    Kyoto drip and chai latte or both must-haves here. Pair these with the hipster vibe and dedication to a perfect brew by the staff, and careful pours of Chemex coffee, and you've got a real treat.

    Probably my favorite coffee shop in Philly. They have great beans, great interior design, and it's a great place to relax or get work done. It's like an oasis in the middle of Center City.

    Espresso is fresh, bright, acidic/fruity. Couches have a hundred power outlets along the bottom - great for charging your phone.

    Their Lunar Lander espresso is AWESOME. Their house blend coffee is perfect for when you're craving a really good cup of coffee. It gets crowded during the day, but grab a seat and chill if you can.

    A great variety of coffee optima between pour over and espresso drinks. The coffee is roasted not too far away. This is a great spot for coffee and socializing with a friend.

    A must visit! Perfect ambience for hanging out with lots of comfortable seating. Sip and learn amazing pour overs from Intelligentsia and George Howell. (And features a cool bathroom, to boot.)

    Great atmosphere. Good place to settle in with coffee and your laptop if you need to work. Gets busy though and free seats are hard to come by.

    I enjoyed my chai latte, but it was hard to find a seat at 11 am on a Wednesday and NONE of the wifi networks worked for me. The many lurkers were all happy to take my spot on the couch.

    BEST. Favorite coffee shop hands down. Everyone here is super nice and patient. Every food and drink offering is perfection. Free wifi too! Also, the rotating murals are the coolest to come check out!

    They make great pour-over coffee and it's hard to find a spot on the weekends. You will find interesting design details at the store.

    Espresso is some of the best in the city. Cafe is frequently packed, so get ready for lots of people studying! Banana bread is incredible - you wouldn't believe it's gluten free.

    Great pour over coffee that is sourced and roasted by Elixr themselves. The Ethiopian blend was delicious with a caramel and fruity taste. The atmosphere is warm and the people are friendly!

    This is my favorite cafe in Philly. Since moving to their new location, there's more seating! A small but solid selection of tea and sandwiches keeps me happy and the people are friendly.

    Coffee is amazing and they have a fantastic selection of vegan pastries (the cinnamon roll is my favorite).

    I won't lie, I'm a DD coffee with cream and sugar man. The way these baristas prepare the coffee here is such a process and the end result is one of the most satisfying black coffees you'll ever have.

    The menu -- like the space -- is larger, with Intelligentsia beans joining their existing PT & Southpaw espresso blends Read more

    They used to use Intelligentsia. Now they roast their own which is still pretty great. Must do if you're in Philly.

    My favorite coffee shop in Philly, hands down! Love the giant tables, great music, , interior design, and free wifi. They also accept Pay with Square! PS: The new location looks sick!

    Tucked away on a side street off Walnut, no almond milk but you really don't want to mess with the flavor of this roast, two thumbs up!

    Priciest cup of coffee in Center City, but the hand pours are totally worth it: they bring out the subtle flavors of the varietals.

    Really good coffee, although the pour overs are quite pricey. Selection of pastries is good. I recommend getting regular drip coffee.

    Solid espresso located down a little street off Walnut. Pastries looked good but I didn’t try any cause I wasn’t that hungry. Space is a good size but every seat was occupied by people on laptops.

    A 2011 New York Times article calls this Rittenhouse Square coffee shop (with their Kansas-based small batch roasted PT’s Coffee Roasting Company beans) “Southpaw Espresso at its finest.”

    If you see a bunch of exposed brick, plaster, pipes, or even wire, it's intentional. The interior is made mostly of reclaimed materials. The bar counter is from a bathroom from Penn ;)
