    Their espresso drinks are solid. They also offer a coffee menu full of single-origin coffees, with prices ranging from cheap to more expensive. All coffees I have tried are good, though.

    One of the very few spots to grab a good cup of coffee. Espresso or brewed coffee, you can't go wrong here. Simple and to the point with great outdoor seating.

    May very well be the best cup of coffee in the city. It's a shame its so hard to get a seat with all the "laptop-campers". That's kind of par for the course with a lot of these places - MacBook envy.

    Baristas are awesome! They know what to do! Last time I had an espresso it was little bit watery. I need to try again. Dog friendly!

    Espresso drinks are expertly prepared, if you’re into that sort of thing, but I love the care they put into pour-over cups. Simple, ground to order, and painstakingly coaxed into the perfect cup.

    Cool coffee shop, just how I know it from Europe. Make sure you walk the extra 2 blocks past the Starbucks to Peregrine. It's worth it!

    The Lattes both iced and hot have a really unique flavour to them. I recommend them if you like lattes

    The pour over coffees are well worth the wait, and the mochas almond croissants are great too.

    Best coffee in Washington, DC. Order anything but an espresso (with water chaser) really illustrates their quality and care.

    Have a pour-over. Don't add milk or sugar, just try it by itself. I have switched to unadulterated coffee because of Peregrine.

    It's on 7TH St SE, not on Pennsylvania Ave at all. The Circulator stops on the corner at the Metro stop. This branch is better than the others.

    Their coffee is so good and fair-trade, it doesn’t just caffeinate you: it makes you a better person.

    Eastern Market's best coffee. If you plan to get some work done don't go in with high expectations as there is not much seating indoors.

    Their vanilla latte is good, but it's not the best I've had. I've got to give it to them for their latte art though!
