Tryst came highly recommended to me as a “must hit” coffeehouse in the Washington D.C. area.
It wasn’t anything I expected.
This isn’t necessarily a bad thing. If all the coffee shops I visited were the same, well, I would be out of a hobby, lol. BUT, this place was very unexpected!
Located in the Adams Morgan area in Washington D.C. Tryst greets patrons with a serene patio. As I passed the beautiful outdoor area, where people were sitting and enjoying a meal, it struck me that this was far more than your average cafe.
Walking inside, the place felt dark to me, sort of like the lighting a bar might have and it had that feel to it as well. This place is not strictly a coffeehouse at all, in fact the coffee is just a small piece of this company called Tryst.
I approached the counter and ordered a skinny cappuccino, the drink was delicious as a cappuccino should be, the coffee, Counter Culture.
Tryst is not only a coffeehouse but also restaurant and a bar at night. The place was decorated very uniquely. Vintage couches faced a dated fireplace, interesting art on the wall and skylights lit the place during the day. Unique, very unique.
The coffee was delicious, the staff, friendly. Will I return? I’m not too sure that’s my scene.
