colado shop
1405 T Street, NW

From a press release:

“Renowned forerunner in the beverage industry Juan Coronado and partner Daniella Senior are proud to announce the opening of Colada Shop in Washington, DC, a concept that blends together the contemporary lifestyles of Washingtonians with the Cuban traditions of starting and ending the day. Paying homage to this Caribbean way of doing coffee, food, cocktails and social lifestyle, Colada Shop is a casual café and eatery where guests come for the quality of offerings and the unmatched hospitality. The second location of Colada Shop will open on Wednesday, February 1st, at 1405 T St NW, Washington DC.

“We are very excited to come to DC and to this incredible and dynamic neighborhood”, said Senior. “This second outpost will be a much cozier interpretation of our sister location in Loudoun County but will have the same energy, vibrancy, and – of course – incredible Cuban bites and drinks.”
