A look at what's going on in Trinidad, on H Street, and in the larger area north of Capitol Hill.
What's the difference between an Ethiopian coffee shop and a typical coffee shop? Does the person who posted the comment mean it will be owned by Ethiopians or that it will serve Ethiopian pastry and coffee? I love Ethiopian food and eat in Little Ethiopia all the time, so the idea of an Ethiopian coffee shop sounds terrific.
I was assuming Ethiopian coffee. I would be thrilled by this. I still think the best coffee in town is served by Harambe (Eritrean in Adams Morgan).
Where is Little Ethiopia?
9th Street NW between U & T. I stand by Harambe for value & aesthetics.
I second Harambe, but tend to visit the joints on 9th and U St more frequently now that I live in that area.
inked, Thanks for the info. Do you know when the coffee shop will be open?I love Ethiopian food and eat at Dukem all the time. I was recently in Addis Ababa and I was addicted to their coffee.
Sorry, I don't have any other info on this one. The comment was the first I'd heard of the coffee shop.
Sadly, this sounds too much like a rumor to be credible. I can't imagine that this would do well on H street at this particular time in the neighborhood's development.
The R&B Coffee House seems to be doing well. Another coffee house on the other end of H Street might also be successful.
I'm the one who posted teh comment first time around. I can only say that I heard this from the building's owner. I can't remember if he said it was a done deal or still in negotiations. It will serve Ethiopian coffee and pastries according to my source. I asked if it will morph into a full Ethiopian restaurant (thus saving me the trip up to Little Ethiopia but he said no, the space is too small for full food service.
