    Espresso drinks are, as they say, killer. Don't miss out on the fantastic cold brew. Say hi to Buddy, the shoppe's dog. Enjoy the Cali-inspired space.

    A macchiato is not a cortado, for the record, Killer ESP.

    Might be the coziest coffee shop in the DC area.

    Probably the best coffee on King St.

    Very cool hip coffee shop. The coffee and espresso can take a little while to make, but the worth, and sometimes a bit steep prices are largely worth it. The serve Stumptown, and it. is amazing.

    Salted Caramel and there is no X espresso! Try the Crazy F'ing Chocolate gelato and Dangerously Delicious pies.

    Chris Petracco · August 17, 2014

    This is where you get heavenly espresso drinks. My vote is a cappuccino or latte - keep it simple and do NOT add sugar or flavorings. Enjoy.

    Kyle Riggs · August 13, 2014

    Affogato. Definitely.

    Scott Loeb · August 9, 2014

    Order a tea and a slice of pie and sit at the bar. The baristas are always so friendly and willing to chat. Weekday nights are best to avoid the rush.

    White chocolate raspberry is good. This place is hip and modern, with a touch of rustic hipster.

    Alice Wang · August 9, 2014

    Espresso sorbetto and PIE!

    Best coffee shop in a 50 mile radius. Come after 5 on monday-Thursday and a big cup of tea (brewed on the spot) is $1.

    This place says they're open until 9:30 but when I got there at 9:20, their does were already closed & workers were cleaning up. I pleaded to the worker to let me in but she refused. Never coming back

    Great service, good happy hour deals on pastries and tea, awesome place! Loved the Almond Croissant and gelato! Definitely coming back soon!

    Note to people who are allergic to pets... They allow dogs+ indoors. As much as I love them, I don't want to sneeze my way through a work/study session. And the dog fights are distracting too.

    Grapefruit mint sorbetta is delicious

    This place is so hipster I just grew a beard. Try the Nutella banana things, ask for them to be warmed up.

    Skip all the other coffee shops and head straight here. Only coffee place worth it innokd town.

    I asked for a "Cappuccino" and got a "latte" instead... Asked the Barista for a Cappuccino and i was told i did not specified if i wanted a "Dry" cappuccino. Good coffee though.

    Back patio is great in warm weather. And the soy chai latte is phenomenal. Definitely coming back with a book or other leisurely reading material.

    Great drinks and food but when it is a single person who is taking orders, making drinks, serving food and cleaning up the line moves sooooooo slow. I don't get why this is a "thing" at coffee shops.

    Doug Wright · December 26, 2013
  • Lee D.

    You have to try a slice of savory pie!

    The Stumptown coffee keeps me coming back. Makes me feel like I've traveled to Portland for a good latte.

    If the waitress with the long bleached hair is working better get a guy to place your order. Her visual cortex is not configured to process female input.

    Lemon Coconut gelato is amazing!

    If you like peanut butter & chocolate in one dish, the peanut butter chess pie is ORGASMIC

    Free WiFi, really great artwork (always new, too!), amazing gelato (pomegranate basil... heaven), great espresso and food and some of the best people work here. My favorite place to chill in Old Town!
