    If you can stay, or want a hot drink, I guess this would be the place to go. I asked for a "pour over ice" and was told that they don't do that. Why not?That's how a real 3rd wave coffee shop makes it

    Ethiopia Kyoto drip...good, but not excellent.

    Collin Chartier · August 13
  • Gabriel H.

    Has a good beer selection and has absinthe.

    Awesome coffee place. The best coffee place in Chinatown and the best coffee place I have been in DC.

    Iced latte on a hot day!

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

    Graham Fleming · July 1

    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+++

    Very cute place and nice people serving. Great coffee too

    Great service. Nice relaxing atmosphere for delving into a book and delicious coffee.

    Decent, but come on guys, take out the syphon on weekends. I think you can handle it.

    Place looks cool, great staff. Even serves alcohol.

    Miss this spot, almond milk lattes are made to perfection

  • Jonathan D.

    A top shelf purveyor of coffee and espresso.

    Jonathan Dagle · February 26
  • Frank F.

    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.

    Frank Fuhrmeister · February 22
  • Dan F.

    Great pull

    Dan Foy · February 20

    Cappuccino and chocolate biscotti 👍

    Proper coffee shop with tasty almond biscotti.

  • Alex S.

    Mocha all the way

    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.

    Good coffee for good prices! My favorite is their iced coffee

    Best coffee in Chinatown for sure, but such little cups!

    morgan finkelstein · December 30, 2014
  • Rohaina

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

    Rohaina · December 23, 2014
  • Ben D.

    One of the best spots in DC. Tons of seating, quality coffee, and free wifi.

    Ben Drucker · December 15, 2014
  • Alexandra S.

    Coffee is great, the lattes are better! Avoiding the bagels would be my only suggestion

    Alexandra Schmidt · December 14, 2014
  • Yera H.

    Lots of outlets to charge up!

    Staff is friendly...sometimes! The only thing I came here for was to buy black cat espresso.

    Mayalin Laforteza · November 22, 2014

    Satisfactory.not very comfortable

    Amy Elliott · November 13, 2014

    Tasty granola and yogurt but disappointing coffee, too hot and slightly burnt

    I chemex betta than this shit

    Solid coffee shop just a few blocks from the chinatown metro. Not a lot of seating.

    Tyler Hastings · October 21, 2014
  • Jess O.

    Mocha Monday = good deal on a super tasty mocha!

    Jess Owens · October 20, 2014

    Make sure your beard game is on point. Hand pour coffee is delicious.

    Brendan Brown · October 17, 2014
  • Brionne G.

    Coffee is rich and strong. The granola and yogurt cup is very good too.

    Brionne Griffin · September 20, 2014
  • Jonathan W.

    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.

    Jonathan Webber · September 10, 2014
  • Sonja H.

    The granola and yogurt is great here

    Sonja Hyltoft · September 2, 2014
  • Michael S.

    Love the coffees. They rotate frequently. Try a siphon brew if you haven't before!

    Iced coffee mochas

    Sonja Strongarm · August 17, 2014

    Great espresso, or take an extra minute and get a Guatemalan vacuum syphon

    Robbie Allan · August 16, 2014
  • Christopher L.

    The Soy Latte is fine, not much seating available. They do sell beer and liquor.

    Christopher Long · August 9, 2014
  • Cat C.

    Specially picked coffees can be made by french press, chemex or syphon methods. Definitely worth a try.

    Cat Cat · August 9, 2014
  • Kelsey H.

    Seating and outlets are scarce, but you can save money by ordering drinks to go.

    Kelsey Hayes · August 8, 2014
  • AFAR Media

    A bright, storefront with basic furniture and funky music where uber-friendly and efficient baristas serve up smooth, wonderful espressos as well as drip, French press, and hand pour coffees. Read more

    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.

    Luiz Centenaro · June 15, 2014
  • Elizabeth M.

    They use awesome cows milk but also have almond and soy options. Decent pastries and beans but no one seems to sell coffee by the lb anymore

    Elizabeth Mitchell · May 27, 2014
  • Hillary H.

    The granola/yogurt really is worth leaving a tip. It's very good! Full fat, creamy, and just the right sweetness.

    Hillary Hartley · April 30, 2014
  • Eric H.

    Cortado + homemade granola w/ local yogurt - perfect afternoon treat!

    Eric Hinman · April 25, 2014

    Don't rush yourself here
