Emissary is a coffeehouse, bar, and cafe located in Washington DC's historic Dupont Circle neighborhood, just below Dupont Circle Yoga.  


We believe in sustainable ingredients, and "fika" - the Swedish notion taking a moment to have coffee, slow down, and contemplate on your own, or to gather with friends, and savor the moment. We believe in community and equality, and our space is a place for people of all backgrounds to unwind and connect.

Our coffeehouse features selections from Counter Culture, our beer and cocktail menu is local and mid-atlantic centric, our wine list global. Our menu is vegetable forward with vegan-friendly options - but omnivores need not worry, we have a great selection of rich baked goods, artisanal cheeses, charcuterie, and small plates.
