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.

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.

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

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

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

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.

Creative Grounds DC: what do users think?


Dondré: This venue is pretty cool. Great lighting and outdoor seating. This venue also has art for sale as well as some books. The service during my visit here was good. My hot tea was good but the iced matcha needs work. I feel as though the quality of the matcha is the baking kind and not the ceremonial grade. The baked goods were really good though. The banana bread and the blueberry muffin were fantastic.
Response: Dondre’ thanks for leaving your review. We value our customers opinion’s. See you soon, friend.

Kathryn Corselius: The Lavender Honey latte was absolutely delicious! It was the perfect balance of coffee with cream and syrups. This coffee shop would be a great place to catch up on work or visit with a friend. There was limited seating, but we were able to grab a seat during our visit.
Response: Kathryn thank you for taking the time to leave a review, and we are so happy to see that you enjoyed your LHL! Come back soon and as often as you like. :-)

Jennifer Rodriguez: I couldn’t have picked a better place to host my daughter’s 7th birthday party. I highly recommend Creative Grounds for a unique, fun experience for your art loving child. Asmara did an amazing job decorating (we were so surprised!) and made sure all the kids had fun and felt comfortable painting what they wanted or followed along with the activity. The adults were able to pop upstairs, get a coffee and catch up - a major bonus compared to most kid’s birthday parties. Thank you Creative Grounds for helping make my daughter’s birthday so special and memorable!
Response: Jennifer it was so nice getting to know you and your family. I am happy to see that everyone enjoyed themselves, especially your super talented and beautiful daughter. It's important that we meet kiddos where they are so it was our pleasure to cater to the specific needs of each child. Thank you so much for choosing us, happy to have you back anytime!

Alexander Riabov: An exceptional coffee shop with exceptional staff. The owner is one of the kindest people my wife and I have met. We hosted our wedding reception here and we loved everything from the space to the decorations. In addition, this is a DC family business so we are happy to support in anyway we can. Their coffee is also really good, a nice place to go for your morning boost.
Response: Alexander and Gabi, thank you for choosing us to host your wedding reception. We eagerly and enthusiastically look forward to hosting future events with and for you guys. Much love, new friends!

Kendall Box: Really nice experience. Solid coffee and kind staff. Space is bright and artistic. Would happily stop by whenever we're in the area.
Response: Kendall thank you for taking the time review our business. We would happily welcome you back any and every time you are in the area.

S. Z.: Finally made it to the coffee shop, and what a treat! I ordered a classic Americano with an almond danish. The place was beautifully layer out and had a chance to sit by the window and a set of books were being sold. It was a wonderful cafe, with great service. The staff were kind and offered to warm up the danish which was divine. Can’t wait to come back and try more of their drink specials.
Response: S.Z. thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We are super pleased to see that you enjoyed your drink and treat. The books offered by Bol, a worker owned cooperative is such a great addition to Creative Grounds DC. Can't wait to see you again.

Katie Beth Hicks: I was in the area so tried this (new-to-me) cafe. I did what most baristas hate and asked the barista what her favourite hot and cold drinks are. The results were delicious. Hot turmeric ginger latte had a great balance with a slightly stronger kick of ginger near the end. Like all tumeric lattes, it had sediment at the end, so I skipped the last sip. I got regular milk, but this probably would have been amazing with oat milk. Iced honey lavender latte. I was worried it was looking too milk heavy, but the barista used great ratios of milk and ice to compliment the syrups and espresso. It is sweet (with Barista noted when recommending). Would absolutely order again. Apple Pasty. Delicious. Definitely nest with a fork and knife. On the sweeter side, likely because I'm eating it following my honey lavender latte. Would be amazing with coffee.
Response: Thank you for taking the time to leave such a thorough review. We are so happy to see that you enjoyed your coffee and sweet treat!

stephanie wood: Love love love. Fantastic coffee and the service is wonderful. Friendly staff available to help you find the best drink to suit your mood or occasion. Cannot recommend more highly.

Maggie Furey: Good coffee and pastry. Loved the exhibit they had around letters to our bodies - very powerful. The kind of coffee shop I'd want to hang out at regularly if I lived here.
Response: Thank you for taking the time to review Creative Grounds DC. We are so happy to see that you had a great experience. Sarah Riley is the artist. You should definitely check her out. (Sarah Riley Ceramics) next time you’re in town please stop by!

