The Coffee Bar: what do users think?


Muniba Khan: The coffee was pretty decent, but the service and friendliness of the staff was stellar. I got a London fog and it was delicious, but in the future I would probably ask for a shot of espresso since the flavor was really light. I will say that a lot of reviews here mentioning wifi aren't accurate anymore- it seems that they aren't offering wifi anymore due to COVID. Which I respect but wish I knew prior to stopping by.

LP: Cute space with a great dirty dirty chai and coffee selection with assorted local baked goods. There’s some great in and outdoor seating to stay a while.
Response: 🙌🙌

byron subero: A nice little coffee spot in DC. Great service and delicious blend for their house blend.

Dylan Roche: This is a great coffee shop in Shaw. Good drinks, friendly staff, decent prices, and a nice big patio out front. The only downside (and this is subjective) they do not offer wifi, which is interesting during the weekday because everyone seems to come here to work outside on the patio. But overall ten out of ten, this is a great spot to have in the neighborhood.
Response: Thank you! 🙌

Hannah Mirviss: Love supporting the local coffee shop. Drinks are great, staff is very nice. A few small outdoor tables but nothing inside. Matcha is not great and the one pastry I’ve had was nothing to write home about. But coffee, vibe, staff, location great!!
Response: 🙌 🙌

Susanna Mostaghim: Cute spot, reasonable prices. I don’t like that there’s only one bathroom as someone was in there for like 20min. While that’s not their fault could be better planned.

Laura Schlesinger: Great coffee and pastries, very friendly staff! Most of the seating is outdoors.
Response: Thank you! 🙌

Bruner Burner: Great neighborhood coffee spot.Not ideal for work requiring internet, as there is no Wi-Fi.
Response: Thanks for the review!

Rich A: Local coffee is always better than chain coffee. While the place was very busy during my visit, the staff was super friendly. Did not have some of the traditional flavors for latte but that did force me to try something new so I tried the cardamon latte; I'd recommend it for something new. Not a lot of room to sit inside and parking in the street is not the easiest thing to find. If you don't mind the parking struggle (at least on this particular Saturday morning) then you should visit.

Hillary Marshall: After brunch one Sunday my boyfriend and I didn't want to head home just yet and decided to look for a legit coffee shop near U St. We found this one on Yelp with good reviews. It did not disappoint! We love cappuccino and theirs was fantastic. Very smooth and just the right amount of foam. We will seek this shop out again when we come into the city. The atmosphere was lovely and relaxed and we sat in the big bay window right in front. It was quite busy and popular on a Sunday afternoon so be ready to stand in line and grab your seat!

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.

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

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!

Brew'd Coffee Bar: what do users think?


Justin Schmid: My coffee this morning. I ordered a cappuccino and this is what came out. It's at least double the size of a proper cap. But I noticed that the foam looked great (barely any bubbles) and a bit of latte art. It actually tasted good and was the right temperature. So it was a tasty espresso drink, if not what I'd consider a cappuccino. The baristas were very nice, too, which always helps. Next time, I'll try a cortado.

Ido Simyoni: I really liked the coffee and I thought it was a cute spot too. I got lavender oat milk latte.Service wasn’t great nor friendly.

Rachel: A great spot to enjoy the sunshine and a delicious iced latte on a warm summer day! I tried their pistachio rose latte and am so glad I did - what a unique blend of flavors. Indoor atmosphere is beautiful but indoor seating is pretty much non-existent. We really enjoyed sitting outside though — there were several tables, large umbrellas for shade and well-landscaped planters for ambiance. This is one of the best coffee shop patios I’ve found since moving to DC. Their wifi did not work outside though - given the paucity of indoor seating perhaps they could consider getting a wifi extender. However, there was Xfinity wifi available in this neighborhood so I was able to get connected to that instead.

Leezia Dhalla: Ordered a large latte this morning & basically got a cup of steamed milk; I think they forgot to double the coffee because of the size. Not worth the $5 but staff was nice

Jack Connolly: I was deceived by the photos of this place. It looked like a spot where the drinks would be amazing, however the espresso was lackluster and not pulled well. The barista wasn’t to be seen when I walked in. When the barista came after 1-2 minutes, she had an attitude of apathy and disappointment- as if I was an inconvenience. Maybe she’s having a bad day so I take that with a grain of salt. Overall, the aesthetics are nice, but the drink I had was not. Would not recommend.

