Murky's cafe (an unfortunate name, i know) is on 7th St., SE, right near Eastern Market. Up till recently, they had a tiny coffee bar on Wisconsin Ave. in Georgetown--literally a hole in the wall--now gone. The Georgetown place consistently had the best cappuccino I've had in DC. The cafe on 7th St (formerly Stompin' Grounds)has been rearranged to great advantage, primarily the addition of more tables and the deletion of large couches and chairs, so more people can hang out there, open their laptops, etc.
When the owner is in the place, the cappuccinos are great. When he's not, they are terrible. Anyone else experienced this? Perhaps the owner, who I know takes great pride in his espresso drinks--rightfully so when he makes them--reads this board.
