About Our Neighborhood
Mount Pleasant is best known for its vida, beckoning with Salvadoran pupusas, mariachi bands, genuine bodegas, and restaurants bringing the sabor of Central America to the nation’s capital.
As you explore, you will discover a wide selection of goods from around the world. If you are hungry you can enjoy a slice of New York-style pizza at Radius, order Thai food at Beau Thai, try Dos Gringos Café’s vegetarian special of the day. If you are looking for something sweet enjoy a home-made brownie at Flying Fish Coffee and Tea or local, organically grown fruit at Each Peach Market. For a unique gift, browse Logan’s Antiques for unusual collectibles or visit El West for clothing, boots and accessories. And for all your beauty needs schedule an appointment at Ramona's spa.
Mount Pleasant Street is most lively on Saturdays, when shoppers clog the weekly farmers’ market (April through December) or load up on everything from masa harina to tofu at bustling bodegas that line the commercial strip.
