Typically, you stop at the spot closest to Rittenhouse Claridge to enjoy your morning coffee. However, if you're thinking about expanding your horizons, consider visiting these independent coffee houses in Philadelphia:
One Shot Coffee & Cafe
The environment here is just as warm as the cup of coffee you'll enjoy. The vintage furniture, rustic wood, and bookshelves that stretch from floor to ceiling promote a relaxing and welcoming vibe. The coffee of choice here is Portland's Stumptown Coffee, which is considered by many as the best in the world. Local roasters such as Rival Bros. and ReAnimator also have a place at One Shot Coffee & Cafe.
Old City Coffee
The prices here are low, but the quality remains top-notch. In fact, Old City Coffee brews only high-grown Arabic beans in small batches. Stop by in the evening and enjoy a live musical performance while sipping on your coffee.
La Colombe Coffee
La Colombe doesn't feature all of the bells and whistles. It's the coffee here that's the star of the show. Enjoy reserve and fair-trade classic coffee blends from around the world.
