Washington, DC

Holy smokes – First Cup Cafe (formerly formerly known as Breakwell’s) closed!??! There was a time this would’ve been big news. And so it goes.

Back in 2009 Simon said about First Cup Cafe:

“I love this place! It’s run by an Ethiopian woman who couldn’t be nicer. The back room has lots of table space and a surprising amount of light. I’ve sat there writing for hours and hours. The breakfasts are fine (a little generic except for some yummy quiche-like thing they call stratta) but for downtown, the space can’t be beat.”

Updates when we learn who rents the space.

9th and M Street, NW
