    Best coffee in Old Town Alexandria

    Great espresso and the chocolate crackle cookie was on point. Wish I could've sampled even more desserts/pies/empanadas, everything looked bomb! Plus lots of pups and babes around for great vibe.

    Generic coffee in US is a huge cup of coffee flavored water but it's not the case here. Herr you can try really delicious coffee. Forget about milky ones - try drip, pour over, cold brew or espresso!

    their iced green tea tastes a lot like water. I understand the pies aren't fresh but my chicken pot pie was warmed in a microwave (not even a toaster oven) and I could've done that at home

    This and Grape + Bean make King St. The place to be. One of a kind space, sometimes hard to find seating though and the cortado is really small. + They serve Dangerously Delicious Pies

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.
