A combination of lounge and coffee bar in an eclectic atmosphere. Food is great and you have to try Velvet Bean martini. It is exquisite! Highly recommend this place if you are visiting DC.

The cappucino that I ordered was absolutely perfect. The food was not amazing, and overpriced. I would return for the cozt atmosphere and a great coffee or drink, but not for the eats!

One of the best coffee shops in DC.
The service - Warm and efficient. No attitude even when spent 3 hours there reading, and ordered only one coffee!)
Food - great options if you want to have a light bite - create your own salad is my fave. Tasty Mediterranean plates.
Coffee - Big, since it's the states after all, but good!
Free wifi. Great place to meet people and get the vibe of the city. Not awkward at all to sit alone and rid. Highly recommended.

This is a great place to unwind alone or with friends. Both coffee house and bar, you can spend all day here with a book or your laptop. Staff is friendly and service laid back- go, it does get crowded, but people are willing to share their tables, sofas if you ask.

This is my favorite, absolute favorite cafe in DC to bring my computer to and work for the day. Here's why:

- Great food and an extensive menu (lots of vegetarian options.)
- Fabulous fair trade coffee made to perfection (French press, foam art, the whole nine...)
- Lots of tables (but they go fast! I try to get there late morning to beat the lunch crowd. Also, if they are all taken, look for someone paying their check.)
- Note: outlet power lines the walls, so that is the best place to grab a seat with your machine
- Full bar - and happy hour starts at three to revitalize your creative spirit!
- No wifi on weekends to promote conversation and simple weekend pleasures - such as reading
- Great music and overall vibe
- Live jazz music in the evening, once a week
- Local artists displaying shows throughout the house, rotating once a month


One of the best local spots in DC to work on professional endeavors, personal projects and friendships!
