This Reader Reward is now closed. Congratulations to Ariana, who will use the certificate to have brunch with friends.

On the fourth day of Christmas my true love gave to me, a Bittersweet certificate to satisfy my need for cupcakes and delicious coffee...

As part of our Twelve Days of Christmas giveaway, we're happy to bring to you a $50 gift certificate to Bittersweet. Bittersweet Café is one of Washingtonian’s Top 50 Gourmet To-Go Restaurants. Whether you grab a quick breakfast before work, load up at the hot bar during your lunch break or linger over brunch on the weekend, you will find a festive atmosphere, quality ingredients and exceptional service.

New to Bittersweet Café is an authentic Mexican menu after 5:00 PM Tuesday through Saturday. With fresh and healthy ingredients, the menu satisfies any comfort food craving. Inspired by the owner’s frequent trips to Mexico City, he wanted to share with Old Town a cuisine he felt was misrepresented by other restaurants in the area. Good for you and very reasonably priced? Now you have no excuse to not go to Bittersweet for dinner too!
