cafe or coffee house to work for 3 hours in Chantilly or Centreville?

Thanks for the Eggspectations link...I've got a week of camp so will def. try it and report back. I don't have issues with Starbucks other than I like to try to support local, mom and pop businesses if/when I can.

Frozen Custard

I like both Nielsen's and Milwaukee - if I were to choose between the two, I would choose Nielsen's b/c it is creamier and richer-tasting...and they make decent sandwiches too.

One of my children will be going to a 3-hour camp in Chantilly in the mornings. I'd like to hang out at a cafe to work on my laptop (wifi preferred but not necessary since I am working on a report) that serves good coffee and some kind of breakfast fare (not a big breakfast eater so even a muffin will do - if it's good) than head back home to work since I'll lose 40 min RT and quality time to work while the kid's in camp! I've read about Java Dave's but a review on Yelp! (http://www.yelp.com/biz/java-daves-co...) noted it's more of an icecream parlor atmosphere - and loud (I need some quiet to work).

Am I dreaming such a place exists? Or will I just have to hit a place like Manhattan Bagel or Starbucks and then go to the library?

New Year's Day Brunch in DC

I've experienced the same dilemma - try OpenTable - I know Hook is offering brunch...
