A great place to meet locals and get connected to the community,often times good musicians around and poets and artists alike. A 215 friendly area you can really see hometown for what it is here

Blueberry Crisp Bar was very good! Very strong blueberry taste and a generous serving. Other desserts looked equally good!

This place needs a good scrub. The drinks are okay. The crowd is not my taste. If you are looking for good coffee then go to The Curly Wolf.

the coffee was good and the pastries were off the charts good. I didn't like the cigarette smell from illegal smokers out front.

We stopped here for coffee in a quiet cafe. The place is very atmospheric and fun. There are lots of comfortable chairs, interesting decor, and a piano. We had coffee, expresso, and nice conversation away from the hustle. All was good.
