The Wydown Coffee Bar: what do users think?


Khoi Nguyen: Great coffee spot located on a busy street. I recently stopped by on an early Sunday and the line was almost out the door. My friends and I ordered a regular coffee, espresso shot and a matcha latte. Prices are reasonable for DC and service was really quick. I’ll definitely be back for their breakfast pastries

Josephine Valois: I’ve had good experiences the first few times I’ve stopped by for breakfast, but this time was just the worst. $12 for avocado toast and it’s covered in so much oil I used 4 napkins to wipe it off. It’s completely soggy with oil. I unfortunately didn’t notice until I walked home to eat. The coffee is good, but get the breakfast sandwich instead.

Michael Meotti: Good coffee, great scones (I had the cherry almond, good amount of fruit and a bit of sugar icing on top...all to the good!) and nice location with comfortable indoor seating, some tables outside and a roll open garage style door/window in the front for nice weather.

Muniba Khan: Really great coffee, I'll definitely be back to try the smoked salmon and pastries! Service was great and quick and the place itself is really cute. I came late morning on a Monday and it wasn't too busy. I only wish that they had wifi because it would be a great place to study or work otherwise. Update: I tried the pastries and they were very good! The scones are absolutely amazing, I think I got a cranberry almond scone and I loved it. I also got the jalapeno biscuits- they were really good but I felt that the jalapeno flavor was subtle.

Oliver Wiehe: The flavor of the coffee is exquisite. The coffee is so good it needs no sugar or cream. Be sure to order a orange cranberry muffin. The sugar layer has a wonderful crunch to the warm fruit flavors inside. Atmosphere is casual urban. Wydown coffee bar is a must visit when close to U street in DC.

chparatrooper88: Wydown Coffee Bar. One word…wow.Coffee is second to none. Gluten free options. Price is the best yet.

Emir Sfaxi: I love Wydown since I don’t live far from it. However I was really disappointed that they removed the blueberry lavender scone and their pimento cheese biscuit. These two items were part of their best sellers! They also removed the croissants from the menu and never brought them back.

Jhori Lobban: Elizabeth is the best barista there! She is immensely respectful and kind and has a very nice personality. She made sure my order was correct and the latte was perfect ! Hope you guys are treating her as the asset to your establishment that she surely is.

Ravi S.: They use the lightest roast from their coffee supplier for their espresso. This results in a highly acidic, sour shot. Furthermore, milk drinks taste a bit curdled because of the extremely high acidity. If you like the espresso here, you have no sense of what good coffee is. Perplexingly, the line here is always long, indicating the sad state of coffee quality in the District.

BJONESADVENTURE: Perfect coffee. If you are fortunate enough to live close to Wydown then I'm sure it's already your go to spot. If you are passing through DC make this a stop on your list.

Emissary: what do users think?


Martha Wilson: Hip vibe at this neighborhood coffee. Cool interior but lots of space outside. Delicious food and coffee, too. Thumbs up!

Rebecca Peters: I’ve been here several times and had pretty mixed experiences. The staff is super kind and lovely. If you’re there to work, there’s very limited seating with plug access for charging devices. In ~5 visits, I’ve never been able to get on the wifi (even with restarting devices/the wifi itself etc.) The coffee is really good, but other aspects could use some improvement; I ordered a salad (~$15!) expecting it to be pretty substantial at that price. Was disappointed when it came with only a few pieces of grapefruit, half an avocado, and stemmy greens. Overall: go for good coffee, pre-charge your devices, consider not ordering salad.

Thomas G: Amazing avocado egg burrito, and tasty coffee. Lots of gluten free options, and milk alternatives. Will definitely be back next time I'm in town.

Rosa: I love the vibe, the location, the avocado toast, the coffee and pastries of Emissary, but there are a few recurring issues that I hope they address: Some of the staff are very ignorant. You need to ask for one thing several times for them to address. The tables are not always being cleaned after someone leaves. People constantly come and go and sometimes you just get to sit at the dirty table and even when you ask for a napkin to clean the table, the person doesn’t come back. The WiFi also sucks. If you need to do stuff online, you can’t rely on their WiFi.

Tatiana Padilla: Plenty of outdoor and indoor seating; a variety of small plates; and delicious coffee! The space was cute and the staff was friendly. The espresso was a bit fruity and bright— not what I expected. Wish there were more breakfast pastries/breads available throughout the day as the food menu was a bit on the expensive side.

HK: My go-to comfort cafe in the neighborhood. Coffee and pastries are great. They have ample seating space indoors and outdoors, which makes it a great rendezvous point. They offer healthy food options although the portions aren’t big.

Lisa Giorgi: Cozy casual place, plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. Tried the egg sandwich which was tasty. Good for breakfast and work.

Jelena Djokic: Cool, indie coffee place. It serves delicious coffee and pastries. Prices are average. We got a tasty carrot cake cupcake there. The only thing that bugged me was that we took the food outside and there was simply no argonomic way to eat it without getting super messy, so I would recommend that they get utensils for the take-out.

Calvin Lietz: If you can find a table on the weekends, it's hard to imagine a better brunch spot. Great food with creative vegetarian options, excellent coffee (counter culture) and cute English basement spot. A familiar favorite that is always a good option

Bhinesha Seetaram: The best matcha latte. I took mine with almond milk.

Bourbon Coffee: what do users think?


Coleman Hutchins: I want to like Bourbon Coffee but their cups constantly leak all over the place (after every sip you end up with drips of coffee on your hands). When they first opened in Tenleytown I used to frequent, but the lids never seemed sized right for the cups. I pointed this out, but they never changed them. The cups were flimsy and of lower quality than other coffee chains (lids pop off if you put a little too much pressure when you grab it). I thought it was local to the Tenleytown shop. Today I had the same issue downtown on L ST. I'm rooting for this coffee shop as I love Rwandan coffee so hopefully someone sees this and switches up their cup/lid order. Probably some finance dude looking to cut costs. You can't be cheap about what you put your product in. After 3 years how does this go unnoticed?

S G: Love the coffee here and no its not spiked coffee. Bourbon is actually a plant's name from where coffee is sourced! The coffee is deep and bold, the milk consistent and frothy. The venue is beautiful! With a clear Kenyan theme. Spacious too.

Ddheardya (Dd): meh, it was okay. Aztec chai was good but mostly tastes like spicy milk, would have preferred to taste more flavor aside from spice. Sandwich was overpriced for quality. Having been a barista for starbux and dunkin, could have seen a bit more friendliness from the Barista. Seemed like a bummer when i came in :/ Cool chalk board menu tho.

Liz González: I am visiting from the south and came across this location thanks to a friend/google recommendation. Very aesthetically pleasing spot! The service was super friendly and quick, and my panini and coffee were made perfectly! Really a cozy atmosphere.

Brent Berkley: So glad I found this place while walking to the big chain coffee shop. Great coffee!

Heather: Had the virunga as a pour over and it was really good. Well described from their menu. I'd recommend this place for a coffee on the go

Will Dkn: Great decor, based on Rwandan styles, also where the coffee is sourced from. music is on point, and the ambiance is great for getting some work done or meeting friends.

Lucius Domitius Aurelianus (Augustus): Good tasting and well priced coffee. Service was slow but it seemed like they were quite understaffed and I ordered something which takes a while. Egg a cheese tasted good.

Tim Possible: Convenient location for nearby offices, medical centers, etc. Friendly staff that remembers your order to the T. And most importantly, very good light roast coffee.

Dan Edwards: Coffee with a purpose. (And that’s just how it should be…)

Sweet Science Coffee: what do users think?


