  • Coffee is good and service is always excellent! For a quick coffee on the run.
  • Great staff and yummy chai tea latte. Customer service is awesome!
  • Awesome upgrade with the new construction. Have a mini-crush on the morning cashier girl, who is genuinely the nicest person you'll ever meet. Great service all around and very happy about this new classy addition to 30th Street.

  • Nice to have a real coffee place at 30th St Station now!

Where to stay in Philadelphia
