The Wydown is a well loved coffee shop in DC and they just opened a new location on H St, which I am very excited about because it is only about 3 blocks from my house! (Dangerous, I know.) This beautifully designed shop is inside of the new Apollo building which is home to some awesome new mid-century style apartments. Their lobby alone is breathtaking and serves also as extra seating for Wydown customers. I love this little spot because they serve great coffee, are super friendly, and have the most gorgeous espresso machines I've ever seen. Yes, you heard me right, that is my favorite part!
