Rare Bird Coffee Roasters in Falls Church

Rare Bird Coffee Roasters 

Order a seasonal honey-lavender latte over ice this summer at Rare Bird in the heart of Falls Church. Tables fill up fast in the diminutive storefront, but the service is thoughtful and there are boxes of toys and games to occupy the kids while you wait for your tea to steep or house-roasted pour-over to appear on the counter. Co-owners Lara Berenji and Bryan Becker opened less than a year ago and recently added made-to-order sandwiches to the food menu, alongside treats from Village Sweet Bakery, Acme Pie, Republic Kolache and other local artisans.
