The second location of the popular Dupont Circle shop opened in the spring with a vastly different feel than the original. Credit the international clientele from the nearby World Bank for the bar-height tables and espresso bar so customers can sip their espressos and leave in short order. Another factor is this location's controversial edict: No laptops are allowed.
A small second level has five tables for those who want to take a meeting or sit down to enjoy Filter's signature Aussie-born flat-white, a version of a latte with less milk.
Monday-Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.
