Wow, @metrocurean tweeted some huge news Tues. afternoon:
“Coming to Mt Pleasant this spring: Flying Fish Coffee & Tea @ 3064 Mt Pleasant St. pouring @counter_culture coffee + @TSCreamery milk.”
This is the space in between Golden Scissors and the Mayflower Chinese Restaurant. You can see it has a for lease sign in the google street view above.
They already have a Facebook page that says:
“Flying Fish, coffee and tea is a coffee shop in Mt Pleasant, serving excellently prepared coffee, espresso, and tea, in addition to tasty pastries to accompany them.”
Actually it looks like they’ve had the space since Oct. as the following comment was made October 25, 2010 at 6:51pm:
“The Fish has landed! We officially have a space in Mt. Pleasant and will be opening as soon as we can make it look pretty. Updates will be forthcoming.”
Think this’ll be a good fit for Mt. Pleasant St, NW?
I hate to use the phrase twice in one week but I think if this place is even moderately well run it will have a license to print money…
And on a side note it seems that this space was once destined for Urban Sustainable that has since opened up at 1787 Columbia Rd, NW in Adams Morgan. This came up in a google search:
