    Wanted to get the Thai iced coffee I kept hearing about; got the Nirvana (espresso over coconut water) instead. Not mad though. 😏

    I had a great Coffee and a Chicken Salad Sandwich. The eclectic artwork combined with the books to borrow and an array of interesting magazines assure you that your time will be well spent and enjoyed

    Get the lox and cream cheese bagel with lettuce, tomato, onion, and capers. Closest you'll ever get to being a New York Jew.

    Amid the well-documented Shepard Fairey mural, thrift-store furnishings and vegan snacks at Fishtown’s Rocket Cat Café is a worthy fair-trade espresso roasted by Norristown’s Fonseca.
