A lotta lattes

So on our last day in DC we experienced our very first coffee pub! It was awesome. The atmosphere was very neat. Big open space, colorful, lots of windows and window seats for a great view of the surrounding city. The walls were beautifully painted with art.They had a nice patio area, perfect for a pretty day. They had a toy box for the kiddos which we always love and a take one, leave one book section. They even feature jazz and open mic nights. The best part, by far, was the hillarious onsie we bought little baby bean 2 which i will feature tomorrow so check back. You dont want to miss this!

What was cool and interesting about this place was they had this big open window seat with a great view of the city. They also had gelato which momma bean is always a sucker for, not easy to find where were from. The line was long, the customer service totally sucked, and for the first time ever the latte poppa bean got was so bad he had to throw it away. Momma bean did enjoy a delightful chai tea, and im super picky about my chai. Beware, the bean score…
