Nice they had alternative milk options. Coffee roast was nice and not burnt like SB. The clothes were spendy but trendy and fund to look at.

The place had a delicious breakfast menu. The Redwood sandwich was to die for. They make the chai better than either Starbucks or Panera. Would highly recommend this place to people wanting a nice meal.

Nice little coffee shop. Coffee was not bad, kronuts are delicious! Strange to have apparel for sale as well but it lent to the atmosphere well in my opinion. I had a meet up here with a friend and thought this was a great spot.

In a city where it is hard to get a good coffee (read, espresso machine, operated by a barista who understands coffee) this little coffee shop is a stand out. It has a small selection of baked goods to enjoy with your coffee. It's a...More

On Walnut in the heart of UPenn/Drexel, UBB serves excellent coffee and the now ubiquitous "goods with a purpose." A portion of the proceeds from the sale of goods go towards environmental clean-up. In some ways, I'd prefer a buck off the price of a...More