Rachel B: I had an oat milk mocha and a chocolate chip muffin - both delicious. The staff were friendly. There’s a patio area with several well-spaced tables. This place welcomes dogs on the patio, and they give out milk bones so your dog can get a treat, too. My only complaint - as of early May 2021, they still are not allowing customers to use their own reusable mugs for pandemic reasons. The science has shown that surface transmission of the coronavirus is really not a threat. Let’s follow the science, get back to being environmentally friendly, and let folks bring in their own mugs.
Response: Happy to see that you enjoyed your mocha and muffin! And, thank you for sharing your concerns. We are trying our best to balance the safety and concerns of our staff and customers with our commitment to sustainability. Thank you for your patience.

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:)

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.

Lora Mitchell: On my many outings I stumbled upon the cutest coffee shop !!! I saw a couple outside with their dog and their beverages I became extremely curious!! And to my surprise the best matcha latte I’ve had in a while the quality of the match la was pretty awesome The avocado toast was really tasty as well the staff was friendly and very quick with service ! I’m not on this side often but will most certainly headed here on my next visit !!

Liviane U: The staff and atmosphere are always nice and I love the smoothies and sesame bagels. However I tend to avoid getting smoothies there because of the plastic cups, lids and straws. I really wish they would serve smoothies in reusable cups when sitting in. Everything else is perfect!

Anna Turo: Super cute place! The staff is really nice too, which makes even a great place like this even better. The matcha latte was delicious and not too sweet.

Nigel Gould-Davies: My favourite little cafe in DC. Even the house blend drip coffee is great. Try the matcha bowl, too , for a hearty breakfast. And a fine space inside and out, conducive to great thought.

Jakob Cansler: Food and coffee are just aight but the ambience is stellar. Love their little outdoor area which is quiet and shady without being muggy. Prices were good too. Will be back

George: Awesome organic cafe with great coffee, smoothies, fresh squeezed juice, wraps, salads, breakfast, and free WiFi. Nice, cozy area inside for doing work or great patio outside. Definitely visit. This place is a gem and the people are very nice. Don't believe the super sensitive reviews about bad customer service. Go here!

Joe Kawly: The place is a hidden gem. Quiet spot for making some work done. They need to add “Cortado” on their coffee list though. The Lavazza coffee is perfect but they add lots of milk to the “breve.”

Sinem Ozturk: Small cute place to get some healty foods & drinks, their breakfast item avocado brioche is amazing! but my fav is Acai Bowl, its more than enough for one person! Definetely I will come again!

Elissa Trieu: What a lovely little hole in the wall! I ran by this place the other day and had to stop. There's cute outdoor patio seating that's nestled in the alley. The brick layout, along with the lights give it a nice cozy, rustic vibe. The food and drinks taste great and are reasonably priced. Everyone is super friendly. Definitely recommend!

Dr. Jessi Wright: This place is a great little stop for a coffee, smoothie, or small bite to eat. The smoothies are large and delicious. They have pastries, bagels, açaí bowls, sandwiches, pretty much something for everyone. It’s small so sometimes the wait can be long but that’s because it’s a good local spot. (My one complaint is often I go in and there’s no line, but the employees are behind the counter doing something and don’t acknowledge you. You don’t know whether they know you’re there or not and you end up standing around for a while. I wish they would let you know they’ll be with you in a moment so you know you’ve been seen, instead of awkwardly standing around for so long. That’s a minor complaint though and def does not warrant less stars. It helps me practice patience so I’ll try and see it that way next time I’m waiting :)

Bluestone Lane Dupont Circle Coffee Shop: what do users think?


Phillip Palomino: DO NOT ORDER from this location. I usually order from the WestEnd location and while overpriced, the food is very good. It is a completely different experience with this location. The pictures of UberEats should have been a warning of the quality of the food, but I trusted the Bluestone name so I figured it would still be good. I was wrong. It looked like a five year old put this together in my kitchen. The food was cold, tasteless and, frankly, just pathetic in appearance. My girlfriend and I had to order from somewhere else because this was pure trash. Only order from the West End location. We will never be ordering from here again. This place should go out of business.
Response: Hi Phillip, My name is Abby, and I am part of the customer support team at Bluestone Lane. I am disappointed to hear about your recent experience and we have forwarded this to our operations team to be addressed. If you'd like to chat further please feel free to email me at greetings@bluestonelane.com Hope you're well, Abby

Stephen Boucher: I generally love bluestone lane as a touch of home but this has my only bad experience. Cold toast. Butter not applied when warm and supplied separately as a chilled block that could not be spread. No Vegemite which they didn't tell me when we ordered toast with Vegemite. Horrible banana toast. The entire place needs retaining.
Response: We are disappointed to hear about your experience and have passed this feedback on to our local and operations team. Feel free to email us at greetings@bluestonelane.com for further feedback.

