Stopped at La Columbe Coffee after a stroll around Rittenhouse Square. Both the location of the café and the coffee are great. I especially like the fancy, burgundy ceramic cup that the coffee comes in. it is so artsy.

Whether you're downtown checking out City Hall and shopping, or hanging out in Fishtown, you have to stop in to La Colombe. This was my go-to place when I lived in the city. Their newest spot in Fishtown, my old stomping grounds, is just what you'd expect from the funky, hip little town. This is the place where I first... More

This is the best coffee house - the sound of the spoons clattering on the saucer remind you of being in Italy. The barrista is so great - the only person I felt like talking to in Philadelphia - he was quite funny. OK - the coffee is insanely good and worth a stop on your way from DC to... More

Friendly staff, great pastries and tarts, and a cozy atmosphere to enjoy a morning coffee. The cafe is located a few steps away from Ritterhouse Square.

Went with a friend who lives across the street... and have never been to any location before - even in my hometown. Great quality coffee and maybe THE longest line I've seen in a coffee shop and nobody walked out. Various locations around the city, but this location had a small, neighborhoody feel.

If you like good coffee, you'll probably get your fix here! They also have interesting tea selection and pastries.

There are coffeeshops and there are cafés. And now there is La Colombe in Bryn Mawr, a cousin of Philadelphia’s long-time establishment by the same name. It is a spacious place in a rebuilt garage near an active fire station with a small shopping area and ample parking next door. Large windows face the street and the usual small tables... More

I love this place so much! The coffee is amazing, I tried their draft latte and it did not disappoint! The atmosphere is very chill, super cute interior and the staff seems like they love their jobs! Do yourself a favor and grab a coffee from them! Starbucks who?

I first learned of La Colombe while watching the owner Todd Carmichael travel the world on the tv show Dangerous Grounds. Besides the wild adventures and stories, his descriptions of the coffees he tried made my mouth water. For the first time on a couple years I was finally close enough to the Rittenhouse Square location to try some. I... More
