    Absolutely do not enter the starbucks on south street. The espresso here is of course just way way better. The bonus is that the cafe is also a very spacious & quiet place with friendly staff.

    Cash only. $10 minimum. Other than that...damn, this is a good place to chat with a friend over coffee. Staff is super friendly too. My go-to place whenever I'm back in Philly.

    Most comfy chairs in a cafe ever for studying. If u have a back problem like I do and can't sit on a hard chair for hours, this is the place to go!

    This place has a great, cozy atmosphere! Stop in to try the vegan wrap and play some scrabble on cold chilly day!

    The turkey and Swiss sandwich is way more interesting and delicious than the name suggests. Eat it!

    The further into the belly of the café you venture, the more like a library it becomes and the more silence becomes the predominant etiquette.

    The art was amazing, as were the lattes. Plus plenty of space on a Saturday night.
