A local Dupont Circle coffee shop and eatery beloved by locals, this street-level hangout brings a bright, airy-yet-intimate vibe with a touch of New Orleans funk to the pulsing heart of Logan Circle. With its semi-industrial design, exposed brick, and handcrafted wood tables and counters, this corner spot is both comfortable and cool.
Celebrity chef David Guas, familiar to most from his time on the Travel Channel and the Today Show, is the culinary lead of Lil' B, infusing more than a touch of his colorful southern roots in the atmosphere and the menu. The fresh baked goods, signature casual eats – fried-to-order beignets, Fri-yay Cruffin, Daily Quiche and Pies, Stuff-Your-Own Buttermilk Biscuits, Muff-a-letta, Barbecued Pork on a Bun, and other loaded Southern sandwiches – ensure something flavorful for every taste. Locally brewed DC beers, meads, and wines are an added bonus to tantalize the palate. Upbeat baristas satisfy caffeine-cravers with espresso drinks hand-crafted from Counter Culture coffee beans and Trickling Springs Creamery dairy. The Cortado, an inspired double-shot coffee beverage, is offered as a rediscovery of Guas’ Cuban cultural and culinary heritage.
Once your morning is off to a great start, check back in throughout the day for artisanal fare and a range of locally brewed beers, meads, and wines.
