What you'll do

You’ve seen the major sites in Washington DC — the Capitol Building, the Smithsonian Museums and the thought-provoking memorials — but did you ever wonder about the people who built this great city? Join us on a foodie tour of H Street, the neighborhood that housed the builders and artisans who built the city and made it come to life.

After introducing ourselves at the meeting point, we kick off the tour with a delicious snack from a local grocery store. Then we head to a cafe with freshly roasted, in-house coffee, where we may even meet the unofficial “Mayor of H St”!

We continue to make a loop around the H Street Corridor, visiting restaurants, markets, churches, and historic sites. Our foodie stops vary depending on what is available that day but we can promise a culinary rollercoaster ride through many of DC’s most authentic and delicious neighborhood spots.

Along the way, you’ll hear some amazing stories about the people who used to live and work in this district, learn how food has played a big part in bringing the community together and taste for yourself why DC’s food scene is enjoying a much-deserved resurgence.

After we have filled you up with some of the best food in the city, don’t forget to ask your local guide for more hints and tips on how to get the most from your stay in Washington DC.

Great food and stories. I enjoyed the variety of food and the size, thought it would be more like samples but portions were much larger!

My mom and I adored the tour so much. Juliana was a truly wonderful guide—personable, knowledgeable, and kind. We could never have anticipated someone so awesome! The stops were diverse and tasty, and we loved the mural stop at the end. Definitely recommend!

Cortland was great! Learned so much about the establishments and history strolling down H St. The food and coffee selections were great as well.

This experience was great because we were able to see and eat at places that I might’ve never tried before. Especially with covid I felt safe doing this tour and had fun still. Would recommend.

I took this tour with Cortland, a DC native, and he was fantastic!! All the delicious food stops along the way so memorable and it was very eye opening to hear about DC from a local. Highly recommend this trip for anyone visiting! (If I could give 6/5 stars, I totally would.)

Our DC food tour of H Street with Cortland was so much fun and so interesting! Cortland is a 3rd generation DC resident and is a weather of knowledge and DC, the neighborhoods we walked through and the people that run the businesses that keep H street thriving! This wasn't a fast paced, rush rush tour. We were able to walk (not run) through the neighborhoods, sit and drink our coffee and eat or food at several of the stops. We tasted local favorites from establishments that have served the community for years. And, we didn't get a one bite taste either! We each had full portions at each stop! It's no wonder that they are still thriving!!
