Refreshments

(No websites found at time of publishing) – National Mall, Washington, DC

How I heard of this place: We walked by. We were hungry. We stopped in for a snack, which turned out to be lunch.

Type of cuisine: Quick, easy, fried meals, and salads for the healthy.

Ambiance: An outdoor refreshment stand, this one larger than most, square-shaped with a green, pointed rooftop. Windows on three sides lead patrons to the order counter and, around the corner, to the pick-up area. Patio furniture outside is available for stay-in diners, some under umbrellas, others with exposure to the beauty of vitamin-D coming through the sunrays.

What I ordered: Chris and I thought we would share two things: the Polish Sausage with Peppers and Onions ($4.95) and the #5 Spicy Chicken Sandwich Combo ($10.15) served with a 12-ounce pack of fries and a 20-ounce Pepsi brand soft drink (Sierra Mist). Cody, thinking he had ordered the Polish Sausage, ended up with Nathan’s All Beef Hot Dog ($4.19), which he topped with ketshup and mustard; a cup of hot coffee ($1.85), a soda ($2.40), and an Ice Cream Sandwich ($1.60). After touring the Lincoln Memorial, we all needed ice cream, and purchase three more Ice Cream Sandwiches from the same vendor.

What I loved: The outdoor seating, most of all! The chicken sandwich was spicy and the ice cream sandwich brought back memories of childhood.

Why I loved it: Food and friends enjoyed in the autumn sun.

Cost: Average to high ($4.19 – $7.95 per miniature hot dog/sausage/sandwich/salad)
