Great location, awesome espresso, a nice constant buzz of other working humans, and a communal table with enough room for you, your laptop, and your massive mug of liquid life: Victrola in Capitol Hill checks all the boxes. Plus, in the summer, they have air conditioning - a must for when a heat wave strikes and you’d rather your iced vanilla latte (theirs is great, by the way) not melt into a puddle of sadness the second you get it.
