If someone can recommend a cafe with decent coffee, atmosphere, fast wifi, ample seating AND open late, i will be eternally grateful. A past habitué of Seattle and Berkeley coffee houses, I have been unable to find a cafe in the DC area that has all of the above attributes. I have tried A LOT of cafes here, but have come up again and again with nothing. Here are few of my trials:
panera bread: horrible brewed coffee, but decent wifi
caribu coffee: decent coffee, but wifi limited to one hour.
murkey coffee: very good coffee, but hard to get a seat in the evenings (dc and arlington)
cafe misha (in alexandria): the best coffee around, but closes at 8:00
stacey's coffee parlor in Falls Church: good coffee, wifi, limited seating.
Wegmans (a grocery store, of all places) very good espresso coffee, free wifi, but lots of kids. And it is far from DC.
Again, I will totally appreciate any suggestions.