Haroon: Visited a second branch in DC after trying this in Philly. Absolutely loved it. Their rainbow bowl and breakfast bowl is super delicious and healthy, you fell full yet satisfied that you've filled your stomach with something good. Staff are very helpful as well. The seating in this branch are a bit odd given there's just some seating. But overall highly recommended.
Response: Hi Haroon, We are so glad you have been loving both our Philly and DC locations! We hope to see you back again soon to enjoy another great bowl and coffee!! Cheers, The Bluestone Lane Team

Ido Simyoni: Excellent service, great coffee. Love bluestone lane even in DC.
Response: Hey mate – thanks for the review! We can’t wait to see you again. Thanks for being a local

Anh Ha: The staff at the Connecticut location has always been so incredibly friendly and helpful every time I visited. They always remember my name and order and the food is always prepared fresh and in a timely fashion. The physical environment is bright, clean and spacious with outdoor seating. I highly recommend you all support this business, especially during these hard economic times!

Peyton Doyle: Finally made it to this fab coffee shop. The iced chai was top notch and the avocado toast looked like it was made with 2+ avocados. Gorgeous space, kind employees and great food/drink.

K Mac: Nope. If you're looking for espresso go elsewhere.
Response: We are disappointed to hear about your experience and have passed this feedback on to our local and operations team. Feel free to email us at greetings@bluestonelane.com for further feedback.

Diana Milena Lopez Avila: Following my friend's suggestion, we came to Bluestone for coffee. I really liked it. I tried a Latte with almond milk and a goat cheese toast, the toast was really yummy.

dipika: Small but conveniently located Bluestone. Their beverage list is impressive but their ordering system is confusing. The outdoor seating just outside is comfortable and has strong WiFi which makes it a great place to work.
Response: Thanks so much for the review, Dipika! We are so glad to hear you enjoyed your visit and we hope to see you again soon.

Carlo Corazza: I visited this place today in the morning and I was very disappointed by the service. It took me quite a long to make the order, as there was only one clerk in the shop and he was too busy in preparing the orders and attending the customers. I ordered a simple espresso and waited more than 10 minutes without much success. When I approached the bar to ask for some explanations, the clerk responded rudely and said I just had to wait, as they were back up in their orders and they could not serve the customers quickly. I replied stressing that I had been waiting for long time and that such wait was well beyond the normal. The additional reply continued to be rude and I left the store without taking my coffee. Final point, the clerk with whom I interacted and one of his colleagues who was working in the kitchen were both not wearing the mask properly, as they were leaving the nose above the line of the mask. This is clearly a violation of the legislation and a serious threat to customers' health. Certainly not a place I would recommend.
Response: Hi Carlo, 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. If you'd like to chat further, please feel free to email me at greetings@bluestonelane.com Cheers, Curt

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!

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!

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.

Coffee Nature: what do users think?


Bryan Levi: Hands down the best espresso milk drinks in the area. Lattes, cortados, all excellent. Perfectly silky steamed milk and delicious espresso. Breakfast items are also excellent. Espresso nerds will appreciate the turquoise blue Slayer.

Kayla Hyland: A a cozy space with a good amount of seeing room. They have a decent selection of drinks and many teas on offer. I was able to set up shop with my laptop and get some work done for a while. They have food that smells good, but I didn't try any. Edit: I did go back and get a sausage egg and cheese bagel. The quality of the sausage was just ok, but over all it was worth while and I enjoyed the treat. I wish they were open on Sundays. An additional note: on a cold day the inside gets cold, too, due to the small space and the constant flow of people. So wear a sweater!