Carolyn K: This is a wonderful little coffee shop and a must visit if you’re taking a coffee shop tour of DC. The parking was not great, so I had to part about 4 blocks away and walk. The shop was really cute inside and was not super crowded which was nice. The coffee and food was delicious!
Response: Carolyn, thank you for stopping by and taking the time to review, mich appreciated:)! Sandra

Hind KH: It’s quite place to get work done. I liked their new social rose cold brew. The cinnamon roll and strawberry loaf are delicious
Response: Thank you for stopping by!

Dondré: A nice coffee shop. I'm not a coffee drinker but the chai is pretty good. They have an in house blend they make from scratch. Sweet science coffee has baked goods as well as oat meals and juices. The staff is good and will answer all your questions.
Response: Thank you for stopping by and the feedback! Sandra

Liam Mullins: I previously gave this place a lower rating for what was a once-off issue with a coffee I had ordered. Since going back, I’ve had more positive experiences. Overall, this is a great place. There are some things I would like to see changed though. (1) The limit on WiFi (I think it’s two hours). In the age of remote work, they’re missing out on work from home folks. I’ve worked from Sweet Science, only for my WiFi to elapse, even though I would have happily ordered more coffee to stay put. (2) The seating isn’t the warmest. With a couch or two, some other seating options, or even just more seating, the atmosphere could be a lot warmer. That shouldn’t stop anyone though—the coffee is great!
Response: Thanks for the updated rating and feedback Liam, we appreciate it!

Samantha Melvin: My husband and I stopped for a quick coffee and breakfast. Home made pop tarts were delicious and coffee was deep and rich. We both drink black and were not disappointed.
Response: Samantha, thank you for stopping by and taking the time to review us, we appreciate it:)! Sandra

Rick Kemp: I found out about sweet science coffee in the daily coffee news. I realized I had to go and I walked over 40 minutes to get there and back. I would have walked much, much further. I have been to many coffee shops in many cities in the United States and most have pastries.This coffee shop pastries are beyond outstanding. So much so that I left with two bags of the pastries. Even if you are not a coffee drinker it's worth going simply for the pastries. They have two talented pastry chefs on-site and that makes all the difference. It is also my understanding that in the afternoon there is a different pastry offering which I have not yet had the pleasure of trying. When it comes to the coffee this is a very unique shop in that they have your typical espresso drinks but with very great coffees. In the multiple brewing area, which opens at 10:00 a.m. daily, those really interested exploring the limitless bounds of coffee flavors will be delighted with all the options. Hopefully, the photos will give you a good idea of the ever-changing coffee options and the available brewing methods. One of the very unique aspects of this coffee shop is that they determine which brew method is the best for a specific coffee and yes you should leave it to the professionals. I see this more and more at the better coffee shops where they will use the brew method that best suits the coffees flavor profile. You will have the opportunity to taste coffee flavors that you would never think are possible. Enjoy.

Ted Lai: Cortado very tasty. The vegetable quiche could have been warmed a bit longer because the inside was still very cold, but I saw potential. Scones were awesome. This place in NoMa is worth going back repeatedly.
Response: Ted, thank you so much for the feedback and taking the time to write a review! I will make sure that we increase the heating time on the Quiche. Best wishes, Sandra

monica yarur: LOVE the cortado! And the pastries are so delicious. Great place, 100% recommended!
Response: Hi Monica, thank you so much, we‘ll let our pastry chef know :)!

Zoe Weaver: This is probably one of my favorite coffee shops for working in DC! Low volume music, great pastries and drinks, wifi, outlets, and friendly service. Parking in this area is a bit crazy, but overall great experience.
Response: Zoe, thank you so much for the feedback and kind words :), we appreciate it! Sandra

Whitney Dobson: The coffee is delicious here but customer focus is off. After having two coffee drinks (~$10) over 1.5h I was set to order lunch, but realized I'd been kicked off the internet with a black out period of 5 hours. I asked the staff if there was a way to extend it and they said no. At this point there was me and one other person in the store. I had to pack up and go to Peets around the corner to order lunch and another coffee to keep working. Cool spot and good coffee, but have some procedures in place that don't make it a great place to knock out work and keep guzzling good coffee. Peets is around the corner and much more accommodating.

Grace Street Coffee Roasters: what do users think?


Stephen Shields: Incredibly peaceful and calming after walking the Georgetown strip. The vanilla latte was a perfect temperature and silky smooth. Interesting note… their company roast their own beans and the syrups are made fresh in-house! The latte art is a nice touch to boot! The staff is incredibly friendly! Thanks for the great experience!

Luis Mantilla: Very cute on the inside but where sometimes that means a lack luster coffee this place delivers! Coffee was very good. The people were very kind. The neighborhood/street had tons of style. Overall great experience and definitely stopping by again. Photo attached is of the coffee plus the bagel shop I went to before. Great combination.

Lilly L: Nice staff, super helpful and welcoming. The place is rather small and the seats aren't comfortable. Could be a lot more cozy. Also it is pretty expensive, $5 for a 8oz mocha (photo) with oat milk.

Fernanda Lanzagorta: The coffee is good. The only down point is that even though this coffee shop is listed in several websites as a good place to work, you should be aware that during the weekend this doesn’t apply. They also have food in case you want to seat and enjoy. Available seating outside. Staff not to friendly.

Emma Rose Wooten: Cute cafe on a quaint little side street in Georgetown. Feels very granola since it’s part of a cycling shop. It doesn’t seem like the coziest place to study or do work but definitely a good place to socialize or regroup after a lot of walking!

Kinga Szilagyi: Good coffee but it’s inside of a store so it’s super noisy, not the best for working or taking work calls It’s noisy and loud as there is something going on at all times! There aren’t enough power plugs either but the Wi-Fi is good! I read that it’s one of the best cafes and I’m kinda disappointed

Terence Tuhinanshu: Great space, fine music selection, one of the best egg and cheese sandwiches I've ever had! Ice chai was great too. Definitely coming back here 💗

David Pohly: Outstanding coffee, but also a great place for food. Loved the grilled cheese and tomato soup.

Ido Simyoni: Nicely designed coffee shop if you’re looking to work remotely some people were even taking zoom calls). I got the oat milk latte and wasn’t really a fan of the coffee roast . My friend wanted a pastry but noticed two flies around it so skipped and went to the bakery next door (dog tag bakery).

Mohammed Al-Marri: Small but cozy place, the chairs could’ve been better but everything else just compensated the experience. The staff were really kind and welcoming, helped me pick my americano beans based on my preferences. I really enjoyed the coffee as well as the avocado toast, definitely coming back again!

India Lindsay: Nice ambiance, quite chatty and a little dark. Plenty of seating and I had no trouble finding an outlet. Tried the seasonal Sakura latte and it was average, didn’t taste anything more than a vanilla latte. The barista was unhelpful and looked annoyed when I was asking questions about the taste of specialty drinks.
Response: Hi, India! Thanks for taking the time to give us your feedback. I am sorry to hear that you had a negative service experience, and I can assure you that this is not the standard we strive to as a company. I will make note of this incident and forward your review on to our management team.

