A Cuban Coffee Shop Is Coming to Hyattsville

A Cuban coffee shop is slated to open this fall in the Vie Towers apartment building at University Town Center in Hyattsville.

Vie Café is part of a broader $5 million renovation of the building, which was bought by investors from Miami and Dubai several months ago.

“Vie Café is meant to be inspiring and welcoming and will be open for both residents and the public,” Joana Filgueiras of Vie Management told the Hyattsville Wire. “The entire back wall and counter space will have beautiful Mexican tiles, there will be plenty of space for guests to sit, whether they want to study/ work, or to just chill, relax, have a good time.”

The cafe will serve Cuban coffee, through a partnership with a woman-owned brand in Miami called Grand Havana Coffee. It will also serve Art of Tea teas and food from local vendors, including baked goods, sandwiches, salads and vegan options.

The cafe will add to the options within walking distance for residents of University Town Center and the growing number of high-end apartment buildings nearby, including the soon-to-be renovated Metro II building down the street.

The initial plan is for the cafe to open in September, which would coincide with the beginning of the school year for many of the students who live in the building.

    Great news. A much needed addition to a generally lackluster area. I hope the new owners will take steps to pick up on maintenance (the UTC region has become shabbier and shabbier under the current regime) and bring in more tenants like the Vie Cafe.
    It would be nice if they would turn on the fountain again. It is the focal point of the area and is a delightful attraction in the summer.
    It has been dry for the last two summers, for no apparent reason other than the miserly spirit of the current management.
