DCist is reporting that Mocha Hut has closed. We agree with the bloggers that its brunch was super awesome and relatively cheap. It literally was one of two decent options in the corridor. It was always Mocha Hut or Busboys and Poets for brunch. This will surely mean the lines at Busboys will be that much longer.  I wonder why they went out of business considering that the U Street coffee shop always seemed busy (at least on weekends). DCist writes:

“A notice posted on the door this morning reads simply, “Mocha Hut is closed. We sincerely thank you for all of our support,” and is ironically posted only a few feet away from a plea for votes in the Washington City Paper’s Best of D.C. awards.”

Sad.

The Washington Business Journal reports that another coffee shop will be taking Mocha Hut’s place. But what are the odds that its egg specials will be as tasty and as cheap?
