Pair Local Coffee With Acai Bowls at Vigilante Coffee
Hyattsville-based roaster Vigilante Coffee serves up artisanal java made with organic and fair-trade beans, as well as acai bowls, bagels, empanadas, and other snacks. Be sure to try one of their mochas (made with real melted chocolate!) or their strong, bold cold brew. Pair your drink with a carrot muffin or one of their warmed-up chocolate chip cookies.
The 1,400-square-foot building, formerly the home of a long-running liquor store, is streamlined to accommodate the space and the more fast-paced student and faculty crowd coming in. The main bar has two espresso machines capable of making five drinks simultaneously and space for three single-origin pour-over coffees. The interior also boasts tall ceilings, a living plant wall, and bright skylights to give an open, airy vibe.
Vigilante Coffee is open daily from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
