Joe Coffee Now Serving Coffee, Lattes and Muffins on Rittenhouse Square

Manager Amy Hettemer and co-founder Jonathan Rubinstein
The sun is shining, which means Joe Coffee’s four umbrella-shaded tables along Walnut Street - all with a grand view of Rittenhouse Square - are already filled with people. Today is opening day for the NYC import (see our interview with founder Jonathan Rubinstein here).

Rubinstein was in Philly today, checking on the flow of the space and chatting with manager Amy Hattemer, who was also supervising the immediately busy espresso spouts. (He also managed to score himself a dozen Federal Donuts fancies - he pronounced the chocolate peanut butter “weird, but good” - and several variations of chicken.)

While the cafe’s full complement of coffee drinks is ready to go (from espresso to cortado to latte to pour over), the pastries and sandwiches are still being filled out. A small assortment of croissants, scones and muffins was ready for sale when we stopped in. Expect more soon, and also look for the seats in the lobby of the office building next door (215-278-2454).
