This community-centric coffee shop specializes in high-quality coffee. Located along Columbia Pike, Idido is cozy gathering place for good food and great coffee. Sofonios and Mesfin come from Ethiopia, where coffee ceremony is an integral part of social and cultural life. In Ethiopia, an invitation to attend a coffee ceremony is considered a mark of friendship or respect. They set out to bring this piece of home to Arlington in the form of a coffee shop. In addition to their extensive coffee menu, Idido serves breakfast pastries, sandwiches and healthy lunch dishes. The Avocado Toast is a big hit, prepared with a freshly cooked egg on top and hints of lemon. Sofonio’s go-to order? A Pesto Chicken sandwich on sourdough bread and a Dirty Chai, hot or iced.
