The anticipation is over, a new locally owned espresso bar, illume, opened its doors today. Located right across from the Metro, on the ground floor of the new condo building, illume is a great, cozy alternative to the Bridgehead further down the street. We had vanilla lattes, presented beautifully, which tasted amazing. While I am a die hard Bridgehead fan, I think illume is well situated (not too close to any other coffee shops) and offers a product that is unique and different. I look forward to returning!
Take the time to check them out!
