“Dear PoP,

I am taking the GMAT next week and I need a great place to study…silence isn’t necessary, something like the noise level in Starbucks would work for me. I would love to find a place to set up my computer, spread out my notes a little bit and even get something decent to eat while I am studying (planning to go around dinner time).

Any suggestions for places in the neighborhood? Was thinking 17th street, adams morgan, dupont, shaw, logan circle, U street. Also double points if it’s someplace also available on Friday nights. I went to three places last Friday that had either a stand-up comic, was closed due to a music show, or was just plain closed.”

We looked a this question last year and discussed some other coffee shops here but in the last year lots of new places have popped up. So where’s your favorite place to work and/or study?

I think Filter, Peregrine, Qualia, and Mid City Caffe not to mention Tynan and nearby Columbia Heights Coffee and Sticky Fingers are all good options.  What about non coffee shop options? I think the National Portrait Gallery/American Art Museum Courtyard could be a pretty sweet option.
