Third wave this, single origin that...there's just too much information to process in all these new-fangled coffeehouses, right? Well, what that kinda attitude, you may as well suck down Dunkin' for the rest of your days. Philly is filled with incredible cafes, and the ones in this guide have the distinction of being friendly and down-to-earth. Don't be afraid to ask questions. Oh, and grab us a red eye?
Love the granita here in the summertime. So refreshing
Their iced coffee is great but you should also check out the pre-bottled cold brew they have from Green Street Roasters. It's STRONG.
Bodhi just has a difficult-to-codify that extends beyond the well-brewed Stumptown. A lot of it has to do with the most down-to-earth and knowledgable baristas around.
Don't object when you order a double espresso and receive a single — it's a ristretto shot, a short pull that's remarkably full in flavor.
Nook's housemade baked goods are unreal good, a real cut above many coffee shops' eating options.
Cute Fishtown cafe with friendly service, great coffee and a nice vegetarian-friendly food selection.
They reserve high-quality coffee for brewing via a special AeroPress gadget — basically a giant coffee syringe. Not as weird as it sounds.
