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.

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

Nice Venu. Average pastries. Can't warm a pastry or ham n cheese croissant. Self serve soda is a plus. Why do I have to meet a character requirement.

I've always enjoyed La Colombe coffee and get some whenever I can but with a visit to Philadelphia recently I was able to stop in at two different locations. This location was OUTSTANDING in every way! Not only was the coffee (lattes) excellent but the young ladies I dealt with who worked behind the counter were a pleasure to deal... More
