    A definite stop for visitors staying in Center City. It is within walking distance of many hotels and historical sights. $2 for drip coffee. Friendly baristas! Sit in or take a cup to go and explore.

    No menu but don't be intimidated, the baristas are super helpful and friendly. If all else fails, order a cappuccino, it's the best in the City.

    Great pastries! I normally don't enjoy pastries at coffee shops but the cheese Danish and cinnamon roll was yummy. And of course awesome lattes

    Baristas friendly and knowledgable. I like the iced red eye or blue bottle cold brew on draft! Long lines, esp around 8/9 but worth it and the lines move fast !

    Much like Anthony Bourdain, I fell in love with this place at first sip. Get the bottled cold brew black coffee, it's quite exquisite!

    It's the best coffee around. You can count on constancy of flavor and service. If you don't like milk or can't drink it... The coffee is good black or with sugar. Life is as simple as you make it.

    Free sparkling water from the tap at the end of the counter! Gold star just for that! (Coffee is served beautifully too, although it's a bit weak.)

    You want soy milk, almond milk, rice milk? Starbucks is up the street. This is authentic Italian espresso and cappuccino. It ranks up there with cafes in Trieste and Florence. È solo un buon caffè!
