Coffee Haven


Comfort and coffee can be found in Melody a lovely little coffee shop in Mount Vernon. Located a block or so from the Washington Monument, Melody is as sweet as its name. I am delighted to have stumbled upon this quaint coffee house.0126191010

I ordered a Colombian Cappuccino which was made with 1850 Thread coffee espresso and Nela raw unprocessed panela. The  staff was kind and friendly and took the time to explain to me about panela, which was something  that was new to me. Panela is whole cane sugar which is handcrafted by boiling and evaporating sugarcane juice. I’m probably not explaining it exactly right, but I can tell 0126191019_hdryou it was the best cappuccino I’ve ever had.

Melody Cafe showcases local artist and serves cocktails as well as coffee. It’s like my dream come true! The cafe has a happy hour from 5-7PM on weeknights. I’ll have to top in one evening for that. 0126191006

Melody Cafe has been a great start to the week and I hope your Monday has been just as good!
