From a press release:

“The popular neighborhood coffeehouse at Politics and Prose will re-open officially on April 14, following a ten-week closure for renovations. Renamed The Den, the coffeehouse will be operated by Matt Carr, who founded the excellent nearby market and eatery Little Red Fox with his wife Jena. The Den will feature expanded seating, improved furnishings and lighting, and a new menu created by Carr that includes dinner items as well as wine and craft beer.

The changes mark the first major renovation of the coffeehouse since its start in 1993. P&P’s owners—Bradley Graham and Lissa Muscatine—worked with local architect Mark McInturff to ensure that the renovated space would retain the casual atmosphere and cozy feel that many in the neighborhood have enjoyed over the years. Visitors to The Den also will find the same superb coffee they’ve come to expect from the coffeehouse, along with a new and varied selection of made-to-order menu items. Food choices will include daily fresh baked pastries, tartines, soups, and cheese and charcuterie boards, and a much-anticipated new dessert, Pie Fries. Locally sourced, farm-to-table produce will be featured whenever possible.

The Den will be open Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. (more…)

Back in March we learned that Politics & Prose was adding beer and wine options to their coffehouse – an update from the owners:

“The coffeehouse at Politics & Prose has long been a signature attraction of the store, a neighborhood gathering spot for book lovers seeking a great cup of coffee, light fare, and a feeling of community. And now the place is about to get a facelift. In January, we’ll begin a renovation to add more seating, improve the flow, and generally brighten the space.

We’ll have more details in the weeks ahead about some other exciting plans underway for the coffeehouse when it re-opens. But in the meantime we wanted to let customers know that it will be closed beginning January 1 for up to three months. During that period the outdoor entrance into the coffeehouse will not be accessible, so customers coming into the store from the parking lot will need to enter through the back of the Children and Teens Department or through the store’s front door on Connecticut Avenue NW.
