Saxbys Coffee is back in Dupont Circle with complimentary small cups of cold brew today.
The Philadelphia-based chain began its first day at 1303 19th St. NW this morning. The location is two doors from its old home at 1309 19th St. NW, which closed in June.
In addition to the gratis java, the coffeehouse is giving out free travel mugs to the first 10 customers it gets every hour until 6 p.m.
Jim Hilson, co-owner and general manager of the new Saxbys, said the day has turned out “absolutely amazing” so far. The coffeehouse has had several customers who were happy to see that the shop was back in business, he said.
“We love how the cafe came out, and we’re happy to be in the neighborhood,” Hilson said.
