While I was following up on the new Wok and Roll Restaurant location on 18th Street, NW I happened to notice that the door to the old Caribou Coffee spot (across the street) was open. I walked inside and spoke to the new renters – Uptowner Cafe.
If the name sounds familiar it’s because they have a few locations around town including the relatively recently opened spot on 14th St, NW in the Tivoli Complex in Columbia Heights. I have to admit I’m a fan of the Columbia Heights location (they have Dr. Brown’s soda!).
They plan on opening up this Friday. Think they’ll make a nice addition to 18th Street?
