“Great place for a coffee, tea, and a pastry”
Review of Kaldi's Coffee Bar

Kaldi's Coffee Bar
Price range: US$3 - US$10
Description: We are much more than just one of the coffee shops in Silver Spring. We are Kaldi's Social Club. This is the very same attitude that has led to a brand new Kaldi's. We will always have the best coffee found anywhere in the area. That is our core, our foundation. But any good foundation provides room to grow, and that is exactly what led to a tripling of our floor space. Kaldi's remains a comforting oasis of creativity and community, where flavorful coffee the world over perfumes the open room all morning and afternoon long. In the evening, Kaldi's welcomes you to delight in custom-made cocktails as you relax in our cozy lounge. Or maybe you'd like to have a fresh-from-scratch, made-to-order dinner as you relax on the rooftop deck.

Reviewed 14 June 2014

This is a nice place for coffee, a great choice of teas, and unique, French-style sweets. There is a limited choice of regular food like sandwiches, etc.

Love the people, love the coffee...BUT, they should not have McDonalds hours for breakfast sandwiches.

“Stylish and welcomed cafe”
Reviewed 15 March 2014

No place can have too many coffee shops and this one is well-located. It is off the beaten path but has a refreshing style, both relaxing, serene and sophisticated all at the same time. The coffee is rich and satisfying and the location gives the east side of downtown a place to hang out.

“Great, unexpected find”
Reviewed 30 December 2013 via mobile

Returned a car to hertz and stumbled upon this little gem. Opened a few months ago, this shop was hopping on Monday morning with locals. Glad to see folks supporting independent local businesses. The pastries were out of this world - can't go wrong. The vegan scone was delicious and didn't even taste vegan. The drip coffee and caramel macchiato were fantastic as well. The decor inside is modern and hip. Very comfortable and quieter and cleaner than your average Starbucks. Free wifi too, but I didn't get a chance to try it out. One of the things I noted was how heavy the chairs are. Sometimes I think folks don't think through practicality of design. On the plus side I think the furniture will hold up and hide Knicks and scratches. We didn't see any children in here but I think the furniture will be wonderful, as kids won't be able to drag the furniture around and the furniture is so heavy you can't hear it scrape the floor. All in all, a fantastic find on a Monday morning. We will be back.

“Amazing baked goods and pastries”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

Stopped by quite by accident after picking up a car at Hertz around the corner. This is a newly opened coffee bar & pastry shop. Set in an older building with modern touches. The staff go out of their way to offer suggestions on the coffees and the stunningly created pastries. Everything is made on the premises and look out of this world. The coffee is delicious too. The seating areas provide customers with varied seating from the communal table to wooden chairs and leather couches. There's even a fireplace which helps set the mood on a cold day. I'm from out of the area, but will make a point to return on my next trip to the DC area for sure. This is an independent small business.
