Beijing to DC

Native Los Angeleno son is flying into DC from Beijing for the all-day Foreign Service exam next week (7-5). I -- a loyal LA Hound -- am flying in to meet him. We are staying in Foggy Bottom so he can walk to the test at groan 6:30 that morning. Is there anyplace open that early in the area so I can grab him breakfast? And how about a non-Asiam (but light) meal for the night before? Also right after the test, we have to beat it to BWI to fly on to visit the grandparent. I would like to be packing a good dinner for both physical and emotional support (We won't be landing in Providence until 11 pm). Need I add we will have no car. So actually three questions:

6 am breakfast in Foggy Bottom? Or something I can keep in hotel room (State Plaza) from night before?
light non Asian dinner the night before (sigh, Monday night)?
Something restorative I can get packed to go for the MARC/Airport leg?

You should probably know this son started studying Mandarin at 13 so he could order off the left side of the menu. And bakes nonstop in Beijing in a toaster-oven. Serious foodie.

Thanks so much.
