Celebrity sighting alert: The Washington Post reports that U2's Bono and his wife were seen Saturday dining at Kafe Leopold in Georgetown.

The restaurant, located at 3315 M St., is part of Cady's Alley. Here's what Fodor's has to say about the eatery:

"Forget all the clichés about heavy Austrian fare served by waiters in lederhosen. Leopold is about as Euro trendy as it gets, with an all-day coffee and drinks bar, an architecturally hip dining space, and a chic little patio complete with a minifountain. Food is pared-down Mitteleuropean: mushroom tart, crisp schnitzel paired with peppery greens, an endive salad with mustard dressing. In the middle of design-obsessed Cady's Alley, the café draws an artsy city crowd that's content to sit and watch the scene evolve, just as it's done in Europe. Brunch is a particularly popular setting for such people-watching manna, and the neat-as-a-pin breakfast is available daily until 4 pm."

The singer was in town for business with his anti-poverty ONE Campaign. He reportedly also made a stop to surprise volunteers at the group’s annual ONE Power Summit.