Ian Dutton: Really wanted to like this place more. Welcoming environment 🌈 and comfortable place to meet friends or pull out a laptop. But the service was indifferent at best. I asked for coffee to-stay but was served plastic that just ends up in the trash. Wanted a cannoli but was told I could only order 2 at a time, for $7! What?!? I can’t eat 2 and didn’t want to pay for 2! When I questioned the staff mumbled something about it being the same policy for cookies too. So if you don’t have enough money to buy more than you want, you can’t be their customer? Finally the outside street-seats could use some fixing up - just look at your neighbors with greenery and welcoming structures, not just blacktop and concrete dividers!
Response: Hi Ian, thank you for taking the time to write a review. If you ordered at the front counter, there may have been a miscommunication about the to-go status of your order. I apologize for any confusion, as we definitely like to stick to our reusable mugs whenever possible.

JONATHAN POTTER: Good ambience. Friendly although a little distracted (maybe post Thanksgiving effect). Coffee decent without being amazing. V good muffins and spinach twist. We didn’t try the bigger breakfast dishes. Plenty of space and v laid back.
Response: Thanks, Jonathan:)

L.A. Rusterucci: Walked in and was confused how seating and or service was being offered. I was told to find a seat and a server would be over to assist me. However, I had to flag a server down to place an order. Server was friendly and attentive once I got his attention. I love this area and the concept of this place. Will be back again.
Response: Thanks, L.A., apologies for any confusion regarding the seating:) We are still working on rebuilding the team and service can sometimes take longer than we'd like. I appreciate the feedback and will definitely share with the team. See you soon!

Katie Damon Scheuer: Tryst had exceptional service. When you sit down a friendly server comes over right away with water and a menu, and cleans off your table. Their food is delicious (breakfast burrito is so good) and their coffee solid. It’s bustling during weekdays but magically my favorite couch always seems to be open.

James Garza: Great spot for brunch or a coffee - very diligent about checking vaccination cards and although it can be full, they are great about finding a place to sit if there's a way they can accommodate you/your party.
Response: Thanks, James!

Jeremy Champagne: Great little neighborhood coffee and breakfast joint. Authentic teas (such as Dragon Wells) are available, and smoothies too (my favorite with kale, spinach and apple cider, Green Machine) !
Response: Thanks, Jeremy!

Tamer Mahmoud: Awesome place! Great coffee and munchies! We tried to go recently to do our work and just get out of the apt. A slight snafu, some area is quite dark. Dunno if this is by design. A lot of area are without an outlet. Probably by design. Still design or not, you lose a star (or two) when you slight customers' convenience for turnovers.
Response: Hi Tamer, thanks for taking the time to review Tryst! I appreciate the feedback on the outlets, our table/couch layout has changed over the past two years and it makes sense that the outlet situation may have suffered:( We will take a look at the accessibility and make some changes where we can. Thanks again for your time and for supporting Tryst, we appreciate it

Linden Yee: I love the atmosphere and the staff is always super friendly. The seasonal lattes are usually amazing and the sandwich and soup options are great. I like the Santa Cruz bagel and the nachos. The pastry isn't my favorite, the croissants are a little soggy and the cake is a bit bland for me, but the cookies have been good before. They don't have good WiFi so I wouldn't recommend this place to work, but a great spot to relax and talk.
Response: Thank you for the kind notes! Aric Sandoval Director of Operations aric@trysttradingcompany.com

Sadia Khan: I love exploring cafes when I visit new places, my first time in DC last year, I came across this very cute and charming cafe on the 18th street. We came for a light breakfast. Ordered turmeric milk, brownie , butter croissant and I don’t exactly remember the name but it was something coconut pie kind of thing but it was super delicious. I even loved the turmeric milk. We sat outside. Our server was a very pleasant guy. Would definitely recommend this place.
Response: Thanks, Sadia! I hope we see you again the next time you're in town:)

The Potter's House: what do users think?


Guy Edwards: Wonderful place and people!! Excellent coffee and food. The impressive and diverse selection of books makes it one of the city’s best book shops. It’s support to vulnerable community members through its pay it forward system and other means makes a big difference to many. A real gem.

Jessica C: I’m a regular. No indoor seating, but in exchange you can bring your dog inside. Mine loves going in for attention and treats. I love going in for an iced vanilla latte. The biscuit and honey with goat cheese is yummy. So is the breakfast sandwich. I also like their scones. Their mission is great. I feel good supporting local charity. And they have a great selection of books. Recommended.

Monica Puerto: I don’t know how this place doesn’t have more reviews when it is always bustling. I love the book collection they have here; it skews progressive and activism (what do you expect out of DC?). The food here is very simple but tasty and affordable. There is so much history here in this place as well; it has been around the early days of Adams Morgan which fed the homeless and I believe continues to.

Tamer Mahmoud: Awesome place. Great and unique book selection. I also wholly support their supports for the homeless and the community. That's a big attraction to this place. Their biscuits, egg, and cheese sandwich was absolutely delicious!

Haydar Celik: Very nice place to have coffee, read, and relax. There are books to purchase and I am sure the food is also good, at least they looked delicious. Will come back for lunch and coffee.

Jonathan Chang: I came for the coffee and Mac and cheese. Chill place. The vibe was full of social justice and community. The Batista just came back from a coffee competition and placed 13th in the nation. For a short time he was offering competition grade coffee, a bit pricey but totally it worth it. It was one of the best cups of coffee I've ever had. That Mac was the last order for the night and totally did not disappoint. It didn't taste like it came out of the box and had a creamy texture. I totally recommend.

Jason Alredge: It was like a library with tables and quite a bit of space. The breakfast food and coffee was good to enjoy.

Kaila Gilbert: Currently one of my favorite coffee shops! Caveat: you can now eat and drink on the patio, but will have to walk 2-3 blocks to go the bathroom (regardless of your ability status or if you are a customer). So that part bummed me out a little; the coffee is a little strong to leave folks hanging like that lol. But, hoping they can open the bathrooms again so you aren't waddling down the street in the middle of your coffee date. Still recommend for pick up and go! Great books, staff, coffee, and pastries. Just not for the pregnant or small-bladdered haha.

Dena Delaviz: This is vegan brekky bowl & sammie. Both yum. The bowl doesn’t have a cheese or bacon substitute so its missing a little umph the carnivorous version prob has.

Peter Liddicoat: Book shop cafe charm. Counter culture ☕, local crispy baby 🥐 (+other pastries, breakfas, lunch, food). WiFi

Paolo Verzani: exceptional espresso program. Truly incredibly gifted craftsman. When I visit from NYC I without fail come to visit this cafe and I always get a flat white and enjoy the oudoor seating they have and read my Bible and just unwind. It’s the greatest cafe with a really stunning food selection too! I love their avocado toast, it goes well with their habenero spicy jam!

Ido Simyoni: Such a hipster place for a weekend brunch. Really enjoyed the vibe, service and food. Everyone was so nice and friendly.

Sofia Diaz: We went because of the good reviews online, the place was nice and cozy we were excited to eat there. However after ordering and having paid we were told that we had to eat outside in the rain. It was not the best experience to say the least. Food was ok. I would have preferred to have been given a heads up before ordering.

Lindsay Bishop: The coffee, food & service here is fantastic! I'm a regular at this point- it's a great casual environment to work out of with excellent quality food & espresso. The vanilla Tahitian Latte Iced with Oat Milk is incredible, as well as the avocado toast & breakfast sandwich. Highly recommend!

Angela Huffaker: Carrot cake muffin with sage and cream cheese + breakfast sandwich where amazing, but the coffee was the show - Maximum Effort put in

Jeff E: Great coffee and food. They need to update their offerings online as they say open for dine in and they are not.

