Ultimo Coffee, which has three locations in Philly, is in the camp of “trendy coffee shops.” It’s not elitist or snobby, and it’s actually casual and comfortable inside. Plus, this one in Newbold has a whole wall filled with beer refrigerators, just in case the coffee isn’t cutting it. Maybe switching from caffeine to alcohol will give you the kick you need to keep writing that novel or even just a few emails.
