Why Your New Favorite Coffee Shop Should Be Hill Valley in Columbia Heights

September 16, 2016

TGIF. What better way to celebrate than heading over to Columbia Heights' Hill Valley coffee shop for the last weekday caffeine pick-me-up?  No better way, I tell you.

A quaint little charmer located on Central Ave, this shop has the best vintage vibes around.  Teapots of all shapes, sizes, and colors adorn the shelves, and when you buy a mug (they're adorable), you get a free cup of coffee (that's my kind of deal).  Not to mention, on every table is a different set of unique salt and pepper shakers that include a pair of kittens (adorable...I mean, come on, you can't say no to kittens).

Their menu is chock full of delicious drinks - both hot and cold - and if you're feeling hungry, definitely check out their food menu (the pancakes sound amazing, though this round, I just treated myself to an afternoon chai).

The best part about Hill Valley?  It's neighbors with vintage shop Zamore - and by neighbors, I mean you just step right through the cafe, down a step, and you're in a retro timewarp of the best trinkets you could dream of (more on that to come later).  Sip and shop, and pick up a unique treasure or two.  It's definitely worth taking a stroll around.

So whether you're looking for a new study spot, want to enjoy this beautiful fall weather at one of their outdoor cafe tables, or just want to grab a coffee to go, Hill Valley is the perfect place for you.  Check 'em out when you get a chance!
