New coffee shop coming to corner of Georgia and Irving

Looks like there's another option for coffee in the Park View area: the other day I spotted a permit on the door of 3100 Georgia Avenue NW, which is at Irving Street, and then I chatted with a worker inside, who confirmed it would be a coffee shop. The permit says "deli, coffee shop" so maybe they'll have sandwiches and such too.

I'm always in favor of coffee shops, but this is right down the block from Colony Club, another block from Heat Da Spot and two blocks up from Harrar Coffee Roasters. Then again, Colony Club often has good crowds, so maybe another coffee shop is necessary.

I'll report back when I have more info.

Can we get a variety of useful businesses? Seriously do they have a business plan or looked at the market? Only way thwy will succeed is by driving out one of the other existing coffee shops within 3 blocks. Net zero gain for the neighborhood. Tjere are plenty of other businesses we can and will support. Please do your homework!

It does seem weird, but it's possible they just put "deli and coffee shop" when it's more of the former than the latter, or something else that sells food. It might just be a permitting thing.
