A Guide to Cafes of Del Ray

A Guide to Cafes of Del Ray

I love drinking coffee, and lucky for me there are many cafe options for the coffee lover in Del Ray.

It all started with St. Elmo’s back in the 1990s. They were the first coffee shop on the Avenue.

In the past several years, several others have sprung up. They are not copycat cafes; they each have their own niche and personality.

The Caboose Cafe is down the street from St. Elmo’s in the heart of Mount Vernon Ave. They are a favorite of Mount Vernon Community School teachers for their proximity to the playground and they serve a great Dirty Chai as well as a red eye that will keep any teacher wide-eyed all day.

Their outdoor seating is welcoming to people who are joined by their canine friends.

Stomping Ground is just a block down from the Caboose. It is located between the Farmer’s Market and the Happy Tart. They have delicious biscuit meals as well as great coffee! The interior is lively and their community table make it a fun place to be.

At Ease Yoga Cafe (South Block) not only can you take a yoga class, but you can relax with a cup of coffee. They also have fresh juice, smoothies, and bowls. They are definitely a healthy option.
