According to an article in Capital Business, a Cafe Phillips deli will be opening at the ground floor of the Capitol View office building. The deli will join Pizza Autentica at the 425 E Street building, whose planned opening was announced in July. Cafe Phillips serves breakfast and lunch during the work week and the Capitol View location would be the chain's eighth location in DC. From the article:
Breakfast menu items include bagels, muffins, scones, breakfast sandwiches and oatmeal. For lunch, there are sandwiches, soups, salads, and chili. A full menu is available on their website. Cafe Phillips is scheduled to open in May.Locating in densely populated office corridors may mean more business, but it also means more competition. Most of [owner Phillip] Yun's delis are a stone's throw away from a Cosi or Subway. But he gladly plays David to the Goliaths, betting customers will like the quality of his product, he said. His piled-high subs have gained him a pretty loyal following.
