Thanks to a reader for sending word about this Caribou by Metro Center at 13th and G St, NW. Previously we noted Caribou closures at 17th and Penn and 14th and Rhode Island. The one near the White House should be reopening as Peet’s in 2-3 weeks from now.
Four years in the making, Uprising Muffin Company was raised on the belief that food should be simple, fresh and above all, seriously delicious. That’s why every muffin we make for you starts from scratch with 10 ingredients or less, no preservatives, no artificial colors, nothing you can’t pronounce. Sure, preservatives mean food can sit on a shelf longer, but we don’t believe food was meant to last forever.
If our muffin isn’t in your hands today, it’s being donated to someone less fortunate and fresh muffins will be ready for you tomorrow.
Local Buzz & Fresh Eats
Our coffee is locally roasted in small batches, so it couldn’t be any fresher. Milk for our lattes comes from respectfully raised local cows and our sandwiches and salads are prepared fresh each day with local ingredients whenever they’re available.
The perfect place to meet up with some old friends, make some new ones, or take advantage of free wifi while nibblin’ a hearty muffin and sippin’ a drip, Uprising is Shaw’s newest place away from home and the hustle and bustle.
The Wydown has now popped up at Patty Boom Boom and is open 7 days a week from 8-4 Saturday-Sunday and 7-12 Monday-Friday.
Previously the Wydown Coffee Bar had popped up across the street at 1320 U Street, NW before closing in mid-December. The pop up at Patty Boom Boom is expected to last a couple months until their permanent space at the new Louis Development by 14th and U St, NW is completed.
“In our cafes, first and foremost, the COFFEE and the CUSTOMER are the primary focus.
Enter any La Colombe cafe and one immediately notices what is missing – the merchandising and clutter of CDs, coffee mugs, home coffee machines and lunch foods; all items that distract from the coffee experience and slow quality service.”
“I wanted to alert PoPville about the kickoff of coffee service at Duke’s Grocery.
We are starting things off tomorrow morning at 8:00am with complimentary drip coffee for anyone who comes by!
Our guests have been enjoying coffee, espressos, lattes, cappuccinos and more during lunch, brunch and supper so we figured it was time to start the day with the same premium Italian coffee offerings, along with light breakfast items.
Going forward, coffee service will be offered Tuesday – Friday beginning at 8:00am.”
“Ryan Fleming and Miranda Mirabella today announced that they are starting Slipstream, an innovative new coffee and cocktail business with their flagship location set to open along 14th Street in Logan Circle this Spring. Slipstream will focus on service as well as the journey of coffee from source to sip and will complement the coffee with crafted cocktails in the evening.
Fleming and Mirabella will partner with Madcap Coffee Company, a specialty coffee roaster based in Grand Rapids, MI and Washington, DC and Slipstream will share a space with Fathom Creative, a creative agency headquartered in DC. (more…)
While we’ve heard Peet’s Coffee and Tea will be taking over the Caribou Coffee spaces – a commenter says they hear they also will be taking over the vacant corner spot at 11th and E across from the E Street Cinema next to White Apron:
UPDATE – Scuttlebutt confirmed – thanks to a reader for sending:
“Peet’s Coffee & Tea at 1001 Pennsylvania Avenue, DC – Corner of 11th & E. I work in the building where Peet’s is opening and we received this last month. Will open Spring/Summer 2014.”
