The Java Shack

N. Arlington's The Java Shack

Our first retail location and indie coffee shop, “Arlington’s Original Coffee House” has been a fixture in the Courthouse area of North Arlington for the past twenty years. Ranked in 2016 as “Best Coffee Shop” in the D.C. region by Washington City Paper, “The Shack” has been featured for numerous awards in The Washington Post, The Washington Times, Washingtonian Magazine, and other publications. It’s always focused on sustainably-sourced, locally-roasted coffee and offering a gathering place for all ages and walks of life.

In 2015, we bought The Java Shack to integrate coffee roasting and brewing, and build on a tradition of outstanding customer service. Ask for a “Dale Special,” named after original owner Dale Roberts, or a “Korinator,” named after a long-time barista.
