Restaurant-starved Rosslyn is going to get a new coffeeshop. Caffe Aficionado has signed a lease for 1919 N. Lynn St. in Rosslyn. According to broker Alex Walker of Miller Walker Retail Real Estate, who leases the building, they'd like to get open by spring.
There aren't a whole lot of details about the coffeeshop available, but according to its Twitter account, they're going to be upscale in style, and serve coffee from Handsome Coffee Roasters. There's a Facebook page set up, but they haven't started posting on it yet.
Update: The cafe's broker, John Gogos, offered a little more color on the concept. They plan to have artisanal pastries and sandwiches along with the coffee, and are looking to open additional locations once this one gets off the ground. Architecture firm Grupo7 will be designing the cafe to have a sophisticated look. The company also tries to rely on organic and local products when possible.