S B: Several people behind me got their orders before me. i asked what happened; woman said sorry making your red eye now. she had two cups in her hands and couldn’t tell which one had espresso shots and which one had something else. shockingly, during the pandemic, her colleague put his nose in both to figure it out. took a sip and it was full of vanilla. returned, and she acted like this was a casual mishap—really though, she forgot my red eye and then made a it with shots of vanilla, and then just handed me a new cup of coffee on the spot without even making espresso. kind of grossed me out and i had to work way too hard for a simple order that was overpriced ($6+).
Response: Hi there, we always aim to provide a great experience and we are very sorry that we did not deliver on that for you. Thank you for letting us know so that we can do better. We would appreciate the opportunity to make it right for you, can you please send us an email at sayhello@slipstreamdc.com with your name and contact info? Thank you again and we hope to make it right!

Ian Desouza: Came to this cafe because of the reviews but unsure how it’s reviewed so highly. Just ordered a couple of oat lattes, the price (excluding tip) was greater than $12. Unfortunately one of the worst coffees I’ve had, tbh I would rather go to Starbucks. The staff’s perfunctory service failed to compensate for a poor quality coffee.

Sue Loftis: This was such a cute little coffee shop. Small and not kid friendly. I had the vanilla iced latte, it was perfectly sweetened, not too much sugar that overpowered the coffee flavor. And the Avocado toast was prob the best I’ve had anywhere. I’ve never had it the way they make it but I was pleasantly surprised.

cosmopus: Nice, cozy place. Nice spot to start your day with.Negative side: not clean utensils

Soho Tea & Coffee: what do users think?


Weekend Warrior: It was a good place to get work done. The outside area was quite noisy being near traffic, but the inside was fine. Only issue was that the servers forgot to bring my sandwich's to the table, or even call out that they were ready. If I didn't see them, we never would got them.

Hannah Sadollah: Mobile ordered to avoid the line and ended up waiting 20 minutes more than everyone else that arrived around the same time we did. Coffee come with the food so we just had to sit and wait for 30 minutes. The sandwich was $10 and it was average in taste. Coffee was good. If you come here only order a drink and do not mobile order.

George Ivanov: Tuna salad had mold growing on the tomatoes, all orders were delayed, and the wrong items were sent out multiple times. A line of disgruntled customers were talking to staff about their orders the entire time I was here. The staff at this coffee shop should be retrained and management replaced. You're better off going to any nearby Starbucks.

Lisa Smith: My favorite cafe in DC! I come here very often. The place has changed tremendously after the new owners took over. I love their pastries and teas. My favorite is the Green Pomegranate tea. They have happy hour as well. Wine and beer on a great price.
Response: Lisa, Thank you for sharing your feedback!

Debra Olson: Delicious coffee and tea, plus delicious pastries. Friendly staff and quite reasonable prices. Nice patio for eating outside or comfy chairs and tables inside. I suggest it for a relaxing weekend afternoon spot.
Response: Thank you Debra for your feedback. We will look forward to serve you again!!

Victoria Jones: Sooooo delicious!! Definitely top 5 best breakfast I've ever had!! It was my 1st time here. I had a Croissant with ham spinach egg & cheddar cheese!! Blueberry muffin & oj!! The service was great! The cashier guy was so cool & informative about the menu! He was short lol idk a name

Just a name: There are hundreds of coffee and tea recipes but there's only a few that are any good. This place has the latter. You can always judge a place by how they brew an Americano. Of they can mess up something so easy, they are not worthy of any money. This place nails it. Food is not bad.

Kiara Ivanova: Hands down, the best local coffee shop I've been in DC. Fresh and delicious pastries with a great variety of REAL loose tea and delicious food. My favorite spot from now on!
Response: Thank you for your feedback. We will look forward to serve you again!!

Michael Kellar: Comfortable cafe, nice service, awesome location. Come to DuPont, get a little off the normal path, and definitely worth a visit while you do something work or just wait for a meeting.
Response: Thank you for your feedback. We will look forward to serve you again!!

Jamie Gaitor: Liana was a fantastic server! We came in a little after her shift ended but she was happy to take care of us and converse with our group. The coffee was great, will be back whenever we visit DC again!

Filter Coffeehouse & Espresso Bar - Foggy Bottom: what do users think?


Benjamin W.: Filter has been a high quality independent coffee place in DC, close to many George Washington University buildings. It was renovated in the last half of 2021, but retained many of the great staff people. Quality coffee, chill atmosphere. It's just not a place to camp out and do work or stuff like that

Jadon Marianetti: This is the anti Starbucks coffee shop. It's also connected to one of the most lovely inviting lobbies that was recently renovated in DC. They only use ceremony coffee, the best roastery in the Mid-Atlantic. They used to only do french press because the best beans in the mid-Atlantic and french press is what people who really like coffee want to drink. They also now do pour overs and espresso drinks. They don't do Wi-Fi and laptops. They encourage conversation. it's not for everybody... But they are my fav coffee shops in DMV.

Emilee Tin: Great Staff & Owner. Coffee and tea were fantastic! Vanilla Coconut Tea was to die for 10/10. Relaxing, comfortable, and quiet sitting area to drink a beverage and get work done. Got productive studying and assignments done. Good mid day pick me up. Close enough to campus that I don’t have to leave too much time to get to class, but far enough that I am not distracted by everything.

Michelle Brown: We were excited to visit this place to try the French press coffee. We were looking forward to sitting down and enjoying the coffee with a breakfast pastry. When we entered, we were handed a mask before we could approach the counter. Asked if we were going to drink it there and did we want ceramic mugs. We said yes that would be great. We were then told we had to show proof of vaccine before we could use ceramic mugs!! Seriously!! Most ridiculous thing I have ever been asked since the pandemic started. There were only 2 stand up tables in the front. You have to go to the back of the building which puts you in the lobby of a building. Coffee was okay, French press wads served in 2 small paper cups and the girl behind the counter had to put the cream in. I prefer to make my own.

Caleb Trantham: Just went for the first time today and it's great! They have a selection of V60 and other Hario and Fellow products for home brewers along with many single origin Ceremony coffees to buy. If you're a coffee geek, this is your place. The staff were very nice and showed me how to clean the thermos I got, and the Ethiopian pour over I got was delicious too. Definitely going back! Glad to have them open once more.

Patrick Walsh: 5 stars for the coffee, but even by DC standards it's way overpriced. $7 plus tax for an iced latte, and one day later I got an iced latte of equal quality and volume (these are both third-wave shops) at Emissary x Pergamino for $4.50 plus tax. Paying for the neighborhood?

David Roche: Best coffee i've had so far in DC. Knowledgable baristas, they do a mean long black. The only negative is the lack of/awkward seating space

Matt Graham: Good coffee and muffins. Huge, hidden seating area. A much better place to work than my freezing cold, shared office.

Dondré: This place is a good coffee shop. It has up stairs seating and downstairs standing room with bar tops and tables facing the street. There is no WiFi here, they encourage conversation. Upstairs is a dope rendition of DC in the future, a collaboration between artists and architects which is really cool. I'm not a coffee guy but the person I was with said the coffee is really good. My chai was alright.

Alexander Smallwood: This place makes my day every morning. They source great coffees and know what to do with them. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and competent. The culture is accessible, but undeniably quality centric. It's not the experimental, multi-roaster, brew lab type place that I generally look for, but it is the dedicated, consistent, friendly, quality oriented place that I'm stoked to have right next to my office.

Sidamo Coffee & Tea: what do users think?


Kodi Wieland: Wow! The best cup of coffee my husband and I have ever had, hands down - not an exaggeration. Way to ruin all other coffee for us. There was only one person working and the service was great, friendly and efficient. I wish we lived closer, this would be our daily coffee.

