Best Grocery Store

Harris Teeter
1350 Potomac Ave. SE
When Harris Teeter arrived on Capitol Hill in 2008, the neighborhood was already served by several Safeways and a slew of corner stores. The Teets blows them all away. Plentiful parking and access to Metro, bus lines, and Bikeshare make getting there a snap; the always-manned registers and cheerful staff make shopping there an efficient pleasure. My last-milisecond request for a customized cookie cake? Filled with gusto. An accidental overcharge on Honey Nut Cheerios? Repaid with a full refund—plus the Cheerios for free. The service is so staggeringly superior to neighborhood competitors, it astonishes me to see cars in the Safeway parking lot three blocks away.
