Fall is here!  Classes are in full swing and we are becoming swamped with papers, presentations, and exams.  What better way to make all of these tasks more enjoyable than to work on them in a coffee shop!  What graduate student doesn’t need a dose of caffeine?!  We all know Starbucks is not the ideal coffee shop to do school work- -the constant hustle and bustle is too distracting! 
I want to offer you all a list of coffee shops that hopefully will be more inviting than the mundane Starbucks that can be found on every block. 

1)     Down the street from the Ballston campus is Northside Café.  It is located in Clarendon and serves bakery items, coffee, and wine!  Here is the full menu.  They also provide free WiFi, comfortable seating- -both indoors and outdoors. 
2)     Peregrine Espressois a coffeehouse located in the Capitol Hill area.  This coffeehouse is sleek and contemporary.  An added bonus is that both locations serve Buzz Bakery sweet treats!!  Check it out!
3)     For those of you who are coffee snobs, you may want to check out Qualia Coffee.   Qualia specializes in the perfect cup of black coffee- – perfectly timed and flawlessly measured hand-pour method.  If you are also a foodie, you will enjoy their fabulous bakery goods- -sour-cherry lemon muffins, lemon tarragon scones, and maple bacon muffins to name just a few. 

Hope you caffeine addicts have a chance to check out some of these “off-the-beaten” path coffeehouses.  Enjoy!