Mario Sengco: This is my favorite coffee place in the area. For my taste, they make the best drip coffee and latte drinks. Great flavor, consistent quality, and friendly service.

M Ramachandran: Amazing! The barrista on Sat afternoon was so wonderful and welcoming. And she made the perfect espresso shot. Great patio and vibe as well.

James Ives: Really solid coffee spot in Mount Vernon Triangle which offers outdoor seating. Went here on a Saturday morning and tried their Latte, Focaccia and croissant. Everything tasted good and the coffee shop it’s self was vibrant with a good atmosphere. The only negative I took away from my experience was that they didn’t offer recycling for the cups they provided.
Response: James, I'm so glad you had a good time here a few weeks ago! We ARE looking into recycling options and hope you'll come back and see us again soon! At your service, Nick

Sam Clark: Terrible experience. The latte had less than a shot of espresso added. Additionally, the cup cracked because the lids are extremely difficult to put on the cups. The two baristas on staff then stood and watched as I struggled to keep the drink from pouring out the cracked cup without offering any assistance. As I was the only customer in the shop at the time I find that unacceptable. After several minutes watching me struggle they finally offered to give me a new cup. No replacement drink or apology was offered. I do not recommend this place.
Response: Sam, I want to sincerely apologize for your experience here last week. The quality and service you received are in no way emblematic of what we aspire to be. When you have a moment would you contact me at nlongobardi@altamareagroup.com so that I might make up for your experience? Again, I am so sorry, and I look forward to hearing from you. At your service, Nick

Austin Graff: Brew'd Coffee Bar is the newest coffee shop in Mt. Vernon Square by the Capital View hostel and another coffee shop, Chez Lily. Here's what's to love: 1) Outdoor seating: There's oddly no seats inside, but there are plenty outside. That translates- only go when it's not raining outside. 2) Service: My barista was very friendly and fun to chat with. 3) Coffee: It's good. They brew La Colombe. The odd thing is the layout. You walk in and step down a few stairs to order your coffee or grab-n-go food. The coffee area takes up most of the space and looks like a space ship.
Response: Austin, Thanks so much for checking us out! Glad you had a good experience and we hope to see you again soon! At your service, Nick

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

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.

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.

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…)

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.

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.

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

Dolcezza Gelato and Coffee: what do users think?


Fatima D: This might be good for gelato but I was really disappointed with their coffee and pastry selection. Super small space too it's uncomfortable to sit there. The music was loud in the morning. The staff were super nice though. Just beware that like many. places in DC, they require you to show your vaccination card before you sit inside, otherwise you could order takeout.

Peter Ferguson: I love stopping by Dolcezza. I don't get there every day but when I am in Dupont I stop by. The pastries and coffee are great. The location is ideal if you are heading into the city from Maryland. Also it has Wifi so if you need to stop in for a coffee and do a little work, you are covered.

Emma Jeanie Beanie: The staff are very friendly and helpful in making a decision between all the delicious flavors. I got hazelnut crackle and Swiss chocolate, and enjoyed both immensely. Also, their chai latte is one of the best I’ve ever had! Even though it’s a small shop, there are a few cute places to sit and the atmosphere is very cozy. Will definitely return on our next dc visit!

Sassy Sauce: Nice place but the parking in this area is bad. There is a farmers market every weekend between the metro and this store. A lot of people are in the area to have lunch and shop and it’s difficult to find parking. Also, the gelato is good. There are a few different ones in the city and all of the locations are consistently good. The normal flavors you would expect. Sometimes during the cherry blossom festival there is a special flavor offered. When we went, there a small line but it moved quickly. The flavors are great and the texture is smooth. Always satisfied with my choice.

Arash Tavakoli: We ordered Latte and hot chocolate. Very nice place, welcoming barista, and much less sugar in their drinks which I absolutely loved!

Victoria Quiroga: Nice! The matcha latte was great. No vegan /dairy free sweets though :(

Iris Tan: Recommended by a friend and when we came here we realized that we have been purchased this brand for a long time .. great to get a chance to eat gelato out of fresh lol

sia shetkar: The berries and marscapone gelato makes me wish I lived in DC. Such a cute little shop, and the staff were so nice when I was deciding on flavors. Would recommend!

