If you're tired of chain coffee shops, Bourbon Coffee on L Street is the place to go. For some reason, I think it's pretty neat to be able to shorten the distance between the hot java purchase and the bean grower - rather than enriching a network of anonymous brokers, warehousers, shareholders and other assorted intermediaries. Named after a strain... More

This place is busy for a reason. They have an extensive menu of coffees and teas and assorted barista drinks. They also offer breakfast sandwiches that are large enough to share and grab-n-go items for those of the run. Their lunch menu includes paninis and I'm sure they are just as good and big.

Stopped in here for an afternoon pick-me-up and was not disappointed. They answered all of my questions about drinks and then made me the perfect one! It was packed so seating was at a premium, but we ended up wishing we had more time to just sit and soak up the ambience.

Always grab a cup of coffee here when in DC. Great flavor without the bitterness. Quick and happy service.

The Blue Eyes was a fruit juice, lemonade tea delight! The coffee beverages were exquisite and I also got the grilled cheese deluxe which had added tomato & bacon: DEE-LISH!!! Needed a small snack, it was a lot more than a snack so great value for the money! I wish this place was in CT! Inside was packed and we... More

I'm already partial to Rwandan coffee, having friends there. Finding Bourbon Coffee in DC was a real treat. I don't bother with the espresso drinks, just a cup of coffee. If they have Muhazi, it's pretty amazing. The food is standard coffee bar fare... yogurt parfaits and lemon poppyseed muffins. But it's a coffee bar, not a muffin bar.

We were here for two days on holiday and came in for coffee twice as we really like the experience, quality of the coffee and the wonderful service.

I chose this place because it said it was open at 6:30am and I was looking for a cheaper alternative to the hotel breakfast. Turned up at 6:35am and was told (without apology) that the food wasn't ready yet and would be a half hour more, which was too late for me as I had an early business meeting. The... More

So nice to support a coffee shop that sources ingredients responsibly. Cute place inside and nice set of tables outside.
