Manayunk's outpost of the creme de la creme of the espresso set.. In Short Located alongside Main Street's snazzy boutiques, this cafe gets its fair hare of the beautiful people through its glass door. There are Fima Deruta cups and saucers, a mahogany bar, bistro chairs and a changing collection of local art. There's a daily selection of light sandwiches: smoked salmon, jambon and gruyere, tuna or veggie, served on freshly baked Italian rolls. You'll also get the standard croissants, danish, muffins and biscotti, while they last.
La Columbe Coffee.
I never liked coffee. I've given my money to the Starbucks corporation. I've even tried to brew my own coffee. I heard about La Columbe Panini and gave it a try. I ordered a Double Mocha and after a few teaspoons of sugar (without the medicine going down), I was in love. Each sip of my coffee was delicious, flavorful. Not watery at all. La Columbe Panini doesn't have massive couches, but it was cute with the mosaic-like tables along the windows and wooden chairs. People mingle with each other, students read over their textbooks and notes ... all while enjoying delicious cups of Columbe coffee. I quickly became a regular. La Columbe Panini is the best Manayunk coffee shop!
