Down House began in the mind of owner Chris Cusack as a coffee shop similar to the one he'd left behind in Austin, except one with a forward-thinking cocktail program and warm yet scientific, Darwin-inspired design that belies the fact that its decorator is a real dude's dude.
Thankfully for its neighbors, the quaint little bar and restaurant on Yale Street has now evolved to include a full lunch and dinner menu, where local ingredients are key and Leprechaun cider-soaked mussels are a constant favorite.
Open from 7am-2pm, this cafe-bar-restaurant has a little bit of everything. Great comfortable Georgetown-esque vibe, delicious cappuccinos -- it's a place you can come to for great breakfast in the morning (corned beef hash or soft tacos), solid lunch in the afternoon (hamburger, sandwich, or salad), afternoon coffee, dinner (steak, seafood), and late night drinks. You could stay there all day if you wanted; it's that kind of place. Free wifi, refillable press coffee, and a good bar where you can dine solo, work on your laptop, or sip on a crafted cocktail.
