Get Some Work Done Over a Strong Cup of Coffee at Misha’s

There are tons and tons of cafes in a place like Alexandria, and sometimes choosing just one can seem overwhelming. Located just over four miles from The Esplande apartments, Misha’s is a local coffeehouse serving those living and working in Old Town Alexandria.

Not like many of the chain coffee houses you see in big cities, Misha’s certainly gives off the independent coffeehouse vibe. The coffee at Misha’s is roasted in-house, and the baked goods are home made. Misha’s is open every day from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. and has lots of seating for those looking to camp out and get some work done. The spot is made up of three rooms, and the main room features a long counter top where guests can order their drinks. The shop is always playing pure jazz music in the background, optimal for long bouts of concentration.
