Welcome to Modern Times Coffeehouse at Politics & Prose Bookstore, operated by locally-owned Coup d’Etat Coffee Company. The coffeehouse’s intimate space and distinctive atmosphere always features a diverse clientele of neighbors, writers, book lovers, and families. Our quality food and beverages draw locals as well as regular customers from the entire DC metropolitan area.
Since becoming caretakers in 2006 of the decade-old coffeehouse inside Politics & Prose Bookstore, Coup d’Etat Coffee Co. has revamped the menu, improved the interior with rotating art exhibits, and introduced live performances with our weekly Open Mic. We offer limited wireless internet access to customers, and the perfect environment for reading, studying, and especially conversation and discussion.
See you soon!