Timothy Chambers: The gelato was AMAZING- the best I’ve had anywhere. So tasty, smooth, and a terrific span of flavors. The dark chocolate was rich. Loved the Dulce de Leche- my new fave. We enjoyed the service with a smile, the charming atmosphere, and my wife’s cappuccino was really good, too. We’ll be back. :)

Miguel Curiel: Best gelato I’ve tasted in DC thus far. Plus, it is in a vibrant and youthful area so you can easily pass by after eating in any of the multiples nearby restaurants.

Bettina Tranquille: So cute. Nice interior and food authentically looks and IS delicious. View menu and order through your phone, which I think is cool. The menu was kinda glitch but it didn't stop us from ordering and receiving our food. Table was kinda small but all the food we ordered fit. AND host/waiter pronouns are very visible which I LOVED with very warm service.. Will definitely be coming back for breakfast again.
Response: Thanks so much for the review, Bettina! We are so glad to hear you enjoyed your visit and we hope to see you again soon.

Chukwudi Osondu: Upon arrival they ask for proof of vaccination and I.D. They then proceeded to seat us very quickly. Our waitress was extremely efficient and brought us our water immediately. The food we ordered was delicious and perfectly seasoned and the drinks were great too! We ordered the Soft Chili Scramble W/ Avocado, Lemon Ricotta Pancakes (D,E,S,G) , and Brekkie Board (D, N, S, SE, G, E). Drinks were the Aussie latte and the iced chai tea. Portions were small, but definitely satisfying. Would definitely come back! Price range for each drink: $4-$7. Price range for each food item: $14-$19.
Response: Thanks so much for the review, Chukwudi! We are so glad to hear you enjoyed your visit and we hope to see you again soon!

Rita Jones: A chill spot for coffee with excellent staff! We were serviced by Nora and Khalil, both extremely patient and knowledgeable. Customer service at its friendliest! And quality coffee served! My party got Affagatos (a rare treat; real coffee lovers know what I am talking about) and wellness drinks of Matcha Latte and Golden Latte.... Pro tip get the matcha drink with lemonade. Bomb.com!
Response: Hey mate – thanks for the review! We can’t wait to see you again. Thanks for being a local!

Alexandra Yeager: this place youse to be great, but today I paid $20 for this club and there is barely any chicken I it. The second slice had even less. Also these are not the duck fries they say on their menu. Never again.
Response: Hi Alexandra, My name is Curt, and I am part of the customer support team at Bluestone Lane. I am disappointed to hear about your recent visit and we have passed this onto our operations team to address.

Ray Rizzo: Bluestone is great! They have a fantastic array of brunch options. Highly recommend the Best Mate’s bowl. 10/10 would recommend!
Response: Hey Ray – we love the Best Mate’s bowl too! Thanks for the review and for being a Bluestone local.

Erica J: Came here for a different scenery than my home office to work. The person greeting us was nice and warm and offered up the only available table near a outlet which so happened to be next to the host booth and takeout pickup. Asked for other locations with a outlet preferably indoors and their was one near the bookcase in the back in the whole space. Sat and worked in this high traffic area for the afternoon with my headphones. Was encouraged to download the app to order and selected a chicken sandwich. This place is on the pricer side but everything looked good on the menu. My meal was delivered to my table - no problem. The chicken sandwich was tasty and light. The server was warm and refilled my water periodically. Nice cafe vibe for a meet up, quick bite and light work if needed.
Response: Hey mate – thanks for the review! We can’t wait to see you again. Thanks for being a local

Claire F: Usual amazing Bluestone coffee, great food for any sized appetite (vegan options available) and such wonderful service. I have to give a special shout out to the several members of staff who were so kind and accommodating to our party with multiple little kids and a huge stroller. Without hesitation, we were helped settle in and park the stroller and they didn’t mind when we had late-comers — all around pro service staff — making us feel really welcomed. Thank you!
Response: Hey mate – thanks for the review! We can’t wait to see you again. Thanks for being a local!

