First Impressions

As I planned my coffee crawl of Philadelphia, I stopped in to Lancaster's Passenger Coffee, and they told me about a new shop they're serving. I figured I'd try to swing in, but didn't know if it'd make the cut. I'm so glad I did. Rally, visually is stunning. The baristas are great, the coffee is on point, and customer service is stellar. The space feels bright and warm, and seems to have been made for the pages of Kinfolk. 

But what's really great for a digital nomad like me, is instead of feeling shamed for needing wifi, these guys encourage it. You can reserve tables for meetings, and even rent out the building for events. A creative agency at heart, the owner had grown tired of never finding open tables at cafes to meet clients or being edged out of coffee shops and spending more time commuting between them than getting work done. Enter Rally, a creative inspiration serving some of my favorite coffees around.
