Temporary Closure

Based on the guidance from CDC, WHO and local government and health agencies about how we can slow the spread of the coronavirus that causes COVID-19,
Café Riggs has temporarily suspended service. The brasserie will re-open as soon as it’s safe for our guests, and our team. Keep an eye out on this page and at @caferiggs for further updates.

A Reimagined All-Day Café & Brasserie

Inspired by the grand cafés of Europe, Café Riggs offers traditional grace through a reimagined lens to bring a modern restaurant to The District. Nestled on the ground floor of Riggs Washington DC, the restaurant serves an all-day menu from the bar, café and dining room – all enveloped by the storied building’s original architectural features. Between the Corinthian columns and expansive ceilings, the grand space is an ideal setting for a celebratory fête, a casual drink, or a simple coffee and pastry.