Brian: Not the cheapest place for breakfast, but the quality is worth the price. Soft scrambled chili eggs were delicious; chocolate croissant fresh and crisp.
Response: Thanks so much for the review, Brian! We are so glad to hear you enjoyed the soft scrambled chili eggs and chocolate croissant. We hope to see you again soon!

Babak Parkhideh: Good coffee. Plated breakfast menu only. Roughly costs you ~20/person. I enjoyed.
Response: Thanks so much for the review, Babak! We are so glad to hear you enjoyed your visit and we hope to see you again soon.

Emily Balyeat: Pros: Beautiful European Cafe feel with lovely outdoor seating. Coffee always wakes me up. I also tried the spiked cold brew most recently and it was amazing!Cona: The costs. Food prices are high. For the coffee being higher than average prices the flat white seems miniature sized compared to other places I get them.

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.

Tryst: what do users think?


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:)

Zeke's Coffee of DC - Downtown: what do users think?


Ido Simyoni: Cute coffeeshop with hipster vibes. Coffee was great. I got lavender oat milk latte and it was good.

Suzana Kedron: Nice tucked away coffee shop. Excellent service and likewise excellent coffee.

Sam Buck: The coffee at Zeke's may be the best coffee I've ever had! We each got a coffee that was absolutely out of this world. The iced mocha tasted like dessert, and my wife's iced americano tasted fresh and quality. There is some limited outside and inside seating, but Zeke's atmosphere is modern and inviting.

Kelly Peck: Great little shop, best latte I’ve had in a while and my girlfriend loved her black coffee. Friendly staff and and good atmosphere. Great stop before hitting the monuments.

Elyse Horvath: Great little coffee place tasty coffee and a nice clean bathroom! it’s definitely small but worth your while you can also buy bags of there coffee and other zekes coffee merch you may want from shirts and cups to stickers never underestimate the power of a good local coffee and a clean bathroom especially that later being in a city and all

vignesh s: Best coffee I have had in recent times!!Try out their honey lavender coffee!

Noah Ifergan: Great spot! Good coffee. Not a lot of workspace though.

Christopher Ramnarine: This is some great lattes! I wish I could have gone into the store but what they have is an outdoor setup and you have to order online and they will being it out to you. i ordered a caramel latte with oat milk and it was delicious one of the more flavorful lattes I've had in a while.

Tracy Bonay: Very good coffee. Got an “Iced Dirty Chai”My daughter got a hot Americano with simple syrup.Everything all natural here.

jeffrey nester: Zekes has freshly roasted coffee beans. I enjoyed the Ethiopian beans.

Qualia Coffee: what do users think?


Mischa: This is a laid back and multi-level coffee shop with a lot to offer from good coffee to alcoholic beverages to food, etc. It is also very comfortable here and I love their decor.

Vincent Marcopoli: Outstanding quality coffee. I had a pour over that was just wonderful. The Ethiopian beans had all the fruity character I love about that origin. The blueberry muffin was a perfect compliment. The service was great - the barista was very personable and helpful while serving multiple customers! Kudos to Quality Coffee!! I'll be back!

leo v: This place brought delicious microroasted microbatch beans and coffee to Petworth years ago when the old terrible Safeway (known as Stinky) stood where the current very nice one, with a mini Starbucks stands. Qualia was instantly my favorite coffee spot in DC and 13 years later, it still is. I remember asking the owner back in the day if he was concerned about the Starbucks coming when the Safeway was being built...he said he wasn't since they couldn't compete with his beans as far as quality. He's still here and has expanded to Eckington. There are big operators like Philz that have made their way to DC, and if I happen to be there...cool, but I'll go out of my way to patronize Qualia. The owner Joel is a really nice guy, who has always acted like a member of the community, not someone just here to make a buck. Feel good about giving this neighborhood fixture your business...and get amazing coffee in return!

Scott Cornelius: Kind of confusing to get into at the moment, the coffee shop is located next door inside Commonwealth. That said, the coffee was good, and Commonwealth makes a good burrito!

