In late January, we posted that Calabash Tea Bar signed a lease in Brookland to open a second location. Now we know that the cafe will be occupying the storefront at 12th and Evarts NE. We really love the hummingbird and red hibiscus mural, the abundance of plants on the patio and that the location will bring even more foot traffic to the stretch of businesses at that end of 12th Street. We learned a bit more about what to expect from the cafe, which specializes in hand-blended teas, from this Eater DC article:
Amen hopes to open the new community-centric spot on Tuesday, May 8, the day the Shaw location turns three — and also her birthday. The new location is projected to operate from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily; regular programming will include neighborhood meetings and wellness events.
Sounds great! Calabash Tea Bar will be located at 2701 12th Street, NE.
