“Dear PoPville,

Someone posted this Redfin listing to a new condo noting that the “Lower Level Commercial Space will be a 2nd Location for a Boutique Coffee Shop from Georgetown”.

After some calling around, one of my neighbors was able to confirm that it will be Grace Street Coffee opening a second location.

I guess they are doing their coffee roasting there for the first few months and then opening up a store front ~6 months from now.”



14th and Randolph Street, NW

“Dear PoPville,

Talked to the owner of the 14th st Mini Mart at 14th and Randolph. He also owns the vacant Chinese place next store. The Chinese place has been totally gutted and he said he plans on opening an Ethiopian cafe with coffee in the next three months. The space between the mini mart and the Randolph Tower parking lot will be a patio. Hopefully his timeline is right. Would be a really exciting addition to the neighborhood.”
