Germantown's precious DrinkHaus crams so many good things in one little space. The layout and atmosphere transport you to the little stand-and-have-a-coffee places in Europe, and then there's the bleu cheese and fig jam panino with crunchy garlicky chips and a sweet little chocolate-covered toffee for dessert.
One more thing to love: the beverages, like this elderflower soda, come in compostable cups. It's contentment in a cup. Who would have thought a quick stop for a drink could be so uplifting?
