Looking for tea/coffee house to spend a few hours

  • 4

I have a few hours to wait for a friend and am looking for a tea (preferable) or coffee house to near Farragut North/West. I'm not familiar with the area so am hoping to get some great suggestions! I do need wifi to get some work done so just looking for someplace nice with space where it's ok to stay put for about 3 hours. If it's a little farther away from Farragut North/West, that's ok but I need to be able to access by metro since I hear weather will not be great tomorrow!

Thanks al! =)

  1. I recommend Teaism. They have three locations. One of them is near Farragut West. I don't know whether or not they have wifi - you would need to call and ask.

    1. In that area Teaism is probably your best bet. Unfortunately there are not a whole lot of coffee houses in that area. You could always head over to the lounge at the Mayflower for some tea and coffee (comfy chairs) or Caribou Coffee ( they might have free wi-fi...can't remember).

        And the good thing about Teaism is that it has an amazing Salty Oat Cookie, which is easily one of the best cookies in the city, along with some savory dishes. So you can make a meal out of it. Plus, the tea selection is incredible, with countless Asian varieties that I've never seen anywhere else.

      2. In case Teaism doesn't have wifi, you could also try Bourbon Coffee. It's in that general area.

        I actually tend to frequent the Caribou Coffees. Pretty comfortable, uncrowded seating, free wifi with no pressure to leave. There is one on K Street right at Farragut (between 17th and 18th), and another up toward Dupont Circle on M St.
