Ok, I'm really bad at doing searches on the new format Chowhound has, so forgive me if this is a repeat topic.
I'm trying to find a nice, non-Starbucks coffeeshop that has nice pastries and good seating area in NoVA. After having two successive disappointing cups of soy lattes at Murky, I am throwing in the towel there. Which to me is too bad because I used enjoy being there.
I *love* trying out new coffee places, mainly because a good cup of coffee is hard to come by, much less enjoy.
Are there any recommendations? Has anyone tried the Rendezvous coffeeshop near Murky's? What are your favorite places (I'm in Arlington) near me, and what is your fave side item to order with (e.g. biscotti, cake, etc...).
Thanks so much!
