- For the die hard coffee lover. - Pricey, but they know what they're doing so it's worth it. - Lots of seating options: indoor or outdoor, upstairs or downstairs.

Great coffee. Not pretentious. Simple. Charming. Perhaps not the most comfortable place to sit and work for hours (although they do have seating upstairs that is a bit secluded), but it is a great place to relax and have seriously great coffee.

Great latte. Great people watching. Out back it feels like Berkeley, in a good way. The staff is terrific. Even if it your first time there, you will feel at home. There are some other goodies; and you can buy beans.

Nice little oasis near the Georgia Ave/Petsworth Metro. Great place to sit and relax or get some studying done. I just had the coffee of the day and sat down by the street, a $2 break.

Walk in through the back door of Qualia and you will immediately swoon at the scent of coffee being roasted ON SITE! The freshness makes all the difference. Americano is wonderful, as well as their quiches. Chai is fantastic. Much less pretentious then tryst and...More
