Light fare with the selections of coffee and tea means anything from Pistachio Lemon Salad to Carmelized Onion, Pine Nut and Gruyere Quiche.

Chef Andre Shiou creates luscious desserts too. Try the Chocolate Lava Cake or the Crème Brûlée.

Washington Fine Properties (WFP) is pleased to list a light-filled, tastefully renovated and flawlessly designed townhouse in the heart of Georgetown's East Village. This four-bedroom home features high-end finishes throughout and has two stunning outdoor spaces.

The generous entry hall under a Federal fantail with the stairs nestled behind the main entry, beckons you into the double living room. With its high ceilings, large scale, two exposures of light, original molding and flooring, and matching wood-burning fireplaces, the room is a show-stopper. Consistent with the house's flexibility,  it's a grand entertaining space, and an easy, comfortable living area. The dining room is large and square, perfect for formal dining, or an ideal, cheerful informal family eating room.

With its access to the kitchen, French doors to the garden, and marble counters with built-in appliances (warming drawer, mini fridge, wine cooler) it can be a terrific family room with the formal dining room in the back part of the living room.  Kitchen is outfitted with the latest and finest stainless appliances, including Subzero and Wolf.

Views of the garden can be seen through the south and east exposures. The marble counters have enough space for a home office or computer station. The powder room, along with the other wall paper on the main level was designed by Kelly Wearstler, of New York City.

The master bedroom, on the south side of the house, with its big windows and low horizon line flood the suite with sunlight and provide views of the finest Georgetown gardens.

The en-suite bath is spotless white with every reasonable convince including a full-sized recessed flat screen TV. Facing banks of double closets with inserts provide plenty of space for both him and her. The bedroom on the front of the house, three windows wide, has custom built-ins and a wood-burning fireplace. It makes the very best upstairs family room. The next floor has two large, light bedrooms, and a fine full bath and a laundry space with stacked washer and dryer.

Between the floors is a very large south-facing, private deck, reminiscent of the Queen Mary's Promenade. The garden is no less than a perfect outside space, it is beautiful, totally finished, easily accessed and totally secure from unwanted flora and fauna. The built-in grill is of the highest quality and is next to a wood burning oven. Blue slate covers everything but the side planters.
