Coffee shops near 6th & South St.?

I have to meet an acquaintance near this area in the early afternoon. I'd prefer not to go to Starbucks. Does anyone know of any good independent coffee shops in the area? If not a coffee shop, someplace else where it's easy to sit and talk? Thanks!

  1. Phila Java Co. 4th bet South and Lombard, Red Hook 4th and Catherine, the Bean Cafe 600 Block of South are a couple of nice spots.

    1. Cafe Fulya is on 2nd Street at Monroe (about 1-2 blocks south of South) or there is a coffee shop on 9th St between South and Bainbridge that's gotten good reviews. I'll see if I can find the name.

          1. My husband is a fan of the Bean Exchange at 7th & Bainbridge.

            1. Anthony's Italian coffee house is not far, at 9th and Christian.
