About Us

We aim higher than the standard to deliver quality and vibrant flavors. Capitol Café was founded by a husband and wife team who had a vision to introduce east African flavors to the American consumer.  We are a gourmet coffee shop serving coffee, spiced Somali tea using 100% gourmet roasted Arabica beans and authentic Kenya tea.

Our mission is not only to intrigue the palate of our customers with rich flavors like cardamom, cloves and fresh ginger but to also provide a place to retreat from the everyday life and connect with yourself and others.

Capitol Café has created a menu filled with signature items from our award-wining savory crepe and tandoori chicken panini all served with spiced chai tea. The menu is prepared simply with fresh and exotic East African and Asian spices.  Our signature spiced tea is served all day paired with your choice of sambuusa, plain or flavored crepe. Capitol Café is an ideal place to meet friends, discover new flavors or unwind at the end of the day.
