On Monday I begged and pleaded, Today they have listened. La Colombe finally opening Manhattan Laundry location on Flordia Ave tomorrow (Saturday)!


From a press release:

“La Colombe will open its third Washington D.C.-area café on Saturday, October 1, in the historic Manhattan Laundry building, located at 1328-1348 Florida Ave NW. The leading coffee company, known for ethical, long-term trade practices with growers, is committed to a vision of bringing better coffee to more people.

The 1,200 square-foot café preserves the historic aesthetic and features of the space with exposed brick and high ceilings while focusing on customer flow and service. The new café creates a welcoming environment for the neighborhood to gather. The three-building Manhattan Laundry structure, which is on The National Register of Historic Places, originally housed the traction facility for a streetcar company. Later the structure became a printing plant and it was converted into a laundry in 1905. This industrial space attracted La Colombe, a company which has a passion for preserving raw and authentic buildings steeped in history. (more…)
