Practically a force of nature in Philadelphia, La Colombe coffee can be found in a slew of restaurants—and even markets selling cans of its well-regarded “draft lattes.” But if you want the full experience, step into the shop’s cavernous marquee location in Fishtown, where you’ll grab the signature coffee (a medium-to-dark roast) neatly served up with a dainty cup of cream and sugar cube on a plate—made better in the context of the space’s hanging globe lights and coffee-themed art. La Colombe doesn’t just do affordable luxury; it perfects it. Only catch: no Wi-Fi, so laptop toters should steer clear.
