Over the weekend, the Frozen Tropics blog broke news that H Street’s flagship coffee shop, Sova Espresso and Wine, would close this month.
Now, the Washingtonian brings an update that the owners of Biergarten Haus will reopen the shop, with some updates:
If you’re lamenting the recent loss of Sova coffee shop at 1359 H Street, Northeast, fear not: Aaron McGovern and Arturas Vorobjovas will reopen it as H Street Coffeehouse and Cafe as early as Monday, February 18. (Sova closes on the 17th.)
In the morning, customers can expect freshly baked muffins, oatmeal, and breakfast sandwiches. Later in the day, they can eat in the cafe or pop in for grab-and-go items. Panini, seasonal salads, and kid-friendly fare are all in the plan. McGovern will also feature a rotating selection of his own house-made soups—beef and barley, chicken noodle—as well as curried stews and vegetarian offerings. There are no plans to serve alcohol.
