Vintage Cafe RIP?

Just heard that one of my fave lunch spots, Vintage Cafe at 21st and L, is closed and is being remodeled into a sports bar… bummer. Truly too good to last…

    21st and L? I’ve never even heard of this place. Is it invisible?

    Unfortunately, it almost was. It was next door to Hashi on L Street, but there was no signage outside (I’d heard that the building owner wouldn’t allow a sign, but that’s unconfirmed). The guys from Etc. turned me on to it or I probably never would have known it was there either.

    A small coffee was $1 and sandwiches started as low as $3.50. They also had pizza and a heck of a good steak sandwich.

    I’ll miss it too–they didn’t stay open very late but the coffee was good, the prices reasonable and the staff really nice. Even though it was a brand-new building it seemed like they had been there for years. I think they shared the kitchen with Stonegrill/Hashi, and kind of closed once but reopened. I’ll miss them, hopefully the people involved open another cafe somewhere nearby–and keep it open later!
