Big Chair Coffee Open for Business
temporary sign - new one coming soon
Exciting times on MLK this morning: Big Chair Coffee opened for business! Here are some photos of the opening. I missed part of the morning rush, but got there at about 8 and witnessed a pretty steady flow of customers. Here in Anacostia we're accustomed to walking or driving down the street with no expectation of anything being open, so I'm sure it will take a little time for the place to really fill up. But this is hot.
the to-go cup, ...otherwise you get a mug
fresh pastries, fresh customers
hash browns to order - and a food menu throughout the day
all the machinery came from Murky Coffee - so it's quality stuff
everyone was pretty ecstatic, with a few "I'll be back for lunch" promises
I do love the word "open"
It's going to take some getting used to, this whole idea of having a legit place to go in the neighborhood. I'm kinda beaming right now.
