I’m happy to report that Bloomingdale/Ledroit Park/Truxton Circle residents will be getting a new coffee house very soon. The Florida Coffee House will be opening (hopefully) next Sat. at 220 Florida Ave, NW:
I ran into one of the owners (who was super nice) and was able to get a sneak peek. It is a very small space that can probably fit about 15. There will be a few outdoor spaces available out back when the weather warms up. In addition to coffee, pastries and some other eats will also be available at the coffee house.
Local residents will recognize that this space is only 1 1/2 blocks away from the very well regarded Big Bear Cafe located at 1st and R St, NW.
The Florida Coffee House looks like it can become a very quaint neighborhood spot. I don’t think people will travel miles to visit, like some do for Big Bear, but I do think this new spot will serve the neighborhood(s) very well. I’m super eager to try out the coffee. And they’ll have free wifi too!
While final touches were ongoing at the time of my visit, you can see a couple of photos of the inside after the jump.
