“The former Dickey’s Frozen Custard space on I St NW between 17th and 18th has a sign saying that La Colombe is coming to the space. Farragut is in dire need of good coffee, so this is a welcome addition.”
La Colombe now has locations at 924 Blagden Alley NW, 900 6th Street, NW and is opening soon to 1346 Florida Ave. NW.
Back in April we learned that Halsa had closed and rumors were of a new Starbucks. Turns out to be true though the Starbucks might be located next door to the old Halsa space – I couldn’t tell if it was taking over both spaces – the liquor license placard (another Starbucks with beer and wine) posted next door says:
“A coffee shop that offers breakfast all day, along with savory small plates, and desserts paired with wine and beer selections. Sidewalk Cafe with a Total Occupancy Load of 30 seats.”
Ed. Note: 713 Kennedy is located right next to the future ANXO Cidery, who also just applied for a liquor license at 711 Kennedy (closest to alley) “Bar serving cider with a seating capacity of 49. Total Occupancy Load of 49. Requesting a wine pub endorsement.”
From a press release:
“District-area coffee drinkers have a new source for high-quality coffee as Lost Sock Roasters, a small-batch artisanal coffee roaster, opened its roasting facility this week at 713 Kennedy St. NW.
Founded in 2015, Lost Sock Roasters is dedicated to developing outstanding coffee sustainably. Lost Sock carefully roasts to accentuate the unique and delicious flavors in each of its coffees. This passion is derived from a love for great coffee, and a sense of responsibility for carrying out the defining step of a coffee bean’s journey from farm to mug. (more…)
