My 4 Favorite Coffee Spots in Philly

Coffee dates are one of my favorite ways to catch up with girlfriends, meet with fellow entrepreneurs, and enjoy lazy weekend mornings. There are so many cool places to grab coffee in Philly that it was hard to narrow it down, but these four spots are ones that I frequent (or wish I did)!


La Colombe Fishtown*

1335 Frankford Avenue, Philadelphia

We shot part of our F/W '15 campaign here because I fell in love with the marquis lights, but the coffee at La Colombe is as amazing as the atmosphere. It's is a great spot to grab a delicious latte (they'll even fulfill a request for the prettiest drink on the menu & not think you're crazy). Not near Fishtown? They have two center city locations, too.

Plenty Café

1602 Spruce Street, Philadelphia

Plenty was right around the corner from our last apartment, so I was there all the time for meetings and my morning coffee. They have just about every delicious iced and hot coffee drink you could ever want, indoor and outdoor seating (when weather permits), and a fresh, locally sourced menu full of delicious sandwiches, salads (& brunch on weekends).


227 S. 18th Street, Philadelphia

With a location right on Rittenhouse Square, you can't beat Parc for coffee with a side of people watching. Parc is also one of my favorite places to grab cocktails and Sunday brunch; just be sure to grab a seat at one of the outdoor café tables if you can – those are the best seats in the house!                                                                                            

Elixr Café*

207 S. Sydenham Street, Philadelphia

Elixr is a great spot for a relaxed coffee date or working the day away. The café has a chill, rustic/industrial vibe and specializes in unique roasted coffees with interesting flavors (think cold brewed iced coffee with chocolate and caramel undertones).

WEEK/END Playlist

Hello Halloween weekend! We're having a little costume/birthday party this weekend, and I can't wait to have my favorite people all in one place. We've been moving around (literally) for the past few months and I'm so excited to finally settle in and host our first party in our new place. Whether you're hosting a fête or just cozying up inside for the weekend, here are some of my favorite new songs to add to your weekend playlist.

Whatever you do, I hope you have a fun, festive weekend!

Wardrobe/Wish List No.1

I thought it would be cool to occasionally feature a few of my favorite must-have products from my wardrobe & wish list. My overall wardrobe doesn't change much throughout the year (I love my paired down, polished classics and wear denim year-round), but I usually invest in a few new accessories to spruce things up each season. A few of my current favorites:
