Old City Coffee – Reading Terminal Market ★★★★

The frenzy of the market could be felt before stepping through the door! Hubby and I were enjoying a day in Philly so I decided to check out this popular place and all it had to offer. Hoping to find a hidden gem in this vast place for a great cup of joe, I found that very thing.

On a corner aisle I found, Old City Coffee. The line wrapped around the booth, but I didn’t care, I was here and was not going to miss out! The girl behind the counter was super helpful and knowledgable as I selected some beans to enjoy at home. I learned they take roasting very seriously here, only roasting in small batches so the beans are always fresh. The black coffee I tasted that day mimicked that freshness and it was worth every minute I waited. My coffee was full bodied, smooth and left you wanting more!

What a sweet treasure I discovered in the heart of this busy market place.  I loved that fact that you could even pick up a Chemex maker to pair with the great variety of roasts they had to offer.

We enjoyed the market that day, while enjoying a great cup of coffee!
