Vote: What’s the best coffee shop in Washington?

Placeholder while article actions load

We're a few weeks into a breezy, brisk Washington fall, a season that practically begs you to spend lazy mornings sipping cortados at one of the city's umpteen excellent coffee shops.

Fall is also when we ask Washington Post readers which area coffee shop ranks as their current favorite. In our first year, Arlington's Northside Social took the crown; last year, it was Blind Dog Cafe.

It's time to vote: Who has the best brews? The most proficient latte artisan? The best cushy sofas and croissants? Pick your current favorite coffee shop below, or tell us who we left off in the comments. We'll announce the winner later this week.

Update: The poll is now closed.
