Breakfast for two-eggs, bison sausage, grilled tomatoes and toast. I like my food hot. Not spicy hot but hot off the grill or stove. Goes the same for toast. Like to taste the melted butter. Good for egg yolk dipping. Sausage today was juicy,hot and...More

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.

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
