Great coffee and sweets.

When you think of a coffee house you usually don't think passion. But this little cozy get away in the heart of Philly is filled with love. The owner is a proud new father and you can see the heart he puts into his dream come true. All the pasties and dessert are delicious and the coffee and tea... read more

Just walking around the gay neighborhood in Philly and came upon to this cute coffee place accidentally. Their coffee is extremely good. And their chocolate chip cookie was simply delicious. And the cost was extremely good. Love it!

We stumbled upon this coffee shop while on vacation from Minneapolis, MN. It is such a cute little place. We didn't know what to order but the staff gave excellent recommendations. We tried their chocolate banana nut bread (this is their specialty baked good), it was so moist and chocolaty. What was really special to us was the M&M blondie.... More

This coffee shop is located in an interesting area of the city. A community garden is right outside the building so when you sit in the cafe, it's like you are in a beautiful secret garden. The coffee is sooo good. We also loved the chia latte. And the chocolate chip cookies, blueberry crumble cake, and peach cake were something... More

Bypass the sterility & officiousness of Starbucks & instead try this tiny charming café w/ colorful décor, including hand-painted tables & chairs, that provides a chance to sit back, catch your breath & smell the coffee. Service is cordial & the usual coffee house menu is satisfying & sensibly priced.

This is a small bakery/cafe that specializes in sweet pastries and coffee beverages. They also serve a fried bacon and egg sandwich that I enjoy and have a limited soup/sandwich menu at lunch or whenever. Dan, the owner/manager is a friendly, hard working guy who seems to get along with everyone. The other staff are all young and enthusiastic about... More

After a long day of exploring the city, we stumbled across this place. We were in the mood for something sweet and perhaps a hot beverage. There were homemade baked fare to chose from, as a variety of gelato and hot/cold drinks. I was amused by the server's response when I asked for a macchiato. He showed me the size... More

This ice cream type store is probably a great stop on a date following a movie or whatever daters do now. Very limited selection of ice cream, which is what I was looking for, but unusual combinations of cake and ice cream and other treats.

Came in looking for cupcakes since it was on their menu but was bummed out that they actually don't sell them :( I bought a redvelvet cake and was thoroughly impressed with their frosting! Also had a cappuccino and it was very well made!

This is an outstanding place to visit for a little something sweet as one can continue to walk around a historic American city. Perfect location and great little sweets for anyone to enjoy