Leandra de Labastida: The best Iced Chai Latte and Bacon/Egg Bagel, I've ever had. The staff is friendly and the location has fantastic WIFI. I was able to get a lot of work done. The place does get busy because it is amazing.

Black Star Dust: Wonderful place. The chai is the best in DC and Baltimore areas. It’s the best I’ve ever had by far. Rich natural flavors.

McLain Saba: My go-to coffee shop in DC 😊 The people are wonderful, the ambiance cozy, and the drinks are DELICIOUS! Their iced chai tea latte is my favorite, tried their hot chocolate for the first time and love it. Quality drinks, quality wifi, quality space. All around wonderful

Noah Ifergan: Beautiful Ethiopian coffee shop with authentic ambience and delicious coffee. Workspace and wifi too. Highly recommend!

sefanit tekle: This place is amazing! Their coffee was amazing and so is their breakfast sandwiches! It's hard to find good places for breakfast on H street so I was happy to grab something quick. Highly recommend 10/10 :)

Rachel B: Really wonderful coffee shop, and I absolutely love the Ethiopian influence. It’s something so unique to a coffee shop. Nice to have a place highlighting Ethiopian coffees! I got a very delicious everything bagel here as well (see picture below 😜). The shop itself has cozy, quiet vibes (at least when I was there), and great service! The other cool thing is they serve some Ethiopian food - also see the picture below! Didn’t get to try that since it was breakfast time, but would love to try it someday. Look forward to returning. #sidamo #coffee #tea #Ethiopian #cozy #everythingbagel

Shantrice King: I went to Sidamo around noon today with the plan of doing a couple hours of work on my laptop. I have been to the coffee and tea shop a couple of times before but always on a weekday. After I ordered, I sat down at one of the many empty tables and pulled out my laptop. I barely had time to open my web browser before the owner came over to me and said he would allow me to stay for 1 hr and then I had to leave. He went on to say that on the weekends he does not allow people to do work there because " you spend $5 and then are here all day. If 8 of you come and use each of the tables then I make what $50, can I pay my light bill with $50?" Both his math and customer service skills are off. I told him ok and went to the counter to retrieve the pastry I ordered. He followed me over to say that I needed to wrap up what I was doing and if I wanted, I could go to the backyard area and work from one of the tables there. He emphasized that I had already used up 15 minutes of the 1 hr he had allotted me so I needed to move quickly. I collected my pastry, packed up and left. To stay would have been interpreted as consent for how I was spoken to and treated. I understand running a small business is hard but if there are constant issues such as people working on their laptops during the weekend and taking up space, then he could implement simple solutions such as signage on the tables and other visible areas that let customers know that you can't do work there on the weekends and there are time limits for the tables. He lacks effective communication skills which I believe is critical to running a business. I am also disappointed by this experience because I was hoping to introduce family and friends to it when they visit the area. 0/10, would not recommend.

Erin DiGiuseppe: Went here for breakfast after staying at an air bnb nearby. They have several vegan options, including a vegan breakfast (hummus, tomato, lettuce, avocado on a bagel) that was DELICIOUS, and some vegan cookies as well. We also got the Ethiopian coffee service which was really special and comes with burning incense that really adds to the olfactory experience. I’m sad we’ll be leaving today but I’m so glad we came. The wait was a bit long, but worth it.

Lauren S: My sister and I didn't get to try the coffee. Heard good things about this place and decided to stop by after a workout. Before we visited Sidamo, we went to Whole Foods to buy soup and other items. Then we entered Sidamo and placed our Whole Food bags and backpack at a table so we could order our coffee at the counter. But before we could order our drinks from the barista, a man sitting at one of the tables, possibly the owner or manager, said something to us that we didn't fully understand. He either said no Starbucks or no service, not really sure. Maybe he was confused and thought the Whole Foods soup container was a Starbucks cup. The vibe/atmosphere of this coffee shop was incredibly unfriendly, the man was belittling, and both my sister and I felt very uncomfortable. I'm sure the coffee is great here however we were unable to order because the man was very unwelcoming. Do not recommend this place.

Swing's Coffee: what do users think?


Samantha: Had one of the best cortado in my life for less than $4 ! Their pain au chocolat is really good too! Clean and elegant interior design made the experience very delightful ☺️

Vanessa Anderson: Lovely, peaceful place for studying and getting together with friends! Smells good like coffee when you come in and the service is done with speed and grace. Thanks!

Frank Mikolajczak: It's a very straightforward no fluff coffee shop. They aren't trying to sell you "stuff". It's just their great quality roasting and classic coffee drinks. This place is good to sit for a few with a latte or just run in between meetings and get something to go.

Katherine Jones: Way better than chain coffee. And they have several coffee origins. I'm taking one back home.

Alabama OUTSIDErs: The coffee was great and the staff was very friendly! You aren't (as of late Dec 2021) encouraged to stay inside after you get your order, so we weren't able to enjoy the ambiance so much. There was a table outside, under the portico of the building it's in. So there IS a place to sit, out of the rain, if you need it.

Mike Galante: Really excellent espresso drinks. Both the cortado and flat white were excellent.

Perks Advisor: Swings in DC brews a very consistent and good cup of coffee. It’s location is just steps from the White House. You can also pick from a variety of pastries to go down with your coffee. The shop is small but there are some seats to sip away your day. Swings roasts their coffee and is knowledgeable on all things coffee. This company has been around for years and is worth a visit if you happen to find yourself in Washington and in need of some caffeine.

Paul Jarczynski: Ok coffee but the toilets... my God. Bio hazard at 10am on a Wednesday.

Arianna Vranas: Very kind staff and a delicious cold brew! I picked up a cold brew from them and walked down to the Sculpture Garden and had a lovely afternoon sipping my coffee in the sun ☀️

Bojan Divjak: First, they do not serve in porcelain cups but in cardboard ones. Secondly, the staff should be a little kinder. Third, coffee is okay, but it has some line of acidity, which I don't like.

Gregorys Coffee: what do users think?


Scott “DC Cheetah” Suchyta: As someone who seeks out good coffee, Gregory's is a place that I will go into if I don't have the option for a shop that roasts in-house. I find the coffee more palatable than something like Starbucks and I've generally had good experiences with the staff. It's still not my favorite coffee, but it meets the the threshold that I'll have it when I desperately need coffee.
Response: Scott, thank you so much for the feedback. All of our coffee is roasted in house. Sorry to here the coffee at the 1900 L st location wasn't up to standards. I would recommend trying our Peppermint Mocha on your next visit.

Krystal Perez: Cute little coffee shop I found on my lunch break this evening , the baristas are so sweet and creative I felt at home here ... they allow inside seating and presented me with a fancy latte, with art included! Keep it up ladies, your the best !!!
Response: Thanks for the feedback Krystal! Next time you visit trying one of our cold brew options, I recommend the Flower Power.

Saray Fischer: Stopped by this afternoon for a quick pick me up, I was surprised that this cafe was open but it feels like home , great music, soft lighting, tons of plants, and the male barista served me at my table, I loved it. I felt special and will be returning when I need to get out of the office more often . I will be recommending this chain to my coworkers , family , and friends !

Monika Raj: The staff are among the nicest folks I’ve ever met and make visiting this place worth it. However, the store consistently has issues with their online ordering system…often times it’s down or underestimates how long it will take to be ready. This in no way is the fault of the staff and they do their best to work with what they have…but this is not reliant if you are hoping to grab coffee before a meeting
Response: Monika, thank you so much for the feedback and for bring this issue to our attention. We will address this right away.

