Where to go to grab a cup of coffee before taking a weekend stroll onto Walnut St. or sitting on a bench in Rittenhouse Square to read a book. I would highly suggest taking a quick diversion onto 19th St. and grabbing a cup of coffee from a cafe that is serious about coffee. There are no muffins or scones at La Colombe, but some chairs, a few tables and people standing in line for simple order of a café au lait, cappuccino or an Americano. The coffee here is so aromatic, and the coffee art truly shows how much of a real coffee house this place is. If you want to study or work on a paper, I would suggest going early and getting one of the tables near the window to be away from the people standing in line. The place can get a little noise.
