Love at Northside Social

Local realtor and resident Laura Rubinchuk claims to be in love with the new coffee shop Northside Social, and I can see why. The swanky venue that replaced Murky Coffee is now open and has rebuilt been to make a great use of interior space.

I don't think its fair to try to compare this new shop, founded by the same owners as Liberty Tavern, to its previous tenet Murky Coffee which closed a year ago. Northside Social has a very different feel and style, and is still a great alternative to the ubiquitous Starbucks.

This coffee shop on the very western edge of Clarendon would make for a perfect first date location. I'm sure its ample outdoor seating will be in demand when this summer warms up!

It's pretty awesome. I hear the outdoor seating area will get spruced up over time with a tree and some planters supplied by the County in the public area and some new tables with unbrella.

There is so much going on in that little place too. It's coffee and pastries, it's sandwiches for lunch, it's wine and beer into the evenings. And, last but not least - it's a bakery. I really enjoy the convienience of the bakery and hope that stays and expands.
