The Last Drop
Washington Square West
This sweet little coffee shop is located on the corner of Pine and 13th. The staff is always incredible friendly, and the espresso is smooth and bold. They have a nice variety of flavors to spice up any drink, and also delicious pastries available. This is a great spot to catch up with friends or on work, while sipping on delicious quality coffee.
OCF Coffee House
This hot spot is located in the heart of Fairmount. The staff is super attentive and kind, and the coffee is fantastic. This shop uses La Colombe coffee blends for their espresso, and it does not disappoint. This spot has a large drink menu ranging from coffee, matcha, and teas. The food menu is also delicious and includes many plant-based options. This may be one of my favorite spots in Philly!
Good Karma Cafe
Washington Square West, Rittenhouse, Fitler Square
This cafe has multiple locations around the city, but the quality of coffee is top notch at whichever location you end up at. The staff is very efficient and personable, while making sure your coffee is made to your liking. This cafe offers delicious coffee beverages, as well as many other tea beverages. You can’t go wrong with anything you order!
Bluestone Lane Coffee Shop
Center City, Rittenhouse
This is another hot spot that has a few locations throughout Philly, but the coffee quality is top notch wherever you end up! The coffee blends are authentically made in house, and are perfect for those who need a pep in their step. The taste of the blends are bold and bright. You can buy a coffee of your choice in house or buy some beans for your home. Another brilliant spot and favorite of mine.
Green Street Coffee
Washington Square West, Point Breeze
This sweet little spot is located on 11th and Spruce. The smooth flavor of the coffee beans shine through in any drink you choose to order. This is a great spot to grab a cup of coffee if you’re on the go, or sit with a friend and catch up over delicious latte. This shop sells bags of coffee bean blends in addition to made to order drinks.
