Foursquare Tips

  • Finally, I can take a quick break from missing New York.
  • Doesn't have wifi. Deal with it. It's not a place to sit and work. It's a place to meet a friend and have a great long conversation.
  • For pastries, get the cardamom pistachio roll. That.
  • The iced coffee comes with a shot. Always. It's amazing.
  • Beautiful space. Friendly baristas. And delicious coffee. Great addition to the DC coffee scene
  • These guys have the Best coffee in the world. Todd Carmichael is genius. Can't wait for this place to open. Get ready for a treat for your taste buds!
  • Strangely enough, the best croissant I've ever had outside of France was here.
  • Don't walk too fast, or you won't find this place. Gotta turn down the hidden Blagden Alley to find this gem!
  • Really cool space, great atmosphere and excellent customer service!
  • Try a steam-punk: a unique bean from Todd Carmichael's global search for the best single origin coffees. A list of beans on hand is available along with brief descriptions. Digging Mexico Guerrero atm
  • !
  • Don't miss their coffee activities (cuppings, classes etc) because best/most knowledgable staff ever!
  • La Colombe does a great job of sticking to quality and taste regardless of location. From DC to NYC to Chicago, they're amazing. Can't go wrong with a cafe au laits & an almond croissant.
  • Single origin coffee! There's no menu .. know what coffee you want before you hit the counter. I had picture of a cappuccino from another 4sq tip :-)
  • Great Espresso here
  • Steampunk coffee is great!
  • Cardamom pistachio morning bun, FTW.
  • Sometimes they have other espressos than their excellent Nizza. Ask whats's available. Try a drink with their Rouge beans: Nizza's brighter, bolder organic cousin.
  • No wifi?!?! What kind of cafe doesn't have wifi for its customers?
