Old Soul is the kind of place you want to stop at for a quiet moment and some well brewed java. It has that cozy living room feel, with the modern technology of brewing coffee. Old Soul is also a great place to stop for lunch as they have a wide range of menu items, like the crowd favorite grilled cheese (this isn’t your mom’s grilled cheese!).

Naked Lounge

1500 Q Street

“I am hanging out at the Naked Lounge”. Not only does it make your friends say “what?” its fun to say. The Naked Lounge is a cool little place, with good coffee, great people watching, and well, let’s just say some interesting art on the walls. (They don’t call it the Naked Lounge for nothing ya know!) The chai latte is the best in town, and the selection of teas is enormous. Warning: if you sit in the chairs, be prepared to stay a while, those things smother you so you just can’t get up…so comfy!
