast before the grill went cold and the lights went dim along Bladensburg Road and the Trinidad neighborhood was left with a hollow void in its culinary soul. I hope you enjoy this brief photo essay and tribute to Washington, D.C.’s Capital City Diner.

  2. Hi, that’s me and my son in the lower panel (his quote: “it looks like a train but it’s a pancake restaurant!”). We’ll miss this place dearly. I’m all for the hipster revival of H. St., but brunch ain’t breakfast.
