Pro Tips

This is one of a few shops in the DC Metro Area that pulls single-origin espresso in addition to their standard espresso blend. It's not on the menu so ask for it. Craft beers are sold by the bottle. Look upstairs for quieter space and more outlets. Outdoor patio has picnic tables and umbrellas. Very accessible: Capital Bikeshare and Clarendon metro stop within a block. Outlets are neatly tucked away under the bar tables upstairs, often next to small coat hooks and along the perimeter on the main floor. You can continue working upstairs after 5, but only if you pair your laptop with a beer or wine - as that's when the upstairs turns into a wine bar. Happy hour starts at 5. WiFi seems stronger upstairs and is reliable over speedy.

  • I second the terrible wifi. My VPN keeps dropping

  • Wifi password is northsidesocial

  • It’s pretty loud upstairs and the internet is crappy. The food is good and it’s real cute, but I wouldn’t work here again.
