Cherry Street has the Feel Good Factor for coffee shops - it’s bright inside, there’s always a constant but not outrageous flow of people, and the seats are extremely comfortable. You could do some morning work alone, have a lowkey lunch meeting (complete with tasty Persian stews like gheymeh with saffron and split peas), or sit down at 3pm to do one last push before going home for the night. Not to mention that they have oat milk, which one day will be used as our national currency.

Suggested by our writers
Bakery Nouveau is an excellent Capitol Hill bakery we like most for the twice baked almond croissant and croque monsieur.
We avoid superlatives, but Vivace probably makes the best espresso in the city. Hit the Capitol Hill location for its proximity to Sunrise Tacos.
