philadelphia in the morning; espresso at la colombe

I spent a few hours in Philly just before Christmas before catching a greyhound bus to New York.

 I walked by old city coffee, but I wanted coffee at la colombe.

Espresso at the Dilworth Plaza La Colombe.  I was surprised that they offer both single and doubles – I got a single.  It tasted of a pretty dark roast with not as much flavor as I am snobbily accustomed to.

 

nice interior, though not particularly unique.  I was happy to just be enjoying a moment in Philly.

 

City hall and William Penn’s backside.  This was the world’s tallest building for 7 years from 1901 to 1908!
