11:30am-8:00pm lines up with a 8 hour work day. Maybe they were reluctant to expand to two shifts.

Wait, what? A coffee shop that's open in the morning? Will wonders never cease? Maybe they should try this incredible strategy out at the S. Royal location. Every morning when I walk by on my way to get coffee somewhere else I just have to shake my head....

Me too Scot. Having moved here from Portland, Or, I'm 100% confused by a coffee shop not being open by 6 each morning. I've actually shown it to visiting friends because they were incredulous. One of them took a picture of the 'open at 11' sign and posted it to her Facebook page. She got something like 2 dozen comments laughing about it. Granted, they were from coffee addicts back in Portland, where coffee is taken seriously, but still. I guess the east coast just doesn't get it.

The Del Ray stroller mommies aren't out at 6AM.

But the King Street and Braddock Road metro bound commuters are. Both Commonwealth and Mt. Vernon Ave are teeming around 6:30. I should, I'm one of them! Then you have the Maury parents doing drop off between 7:30 and 8:15. They're missing plenty of traffic. In the name of what? Two hours of minimum wage?
