Our Menu

Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

As a result of working with local vendors like 9th Street BakeryMichael’s English Muffins, and Bethesda Roasting Company, we make a light fare breakfast and lunch menu that combines both classic and modern tastes.

Similarly, we offer delicious to go dinner options and small plates with a broad wine list.

Above all at Som’s Cafe is our desire to serve you with our whole heart.


A healthy breakfast will kick-start your day by filling you up until break-time and helping you to concentrate.
