Franklyn's -- What happened?

Merry | Feb 10, 2003 10:24 AM

I walked by Franklyn's coffee shop on 18th & Florida and found it closed and the windows papered over with the announcement that something called L'Enfant (a creperie?) was coming soon. I know Franklyn's has been keeping erratic hours of late, and I knew the place was probably not longed for this world after its brief closure and reopening last year, but it's sad to see one of the most unpretentious places in Adams Morgan close.

What happened? Anyone have the scoop?

And are there any other coffee shops in DC (in the city -- am carless) that serve French press coffee?
