(Updated at 4:10 p.m.) A dog-friendly cafe with pour-over coffee, sandwiches and a patio is set to open next month in Near Northeast.
Mia’s Coffeehouse is slated to welcome customers for the first time in mid-May, said Jeff Lee, who will run the cafe with his wife, Jenohn. Mia’s, at at 101 15th St. NE, will take over the former location of Bella Market.
The menu will feature nine breakfast and lunch sandwiches, including The Damario, with beef barbacoa and Manchego cheese, and The Christian, with Vermont cheddar cheese and roasted cherry tomatoes. The sandwiches are named after family members and will cost between $6 and $8 each.
The coffeehouse also will serve espresso, lattes and other hot drinks, in addition to pour-over coffee. Lee said he’s looking to have “really premium coffee” from roasters like Vigilante Coffee in Hyattsville. Prices for coffee will range from $2 to $5 each, Lee said.
Lee, who named the coffeehouse after his daughter, said he hopes his cafe will be like another home for locals. The cafe will have seating for about 20 people inside and 25 people outside, and treats for dogs.
“What we’re going to provide for the area is an escape,” he said.
Mia’s will be open Monday through Thursday from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. On Fridays and Saturday, the coffeehouse will serve customers between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m. It will be closed on Sundays.
