Regulars at the Jolt ‘n Bolt at 18th and T Streets, NW, had a jolt this morning. A completely new staff was behind the counter. JnB is probably the closest thing we have to an East Village café. The outdoor patio is ideal for reading the Times with a smoothie and a bagel on a sunny day. It’s never crowded in the morning, and they open earlier than most other cafés. They also have real bagels. The new manager assured me that Helen is on vacation and that the new staff is only filling in while she is away.
