This might be our favorite picture of a hidden gem in DC solely because of the quote “Coffee First, Schemes Later.” So far, in HQ’s experience running this mystery business, none of this would be possible without coffee. Coffee especially from…
The Coffee Bar (TCB for short)
There are two locations in DC: 17th & M and 12th & S. This picture was taken at the 12th & S street location but trust us when we say the other one has equally as magnificent menu art. Both make consistently excellent coffee as delightful as their menu artwork (insert artist cred here?). If you’ve got an early start to your DC adventures or need a caffeine pick-me-up before your date night, hit up these spots for an effective buzz and a majestic cup of joe.
