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.

Food

Do you serve breakfast?

We offer a full-service breakfast, weekdays: Monday-Friday from 7am-11am.

Can you accommodate specific food allergies (nuts, dairy, gluten, seafood, etc.)?

Yes, in most cases. Our servers and chefs are trained to address food allergies and can offer menu variations. However, if you have a life-threatening food allergy which can be triggered by cross-contact, our restaurant may not be right for you—we cook almost everything from scratch and therefore the avoidance of cross-contact is not something we can guarantee with 100% certainty. If you have an allergy of this severity, please call ahead to discuss with us, as we may determine it is safest you dine elsewhere. For non-cross contact allergies, we kindly request that you provide your server with any allergy or dietary concerns before you order, and your server will help you select an item that does not contain your allergen; we will not remove an allergen from dish as that can lead to errors, but we will absolutely help you select the best dish for you.

Do you have a kids menu?

One of the best things about our menu is that we try to offer a little something for every taste bud out there. We have many “kid-approved” items on our regular menus, and our service team is happy to help you choose the best item for the children in your party.

Do you offer vegan and vegetarian options?

Yes, we do feature meatless offerings for our vegetarian guests, and our servers can recommend vegan dishes as needed. We are also happy to make additional modifications whenever possible. Please be sure to mention any dietary concerns to your server.

What kind of food do you serve?

Founding Farmers is owned by more than 47,000 American family farmers of the North Dakota Farmers Union and is supplied daily by hundreds of family farms everywhere. We offer our versions of all-American and farmhouse classics with modern interpretations and preparations. Our focus is to provide our guests with the freshest, highest quality ingredients that have been grown and harvested, and then expertly prepared by our talented chefs from scratch every day. View our menus.

What time do you start serving lunch?

Lunch service begins at 11am Monday – Friday and runs through the late afternoon; the lunch and dinner menu are the same. On Saturdays, Sundays, and holiday Mondays our Farmers Market Buffet Brunch is served until 2pm. After 2pm on weekends, the lunch and dinner menu is served.
