1701 Locust Street, Rittenhouse Square
What I Got: Avocado Smash Toast, Brekkie Board, Golden Latte (Tumeric blend with almond milk topped with cinnamon)
What I Thought: This Aussie-launched cafe is like stepping into a beachy locale. Its blue hues and bright whites create a welcoming aura, the perfect place to meet up with friends or enjoy a quiet cup of coffee in solitude. The food and coffee are both excellent. They also have a variety of cold-pressed juices.
What I Want: Wellness Flight (tumeric latte, matcha latte, beetroot latte)
Little Spoon Café
1500 South Street, South Street West
What I Got: Vietnamese Iced Coffee and Kale with Chicken Salad
What I Thought: I love Vietnamese iced coffee. This did not disappoint (also because it’s served in a mason jar, and anyone who knows me understands how much I love them). As far as the salad, HUGE portions. I could split it into two meals. The interior vibes are cozy and cute; you will want to make a reservation on a weekend.
What I Want: Also recommended by others are the shakshuka (baked eggs in spicy pepper tomato sauce) and cheddar chive pancakes. If you’re into drinks, they also offer BYO mimosas, Bloody Marys, and bellinis (you bring the alcohol, they provide the rest).
I’d love to hear the places I should try next! Shoot me an e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
