Washington, DC

1110 Vermont Ave, NW

Thanks to LeftyBri for sending:

“the Starbucks at 1110 Vermont Ave NW is permanently closed. Employees were packing up and carting stuff to another location today. The sign says “electrical issues” but one does reference the closure being permanent, and the workers are shuffling product off to other store locations.”

On Friday we noted Woodley Park and Penn Quarter Starbucks closings. Updates when we learn more about this space.


14th and P Street, NW

Earlier this week I started to get multiple sad reader reports:

“I was just at the Dolcezza at 14th and P and heard the Barista say that they are closing that location soon.”

I was really hoping for a false alarm when I didn’t hear back from emails sent. Alas, I placed a call to the Logan location and they confirm that Dolcezza’s last day in Logan Circle will likely be Thursday October 1st. This is terrible, terrible news. Read More

From a press release:

“After COVID delayed its long-anticipated opening, sustainable plant-centric restaurant Oyster Oyster turned to take-out, serving local farm dinners and vegetable-focused fare to-go beginning in August of this year. But the Shaw eatery has two exciting dining experiences launching this weekend: its first foray into on-premise outdoor dining, featuring private pizza, pinball and oyster parties in its funky “Oyster Garage” space; and a daytime coffee shop pop-up with local RĀKO Coffee Roasters.

Just happened to notice these guys on a weekend walkabout but can’t find anything about them online. Were they open before the madness hit? If so anyone take a taste? They’re located on the Vermont Ave just north of K Street in the building also home to Ramen and Pho on the third floor and Thai on the 2nd floor. Read More

From an email:

“The first concepts to open this Thursday will be Cameo, our coffee shop, and the Shop Made in DC storelet located next door.

Nazia Khan is NRG’s Director of Coffee, and the woman leading the charge along with Greg Engert, who serves as the company’s Beverage Director. Cameo has been designed to pay respect to the culturally rich and globally minded DC community; it will rotate through a lineup of direct-source coffee and tea from around the world, while prioritizing sustainable, eco-consciousness, and socially responsible choices – from the beverages served, to the compostable packaging and zero waste practices, to the makers with which we partner.
