Coffeeshop by morning, social scene in the evening

The Dupont Circle underground trolley, operated from 1949 – 1963, was a commuter train for residents, but was paused when cars became popular. We were captivated by the former trolley station and its entrance on Massachusetts Avenue, steps from The Embassy Row Hotel which is why we’re known as Station Kitchen & Cocktails. 

The space has been unknown by most... until recently. Today, the nonprofit Arts Coalition for the Dupont Underground (ACDU) whose members and supporters include artists, designers, community leaders, and business people are transforming the forgotten 75,000 square foot space below Washington, D.C.’s famous Dupont Circle into a cultural destination.

Station Kitchen & Cocktails is dedicated to changing the traditional approach to dining. We like to have fun. We want to give you a distinctive dining experience that is social and all things local. Everything we do is built on this proposition from locally made coffee to our vivacious team and social layout with playful furnishings, overlooking Embassy Row. We believe you need a neighborhood gathering place where you can start your day and end your night.

Enjoy a cup of Compass Coffee, tea, locally made pastries or a yummy house-made breakfast sandwich. We roast Compass Coffee, a local coffee company, started by two veterans. We are passionate about veterans so their story resonated with us. Not to mention, we love REAL GOOD COFFEE. Our pastries are sourced locally by Firehook. If you're in the mood for savory - devour one of our special breakfast plates with eggs, potatoes and chicken sausage or bacon - trust us, you'll love it!

In the evenings, we bring people together to enjoy bottled cocktails and shared plates. Locals and international travelers can connect over evolving menu which highlights our destination and American favorites. Station Kitchen & Cocktails stands ready to curate an authentic D.C. experience for you in Dupont Circle.



Every time you order the special of the day, 25 cents is donated to serve the district's poor and homeless through So Others Might Eat.
