The Monkey & The Elephant in Brewerytown supports and employs people who grew up in the foster system. That in itself might convince you to get your bean water here rather than any of the other coffee shops in Philly, but they also have a quiet loft upstairs that’s always empty and a great back patio.

Elixr Coffee Roasters
Elixr’s huge coffee roastery in Callowhill is a great place to get work done, especially after doing one of their “coffee omakases.”
