Met a friend here for bfast. Limited menu, but good food. Good coffee. You order and take food to a table. Nice to sit outside. Had oatmeal which was good.

I always like supporting Gryphon Cafe. They are a great neighborhood spot with plentiful sandwiches and good pastries. Today at the end of the day, my coffee was just ok. But I will go back.

Warm and relaxed atmosphere, genuinely friendly and attentive service, excellent granola, very good cappuccino and not too noisy - what more could one want? Highly recommended!

Nice place for soup and/or sandwich. Cozy New Age atmosphere. Cheerful counter employees. Lavendar lemonade is a quirky summer beverage.

Real food in a surprisingly down-to-earth, mellow cafe in this Philly suburb. Fresh, healthy and delicious. A good place to park yourself with your laptop for the afternoon.
