“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…)

Back in March we learned the former Trohv space would be subdivided into four units and now we know one will be a Starbucks. Thanks to A.S.K. for sending:

“Starbucks is one of the businesses replacing Trohv in Takoma!”

Ed. Note: Don’t forget the excellent La Mano Coffee Bar is just down the street at 304 Carroll Street, NW.
