If you live in or around Philadelphia chances are you have heard of La Colombe Coffee. Since 1994, La Colombe Torrefaction stickers have been popping up on the storefront windows of countless cafes, popular brunch spaces and fine dining establishments throughout Philadelphia and New York, showcasing to the world that these spaces serve the ever-popular beans!

Along with an expansion across the U.S, La Colombe Torrefaction recently opened a new Flagship cafe in September 2014 in the Fishtown neighborhood of Philadelphia. The massive café is home to offices, a tasting room, a bakery, roasting facilities, and a rum distillery. This converted warehouse is 11,000 square feet of jaw dropping beauty!

La Colombe Fishtown has a beautiful atmosphere and we’ve found it to be a great place to draw inspiration. We have our eyes set on this space for one of our (fingers crossed) near future events. The space looks deceiving from the outside, but you are quickly reminded of its grandeur upon entrance where you are greeted with an enormous marquee sign that reads, La Colombe.

The barista bar is clean and simple with a black splash of chalkboard menus and white tile. A big and beautiful brick oven holds its presence behind the barista station and adds to the industrial elements throughout the space. A large Stephen “ESPO” Powers mural blankets the longest wall in the cafe and is align with intimate booth seating. The cafe has plenty of cozy and communal spaces for socializing along with a stand up bar where guests can sip beverages and chat.
