Ghosts of DC 01-20-2013 post on some history of 1700 1st St NW in Bloomingdale (currently Big Bear Cafe)

I don't recall seeing this Ghosts of DC blog post on history of the Big Bear Cafe site.

Rather cool history!

If Walls Could Talk: Big Bear Cafe

It’s Friday afternoon and we’re on the cusp of a chilly, rainy weekend. So, let me say that there’s no better place to go for a nice hot chocolate, chai or cup of joe than Big Bear. Get there early if you plan on relaxing with the paper (or iPad), because half the neighborhood will probably have the same idea.
Since I’m always in a coffee mood and want to hit up a different part of the city, my next “If Walls Could Talk” will be about the neighborhood hang out at 1700 1st St. NW.
From 1910.
