St Elmos Coffee Pub Alexandria
2300 Mt Vernon Avenue, 22301
"Chances are that if it happens in Del Ray, it passes through St. Elmo's Coffee Pub.
Opened in 1996, this coffee bar and eatery supplies the neighborhood with plenty of baked goods (low-fat muffins being the specialty) and a large dose of caffeine. Sandwiches and lunchtime fare are also available along with a variety of sodas, smoothies and other bottled drinks.
With walls decorated by local artists and a bevy of seating (including a section for children), the warm atmosphere has made St. Elmo's a community meeting place and a common venue for frequent live-music performances."
