George Howell Coffee – Boston, MA

The George Howell Coffee location, connected to The Godfrey Hotel in Boston, is a classy spot to meet up with friends or sip on a cup of coffee before exploring the city.  When I walked into this coffee shop I immediately felt like I was in an art studio. The space was large with  art…

The Coffee Bar – Washington DC

The Coffee Bar is the type of place one could spend all day reading, people watching, and drinking coffee.  The fact that it is located in the center of a residential neighborhood makes it quite homey as well. As I approached the shop on a Sunday morning, I was already impressed with the amount of people…

Maketto – Washington DC

The popular coffee drink people seemed to enjoy there was a cappuccino….
