CAFFEINE CRAVINGS IN THE CAPITAL
While Seattle's finest has certainly made a home in the district, Starbucks is not all the nation's capital has to offer if you are looking for a caffeine fix. In fact, the district is buzzing with independent roasters whose hip and funky decor contributes to their allure. With free wifi and comfortable seating, D.C. coffeeshops find themselves inundated with professionals looking to work in a relaxed environments and friends meeting up for a cup of joe. Here are some of our D.C favorites
- Tryst ~ 2459 18th St NW ~ this Adams Morgan institution's motto is "no corporate coffee. No matching silverware." With a full menu, bar, and open late, Tryst has it all.
- Compass Coffee ~ 1535 7th St NW ~ a relatively new Shaw establishment run by 2 ex-marines with a true passion, roasting their own coffee in house!
- The Wydown ~ 1924 14th St NW ~ the 2 brothers who started this U St coffee bar seek to serve simple, but delicious coffee. They are all about efficiency without compromising quality, and they're good at it!
