    This Arlington cafe is a great place to grab a cup of coffee, but it changes to a wine bar in the evenings. Come for the wifi, stay for the quiches or kale Caesar salad. Read more

    I love this coffee shop. Lines are always long though, even at 7–8am. But that is a sign of a place that is doing well! Just be prepared to wait if you order an espresso drink.

    Really great coffee. They use Counter Culture coffee beans, and their drinks taste exquisite as a result. Also, their latte art is cool. Can be difficult to find a table, as it is a busy place.

    Absolutely love this spot. The hummus sandwich and the quiche of the day are on point, and my friends can't stop talking about the red velvet cookie.

    Great wine spot but dont overlook the iced of the best I've had. Ask for Tammy at the upstairs wine bar and tell her you want to try some New York wine.

    Delicious coffee, but you MUST try their homemade cinnamon buns! Also, super dog friendly with plenty of outdoor seating!

    Great workspaces. Upstairs, main room, back room, outdoors - each has its own ambiance...choose what suits you. Upstairs now: 17 people, 15 open laptops.

    Try peach blossom white tea. Delicious. I love their breakfast. Each time I go there trying different dishes. So far my fav is smoked salmon poached egg sandwich 👍

    One of the best coffee spots in DC. Expect to wait but the care taken in the preparation and delivery make up for the wait. Don't miss the homemade pastries!

    DC-Area Coffee History Trivia: This space was once occupied by the second location of the now-defunct Murky Coffee, which was the first shop in the area to really take specialty coffee seriously.

    Espresso is one of the best I've had. Masala chai latte was delicious too. Spinach & poached egg and Avocado toast were good but nothing mind-blowing...

    One of the few places that does coffee right. Go for the latte and one of their freshly made baked goods (nutella pop tart? YES!). Decent beer choices as well.

    Seems like 9am is the magic hour on the weekends, try to arrive before. Echo the Carmel latte comments (even as a latte purist), and the spring chicken sandwich- delish but messy/hard to eat.

    Usually busy but worth the wait. My favorites are the caramel latte, Nutella pop tart, and spinach egg and cheese sandwich (which they serve until 3).

    Good coffee, but the baristas take a LONG time. Very hipstery. The salmon sandwich is to die for, though, and you can usually find a seat at a communal table.

    The brown rice and chickpea bowl is tremendous and huge. Really filling and, if you add bacon, all you need for dinner.

    Their regular filter coffee is really good. If the weather is good, sitting outside is a real treat.

    Internet connection sometimes bad. Enough bustle to keep you entertained w enough space if you want to be alone w your thoughts. Great coffee and food menu. Recommend quiches and potato salad.

    The spinach egg sandwich is possibly the best breakfast sandwich in the universe. Although I still don't know how to eat it without getting covered in egg yolk...

    Plan on driving a while looking for a space, and table space is a premium. Sunday is church day so plan your arrival time accordingly. Good food, good coffee!

    I'm reminded tonight of why I hate coming here to do work: it gets loud as shit. Particularly, the acoustics in the back room amplifies everyone's voice threefold. Great place otherwise.

    Great coffee -- which makes it one of the more consistently crowded coffee shops in the area.
