Recently, I returned to the states from 5 months of studying abroad in Paris. One of the (many) wonderful aspects of living in Paris as a college student are the multitude of cafes that offer free wifi and a retreat from the bustling city streets.
My friends and I would rotate our preferred cafes before and after classes, feeding our caffeine craving and indulging in the pleasures of a handcrafted cup of coffee. Our ritual café crèmes were what we drew inspiration from while writing our midterm papers; they nursed us back to health after a long night out, and a really good café crème would spark long, somewhat philosophical debates. It’s remarkable what an extremely good cup of coffee can do.
Back now in Philly, I’m lucky to live in another city equally enamored of coffee culture. Philadelphians, like Parisians, are fortunate enough to have many high quality coffee shops to choose from and that list continues to grow every day. Below, I’ve compiled my six pack of the best spots in Philly to grab an exceptional cup of joe in an atmosphere that will deliver a jolt to your creative senses.
