Morris Hotel serves up delicious gluten free banana bread from this bakery. I had to have a whole loaf, so we scouted it out. This is the tastiest, moistest gluten free bread I've ever had. The staff is friendly, too. If you're in Philly and gluten free, stop by. They also have abundant offerings for gluten lovers.

We were really hungry for dessert and located Cake & the Beanstalk on google. Mistake #1. Walking in, the girl at the counter was semi-rude asking if we were there for some art thing, which we were not. There was no sign outside to indicate they were closed. We asked to grab something out of the cooler and take it... More

This a great little hidden gem for dessert. I always enjoy their great ice cream. Many of the baked goods are not the best though. Coffee is tasty and the service is friendly…but you will really like the ice cream!

I visited based on good yelp reviews. The coffee drinks were outstanding. The place has a great atmosphere, comfortable seating and nice crowd. the service was excellent and enthusiastic. The food was good--not great--but we kind of made healthy choices--so that's what you get when you skip the croissant! I definitely recommend this hip spot.

When you think of a coffee house you usually don't think passion. But this little cozy get away in the heart of Philly is filled with love. The owner is a proud new father and you can see the heart he puts into his dream come true. All the pasties and dessert are delicious and the coffee and tea selection... More

Just walking around the gay neighborhood in Philly and came upon to this cute coffee place accidentally. Their coffee is extremely good. And their chocolate chip cookie was simply delicious. And the cost was extremely good. Love it!

We stumbled upon this coffee shop while on vacation from Minneapolis, MN. It is such a cute little place. We didn't know what to order but the staff gave excellent recommendations. We tried their chocolate banana nut bread (this is their specialty baked good), it was so moist and chocolaty. What was really special to us was the M&M blondie.... More

This coffee shop is located in an interesting area of the city. A community garden is right outside the building so when you sit in the cafe, it's like you are in a beautiful secret garden. The coffee is sooo good. We also loved the chia latte. And the chocolate chip cookies, blueberry crumble cake, and peach cake were something... More

Bypass the sterility & officiousness of Starbucks & instead try this tiny charming café w/ colorful décor, including hand-painted tables & chairs, that provides a chance to sit back, catch your breath & smell the coffee. Service is cordial & the usual coffee house menu is satisfying & sensibly priced.
