    The perfect place to kick-start my day, unwind with a book after work, or chat with friends. This is the closest you can get to a small town feeling in the DC area, simply beautiful.

    The earlier you come in, the better the pastry selection. Mon Thru Friday we are open at 6am and 7 am on the weekends.

    Perhap a good place to be seen in Del Ray, but not for coffee as Foursquare wrongly suggested based on my visit to Swings.

    Shout out to our Mayor Ann Marie P. Way to go. Come in with your ID and we'll treat you to a free coffee. Courtesy of Will.

    The "No Cellular Phones" signs are cute. I like the laid back atmosphere of the place. DC could use more coffee shops like this. Relaxed. Less corporate.

    Skip the muffins; I keep trying them, but there not that great. Otherwise great neighborhood coffee shop. I wish they'd get a better muffin supplier!

    The bakery case here with gluten and dairy-free muffins, brownies, cookies makes my (digestively troubled) world complete!

    Get the fantastic dirty chai. Don't ask for a coffee kozy as they don't believe in them; at least until some corporate entity gives them free ones.

    Funky spot. High end push bottom espresso maker. Not worth for the coffee, but vibe is good enough

    I ordered an iced coffee and the woman tried to give me decaf (I watched her pour from the pitcher labeled decaf). She didnt want to get more caf from the back until I insisted.

    Their “espresso” isn't espresso. It's just strong-ish coffee.
