Tibet Shop to Become a Coffee Shop

3213 Georgia Avenue destined to become a coffee shop.

3213 Georgia Avenue destined to become a coffee shop.

Here’s some great news for the neighborhood. According to Metro Investment Properties, who  alerted me via Twitter, the former Tibet Shop is in the midst of a build-out to become a coffee shop. Located at the corner of Georgia Avenue and Keefer Place, NW — and with a nice sidewalk area suitable to outdoor seating — it would be a great location of a coffee shop. It is also nicely located between Harrar Coffee to the south and Qualia Coffee to the north.

I doubt there will be anyone who doesn’t prefer a neighborhood coffee shop over Petworth Liquors which a few short months ago was hoping to move to this location.

    Now this is fantastic news! I did like the Tibet shop, but it seemed an odd fit for our neighborhood. A coffee shop is much better and if they do it right – I am sure it will be a hit.

    Great news. Lets hope they are as good as Qualia but that’s a lot to ask for.


  8. Petworth Liquors will be closing soon to be replaced by another large apartment building. With 3 apartment buildings within a stone’s throw of the property I am assuming that the coffee shop will do well.

  12. […] had closed, we learned that the building on the southeast corner of Keefer and Georgia Avenue was destined to be a coffee shop. Since then, there has been little activity to suggest that this dream would become a reality. […]
