Tryst writes: Right in the center of our nation’s capital, Tryst stands in stark contrast to the suburban culture and coffee chains that proliferate the country. We’re a single location, owned and operated by the same couple that started it in 1998. No, our silverware doesn’t always match, and we don’t have 75 different kinds of trademarked, pre-made caramel-nilla-frapp-a-ccino-supremas.
What we do have is a commitment to serving the community specialty coffee and espresso drinks made by skilled baristas, craft cocktails made with reference to the classics and incorporating fresh and interesting ingredients, fine pastries baked daily by our sister restaurant, and sandwiches, salads and small plates that incorporate flavors from around the world.
Quick Tips: Great chilin' out place for a first or blind date. Considered the living room for DC. Has free WiFi during the week (not the weekend). Order animal crackers with your coffee.
