La Colombe

La Colombe Coffee Roasters is a popular name for many. With locations in New York, Washing DC, Chicago and Philly, this gorgeous, French inspired café is one you cannot miss! They serve coffee, tea, breakfast and brunch food.

Alan and I went to the Rittenhouse Square location. For a tourist like me, the café was perfectly situated and just steps away from all the other touristy things I had on my itinerary! As soon as we walked in we were greeted with the longest line up ever - I immediately knew the wait would be worth it!

The café was large and spacious inside but still perfectly cozy. They had the coolest industrial design on the inside with gorgeous décor. The tables even matched the cups and saucers.

This was the first time I had seen cold brews available on tap! They had draft lattés, pure black, and black & tan. I will definitely try one of these next time I'm visiting on a hot summer day! I had a delicious latté and Alan had a cappuccino. Their pastries looks amazing as well but we had just finished a delicious and healthy breakfast so I didn't want to ruin that!

La Colombe was not the cheapest place, it was probably equal to Starbucks in my opinion, but I think it's worth it to support local businesses. I loved having a moment of quiet to just sit down and enjoy my coffee with Alan before a very busy (but fun) moving day.
