In addition to being owned the vibe is great, the coffee is great! And the staff is genuinely friendly and checks on you. Definitely recommend!

Great coffee and the food is excellent, too. The foul is particularly good – best I've had in the DC area – and can't wait to go back and try some other items. Just an all around good spot to get a coffee and a bite to eat.

Great coffee, and great food, too. Best foul I've had in the DMV. Overall a great experience and the staff/owners seem lovely. Go!

Laid back neighborhood cafe near Eastern Market with sizable menu of coffee, pastries, breakfast and some vegetarian Ethiopian fare at reasonable prices. Ample seating includes couches, bar and tables with a nice view of Pennsylvania Ave. Reliable wifi on top of it all.

What's the Hype?

You walk in and notice lots of light, tables and counter space. “Why Hype?” you ask. Proprietor Samuel Mengista says, “It’s the name we came up with to express the effect of the coffee.” Mengista and his fiancée Hanna Tesfamicael opened Hype Café to provide a theme which meets the needs of our customers. Our goal is to become known as the best café on the Corner of Capitol Corner!
