WASHINGTON, DC. - Unless you’re lucky enough to have time to sidle up to a bar and take advantage of some happy-hour oysters, the 3 pm hunger slump is pretty depressing. Your options are likely not too different from the grab-and-go chains you hit for your morning coffee. Daniella Senior and Juan Coronado are out to change that with Colada Shop. The Miami-style joints in Sterling and on DC’s 14th Street corridor serve a Cuban-accented lineup of coffee, cocktails, sandwiches, and snacks with Starbucks-like efficiency. I’d tear into a bag of custardy mushroom croquetas ($3.50 for two), the béchamel-based fritters, over a stale cranberry muffin any day.
