Oof. Just last September we spoke about some urgently needed love for some of “the nicest people ever.”
Sip of Seattle’s Facebook says:
“Sip of Seattle is a family run Coffee Stop that will service all your Java needs. Whether its a small cup of drip or an iced grande half soy caramel mocha latte, we pride ourselves on being able to provide our customers with a drink they can truly enjoy.

Thanks to Abram for passing on the scuttlebutt:
“Just got word from one of the employees that the Dunkin’ Donuts at 14th and U street NW will also close on December 29th! First Columbia Heights, now U street! It’s a 14th street Donut massacre! Oh well, I guess another one bites the dust.”
Dunkin Donuts opened at 14th and U Street back in October 2011. STAY TUNED.

“I recently opened up a specialty coffee shop on Wisconsin Avenue (Corridor Coffee). We took over the existing The Bean Counter and did an entire redesign / rebrand. We source our coffee from Counter Culture Coffee and our pastries are delivered fresh every morning from Hawthorne Fine Pastries. We’re super excited to meet our local D.C. community!
