The staff at Taylor Gourmet in Washington, D.C., was in for a recent treat when President Barack Obama popped in for a little visit.

"He bought members of Congress hoagies to-go," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "He paid in cash, $80."

Of the purchase, which cost about $20 less than what Obama left, the source says the employees at the sandwich shop, "Yelled in amazement, 'You carry money?'"

They added, "He was in a very good mood. Everyone [at the eatery] agreed he makes you feel like he's your friend and your president!"
