Saints Paradise Cafeteria

The food at Saints Paradise is the closest you can get to home without being there. My family often goes there to get dinner. The value for the money is great. We always have enough for a snack later. The food has great quality and does not taste manufactured. You can choose to eat restaurant-style, but we take it home because it tastes like home-cooked!

My husband and I own a Small Convention Cleaning Business. we are in Dc a couple of times a year or more for 7 to 20 days at a time and always eat at the Church, no better meal in the DC area. We eat lunch around noon and are not hungry for the rest of the day. the People are so friendly. i love eatting here not only for the great home cooking but I see how the treat the seniors that come in to get a togo meal, they get a senior price and enough food for at least a couple meals. the ladies and gentelman who work here are truly Gods children. God Bless them all...

I've been eating at Saints Paradise for many years. The food is always good, well seasoned with large portions. Most dinners are under $10 but don't forget dessert & their Sweet Tea.

OMG, the food in this Blessed establishment was so good and felt like eating a home cooked meal and I came all the way from Kuwait to find this place on my visit to the Washingon... Boy was it worth it and told everyone about it and to look for others in their cities.. I would go back again and again when i get the chance..

This is my Aunt Leitha's kitchen transformed into a cafeteria. Great classic soul food at a great price.

About once a year we get a chance to come here to introduce our visitors to the best kept secret in Washington, DC. The food is excellent, the people (customers and staff alike) are the friendliest you will meet in DC. You want to wait a couple of hours before brushing your teeth just to keep the memory of the food with you.

I was a young Marine from Colorado Springs and wound up being stationed in the D.C. area. I worked with some civilians who loved to eat and who were DCMA natives. They brought me to this place that they called paradise. The restaurant lived up to its name and I was thoroughly impressed by the service and the quality of the food. The price tag was small for the portions, which was a huge plus for someone getting PFC (private First Class) money. The food is heavy, so pace yourself or just save some for later because you might fall asleep.
