Though it’s been a year since the crush of morning commuters gave up their office-adjacent coffee shops, the pleasure of being handed a perfectly brewed cup of coffee made by someone else has not diminished. In fact, because so many office workers are isolated in their home offices, the pleasure of even the most quotidian conversation with a barista seems to have grown. Whether you take your coffee black or prefer a creamy latte, these are some of our favorite new spots to treat ourselves to a morning cup.

After Jezabel’s Cafe decamped to West Philly, Eli Shaika and Hugh Morretta scooped up the Fitler Square cafe and opened their coffee shop in 2020. Crowds have begun to gather for their breakfast sandwiches served on house made Philly-style soft pretzels, which is — in short — genius. 2536 Pine Street

Jiggy opened in January of this year with friendly service, an airy vibe, and a variety of vegan pastries from Grind. They use beans from Small Plans, a D.C.-based roaster that focuses on ethically sourced, fair trade beans. 1000 Pine Street

Persimmon Coffeevarious locations
For now, Persimmon is a pop-up, but their limited drops of beans and simple, precise pour-overs, are inspired by the exacting standards and minimal aesthetic of Japanese cafes. Follow along in Instagram to see where they’ll be next.
