    I’m very excited to have Landrum in the neighborhood but I do feel a bit weary of having him compete with Chinatown Coffee Company, which I really do love and very much enjoy my time spent there. Hopefully the two establishments are different enough to not directly compete for my time and money.

    I would be really happy for some nice baked goods. There has been a sad lack of quality baked goods since Marvelous Market left Chinatown.

  3. Let’s hope it stays open past 8pm

  4. I am not a neighborhood resident, but I work across from Chinatown Coffee, and I think it’s pretty safe to say that a new coffeeshop in CityVista will have minimal impact on the weekday (read: nearby office workers) traffic at C.C., as the 3 block walk is largely prohibitive (and it’s also not directly on the H street drag east from Gallery Place Metro, which is where a decent amount of Chinatown’s walkup traffic seems to come from).

    It sounds a bit like this Landrum concept is more akin to a Marvelous Market (or even the old Mayorga at the Tivoli in Columbia Heights) than the high-end coffee market that Chinatown grabs.

    Whether there’s an impact on the weekend could be different, but it seems like with about 3-5,000 condo and apartment units between the two locations, that there should be enough business to go around.

    This is great news, and I agree with the last two comments. I am hoping they have a little more than just sandwiches/salads/frozen yogurt. Any timeline on when it might open?