Elizabeth Hung: Loved my experience and drink here! The indoor decor is so hip and cute. The menu choices all sounded amazing but I went with the matcha latte with oat milk. It was perfectly matcha-y and unsweetened (my favorite). One of the best matcha drinks I have gotten in the dc area. My friend got the chai and he said it was great as well.
Response: Awesome news Elizabeth, thanks for the feedback! Glad you enjoyed the Matcha! See you soon!

J D: One of the best mocha lattes I've ever had. It wasn't too sweet, had a great flavor, good size, good price, and well made. Place had a good atmosphere. Was clean for a 2PM visit. Had a bit of foot traffic, and pretty busy, but only one person in front of me. Coffees were coming out at a good pace and the staff was nice. I'd definitely come back and go out of my way if I were in the area to get another coffee from here.

Linsay Culver: --------Friday, September 7, 2018 @ 1pm----- I'm sipping one of their mochas as I write this and I have to say I'm impressed. It isn't often that I get a great flavored coffee that isn't over sweetened. The coffee doesn't even have a hint of bitterness. The barista pulls a perfect shot. She also didn't overuse the mocha sauce or flavor. The coffee tastes a lot like Evan Bros out of Sandpoint, Idaho. I also got a chocolate chip cookie, which isn't the best, but it's decent. I'm going to save the rest of it and put it in the microwave at home. I think it will be better. Chris, the cashier was super nice and extremely helpful. Wish I would've seen the baristas name, too. She is a very talented barista. Sheade a perfect heart in my crema! Anyways, the atmosphere was modern industrial. Not overly comfortable, but quaint. The service was excellent and fast. I'll be back when I'm back in DC in a few weeks. If you are in the area try it. If a place can make a decent mocha, the rest of their coffees are generally going to be good, too.

Sharon Angela Naidoo: This place ticks all the boxes, good service, GREAT COFFEE and wonderful atmosphere. I have visited this coffee place everyday I stayed here. The coffee always had a personal touch. The picture below is a cortado with skim milk.

Fred Kingman: My wife and I agree that this cafe has good drip coffee, and great customer service. There is indoor and outdoor seating, we chose outdoors. She had the breakfast burrito. I tried the skinny and it was wholesome. Definitely worth a second visit next time were in town.
Response: Fred, thank you so much for your feedback. Next time your in town, your coffee and breakfast sandwich will be on us./

Adam Rutkowski: There needs to be some customer service training. Business opens at 7am. I showed up at 7:03. It was raining outside. The door was unlocked. I entered and was told I had to leave because you weren’t open, yet. Instead of inviting me to sit in the foyer area in a chair, out of the rain, I was escorted out of the space and the door was locked behind me… in the rain.
Response: Hi Adam - I'm so sorry to hear about your experience this morning. It is definitely not how we should have welcomed you in out of the rain and served you right away even as we were setting. I've addressed this with the team and I want to invite you back in for coffee and a treat on us to make up for this. DeeDee ,the manager on site will be there and will take care of you! So sorry again and looking forward to seeing you again. -Greg

La Colombe Coffee Roasters: what do users think?


Joseph Mathias: Cute little coffee shop in Blagden Alley. I frequent La Colombe often, this was my first one in DC. Location is GREAT, with the wall art. On a warm summer day, you can take your coffee to go and explore the many arts in the alley. The only complaint I have is that the menu is very limited, and they have only pastries (I attribute this to the fact that there’s 2 other coffee shops in the alley, that’s probably why. But it would be nice to see them add bagels or other small bites to the menu). Something else as well (and mentioned by a few others) is that there’s No WiFi, so if you’re looking to get coffee and catch up on work, this is not the best place. Staff was nice!

Tarek Ghaly: By far the best coffee in DC! I have tried several coffee places around Washington but I would rate this as the best of them all...staff are very friendly and welcoming. The place is cozy and in a quiet area behind Marriott courtyard..tried the biscotti and cannele from their bakeries and they weren't as good as expected.. restrooms are clean and tidy.. I would definitely visit again.

Phil Armstrong: Popped in here for a cup and a pastry, and enjoyed both very much. The pastry was a delicious blueberry scone with a vanilla icing drizzle on top. The medium roast drip was excellent. I like its location in the neat little alley, too.

Josh Roberts: You can't beat the charming location of this coffee shop. I've been working nearby at the convention center and various area hotels for a while but I didn't know about this hidden gem called "Blagden Alley." With its colorful murals and wide cobblestone streets, it's such a gift to DC. It's like if Old Town Alexandria had an artsier vibe. Anyway, back to La Colombe. I had a cappuccino here and found it to have a light, frothy texture and a robust flavor. After being outside in what felt like 20 degree weather, this was a much needed respite.

Joan Melendez: I love this space! I 💜this coffee company. I have my places in DC and NYC that I do frequent. I just am wishing and saying a little prayer... that La Colombe would look at National Harbor when they are needing their next spot!

Aaron Peters: Great selection of single source coffees - it's unclear if they come from a single farm or just a single region. Super friendly staff, and they have oat milk chai on tap.

Jorge Zurita-Coronado: Great location with friendly staff. Great selection of pastries as well. Inside seating is a little limited because of the pandemic. Great place to do some reading or get some work done.

Charles Michael: The place does get busy because it is amazing. The staff is friendly and the location has fantastic coffee. I was able to get a lot of work done. The place does get busy because it is amazing.coffee my favorite, tried their hot chocolate for the first time and love it. Quality drinks, quality wifi, quality space. All around wonderful My go-to coffee shop in DC 😊 The people are wonderful, the ambiance cozy, and the drinks are DELICIOUS! Their iced chai tea latte is my favorite, tried their hot chocolate for the first time and love it. Quality drinks, quality wifi, quality space. All around wonderful

Sergio Ortiz: I absolutely love the style of this place. Small, hole-in-the-wall joint that serves excellent coffee. It's like a secret gift to the area. Danny the hostess was knowledgeable and knows her coffee! The pour-overs here are great and they feature various types of both espresso and drip coffees from dark to light! Music is enjoyable and not distracting. The style of the pottery they use is incredibly beautiful and striking. It comes from a handmade seller in Italy which gives it an authentic feel to touch. Definitely coming again next time I visit DC!

Jenn Z: We just followed the crowed and it led us to this coffee place. It wasn’t disappointing at all! Very good coffee and bakeries. It resides in Blagden Valley which was interesting itself. It was an old shabby part of town now is under going transforming to a better place. The colorful murals lighten up the valley. Parking was easy ( from what I observed) just park on the brick road.

The Wydown: what do users think?


Aramis Penland: Lovely indoor and outdoor setting? Check. Solid coffees and mochas? Check. A good variety of breakfast savories like salmon bowls, sausage and egg biscuit sandwiches, and avocado toast? Check. All of this making the H St Wydown repeatable? You bet! Ok to be fair not everything was 5 stars. The avocado toast is not $13.50 good especially when compared with other avocado toasts you can get across town. And the sausage and egg biscuit sandwich, though tasty, is not too different than it's McDonald's predecessor. But overall, the setting plus variety of offerings plus good coffee still make this a win.

Leo Liu: Wydown is the definition of modern coffee shop aesthetics. Black and gold interior, floral designs, and friendly barista. Located inside the Apollo luxury apartment and steps away to the Solid State Bookshop. Will have to come back often!

Paula Johnston: Fun little shop filled with savory and sweet treats. Delicious house coffee. The breakfast sandwiches are tasty—just lacking in presentation.

