Checking out Harrar Coffee & Roastery on Georgia Ave: a nice place

Inside of Harrar
The other day I stopped into Harrar Coffee & Roastery at Georgia and Harvard, a new-ish coffee shop, and I really liked it.

It's a small space with a little front patio and a few seats inside, but it's nicely appointed and clean with a lot of decorations and Ethiopian crafts and art, including some coffee sets from the country -- you just get a nice, warm feeling there. The staff is friendly as well.

I got an iced coffee which hit the spot, and while they don't have sandwiches or bigger fare, they do have lots of pastries and such to snack on. The coffee is, I believe, mostly from Ethiopia (Harar is a coffee region there.)

The spot gets good reviews on Yelp too, and is open until 7 or 8 pm everyday, which is great. If I lived closer, I'd definitely go there a lot.

They're at 2904 Georgia Ave NW, open Mon-Fri 6am-8pm, Sat 7am-8pm, and Sun 7am-7pm. They have a Facebook page too.

Have you been?

I live right near there, and I really like it. While you're over there, you should check out the little hole in the wall Ethiopian place on Georgia called Kokeb. I think it's better than the Ethiopian places on 9th/U, and it's cheap, too.