Eric Noriega: Great coffee in a neighborhood joint. Because of the pandemic they kind of moved next door into a space shared with another restaurant. Still great service and still great coffee. It's important to keep in mind that they roast their own coffees , so even the pour overs are excellent . ☕😎👍

Divina Pippin: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! The breakfast we had was really good and very tasty. The espresso was even better, the best coffee in the area. I also love the decaf it was one of the best I’ve ever tasted. The barista is very good at making different toppings. The staff is very friendly. And also the strawberry topped cake is really delicious.

justabugDownUnder: Loved the coffee I had here. Reminds me of home down-under. People should come to this kind of cafes more often, rather than go to Starbucks and stuff. Local cafes should thrive rather than let the big guns take over. That’s why Starbucks never really made it in Australia except where there are tourists. Just bring your own power banks when you travel! Why four stars? The staff are very “official”.

Gold Mountain Coffee Growers: They source from ethical coffee farms and have amazingly fresh coffee, without pretense. What a wonderful DC business!

วรรณกานต์ พรมกลาง: Just stop by to get my ice brown sugars escapeso oat milk, nice services ☺️will be beck. Cool place & cool people there.

Sahra Sakha: Today I had an espresso which was very sour and tasted like acid which could be the result of under extraction (there could be several reasons for this, low water temperature, coarse grind etc..). I guess if you drink your coffee with sugar and milk, you will not notice it much but as a coffee purist who lived in South Europe for more than a decade where a perfect espresso is to be found at every corner, this was disappointing. The location is charming though, brings a nice vibe to the neighborhood and the baristas are friendly. Given this, I am happy to try again their espresso again, and hopefully have a pleasant surprise!
Response: Glad to hear you will give us another try. Espresso is hard and even the best barista can't get it right 100% of the time. If you are ever disappointed with a drink, we will be happy to remake it or replace it.

The Coffee Bar: what do users think?


Mo Stych: Really bright, friendly coffee shop with fun specialty drinks. We were hoping for the cardamom latte (on a recommendation from a friend) but they weren’t serving it anymore. Bummer! However, the turmeric latte was delicious. The staff is super welcoming and fun, making us feel comfortable from the very start. Good tunes and a farmhouse chic decor. Worth a visit if you need a caffeine fix!

Melvin Johnson: I really enjoyed this coffee bar. It’s fairly trendy/bohemian on the inside. Love the atmosphere and they give you the option of Single Origin Espresso in your beverage. Highly recommend.

Jessica Day: Coffee and the patries were delicious. I wish there was more and comfortable seating. The place is good for someone coming and going. But for us who are tourists and wanted to sit and enjoy our time. This wasn't the place.

Hila Fogel-Yaari: Wonderful service and cardoman hot cider. I love that the cider came with a piece of toffee.
Response: Glad you enjoyed! Thanks for the feedback 😊

Kristen McNicholas: The mocha is delicious, they let you bring your own mug and though its a little pricey, the quality and customer service make it worth it!

Will Koehrsen: A typical over-priced corner coffee store. The staff are friendly and the coffee (at least the lattes) are very good, but you pay a hefty price. A good choice if your fine spending $5+ on a cup of coffee, but not a great value. There is limited seated inside, and when I went (late afternoon) all the seats were occupied.

Hagai M: Coffee is good, service is great, great design, great vibe, but the line, though moving fast, could be challenging... one personal wish would be better pastries. The stock products on display are definitely not 'best in show', though would do for a grab and go. Second personal wish would be just a bit more shade. The big glass windows are beautiful, but with a sunny day can be quite challenging to most skins.

Vishal Sinha: This is most definitely my go to place for some good (upscale) pour over coffee (and other treats). The store has been popular and busy since they opened a few months back and have managed to offer the same level of service and coffee since the start. They offer a small number of coffee options that are all very good! They do offer coffee from Onyx Coffee from Fayetteville, Arkansas - one of my favorite coffee roasters. Their pour overs are made well with consistently and I even like their cold brew :) Staff is friendly and always ready to recommend a drink if needed. A good addition to the busy coffee scene in DC

Michael Tofte: Absolutely love this coffee shop. The clarity of the pour over is up there with some of my favourite coffee shops across the states. There's not a lot of seating, so, if it is busy, don't expect a lot of study room. However, the staff is incredibly fast, efficient, kind, and quality. Bonus points for the boldness to play a boy band station on one visit to hit my guilty pleasure fix.

Vlad Korobov: Nice barista. Tiffany colors. Stylish. Not a lot of space, very popular during the day. Did not find wifi here
