Philz Coffee is a small San Francisco-based chain whose first East Coast location is at 1827 Adams Mill Rd NW in Adams Morgan. There was a lot of buzz surrounding the opening of Philz since it has a cult following in Cali. My friend from San Jose (who lives in Boston) was visiting DC for the weekend and was super excited to see that there was a Philz opening. I can totally see what the hype was about. While the wait can get a bit long, their drinks are delicious. Their most popular drink is the mint mojito iced coffee, which is creamy, minty, sweet and delicious. I also had their gingersnap iced coffee, which was excellent as well. I also had their butter croissant, which was actually good (I was surprised and impressed since most croissants at American coffee shops are total sh*t, especially the ones at Starbucks that come from La Boulange, another Bay Area
institution). There’s not a ton of seating, but the friendly staff, delicious drinks, and good WiFi totally make up for that.
