The History of our Cafe

Established in 2003, Oohh's & Aahh's has become a culinary cornerstone in the nation's capital, Washington, DC. As a beloved city staple, our establishment transcends the conventional restaurant experience, offering not just exceptional soul food but a genuine taste of the city's spirit and diverse culinary landscape. We stand as a testament to the vibrant soul of the nation's capital, striving to preserve black culture and proudly serving as a culinary ambassador for Chocolate City.

Our dedication to soul food is rooted in culture, community, and flavor, providing a welcoming and inclusive space for both locals and visitors alike. In solidarity with those advocating for justice and equality, we actively fight against hatred and racism. Recognized with esteemed awards, including the "Cheap Eats Award" and the "Best Macaroni and Cheese" by Washingtonian Magazine, our national acclaim was further underscored with a feature on the Food Network's "Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives" hosted by Chef Guy Fieri.

Whether creating memories at family weekend brunch at our Georgia Ave location or savoring the delights of our best-selling dishes such as Whiting, Crispy Chicken Wings, Beef Meatloaf with Mac & Cheese, or the irresistible Fried Shrimp meals, Oohh's & Aahh's isn't your typical restaurant—it's an integral part of the DC experience. With two conveniently located establishments on Georgia Ave and the historic U St, we invite you to join us on a personal culinary journey through the authentic flavors that define the Taste of D.C
