The croissants were perfect, the coffee was a bit too acidic and burned tasting for us.

Delicious coffee in casual setting. Artistic pouring of coffee and milk in capuccinos combines into visual design.

Had great latte's and cap's while in Philly. Ambience, service, and pastries were also very good.

There are many cafes in NYC with good coffee and I find this one in TriBeCa to be my favorite because of the size of the seating area and lack of crowd compared to the other two La Colombe cafes in the city. The coffee is always good -- strong, smooth and flavorful.

And they will sell it to you for only $1.50. Take THAT, Starbucks. Plus, everything's organic/fair trade/blah blah blah, so you don't even have to feel guilty about enjoying it!

This place is the evolution of what a coffeehouse should be. I love their americano and mineral water on tap all at prices that beat DD or other chains that serve 'coffee'

We loved the coffee here so much during our visit to Philadelphia, that we have been ordering it via mail since our return. We are big coffee drinkers and feel that we found a real find!

As an unabashed coffee snob I have struggled to find great coffee in North America (with respect to espresso based drinks). Not only were the staff very friendly and efficient but they knew what a flat white was (yippee!) and they made it well. It was the perfect drink before my exam. The muffins and baked goods were delicious.
