Let's kick off Monday with some caffeinated news, shall we? Capitol Hill coffee shop Peregrine Espresso will open a second location at 1718 14th St. NW, the owners announced Friday on their blog.

"It’s going to be many months before we open but we are very excited to be joining that vibrant retail and dining corridor and couldn’t keep it in any longer," they write.

The address was home to Flowers on 14th, which recently moved into the old Cafe Salsa space a few doors down.

The original Peregrine opened on Capitol Hill in August 2008 and has since become a neighborhood favorite. The shop serves Counter Culture coffee and espresso, baked goods and such. Peregrine's iced coffee got a shout-out in the August issue of Food & Wine.
