It is equally as enjoyable when the cafè you find has a vase of fresh cut flowers and the sweetest arrangement for outdoor seating. It was screaming to me from half a block away when I first caught sight of Green Street.
I think what I liked most about Green Street was the ambience - not so much the coffee itself (which is good, no denying) but rather the context in which I enjoyed the coffee. The leafy green trees lining Spruce St. provided the perfect amount of shade, while the cafe provided the perfect table setting. I wish I could go back here and bring a couple of friends, just to sit for hours on end. The latte is a little pricey at $4, but definitely made by an expert hand. The coffee is roasted locally, too, which makes it even more appealing - the entire Green Street operation is a neighborhood enterprise. Philly made? I like it.
notes from the coffee diary:
- smoky linger and "durable" foam
- rich and bold. seems to be on the darker side.
- sweetened with 2 packets stevia.
- cafe atmosphere is bright, airy. love the lively decor.
