When you need the perfect morning pick-me-up to ready yourself for the day ahead, then great coffee is your answer. Read on for our guide to the best coffee shops you’ll find in Philly.
- Rival Bros
These stylish coffee bars were founded by Philadelphia natives and lifelong friends Jonathan Adams and Damien Pileggi and offer a selection of house-roasted blends and single-origin beans selected by expert roaster Damian. The coffee bars feature stripped-back, industrial chic décor and serve traditional drip coffees as well as espresso-based beverages all using beans specially roasted daily in the Rival Bros. own Frankford area roastery. If you can’t get enough of the coffee here, you can even pick up a bag of their beans to brew yourself at home or back in the office.
- La Colombe
There are 5 La Colombe locations to choose from across the city, so coffee-lovers can enjoy the exceptional beverages that have been served up to Philly’s discerning coffee lovers for the past 20 years, no matter what area they might find themselves in. The Fishtown flagship is well worth a visit if you can – the former warehouse space is large and open, with soaring ceilings and a buzzing atmosphere around the clock. Check back later in the day to sample their special coffee-infused craft rum for an extra kick with your caffeine!

A bustling, hip space that is perfect for catching up on some work while sipping on truly exquisite artisan coffee.

This trendy South Philly favorite runs a completely vegan menu, offering coffee served up with every type of non-dairy milk you can imagine, including coconut, almond, soy, and rice. They also serve an inventive selection of vegan sandwiches, donuts, and pastries that have turned this local spot into a hit destination for the city’s coffee lovers and foodies alike.
Visit ReAnimator’s Kensington location to enjoy a truly unique experience – the entire ground floor is open so coffee aficionados can see the whole roasting process right in front of them as they make their selection.
