Mina’s World is a retail space for local artisans, a community fridge, a meeting place for West Philadelphians. But mainly, it’s a cafe — a coffee shop that serves expert cortados, rose syrup chai lattes, tehina mochas (!), and regular ol’ cups of joe brewed with locally roasted coffee. (Try a plate of pakoras and samosas while you’re at it.) While it’s all these things at once, Mina’s World is, at its heart, a perfect neighborhood coffee shop.
