The Wydown Coffee Bar is Chad and Alex McCracken’s first venture. For now it is a pop-up at 1320 U Street NW until their space at the Louis on 14th and U Street is ready.  The McCracken brothers decided to go this route as a way of creating brand recognition, building a customer base and becoming a part of the neighborhood; they already live in the neighborhood but now they are getting to know their customers.

The Wydown pop-up opened this past weekend. The name comes from St. Louis, their hometown.

For now they are serving Kaldi’s Coffee, PT’s and Intelligentsia.  Offering tea and pastries from Pattiserie Poupon. Once moved to their new space their offerings will grow and they hope they can start roasting their own coffee as well.

The Wydown Coffee Bar is open Monday to Saturday from 7 am  to 2 pm and weekends from 8 am to 2 pm.
