Pretty good!

Service was friendly and prompt, my iced tea was pretty good, and the atmosphere is really inviting with couches and comfy chairs all over the place. It's a pretty large property, too, which is hard to come by in this area!

The latte came in a “St. Elmo’s” classic and worn-in coffee mug. No latte art, but lots of fluffy froth. First sip proved a good brew; it was not too overwhelming or bitter, a good mix of coffee and milk. The space was calm, yet alive with happy people, young and older. I felt content sitting in the shop –... More

St Elmo's came into Del Ray (years if not a decade or two ago) as the first coffee shop alongside the wave of Starbucks and other chains coming in elsewhere. St Elmo's still stands and there isn't a Starbucks in sight. Coffee has much improved over the years and their selection of treats is great. It's a nice place to... More

One of my favorite coffee shops in Alexandria. Stopped in for a quick lunch and had the most delicious quinoa salad. The white Mocca is excellent too. A comfortable, relaxing atmosphere is perfect for a mid day break.

St. Elmo's is located along the Mt. Vernon corridor in Alexandria. It is popular with the locals and attracts a good crowd. The place is down home in décor with a mix of furniture styles and a tired feel. The key is the coffee is good and the service is friendly. It will not kick Starbuck out of the market... More

If you want to know what's going on in Del Ray, this is the place where residents gather. From the reading corner to the bulletin board to the casual groups that form over coffee, this place embodies the Del Ray community.

I feel that it is important for the employees to greet you w a hello and after you are done w the transaction say a thank you. I also expect the larger muffins to come in fresh not frozen and at the very least to not keep them for day old or two days old. You never usually are getting... More

This is an excellent local coffee shop. I’ve been a couple of times and the drinks have always been good. I was most recently there for breakfast and they had delicious gluten free muffins. It’s difficult to find gluten free baked goods, so I was happily surprised. I will continue to stop here when I’m in the area.

Want a great local coffee shop, this is it. Good everything. I had iced coffee, ham & cheese croissant, and oatmeal raisin cookie. All good. Prepare to relax.

This place is the real-deal coffee house. Lines out the door all weekend long. Plastered with flyers announcing readings, political events, music, etc. Coffee is authentic. Pastries are awesome. Sit down with a cup of coffee next to a stranger, and make a friend. We've been coming here for years before Del Ray became "cool," and thank god St. Elmo's... More
