Zombie Coffee Shop and Deli coming to former Tasti D Lite space in Columbia Heights

14th and Irving St, NW part of DCUSA

Thanks to all who sent emails about the action in the former Tasti D Lite space which has been vacant since August 2012. A permit in the window says it will be a Deli and Coffee Shop from Zombie Coffee.  Interestingly I know FroZenYo has a partnership withZombie Coffee. Of course a FroZenYo is already located nearby in the Columbia Heights Plaza. So it’ll be interesting to see how this turns out. Stay tuned.

    Seems like overkill, Columbia Heights already has plenty of coffee options.

  • Definitely do not need another coffee shop in the area. Can we get a salad joint or a smoothie shop already!

    • Cava sells salads. I agree that we don’t need more coffee. A deli would be nice.

      • I eat at Cava a lot (and love it) but their dressings are sub-par so usually opt for the pita. A Chopt or Devon & Blakely would be awesome, but I realize those models are more downtown lunch crowd. I just don’t particularly care for a 2,000 calorie meal (ie Chipotle or burger) so my quick-eating options in the area are so limited.

        • Not that to sound like a shill, but Chipotle burrito bowls are actually a downright low calorie option if you skip on sour cream and cheese. Under 600 calories, and enough for 2 meals if you eat lightly.

    • What I would give for a Robeks across the street!! And my wife wants a Chop’t.

    • Yes and no. I don’t like Starbucks and the service at Tynan and Coffey is so bad I don’t like going there. Am I forgetting any others? I’m also stoked about a deli. (+1 vote for a Chop’t)

  • Hey, at least they’re not turning this into more fast food crap.

  • As a zombie, I jut don’t feel as welcome when I shuffle (I am a slow zombie) into some establishments. Glad we have a place of our own – can’t wait to try the brains!
