"My wife and I noticed this place yesterday and stopped in for coffee and some delicious baked goods for breakfast. It's on the corner of Sherman and Florida. It looks like a great (and locally owned) addition to the neighborhood and has a super-friendly staff and welcoming space. From Noah (the owner):
The Blind Dog Cafe is pop-up cafe located at 944 Florida Ave. DC, NW-in Darnell's bar during the day. Feels like a living-room and serving amazing espresso, great food, and WiFi.

We open from 7 AM-4 PM Monday-Friday and 8-5 PM on the weekends.
We are serving the award winning PT's Coffee, Rishi Teas, house-made sodas, jams, and baked goods from Black Strap Baking Co. and incredible sandwiches and salads. We also do some sweet catering. 
Here is what some of the people in the community have to say about us: Scoutmob and 365 DC
