Menagerie offers some well priced drinks, friendly staff, and great air conditioning. The decor is great. Plain and woodsy in feel, there is always enough seating to chat with friends or get some work done. They do offer wifi, however it doesn't always work. The bathroom is the bomb diggity because the interior designer did a pretty good job. Nice spot in Old City, great for a quick grab and go morning brew.

Coffee was okay, service wasn't. The young woman who made my coffee didn't say thank you or smile and there was no rush in the store. I was the only customer. It's okay to have punks as your employees but that doesn't exempt from customer service obligations. Thanks.

I know the owners from way back when. Some of the coolest ladies you could ever hope to meet! Aside from the tasty coffee, solid food, and great atmosphere available at this shop, you should also go because it's local AND woman owned! A rare find. Love Menagerie!

Great place, I went here to study after a haircut in old city. The staff was friendly, the atmosphere was welcoming, and the americano was delicious.

Nice place, but they ignore local coffee roasters, some as good as any in the US, to create a pseudo-hip vibe via beans that are trucked or flown in - hence less eco-friendly, sometimes less fresh, and totally non-supportive of local artisans. In short, meh.

Best coffee in Philly. Regional beans slow dripped. Quaint clean contemporary atmosphere. Essentials include bench style seating and outlets for worker bees.
