1. Good Company Doughnuts & Café
Family-owned and operated, Good Company Doughnuts & Café is a warm and inviting café specializing in fresh, hand-cut doughnut that have locals lining up outside on weekend mornings. Good Company is owned and operated by brother-sister duo Charles and Kate, Melissa (Charles’s wife), and close family friend, Tim. When Charles settled in Northern Virginia, he immediately noticed a need for a neighborhood all-day café. Charles and Kate had always dreamed of going into business together and following in their late father’s footsteps. After Charles’s second deployment to Afghanistan, he finally convinced Kate and his wife Melissa to open their dream café. Melissa, who served the Dept. of Defense for 14 years, discovered a talent and passion for baking. The final founder, Tim Terry, spent more than 23 years as a Navy Mustang and now loves serving the Arlington community.
Good Company’s warm and comforting menu offers a lot more than just doughnuts. For breakfast, a cozy cup of Intelligentsia coffee pairs perfectly with one of the breakfast sandwiches on homemade bread or a protein bowl with eggs and veggies. Kids will find a lot to love too, including apple slices with house-made caramel sauce and gooey grilled cheese sandwiches.
