  • Dear DC, Stop trying to make fat. Regards, Anonymous.

    And I think to myself – why did I not think of this? I drink coffee all day and dream of doughnuts. Ohhhhhh. Coffee AND doughnutssssssssss…….

  • Why do we have to make everything so pretentious in this town? Cofee and donut pairing? Can’t it just be coffee and donuts? A delightful spread of strawberry preserves nestled in a bed of peanut butter, ensconsed betwixt two layers of white bread: a peanut butter and jelly pairing available exclusively this weekend.

    • Because Qualia isn’t just any coffee. Finkelstein serves up some of the best coffee in town, so he can be as pretentious as he wants to be about it, IMO.

      • Eh, it’s good coffee, but no coffee is good enough to jusify this Porlandia level of self parody.

        • Yeah, seriously this is hilarious. By adding pairing does that mean they can charge $5 more?
          Qualia is okay – but it is the least friendly coffee shop I’ve ever been to (minus chains). I pulled coffee for a while in Seattle in the 90s so I think I get a small amount of street cred to judge.

  • Oh man, if I were in town this weekend, I’d be there. I’m not the biggest fan of Dunkin, Krispy Kreme, etc. but every fancypants donut I’ve eaten has been totally delicious.

  • Puhleeze. It’s coffee and doughnuts. This ain’t rocket science. Nobody’s detecting “notes of raspberry jelly” here.

  • No cronuts. DC sucks.

    • andy

      you can stand in line for cupcakes in Georgetown if you want . . . Just go get whatever Le Caprice is serving up. Probably just as good as any magical unicorn cronut. And on my commute!

  • just when we thought police and emergency responses couldn’t get any slower you had to go and do somethin like this…….
