Teaism is a teahouse at heart but its breakfast, lunch and dinner menus are an excellent deal for the price. It's also one of the few affordable restaurants with any atmosphere at all—we fell in love with the quietly sophisticated, Japanese-style interior. There are two locations—one in Penn Quarter and one in Dupont Circle. Teaism is one of the best places to eat in Washington DC on a budget. Try any of the great value bento boxes—for under $10 you get a full, healthy meal (our favorite is seared rare tuna bento box, which comes with wasabi sauce, broccoli, sweet potatoes and rice).
