The decor of this place is really nice. Its small size is part of what makes it so interesting. They have great coffee and chai tea and offer lots of different options to suit any kind of taste. One of the best coffee shops in the Italian Market.

I found this place by accident wondering through the market. Very friendly staff and sunny and comfortable sitting area. They had few more delicacies but we were not hungry.

This cafe has the best Bagels and coffee that I found in the Italian Market area. The staff are welcoming and helpful, ready to advise a traveller on the specialities needed to try. A small sitting area with an eclectic atmosphere but worth visiting.

What a breakfast bagel! I found this place based on a recommendation for WHOOPIE PIE, which was excellent too by the way, and boy am I glad I found it! A great little stop and worth a trip to, even if you're not visiting the Italian Market.

Nice coffee shop with small delicious bites to eat with coffee/latte. Usually a quiet place to relax with a friend, but has been made famous featured in 'Always Sunny In Philadelphia.'

I love this place. I moved from Philadelphia a few years back and this place is probably what I miss the most! The coffee served is La Colombe. The sandwiches and pastries are great and the Baristas are friendly! I don't get back to Philadelphia much anymore but if I get close, I go out of my way to stop... More

This place was awesome. It fit my needs perfectly. I wanted a quiet and cozy cafe to do some writing, and this place delivered just that. It was tiny but had ample seating. The coffee and tea drink menu was extensive and it had a great pastry selection. My gluten free walnut banana bread was the best banana bread I've... More

The barista was very friendly and made a great impression. The steamer I got was wonderful, and the place is cute and cozy. Looks like they have awesome lunch and breakfast food, too. =) Honestly, the more I looked around the place, the cruder it became (their repeat customer cards have a curse word on them, which I think is...
