Close proximity to campus, numerous coffee and food options, and its warm and inviting environment are just a few of the reasons why Philz is a great option for GW students.

6. La Colombe in Farragut West 

La Colombe is an underrated yet great choice to grab a quick coffee for when you're in a rush and in need of a good caffeine fix. If you're heading towards the mall or planning to ride the metro, La Colombe is a perfect choice. La Colombe is known for its draft latte, which I would highly recommend as it tastes super fresh and comes straight from a tap!
