The Coffee Bar ★★★★

Inwood, W.V., a small town located right off the I-81 interstate is where I call home. To be honest, it is much more rural than I prefer.

I grew up in the beautiful mountains of West Virginia and though I do appreciate the beauty of it all, I am a city girl at heart. Maybe it’s because the ‘middle of nowhere’ was the normal during my childhood that the city became so alluring to me.

I love the city for many reasons and one day hope to reside in a major city. For now, the fact that I can enjoy Washington D.C. coffee shops in less than a two-hour drive, is something for which I am thankful and take advantage of as much as I possibly can!

This day while in our nations capitol,  I sought out The Coffee Bar at its first location, a house that dates back to the 1800’s. I appreciated the extremely unusual interior. The place was roomy and interesting things surrounded me, it is a must visit location for sure!

I ordered my usual, a skinny cappuccino. The drink was made perfectly and the place felt friendly and comfortable. This combination can be hard to find. I have been in many friendly cafes, yet the drinks are not up to par. On the other hand, I have found some cafes that serve an amazing cappuccino, but they don’t have a friendly feel, The Coffee Bar had both! I will return and how cool to find yet another, amazing Washington D.C. coffee-house!

I may not live in the downtown area of a city at the moment, but I visit the city often and love every second of it while I am there!

  1. I’ve also been in a lot of cafes that I want to be good because they’re so friendly and the drinks are just ick. I’m a city girl too, I look for coffee places like no other!

  2. So glad that you had good product AND good service. There’s a coffee shop a few blocks away from my work that I’ve hard pretty negative things about. I haven’t personally been there, but people constantly complain about their service in the local community Facebook page. It’s unfortunate, because I was hoping to check it out some day. I also work in a hotel, so I had previously referred people there when they ask for a cafe in walking distance. I refer a different cafe now.

  3. You are so right about coffee shops often EITHER having great drinks OR a friendly staff. It’s a shame that the “coffee snobs” often make far better coffee than kind Baristas. haha.
