Grace Street Coffee

Georgetown displays some of the best scenery in DC, with lots of historic architecture, cobblestone streets and occasionally-filled canals. Striking a great balance of conservation and new construction, many of the local businesses operate out of beautifully rendered venues, making a sunny walk down M Street a window shopper's paradise.

Naturally when walking Georgetown, my eyes dart to and fro for great coffee, as there's nothing as sweet as great coffee in a stylish space. One such eye-catching outfit is Grace Street Coffee, located in a newer structure off its namesake street. Sharing digs with SUNdeVICH and South Block Juice Co in the Grace Street Market, Grace Street Coffee offers a sleek, minimalistic space with tons of shared seating in which to enjoy the market offerings.

Grace Street roasts their own beans in-house, and choosing from their current offerings, I settled upon a Costa Rican single origin for my espresso and a pourover of an Ethiopian Idido. The espresso, pulled short and served in a glass tumbler, sang of raspberry, cocoa, lemonade, croissant, a little arugula and mineral water. The pourover also rang the proverbial bell tower, with delicious bright notes of apple, berries, cherry and pomegranate along with some cocoa, caramel and a little dandelion green.

Adding in the pleasant mood of the baristas, Grace Street proved to be an excellent bastion of DC coffee. Whether you're a college student desperate for study space or a tourist seeking great coffee, definitely check out Grace Street Coffee. 



These wonderful folks made this visit possible in part. Make sure to check them out!
