Colada Shop D.C. Cuban food

Colada Shop D.C. — oh emmm, what an adorable, satisfying spot!

I can’t believe I’d never been here before.  Meanwhile, Alexi (IG-hubs) has been to every single place ever (EYE ROLL).

Colada Shop was everything we needed for a lazy Saturday afternoon.  Ah, sleep till noon; get dolled up; pop over to hipster hood of 14th St.; pet cute fluffy dogs on the sidewalk; stuff face with Cuban deliciousness at Colada Shop; buy new plant at ACE hardware down the street..

The cuuute space, with it’s indoor seating that opens out to the front terrace, and its upstairs lounge/rooftop garden, is so presh!  I wanted to enjoy the noms from all corners of this 14th St. corridor watering hole, so we bounced around the vibrant spot to take in the rooftop view, couches by heat-lamps, and the indoor/outdoor countertop.  The new fall menu is alllll of the yum, mmkkerr?!…

The new seasonal fall menu:

  • Butternut squash & sofrito cheese EMPANADA
  • Rice, garlicky kale & mushrooms CROQUETA

I tried to capture the yums and the cuteness in photos, but you just have to see it and taste it for yourself…
