The Anacostia Arts Center is a community space that includes art galleries, shops, a black box theater, and a lounge. It is a sleek and modern space with friendly staff that is a great place to camp out and work for a few hours. Art-drenaline 365 Café aims to provide tasty and nutritious food as well as employment for the local community. I really liked it. When I first went, they were still very new and were working on

getting their espresso drinks online. I had their regular coffee, which was decent, though nothing special. My sandwich was delicious, though. I ordered a tomato, bacon, and cheddar sandwich on texas toast that came with a really nicely-done side salad. A couple of the other customers around me had ordered smoothies, which looked tasty as well. The staff is very friendly. Art-drenaline 365 Café is a good place to work with a laptop in its own right, or you can take your coffee to the lounge space in the front portion of the Anacostia Arts Center. The cafe’s space is sleek and well decorated with (as one might expect) artwork.  12674972_10153948471803011_2085079369_o

It’s all you can eat for $21.95, including a hot food buffet, a waffle station and an omelet station. It makes for a great getaway from the packed brunch spots of 14th Street and it’s fun to take a walk around Anacostia beforehand or after to admire the neighborhood’s beautiful historic architecture and see Frederick Douglass’s house.
