After fueling many a weekend morning and, more recently and without explanation, reducing its hours of operation, Sparkys' Espresso Café on 14th Street near S Street, NW, is slated to close. A sign on the door says that they will reopen on June 28th and 29th for a party. It also says that Sparkys' will move to another location, which they decline to disclose, and focus on vegetarian dishes. Where else can one sit in a wobbly metal chair while nursing a bitter caffe americano?
