Its obvious to me that Capitol Roasters is a tax write off for someone. There is no interest in building a repeat clientelle. Employees stand behind the bar engaged in inane converation while customers wait to catch their attention.

I frequent the Capitol Roasters in the Capitol Market location since 2007. The coffee drinks are consistently good but the service needs improvement. Instead of a friendly, hello, may I help you, some of the workers act like they are being imposed upon. Last summer, a male employee was apparently having a bad day.
