Mid-City Caffe to Open This Saturday

This evening, we received word that the long-awaited Mid-City Caffe, located in a second floor space above Miss Pixies on 14th Street between Corcoran and R, will officially open for business this Saturday at 8:00 AM.

Mid-City is clearly attempting to put the focus on its product: the spot will serve only Counter Culture Coffee, using either a French press of pour-over brewing method. The cafe will also offer a selection of fresh pastries, cakes and breakfast items from local bakers.

There has also been a focus on the design of the space, which will also feature outdoor seating. According to the release, individuals visiting the cafe will encounter designer Mick Mier's "a cozy coffee house that draws upon art deco motifs and the vintage auto industry."

Mid-City Caffe will be open from 6a - 8p Monday-Friday, 8a - 8p on Saturday, and 8a - 7p on Sunday. More information can be found at their website,

I didn't get a chance to stop in during Dog Days, and have been eager and waiting since. This is sounding very good, esp. French press. For me, it's been nearly two decades of waiting and hoping for this neighborhood to percolate; things are looking and tasting pretty good.

Stopped in on Saturday morning. The place is quite cute but poorly organized and most people were left waiting for their coffee and pastry for 15+ minutes. I ended up grabbing a rouge iced americano that nobody claimed because i was in a hurry. I'll definitely stop back though - the first day is always the hardest. I do hope that they post a menu - all they had on Saturday were a few menu print-outs on paper scattered on the counter.

This place was a total disappointment. Food blech, service worse. Try harder.