Charlene Bermudez: The baristas were very considerate of customers and paid extra time and close attention to detail when it comes to getting the order right and queuing it into their workflow, as well as conversing with us. Really cool space. It's connected to an apartment complex, which offers more indoor seating along with a warm and inviting aesthetic. There was a good amount of outdoor seating too, but with winter around, it's nice to have that indoor seating option.

Erin French: The Wydown is 100% the coffee shop spot to hit -- I'm visiting for work, and have popped in more times than I'd like to admit for an iced oat matcha (DELISH). The staff is all so friendly - I have to shout out the H St. Icons Ashley and Izzy for being so wonderful. When you go, you HAVE to get the chocolate orange crinkle cookie - it's truly the best thing I have ever tasted in a cookie.

Charlotte Meindersma (Charlotte's Law): Beautiful space. My cappuccino was more like an espresso macchiato size. Loved the iced lavender latte (which is bigger than a European size latte). Not sure how it works with the seating in the appartement open space area of the building.

Sam Odle: Wydown has been a go-to coffee and meetup spot on H St for years now. The Gatsby vibes paired with plenty of indoor and outdoor seating is hard to beat.

Chloe J.: Really disappointing experience. This place is cute and the breakfast sandwiches are good, but the coffee and the barista’s attitude were both truly awful today. We got oat milk cappuccinos and they were so bad that all three of us only managed a few small disgusting sips. I don’t usually send things back, but since I had dropped $30, I politely asked if they could remake our cappuccinos since they were very clearly burnt. The woman working the register was very nice and accommodating, but the barista was incredibly rude and tried to gaslight us into thinking we didn’t know what a cappuccino was supposed to taste like. I would have been less disappointed if he had just declined to make us new drinks, rather than rudely telling us we don’t know what coffee is supposed to taste like. 0/10 for this barista. We did appreciate the woman at the register who tried to make up for the barista guy’s rudeness by offering us drip coffee instead.

Felix Torres: Very friendly service and a great cappuccino. Also, their biscuits are incredibly good, like just get anything with a biscuit, the best.

Parker Batterson: Low-key one of my favorite spots in town. Preparation, atmosphere and customer experience 5/5. They always have a good slow bar menu and colorful single origin espresso. Highly recommend.

DUA DC Coffee: what do users think?


Swastika Nohara: Very delicious coffee! Their cappuccino is simply the best, right amount of everything and perfect temperature. During summer, choose Kedua Coffee with ice, very delightful and refreshing. Wonderful croissant and pastries too. There are quite plenty of space inside. Friendly shop assistants. Overall atmosphere is really nice.

Kim Pop (kimpopusa): Delicious gourmet coffee! This is really really good coffee, don’t go anywhere else if nearby. Caught them at an event pop up in Nova burbs serving “cherry blossom” coffee (rose flavor from Indonesia) which I loved so much I went into the district to drink again! Not on menu but owner was very kind to make it again. Friend got hazelnut and said that was also very good.

Ido Simyoni: Gorgeous coffeeshop in downtown DC. I had the oat milk latte which had an interesting flavor, not my regular pallet but I quickly got used to it. They have some food options sadly no gluten free bread so I couldn’t try that.

Tenny Kristiana: Came here around 9 am and it was quite a line. However service was quick and awesome. As Indonesian I love espresso mixed with coconut water. We called it cocopresso there and here they called it Klavee. Taste good, slightly sour a bit compared to one in Indonesia which is mostly sweet. Definitely will come back for Klavee and probably try their food, saw several options and all of them look good.

Steph D: Came here and tried the pischok, a banana chocolate dessert. Having an Indonesian background, I had never tried it before so wanted to give it a try. It was pretty good; you can't really go wrong with banana and chocolate.

Intan Harya: I ordered some coffee beans online as Christmas present for my husband and my cousin. There was a hiccup while ordering for my cousin which was completely my own fault. I emailed Dua Coffee and they patiently helped me through the ordering process to the point that they even checked their website's backend. Long story short, I successfully order my coffee beans. Little did I know that their coffee beans were freshly roasted, like legit freshly roasted. It arrived in front of my door faster than what I had expected. For sure the coffee beans are superb, it prettily bloomed when we brewed it. Dua means "two" or somehow "2nd". However, I would tell you don't second guess yourself to get their coffee beans.

Wei Hsu: Americano and latte are good! Brewed coffee smells great. Nice location and the environment is bright and clean!

Ankita Chatterjee: Indonesian coffee place with limited but cute seats inside. Also has outdoor patio seating. They have alternative milk options. They have sweet treats including some Indonesian options like banana wrapped and fried like a spring roll. Overall, unique and cute. Would definitely visit again!

Sam Canchola: Very hospitable and warm, especially considering the dynamics of COVID changing every week. Ordered the owners recommendations - Brown Latte and the hot Kopi Kedua. Both were great!

Krupa Shah: Decadent coffee! Upon walking in, I was embraced with the smell of freshly brewed coffee. I ordered a vanilla latte with half the vanilla syrup amount and substituted with oat milk. The latte was heavenly and the barista made a beautiful design to add to the experience. limited in door / out door seating, and very hipster decor. Overall a cute little spot for a quick afternoon coffee fix or a solo work day if you can find a spot to sit.
Response: Glad to know that you had a great experience. Thank you for taking the time to share it. Hope to see you back!

Blue Bottle Coffee: what do users think?


Vinay Kamisetty: Great place for a morning coffee after a jog or a bike ride. Outdoor seating with an amazing view and spacious indoor seating. Single roast coffee gives u that light caffeine punch and you can customize it with an oatmilk /almond milk. It offers pastries (never tried though). Last but not the least, courteous and cheerful staff makes this place enjoyable.

Emma Rose Wooten: A great place to do work or catch up with a friend over coffee. The vibes are more bright/clean/sleek as opposed to cozy and ambient, so depends on what you’re looking for. I got the matcha latte which was beautiful and very matcha-y but next time I’d add vanilla because it’s unsweetened. There’s plenty of indoor/outdoor seating. I sat outside in the sun with my latte and it was so nice!

Aramis Penland: Ugh it's hard not to like Blue Bottle Coffee. I'm tempted to give less than 5 stars because the prices, even by DC standards, are high ($6.50 for a 16oz iced coffee, $5.50 for a chocolate croissant). But despite that, I can't stop myself from coming back here again and again because the flavors are really on point, and the setting, right on the Georgetown canal with really great outdoor sitting options (both directly outside and across the canal), is perfect for reading, relaxing, or chatting on a nice day. On a cooler day, the indoor open concept setting is great as well. Being a sweet tooth, the New Orleans Style iced coffee is my go-to. Pastry wise, the Almond Tart, especially when warmed up, is divine.

Sophie Jylan: I love the vibes of this cafe. It’s slightly tucked away, with beautiful outdoor seating, a clean interior, and lots of open windows for COVID safety. The only drawback is that the coffee is pretty pricey but all of the food was delicious. (I tried the cascara fizz and buckwheat berry cake). It’s the perfect place to study in the afternoon, especially because it is open later than most cafes. The staff was very friendly too. Would recommend!

Jonathan French: Really clean and good coffee and drinks. Line was a little long, but that’s to be expected with a place like this. The drinks tasted good, with us getting a decaf mocha and a lemon fizz (can’t recall the exact name of the latter). There’s decent amount of seating but not enough for everyone. Our recommendation is to both stand in line and then one person snipe a seat of someone leaving. Easy to get to though, and was quite enjoyable.

