As a farmer-owned restaurant, almost all of our delicious food and drink – from our freshly baked bread and house-churned ice cream to our craft cocktails with our award-winning proprietary spirits – is made from scratch, using high-quality ingredients from American family farms. Our First Bake is also a great option for those seeking real, scratch-made food to go, including grab & go breakfast with espresso drinks and our specialty Founding Farmers house-roasted coffee.

At Founding Farmers Reston Station, we are inspired in part by our third president, founding father and farmer, Thomas Jefferson and his home at Monticello. Throughout our restaurant, guests will see references to Jefferson’s life and Monticello’s setting perched high on a hill overlooking the beautiful Shenandoah Valley, the majestic trees surrounding Monticello, the lush, organic, and carefully tended vegetable and flower gardens, and his extensive library. In our design, there are parts to Jefferson’s life and his participation in our nation’s history that we are not ignoring and that cannot be ignored. President Jefferson owned over 600 enslaved men, women, and children at his Monticello estate and his other properties. In our restaurant, we have commissioned original artwork to help us tell a more complete history and our place in it, ensuring we see through the eyes of all citizens. We invite guests to explore our art and learn more about our collection of talented artists.

Founding Farmers Reston Station is sustainably built and operated. We received our LEED Gold Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council, operate a 3 Star Certified Green Restaurant, and received the Near-Zero Waste Award.

On Metro’s Silver Line, Founding Farmers Reston Station is a full-service restaurant and bar open seven days a week serving breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, and brunch on the weekends. We also have weekday happy hour to the delight of our Reston neighbors, commuters, and businesses.