Clinton W Spence: Nice variety of breads for delicious breakfast and lunchtime sandwiches, specialty coffees and teas, a small selection of pastries—in a cozy, classic coffee shop or on a pleasant patio. Enjoy this independent shop just off WI Avenue between Tenleytown & Frienship Heights.

desbjet600kl: A great place to have a cup of coffee from Seattle roastery. They have a delicious sandwiches and pastry.

young kim: This is the cutest little coffee shop! Really cozy and welcoming atmosphere to enjoy some coffee and cookies.. their Nutella latte and matcha & red velvet cookies are the best! If I lived closer, I’d come here all the time!!

Timor El-Dardiry: We’ve been regulars for the past two years and this place just keeps getting better. Excellent sandwiches, perfect espressos, and super service. This is a true gem for the neighborhood.

Gabriel Fineman: The coffee is very good and the breakfast sandwiches (I tried most of them) are freshly made to order, a cut above anything else in the area, on excellent bread, generous in size and a good value. Has large outdoor seating area.

Joaquin Muñoz: Great menu, and super tasty espresso! And the art on the wall was super Cool! Big props to whoever had the little TV running showing the World Cup:)

Sawyer Moseley: The bulgogi beef breakfast sandwich was nothing short of incredible, friendly customer service and delicious coffee.

Wayne Clark: I really like the rearrangement of chairs and tables inside the cafe. It is now so much easier to order and wait for your drinks and food. The creama on the cappuccinos isn't quite like that of the previous owners but is getting close.

ThreeFifty Bakery and Coffee Bar: what do users think?


Jessa L: Not sure I can begin to describe the deliciousness of this Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffin. It is decadent yet light & fluffy. Perfect blend of spices, not overly sweet and incredibly moist. Omg DREAM MUFFIN!!! Goes perfectly with coffee. I hope there will be seating there soon? Would happily pop in to try more items 🤤🤤
Response: Jessa, there's no better way to start your day than with a pumpkin and cream cheese muffin! Our team is here to make sure you get the sweet treat you've been craving. We can't wait to see you again soon. -Michael G., Owner

Rebecca C: The best scones! Very reasonable priced coffee and food. Swing through earlier in the day if possible because they sell out of options as the day goes on. Highly recommend stopping in! No indoor seating.
Response: Rebecca, starting your fay with a coffee and a fresh scone is always the best idea! We can't wait to see you again soon. -Michael G., Owner

Marbin Gonzalez: I got lucky with parking lapped around the block once and found a spot right in front. Located just off u st a quiant little place. Right away you see all the pastries just laid out in front. Seems very busy and they keep reloading pastries. I enjoyed the orange scone a lot and want to try some more stuff.
Response: Marbin, we're so glad that you were able to find a parking spot and came in to see what we have to offer! Our scones are always freshly baked throughout the day, so you can count on it being flavorful. We can't wait to see you again soon for a chance to try something new. -Michael G., Owner

Benjamin W.: Building itself is a bit dated and could use some of work but there's only so much that can be done about that. It seems like a very new startup kind of place. Coffee is good, baked items are quite good (see quiche). I'd go back just for the food actually. This place fits the neighborhood vibe, chill and off the main roads. Glad I walked the extra 3 blocks from the Starbucks.
Response: Benjamin, our team is always here to welcome you in for a fresh cup of coffee and a Quiché to get your day going! We can't wait to see you again soon for another delicious treat. -Michael G., Owner

David Gershman: My go-to! ThreeFifty boasts such warm and lovely staff. I am always happy inside of ThreeFifty. My three favorites: butter crossiant, blueberry scone, and bacon cheddar scone. The staff treat their customers very softly and it’s always a welcoming experience. Nothing better these days than heartwarming exchanges that may last a whole second but stick with you in your heart forever.
Response: David, there's nothing better than getting your day started with a butter croissant or a scone! We can't wait to see you again soon for another sweet treat. -Michael G., Owner

Jakob Cansler: My iced coffee and quiche were both disappointing but not bad. Also would have loved to enjoy the patio on such a nice day but it was literally just some plastic benches.
Response: Jakob, our team is here to make sure you get the freshest coffee around to get your morning started! Please let us know how we can make your next experience 5 stars! We are working on upgrading our patio and currently building custom wooden tables. We can't wait to see you again soon for another great time. -Michael G., Owner

