Joe Biden and Barack Obama's adorable bromance stunned excited customers and patrons while on a lunch outing together
Former President Barack Obama and his Veep Joe Biden made for quite the table conversation when they decided to unexpectedly stop by a Washington DC bakery to grab a quick bite. The former president and vice president were seen on camera as they made their way to the counter at Georgetown's Dog Tag bakery.
The bakery is a non-profit that trains veterans and military spouses on how to run a food business.
Obama and Biden proceeded to place their lunch orders as if it was no big deal. The bakery posted a picture of the duo on Twitter after the presidential visit and also thanked Obama and Biden for "for supporting our mission of empowering veterans with service-connected disabilities, military spouses, and military caregivers!".

"Whatever the hell they're called?" Obama repeats as he goes over to the display case to measure his food options. Biden proceeds to lift his plate into the air and closely examines the sandwich and says that they are ham and cheese. At that moment, Obama says, "Yeah, that looks pretty good, I think I've gotta have one of these, too".
"Give the boss one of those, too," Biden then asks as Obama adds a fennel salad to his order. It looks like it is Biden's treat as he is seen holding on to some cash. As the pair left the restaurant, they were welcomed by a cheering crowd who applauded them. The applause was captured in a video clip shared by Ashley Hart on Instagram.
