Good pizza and friendly service? Count me in Jack. Who is Jack you say? I too have no clue.
We got three different slices (variety is the spice of life, something my English teacher used to always say): the eggplant and bell pepper one (sorry don't remember the name), the one with lox and arugula (yet again), and the one with white sauce and mushrooms (surprise)! Each had a very clean taste and used fresh ingredients. I particularly liked the one with mushrooms because the cheesy white sauce was amazing. On a side note, the ginger ale sparkling water was to die for...yum...looked like I was drinking beer on the street as I carried the glass bottle (just thought you might want to know).
Almost forgot-got thee Caprese salad as well (refreshing and delicious with balsamic vinegar). The mozzarella chunks were big!
I came here twice, once just to have some dessert along with coffee, and a second time to eat a quick breakfast. The last time I was here, this space was occupied by Serious Pie, so I'm getting a feeling that this is a hard to please space.

It's located right inside the Starbucks Reserve Roastery, so they have a steady stream of tourists to serve. Just like the Roastery, it's sleek and modern. There is a tempting display of breads, pastries, and flatbreads, depending on the time you show up. Seating can be hard to come by, because of the large amount of people who stream in and out of the Roastery.

For cakes, I got to try their CHEESECAKE and TIRAMISU. I thought they were both delicious, until later when I looked at the prices. Thank god I didn't have to pay for those cakes, because they were $9-$10 a slice! Jeez, it's not like they were something special or unique.
+ EGGS WITH PORCINI ($9.75): This was part of their breakfast, and definitely more worth the price. It was two eggs in porcini sauce, which is basically tomato sauce with a bunch of mushrooms, served with a side of crostini. Though filling and satisfyingly savory, it was also quite salty.

Everyone working there was very friendly, but during breakfast, my eggs took forever to come out. They apologized many times for the wait, though.
Really, don't feel obligated to eat here if you're visiting the Roastery. There are a lot of other places to eat around here.

I have been here a few times and each time the place is very vibrant! It is inside a large Starbucks in the heart of Capitol Hill. The Princi food is really good. The pizzas are fresh and flavorful, the desserts one cannot resist!
We choose three slices of different pizzas, what I love about it is they cut the pizzas in little squares, so it's easily eaten and shared this way. Love it! I love crust and bread and this place does not disappoint , if you enjoy crusty fresh bread .
I saw tomato soup on someone's order I will try that next time with the focaccia.
I've had the tiramisu here, bomb! This time we tried some yummy dark chocolate pistachio goodness, omg! Obviously the desserts are far out so save room for that.
The service is wonderful even on a busy Sunday night! The bakers , people working behind the bakery counter and the bar are all so nice.
I don't know if the cocktail bar is part is part of Princi or Starbucks but it perfectly compliments the vibe and the pizzas and dessert. They have a decent wine list and coffee cocktail galore.
You can sit anywhere with all this yummy res, just be prepared to scope out a spot because it gets busy.
Overall a great social atmosphere for locals and visitors.
Princi is a coffee lovers delight.
I work closeby and hence a regular at this place and it has never failed to amaze me with its exquisite selection of coffee's and wines.
Its a starbucks collaboration but seems like a distant rich cousin at the same time. The food choices are really good with the small size pizza slices along with their desserts to die for. My favorite is the cream puff but you can choose as per your choice like cheeecakes or the chocolate ganache. The variety of the pizza spreads are really good for both vegetarians and non vegetarians. They also have an happy hour on weekdays from 5-7 where you can get a drink and snacks for 5$.
Last but not the least by any stretch, their fresh baked breads are too good to resist. The staff is courteous and provides their recommendations as well. You can enjoy a great evening with friends outside sitting around the fire pit with a glass of wine and long talks.
I rarely get coffee from Starbucks but .....I came by the Starbucks Reserve & Roastery the other day to check out the new Italian bakery inside called Princi. It was very crowded, kinda of a cluster.
It's where Serious Pie used to be, so it's to the right when you walk in. As mentioned, it's a bit of a cluster as you approach, but there is no line, just go up to the counter and someone will help you (waiving your arms up in the air with cash in your hand will help).
We came to visit here in the afternoon so they had a lot of lunch selections available from salads, pizzas, desserts etc. We opted to get a slice of pizza (square) and got the ?????........ Speck & Scarmoza? Kind of like prosciutto with potato pizza. Crust is like a focaccia bread, it was real tasty, just cheesy enough, delicious toppings and a pretty darn good slice of square pizza. They will cut it up in 6 little squares for you to enjoy a bite size or share amongst your loved ones. We also got a chocolate chip cookie for later, that was pretty good too.
Helpful tip, when you order from whomever helps you, that same staff member will ring you up and bring out your food to you. Just go have a seat or find an empty spot somewhere, THEY WILL FIND YOU! Not sure how the staff remembers your face with all the people, but they do. Nice little touch.
Prices are on the higher side, I think my pizza slice and cookie was like $13, so check between the cushions in the couch for some extra coins when stopping by.
Overall, it was pretty good & tasty, very crowded on a weekend, they do walk around giving free samples of breads etc, staff was friendly & helpful as well.
Glad I stopped by, good place to check out when in the area. Not sure if this will be my go-to place to get bread but at least I know a place for some tasty breads.
