I truly love this place. At the start of our weekly food shopping trips to Reading Terminal Market, we stop here first. Gotta fuel-up for the counter jockeying at Godshall's, Halteman's and Martin's! If you want beans, try their Reading Blend first. Terrific!

Located the beautiful historic Church Street district in Old City the "Old City Coffee" Shop is always such a quiet place feels like a Library!

Most of the Coffee shops that I frequent are a cacophony of noise but not here in bright ALL white painted coffee shop. The prices are high and there are NO discount or Quantity coffee cards giving out here.

The people who frequent here and Snobby like too. I come when I want to just focus in very hard.

is onI love the atmosphere here all year around, but summer is best when so many people hang out for hours and mingle. Of course that amount of caffeine helps.

First of all, Old City Coffee is on the beautiful historic Church Street in Old City. I love the atmosphere here all year around, but summer is best when so many people hang out for hours and mingle. Of course that amount of caffeine helps.

Ok...so since I am not a coffee drinker, I can't say much about the coffee here, other than the fact that they have many varieties to choose from. What is impressive about Old City is that they do great gift baskets for friends, and are more than willing to make up a basket for you on the spot if you can't find one that suits your needs. Try that one at your local Starbucks!

Coffee, espresso, whole beans. Located in the Reading Terminal, this little shop roasts onsite a large selection of coffees. They also brew drinks. We always stop by when in the area, and have ordered beans online when we're not. Recommended: Balzac Blend.

I like to think of myself as a coffee snob and sometimes get attitude from various barrista's. it reminds me of the early days of "Bigbucks-Starbucks" as the Barrista would often correct one if you used the non-starbucks phraseology {You asked for a small coffee and they would say you would like a Tall coffee}. But, I support local, micro roasters and the coffee is nice at Old City without the bitter,burnt taste like at some other places. So, I recommend Old City, but be wary of the attitudes.

Pros: Good quality

Olde City is, by far, the best coffee in the City. Fresh roasted beans in the Reading Terminal are incredible.

Clientele is diverse, ecclectic, from the bohemian to sophisticated. Service is excellent. Music is varied and ranges from New Age to Neil Young. Just what one expects from this corner of Philadelphia. And coffee -- the best espresso in town.

Old City coffee never fails to deliver a fresh quality cup of coffee. Wireless web and an extra friendly staff is an added bonus!
