    Can't go wrong with the yogurt and granola on an early morning.

    This place is the BEST. Their tea is good (and I'm a tea snob) but the coffee is just to die for. The guys work hard but still find the time to be super friendly! A+++

    Being that it's not too far out of the way of the metro, this is a highly-trafficked coffee stop for many. Don't expect to camp here with your MacBook and scone.

    They use Trickling Springs Creamery milk and the attention to detail shows. But, if you like authentic chai don't bother with their chai latte.

    Quality coffee. Worth stepping in and checking out their specials. Mochas and vanilla lattes are good. They also serve absinthe!

    Great coffee but very small location. Get their espresso, the barista will pull it just right. If you can find a seat, it's a cool place to hang out, but don't count on one being available.

    Need energy? Try the Ethiopian Hand Pour, if you are hungry the Paradiso; salted bacon with nutella and sliced strawberry on a brioche is dank. The wifi is overworked but atmosphere is worth it.
