“Slipstream is celebrating 2 years tomorrow, October 20th! As an appreciation to our customers, we are offering coffee and a muffin for $2, iced coffee for $2, and champagne for $5 all day (all after tax)! There will also be a raffle for fun prizes.”
“Monday is a big day at Coco’s! We’re finally opening for coffee and homemade pastries – cream puffs, donuts, muffins, scones – starting at 8am. Our espresso is from La Colombe and drip coffee from Ceremony.
Lunch will start at 11:30 and include pizza, sandwiches (my favorite is the P.L.T. – Porchetta, Lettuce and Tomato on homemade Focaccia), and salads.
Then, starting at 4pm it’s Pizza night. Just $9 for any pie and $30 for a pizza and a pitcher! Every Monday.“
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…)
