A destination for brunch and all-day breakfast on U Street is now closed.

D.C. Council Chairman Phil Mendelson plans to hit up U Street this weekend.
The politician is scheduled to visit U Street Cafe (1301 U Street NW) this Saturday at 10 a.m. as part of his monthly “Meet Up With Mendo” appearances.
According to Mendelson’s office, the event is an opportunity for Ward 1 residents to weigh concerns about government services, share ideas on how to improve their neighborhood or have a cup of coffee with the chairman.
