Good Coffee

Got stuck in Bethesda driving to Tennessee from Jersey down 95 and had to stop overnight due to white out conditions. In the am we stopped off at the coffee shop for a good coffee. It was a little dark for us but good. The pastries were really good and the donuts. Kids got hot chocolate and it was... read more

First of all, the servers (all three of them) moved about their business like three-month old zombies. Their voices were very monotone, their actions incredibly slow (I'm still unsure what one of them was doing besides shuffling back and forth behind the counter,) and their ability to properly fill an order was just atrocious. I ordered a single frozen coffee,... More

If you like local, this is the place to go. The drinks are top notch, with freshly made smoothies sometimes slowing the line. Coffee beans are excellent!

Like most I enjoy a good cup of coffee and favor independent shops. Feel they provide more bean types and brew a better cup than the corporates. Went to Quartermaine and was disappointed. Watery coffee with little flavor. They had a chalkboard on the sidewalk touting their doughnuts. Had a glazed that had less taste than a paper towel.

Below average coffee!! I was BUMMED that the Dunkin Donuts in Bethesda was closed so, against my gut instinct, I walked across the street to Quartermaine. I ordered an iced hazelnut coffee. It was weak and diluted, HUGE disappointment. And the service was mediocre. Go 1 block down the street to Barnes and Noble.....the have a Starbucks upstairs.

There should be a fee just to enter the place and breathe-in the wonderful coffee aromas that you'll find here. Each of its coffee drinks starts with its custom-roasted excellent coffee beans, so they all have a terrific head start. But it's the Cafe Mocha here that excels above similar drinks by other vendors. Unlike most other places, they use... More

Tried to find a place to get a good cup of coffee while in Bethesda for the art festival. And, I like to support small, funky, local businesses. So, we looked on TripAdvisor and found this place. Pretty disappointing. Kinda felt like a chain - maybe like, Peets or something like that. I didn't care for the coffee either. It... More

This locally owned fresh-roasted coffee serves the best flavor and best steamed froth. The owner arrives by bicycle. A physics expert roasts the beans. A future physician, daughter of the owner, serves the coffee. Ideally located at the edge of the bike trail. I've studies cappuccino from Tuscany to Bergen, and with the possible exception of Lauterbrunnen ,Switzerland , nothing... More
