3101 Wisconsin Ave, NW
Last month we learned that Open City Coffeehouse (owners of Tryst etc.) was coming to the National Cathedral in December. Looks like they are on track to open mid-late next week and I took a quick peek to see the progress. First I had to orient myself – it is literally in the shadow of the Cathedral (if your back is to Wisconsin Ave – in the small little cottage to the right):
But it’s not that small – there will be seating for 40-45 inside and when the weather turns nice, seating for 40-45 more outside.
The inside has a huge open ceiling:
And some sweet stained glass:
In addition to all the traditional coffee options (espresso, etc.) there will be sandwiches, salads, waffles, eggs, milkshakes and more.
And free wifi of course. They will be open 7 days a week from 7am – 6pm.
