    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.

    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.)

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Gotta love this place. One of the first cafés I discovered in Philly. Amazing coffee, good vibe+music. Lovely staff. I work here often. Love its laid back atmosphere and cool wall murals.

    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!

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

    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 ;)

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

    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.”