Andrew Sanders: What a great little coffee and bake shop! This place exudes warmth and coziness - but it’s not so cozy that you can’t get work done because you’re falling asleep. The space is small and the seating is limited - 4 spots on the bar at the window, maybe another 6 at the bar along the wall, and a couple small tables. For this reason, a sign on the wall asks that you only stay and use WiFi for 1 hour. Even so, great place!
Response: We're happy to be a cozy spot for you, Andrew! I'm glad you've enjoyed visiting us for some coffee and treats, and we'll be looking forward to having you back for more. See you next time! -Michael G., Owner

Michael Philip: I’ve been coming to this place since a few months ago and I think I owe the staff and management and 5 star review. Great coffee (iced mocha!) with various non-dairy selections (yay Oatmilk), and treats I’ve never seen elsewhere in the area. I’d recommend their banana bread and gluten-free oatmeal peanut butter chocolate cookie. Sometimes the place gets packed as it can only seat around 13-15 people inside but I don’t mind at all. There’s outdoor patio seating and that gets packed too, and that says a lot how the amazing the service, food, and atmosphere is at 350. I’m a block away and I’ll frequent this place for as much as I can. 🙂
Response: Michael, we appreciate you taking the time to leave a review! We're thrilled that you always enjoy stopping by for an iced mocha and some banana bread. Can't wait to see you again soon! -Michael G., Owner

Pepe C: Some of the best pastries in town and good coffee. I loved the outdoor space that since COVID they kept closed. The quiches are also top notch.
Response: Pepe, getting your day started with a pastry and a fresh coffee is always a great idea! We can't wait to see you again soon for another tasty treat. -Michael G., Owner

Martha Wilson: Very good baked goods (quiche is especially good) and Illy coffee. Lovely staff and (local) owners. Since the pandemic, this neighborhood spot has lost its serene indoor atmosphere and its charming, outdoor café space – through no fault of its own. I hope it returns to its former glory, as a welcome retreat for locals.
Response: Martha, a fresh cup of coffee and Quiché is the best way to start your morning! We can't wait to welcome you back to our counter for the charming service you know and love. -Michael G., Owner

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.

Swing's Coffee: what do users think?


MELISSA LYTTLE: In the land of corporate coffee aka Starbuck’s, Peet’s and Compass, Swing’s is a much/needed respite. It’s a legit coffee bar about a block from the White House with baristas that know how to pull a proper shot and make a great pour over.

A G: One of the best coffees I've had! Very smooth not bitter, just the way I like it.

Michael Peters: Swings is back at its original location. The coffee is still the best in the US apart from Little Collins in NYC. Complementary sparkling water to go with your espresso, cannot be faulted. The lattes are exquisite, the milk never over heated, and the coffee just perfectly roasted. Renovated and still awesome. The other location on the other side of the White House which was opened to fill the gap while this one was being renovated is also excellent.

Phillip P.: Great coffee shop that is a strong local alternative to Peet’s and Starbucks. They offer espresso, macchiato, cortado, cappuccino, flat white, Americano, lattes, mochas, drip and pour over coffee, nitro black and latte options, hot and iced tea, various pastries and biscotti cookies. Coffee is also sold by pound. Limited t-shirts, Chemex products.

Austin Graff: Swing Coffee Roasters is a roastery outside of DC in Alexandria, Virginia and this was their first DC coffee shop in the city. It's one of the closest coffee shops near the White House and Renwick Gallery and recently reopened from renovations. It's a small shop, but they do a good job of squeezing in enough seating for everyone. They have window seats and small high tables that can sit two people. It's a simply, classy atmosphere with tiles, lights, and a wooden ladder emerging from the seating area into...well...no where. It seems random, but then you realize it hits their overall vibe. The coffee itself is good, rich, and smooth. Their latte is one of the best in downtown DC.

Chris Thompson: Definitely one of the best I’ve had in the city. Friendly excellent coffee

Kevin Kampschroer: Best coffee in the neighborhood; careful with special requests; friendly.

Karen Silva: They roast their own coffee :) highly recommended!

Caroline Terlecki: Fresh made to order mocha. Perfect balance of chocolate and coffee and they even did the milk foam heart on the top. Exactly what I needed. So delicious!!💚

Paul Blake: Best coffee in the area. Just wish it was open a bit earlier, especially as folks start returning to office.
