A new coffee shop has opened just across from the convention center at 9th and M Streets NW. Their “soft opening” was this week and they’ll have an official, grand opening next week. I stopped by tonight and the store looked great, the staff very friendly, and the coffee quite good. They told me they planned to be open from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. during the week and 5 p.m. on Sunday, although I’m sure the house might change. Looks like I’ve now got two local coffee shops to hang out in as part of my new graduate student lifestyle.
