    Such a light, clean and open space! I got a pound of coffee ground to go as I was staying nearby. Delicious coffee and it came with a free small coffee. I look forward to going back!

    It has great espresso drinks, its open decent hours, there is plenty of space & lighting, and the music is at a decent volume. I couldn't ask for anything more from a good neighborhood coffee house!

    For a caffeine kick in the pants, sip on an Espresso Cola, an unholy combination of Mexican Coca-Cola and two shots of espresso. Another must-try: The Nutella mocha. Yes, Nutella. Read more

    Our favorite local coffee shop in DC! High-quality coffee and tea, great granola and free WiFi make for a perfect "office." Wifi password is "realgood"

    They have a great Lavender Earl Grey, a Jasmine Green, and a handful of herbal blends like Raspberry Rose Petal and Moroccan Mint that should satisfy most tea aficionados. Read more

    On a warm day, get a maple cold brew. On a chilly day, get a Nutella mocha. And pick up vegan baked goods from Sticky Fingers no matter what. Don't count on there being space to eat in, though.

    Worth the hype and the wait. The iced coffee on nitro is the smoothest I've ever had and their seasonal drinks, weird as they may sound, are spot on. Love the mint cold brew. Trust.

    It smells buttery and delicious in here! Biscuits were pretty good and the Nutella mocha was yummy. Glad to have Compass in the neighbourhood. AND they spelled my name right. Your move, Starbucks.

    Love this place! The staff is incredibly nice and real. Coffee is delicious and locally roasted. Wifi is free and beans are great for home brews.

    So much to like here. If you sit at the back, you can see some roasting operations in action. If you sit at the front, you can people watch the street.

    Their hot chocolate is light but surprisingly good , their coffee is a a bit strong to me , you will be surrounded by students and young professions doing their work😂

    Veteran owned, 30% police/fire/military discount. Oh, and the coffee's great too. Small amount of outdoor seating is a bonus.

    Great coffee, friendly and knowledgeable staff, and a great space. Also, the biscuits are to die for.

    Nice scene inside, good place to do work and/or hang out, but overall kind of a lackluster experience.

    All the coffee drinks are excellent. Nice cozy place to sip on a drink, catch up or get lost in thought.

    Regardless of all the construction going on 7th Street, this is THE best coffee shop in DC. Period.

    Really spacious. But if you're riding solo, grab a bar stool, not a table.

    Lots of space, good coffee (if a bit pricy) and a feel-good small business success story
