  • I’m not a fan of these places, but then again, I’m not familiar with this area, so maybe this a good thing for the locals who are likely to frequent this stuff. Something tells me that healthier options are probably needed in the area though…

  • Not gonna lie; I’m incredibly jealous of the Dunkin’ Donuts. Developers seem to be buying up real estate in this area like mad – may well be a boom area in the medium term given proximity to Metro, H Street, Streetcar…

  • More Little Caesars!

  • People who complain that they can’t afford to buy in DC should seriously be looking at this area. Don’t feel the sting of “I told you so” in five years.

  • I feel kinda bad that I had no idea where this Metro station was and had to look it up. They kind of place I might have planned to ride past before getting out at New Carrollton to ride Amtrak, before scrapping the whole plan and renting car instead.
    Kinda like my own Metro station (Petworth) before I bought nearby in 2008.

  • Crap, crap and crap.
    Maybe a Lipitor cart out in front.
    Stay fatty America.

  • Just went past there yesterday and no those aren’t the most healthy options but the area has come a long way it’s a start in the right direction. Hopefully we can get a dounkin/baskins at park place in petworth I’m sure it would do really well

  • What a dismal line up in a promising location. Developer isn’t delivering on promise– surprise

    • What did the developer promise? I’m sure the developer is trying to deliver the best possible options it can. Many business won’t consider going EOTR. If Sweet Greens or Chipotle was interested, I’m sure the developer would happily sign them up.

  • Love the new coffee option but agree with others that these are not the best options. I know it’s like beating a dead horse, but this area could benefit from a sit-down restaurant. Denny’s doesn’t cut it.

    Not sure residents who live around this development will take issue with this news.

  • A Sala Thai sit-down restaurant is also coming to Park 7 as well.

    Before the haters come out, remember this is Minnesota Ave, not Wisconsin. Fast food places like these will do really well over there with the existing residents. And I’m sure plenty of newcomers to that building will like donuts and pizza too.

    • they would likely do well on Wisconsin too.

        Perhaps, but can you imagine the uproar amongst the NIMBY’s? I can’t see those places ever going anywhere west of RCP.

        • Heck, I only live a couple miles from here and the NIMBYs would never let any of these establishments even think of defiling our precious neighborhood (though we do have a DD already).

          • how do you have a DD if they wouldn’t allow it?

          • brookland_rez

            That’s a good question. There’s a Popeye’s and McDonald’s on Wisconsin, actually. The answer is that these are hold overs from when the area was merely middle class/upper middle class, and the rest of the city east of RC Park was lower class mostly.

        • i’ve never met someone that wasn’t a NIMBY. unless they were not in town very long.

        • i think the woeful stretch between the georgetown library and the southern end of friendship heights would benefit from a DD.

        • You must not get out much, because there’s a Dunkin Donuts on Connecticut Avenue, and a Popeye’s on Wisconsin Avenue. Both are west of the park.

        • That’s true, residents west of RCP only go to artisanal bakeries like Baked and Wired, Georgetown Cupcake, Paul, Pie Sisters, Sprinkles, Firehook, Something Sweet, Patisserie Poupon, Yael, Jetties. Dunkin Donuts is just too unhealthy for residents of this area. Think of all the sugar and carbs!

  • Wow, I had no idea a development project was in the works here. PoP could you try to do more EOTR coverage please?

  • How do I apply to any of these jobs before they open
