A reader reports:

“I was walking to work yesterday and saw a sign for a new TCB in the Pillsbury building at 17, M and Rhode Island NW! I was sure that spot would be filled with the obligatory Starbucks, so I’m thrilled to see The Coffee Bar expanding. Yeah for locally-owned small businesses!”

Ed. Note: The Coffee Bar opened up their first location back in Dec. 2012 at 12th and S St, NW.

Philz

More good news for San Fran expats and apparently those who like really good coffee. Another Philz is on the way. Last week we followed up on the one coming to Adams Morgan slated to open early next year. And now one is coming to Navy Yard too. And for running fans another Pacers is opening up as well – Pacers new Logan location opened up just last month in the former Muleh space on 14th Street.

Lots more inf from a press release:

“Two more great new retailers have been announced for The Yards, DC’s premier waterfront neighborhood. Pacers Running, a popular, locally-based runners resource store will open in October in the Boilermaker Shops, while Philz Coffee, a growing San Francisco-based coffee shop, will open in the new Arris residential building in Spring 2016. The announcement of the latest retailers to join The Yards was made by Forest City Washington, the project’s master developer. (more…)

Back in March we learned that San Francisco’s Philz Coffee was coming to one of the retail spaces in the new Adamo building in Adams Morgan. SF expats are incredibly excited and one inquired with the company as to when they planned on opening – “early next year.”

Hold tight! Updates as they get closer to opening.

Ed. Note: There are also rumors of a Philz Coffee coming to 14th and Florida Ave, NW but obviously that would open after this one.
