D.C. is hopping on the java train hardcore this November.
Here’s a roundup of some of the new and expanding coffee options:
- San Francisco-based java giant Peet’s Coffee is gearing up to open two new stores in NoMa and the Atlas District. The shop at 1275 First Street NE is projected to begin pouring its first coffees to the public Monday, November 13, the company tells Eater. The second is slated to open next to the new Whole Foods at 528 H Street NE before the year is up. There are now 22 Peet’s shops in the D.C. area, including the one-of-a kind slow bar that opened last year in Georgetown.
- Gregorys Coffee, a burgeoning family-owned chain that helps keep Manhattan workers going, is about to help downtown D.C. also stay highly caffeinated. Three shops are set to arrive this month, at 1900 L Street NW, 1000 Vermont Avenue NW, and 1147 20th Street NW. Founded by 35-year-old Gregory Zamfotis in 2006, the brand has grown to 26 locations in New York and New Jersey.
- French bakery and sit-down cafe Maison Kayser just pushed back its opening dates from this year to early 2018. Its Penn Quarter location (650 Massachusetts Avenue NW) and White House-adjacent spot (1345 F Street NW) will represent the global boulangerie’s first expansion in the U.S. outside of New York City.
