    Chinatown Coffee just got a liquor license, & it’ll be serving $3 Lagunitas IPA & Dale’s Pale Ale to pair with Red Hook’s exquisitely buttery lobster rolls. Thursday, September 2 from 6:30 - 8:30 pm. Read more

    Slow down and enjoy a simple 8 oz. black cup of coffee for here (you aren't in that much of a hurry). This is the 1st shop in DC to carry Chicago's amazing Intelligentsia coffee.

    Only spot in DC I've found that seves cortado. Can't get it to go, though.

    I don't endorse coffeeshops easily. But I tried this place after seeing it on FS and it was a surprising find in the heart of Chinatown. Excellent espresso beverage. Now on my short list of cafes.

    Cortado is amazing.

    Steve G. · October 15, 2011
  • Darci L.

    One of the best lattes in DC. The sweetness of the espresso precludes the need to add sugar.

    Get an Ethiopian hand-pour. It's the best coffee drink they make.

    Enjoy a delicious cup of coffee and the best darn potato chips this side of the Mississippi at this neighborhood hangout. We recommend grabbing a seat at the front window for people watching.

    Nothing beats their homemade walnut, chocolate-chip cookies.

    Finally found a replacement for Blue Bottle's Gibraltar. It's the Cortado and it's delicious.

    Always check the guest espresso for a taste of Ritual, Counter Culture and more. A nice break from the Black Cat.

    Best damn baristas in D.C. are right here. Get a Black Cat espresso or whatever guest espresso is available. Purchase Intelly, Novo or Counter Culture for home brewing!

    Due to the Vince Gray signs in the window, I nearly skipped this place. I was pleased, though, to see that they have beer, wine, and absinthe.

    Love this place to sit and read/write on a Sunday. Can get crowded but most people seem willing to share tables.

    If (when) I own a coffee place, it will be like this: great coffee, fast wifi, good music, and craft beer.

    $2 espresso on Wednesdays.

    Backdropped by an exposed brick wall, hipster baristas will make any cup of joe you desire, be it drip, French press, or−if you’re not in a hurry−hand pour. Read more · July 1, 2013

    Chinatown Coffee Company is a wonderful "locals" hangout. Their baristas are top notch (Ian in particular) and they now have their liquor license and also serve 3 kinds of Absinthe! Seats go quickly!