Jeffrey Wotowiec: High quality coffee shop. Hidden on a dead-end alley in Georgetown. One of the few places that will give you sparkling water with your espresso shot…just remember to ask for it. My favorite croissant in town, if you can get there early before they sell out. Open airy indoor seating at communal tables & booths. A few public outdoor bistro tables too (but grab an extra napkin to clean one off). Zero parking, unless you illegally park in the dead-end alley. But don’t count on that during a crowded weekend. I gave 4.5 stars as the staff churns out coffee at a slower West Coast pace, which often leads to long wait times.

C. Pine: I used to wait in long long lines for this coffee joint in San Francisco. But this visit in Georgetown, I ordered an iced coffee ($6 small) and it tasted so acidic I couldn't even finish it.

Jereth Tolentino: Ordered a Matcha Latte and Cascara Fizz. For a quick bite I ordered a Almond tart. It was surprisingly good. The place has a nice vibe and good music playing. Plenty of places to sit down in and outside. I usually stop by here every time I go to Georgetown. I recommend this place if your in Georgetown.

MAJED ALBRAK: Steaming it's as it supposed to be for an speciality coffee, the tast of flat white is similar to hot chocolate, the place atmosphere and location is great, the employees are very welcoming.

Joseph Mathias: I’ve been to many Blue Bottle locations all over, and decided to stop by here on a recent visit to Georgetown. It’s kind of hidden, you wouldn’t know it was there unless you walk down to the canal way. Atmosphere and vibe was very chill. I ordered the New Orleans brew over ice and a banana bread. The New Orleans was DELICIOUS, definitely one of my faves off the menu. The banana bread was good too, not too sweet. Was it worth the price? No. The prices are super expensive, especially by DC standards (and the fact that there are a dozen other coffee shops and Starbucks around the area who sell the same thing but for much less). The male barista who served me was nice.

Jacob's Coffee House: what do users think?


Joseph Wilson: Just a heads up, this place didn’t have any seating available when we went, probably because of COVID. They do have a couple tables still set up outside though, but no seats. We ordered a lox bagel sandwich, an egg and cheese and beef sandwich, and a coffee. Everything was really good, but the lox bagel sandwich was exceptional! I highly recommend it if you like raw smoked salmon.

Charlotte Meindersma (Charlotte's Law): Best bagels in town! Really good European style coffee (American size!), lovely people, really nice outside seating and they provide cookies for dogs!

Henrietta: Came here randomly because I needed some coffee. I love when I run into a place that delivers quality food and service without having to do any advanced research! I got the cold brew coffee with oat milk and sugar free vanilla/ caramel. I also got a hummus veggie wrap and added Turkey and red pepper sauce. Sooo good! Please consider adding a Turkey wrap to the menu! I’ll be back 😎

E Petey: A DC gem. We love Jacob's Coffee house: great selection of breakfast and lunch, great service, the perfect neighborhood coffee shop. AMAZING breakfast sandwiches & we love their smoothies: blueberry banana is the house fave.They have a very seamless and safe protocol for contactless pick up. Definitely stop in if you're new to the neighborhood, you'll feel right at home!

Amelia Anthony: Absolutely love this place! Jazz (the owner) became more than just someone I bought my coffee from, she would always stop to talk when I came in. She’s so thoughtful and sweet and the food and coffee is amazing! My favorite thing from there is the chicken salad on a croissant. Support small business, shop here!

Rachel Cipkins: Pretty good breakfast food! They are very COVID safe. There is no indoor seating even though the pictures on maps shows so

Jime Colado: I loved visiting! The owner was absolutely kind to us, we chatted a bit and had the most amazing breakfast. The food and coffee are delicious and feels like home, so cozy. I loved the concept, and I’m looking forward to come back soon!

Dana Grosser-Clarkson: Awesome vanilla latte! I've had about a dozen and they are always amazing. I've tried a few of the panini sandwiches and my favorite are the two with pesto (grilled chicken or mozzarella and tomato). If getting order to go get the ciabatta bread so it doesn't get soggy. Breakfast sandwiches are good too! And they also sell good Korean masks!

Shant Sarkissian: This shop has respectable coffee. Sadly, the breakfast breads are sincerely awful. The bagels are flattened, right out of the refrigerator and hardened. And the croissant was far from “fluffy” and crusty, but instead bloated and again - hardened on the inside. Overpriced and underwhelming.

AL Brandes: Average coffee, but was the best iced caramel macchiato my daughter ever had (so she claimed). Sandwiches were great and the bubble tea drinks were good quality

Compass Coffee: what do users think?


Zubair Khan: The knowledge of the barista in charge was quite bad. Fact they do not serve pour-over coffee yet they charge close to 3 bucks for a drip version that is supposed to be lite roast but comes off as a Starbucks blonde roast profile. Add to this the coffee is piping hot. Shouldn’t be for a third wave coffee shop as such. Needless to say, may be good but personally wasn’t a fan.
Response: Hi Zubair, thanks for the feedback. I am sorry to hear that your experience wasn't great. We hope to stop by again so that we can provide an awesome experience for you!

Alex Ordonez: We just wanted coffee, and Compass Coffee really provided. Something I noticed right away is their menu stating that plant milks are always free. They have oat and almond available. They also had a vegan muffin. The coffee is a little bit on the expensive side, but nothing unheard of. When I paid for the coffee, I wasn't asked for a tip. I think(?) this might be why the coffee is a bit more expensive. If so, great; I prefer that! Anyways, we were happy with our coffee and muffin. The service was quick and friendly. Seating was good. The music wasn't too loud. Free WiFi is available. If I was being picky, then I would ask for more vegan food options. But I was happy with the option offered. We would definitely come again.

Ree A: Great coffee amazing atmosphere. Good place too go. If noise bothers you it's not a good place to work. It doesn't bother me so I love it!!! I have tried flat white and coffee cake there were great. The coffee is not very acidic and the roasts seem perfect!

Margaret Sisson: I really enjoyed my coffees and croissant. But most of all I enjoyed watching the baristas as they greeted everyone with a smile. It made my day watching them work and laugh together.

Alexander Chang: Got the matcha tea latte, they put vanilla in on default so if you like it more bitter like I do make sure to ask for it without. Very good, hot but not too hot when it hits the bar, and the caps and everything are by the front door, so don't go wandering around the bar like I did. Barely any powder at the bottom, well done. They don't advertise if they use the *ceremonial* stuff, but it definitely tastes the same!

Emily Smith: A must see in the Shaw area! Adorable little coffee shop with the sweetest baristas and great coffee selections. Awesome atmosphere and the cutest little free stickers. Nice view at the windows and great location for work or informal meetings. Check it out!!
Response: We are glad that you stopped by Emily! We hope to see you again soon :)

Greg Johnston: Noisy due to the coffee roasting operation going on there. On the plus side, you are definitely getting coffee made with freshly roasted beans! The cortado was very good, rich and smooth. The nitro cold brew came with ice which is not right... It's like putting ice in beer!!

Michael Waring: Best coffee roaster I've found in MVD. Up there with the best I've found anywhere. Also love that it's two former Marine Corps Infantry Officers (jarhead grunts) that did this. Well done gents.

Akula LA (Darkw1sh): Great coffee amazing atmosphere. Good place too go. If noise bothers you it's not a good place to work. It doesn't bother me so I love it!!! The Nitro cold brew is great, the espresso is great. The coffee is not very acidic and the roasts seem perfect!

Orion Novinger: Great coffee and tea and great atmosphere; the building was set up so you could view the coffee grinding and preparation process along with the packaging of the product for the sale in the building. Packed with college students but otherwise a warm atmosphere and inclusive staff.
