Came here with friends after the 9th St. Italian Festival for coffee. What a friendly and lovely place. Sampled the espresso.....the real thing, for sure, and had a cappuccino. Friends had assorted teas and coffees with cannoli to die for. What a great spot.

We were fortunate enough that Rene, the owner was putting on a show for everyone! He made us the most amazing hot chocolate beverage and entertained us. The Cubano Espresso & Volcano were delicious!

VERY good chocolate drinks, coffee, cannoli and treats. The owner is very friendly and puts on a great presentation during the preparation of the drinks. A little on the expensive side but it is a great cafe and I will certainly return.

This is a tiny place devoted to coffee and chocolate (and cannolis). The owner is an absolute character and will give you free tastes and insights into his amazing concoctions. Cannolis are a highlight of any food trip to philly and I promise you these...More
