The place is an icon in Adams Morgan and beerwise offers a short but nice and well maintained selection.

It´s a coffee, bar with very relaxed atmosphere, no rushes or time limits with a mix of students with their laptops, informal work meetings, drinks and what is probably the best coffee in town.

They typically have 6 taps, with 5 or so dedicated to craft selections, and a small but for the most part also quality bottle selection. In addition they offer a full bar, and a food menu with sandwiches, salads, and a nice cake selection. Reliable wifi during the weekdays and long opening hours that stretch well into the night make up for its identity.

Quite a few of us agree that the worst moments are those when one needs to share space with characters representing the most unbearable traits of local snobbery. It is not the common situation but it is part of the local ecosystem, and in that regards it is not too bad a place to check out some of the feel of the city.

Ultimately, there are very few places in town so relaxed, with a full bar, and such a generous schedule for the US. Some days it is rather packed and can be a bit overwhelming, in particular during student holidays or popular events in town. Otherwise the feel is rather inviting and worth exploring.

They also own the Diner (24hr next door) and Open City (just across the Calvert Bridge.)
