Back in April we learned that Colada Shop was:

“Named after the iconic Cuban-style coffee, Colada Shop is a concept that blends together the contemporary lifestyle of Washingtonians with the Cuban tradition of starting and ending the day. Paying homage to the Caribbean way of coffee, food, cocktails and social lifestyle, Colada Shop will be a casual café and eatery where guests come for the quality and stay for the company.

Colada Shop takes its name from one of Cuba’s quintessential coffees, the Colada, which is 4oz of Cuban- style espresso traditionally served in a Styrofoam cup along with small, plastic demitasses. Its takeaway form is meant to be shared. Sharing a colada remains a prominent social and cultural activity and is customary of workplace breaks in Cuban communities.”

Emphasizing the unique aromas, rich flavors and audacious colors, the menu will feature strong coffee, traditional savory snacks, and distinctive cocktails, all prepared with precision. From the classic Cuban sandwich that has captured America’s heart, to reinterpreted comfort bites like the guava pastelito and croqueta. Dishes will highlight Cuba’s heritage, colorful ambiance and lively culture.”
