If anyone knows of a coffee shop or restaurant that would be a good spot I'm definitely open for ideas.
If/when folks may feel like heading back to Old Town Alexandria, I'd suggest Misha's for (best) coffee & baked goods; Hank's Oyster Bar for their namesake, as well as their (not cheap but pretty amazing/authentic) lobster roll sammiches. On the cheap, there's Austin Grill for fairly decent Tex Mex. For better Tex Mex, there's Cafe Poblano, but that's down the road just a bit in the Del Ray neighborhood -- also a cool place to hang out.
