About a week ago, I decided to take the train to downtown Philadelphia and visit four of the highest rated coffee shops to see which one serves the best espresso. My plan was to rank them based on their latte’s taste and presentation, customer service, decor, and overall vibe. However, I ended up liking all four of them, but one much more than the others. So I definitely recommend each coffee shop on this list, but if I had to choose my absolute favorite, it would be La Colombe Coffee Roasters. I loved their latte the best and basically everything else- the beautiful design of the cups and tables, great selection of pastries, friendly baristas, light music, and plenty of seating. It’s the perfect place to do work, meet friends or to just be by yourself and people-watch!
