Tynan Coffee & Tea is now open

Looks like Tynan Coffee & Tea is open at 14th and Irving. Daily Candy has a review, which says they have wi-fi and a fireplace. There's coffee from local roaster Orinoco and lots of teas, and their menu has lots of food -- breakfast pastries, bagels, salads, sandwiches, quiche, waffles, and breakfast sandwiches and wraps. There's also wine, beer, and alcohol for coffee drinks, like Irish coffee and Amaretto. Sounds more like Cosi than Starbucks.

Sounds like a pretty cool (and locally-owned) spot to hang out and do some work or relax, especially since Starbucks is often crowded.

It does look pretty awesome. I'm looking forward to trying it.

And I would reverse your last sentence. Starbucks might look good if Tynan was too crowded. C'mon Heightsers. Lets make the locally owned one our default coffee choice. I got nothing against Seattle, but they can do fine without your money.

Agreed! Plus Starbucks coffee often tastes burned to me.

Not to sound like an anti-chain hipster, but the only time I'd ever go to Starbucks is when Sticky Fingers is closed... nice to see we have a new homegrown option.

It seems like there's a bit of a proliferation of great local coffee shops lately, and they all have their own unique appeals. Tynan for a shiny luxury, Peregrine for incredible variety, Chinatown Coffee for a sort of charming scuzziness, Mid-City Cafe, Columbia Heights Coffee, the list goes on. Three cheers!

Can't wait to try it! I still miss Mayorga, though. They made good coffee in a unique and architecturally beautiful space.

Definitely a great spot! I took a few photos on the opening day (Friday).

Tynan is a really cool spot with great tea products. I REALLY love that its independent, locally-based, family-owned, etc. I've been twice this week!
