    There's this pizza that has pesto, butternut squash, goat cheese & honey. Not too heavy, fills you up just enough. Weds is 50% off wine bottles, so grab a friend a split a bottle of bubbly for $8/ea.

    Mint tea and magic bar were perfect. The bar is a delicious combo of coconut, chocolate and peanut butter! Nice seating by the window on a beautiful day for reading and people watching.

    Just incredible. Love this place. Great vibe, the menu has so many amazing items, they serve counter culture coffee and the people are great. My new favorite place in DC, hands down.

    Tryst serves a cocoa blended with housemade syrup and topped with lavender flowers. Eaters can order this for $3.75, while fans of classic hot chocolate can order it for $3.25. Read more

    Great environment! Latte was really delicious and the food was good as well. Lots of comfy seating, free wifi, and patio as well. Definitely a spot you could bring a laptop and work for an hour or so!

    Hip as fuck, but yet to have a bad meal there. Kudos especially to the Thai chicken soup & butternut squash flatbread! Sandwiches and boozy drinks pretty reliable too.

    Open when you need it most. Great breakfast selection and pastries. Try the lebneh baguette. If you don't want to be alone go with your laptop (but no wifi during weekends, time to socialize!)

    If you've come to work, you need to buy something in the first 15 minutes of your visit. But the Internet access is reliable and it has a great atmosphere. One of my favorite places to work.

    If you need to "get some work done" this cool coffee house/bar is a nice place to relax and work on your laptop. Crowded in the afternoon, so bring a charged laptop so you won't need an outlet.

    The atmosphere is amazing and the internet is reliable. If you want your coffee in a paper cup though, you better mention that when you order or else you'll get a "proper" mug.

    Ask for the lavender hot chocolate with two shots of espresso. You get the delicious hot chocolate balanced with just enough caffeine to get your morning started.

    Monday night jazz - when John Lee makes a rare appearance - is sweet. If Tryst just hadn't jacked up their prices & cut portions by 1/3 then it just might have been the perfect chill spot.

    Good place for food, coffee and drinks but if you need wifi make sure to ask if they have it on. Sundays it isn't on until after 4pm and they often turn it off for random "holiday weekends".
