Just across from the Eastern State Penitentiary, Mugshots is a classic neighborhood coffeehouse. It’s a great place to stop for coffee, lunch, or a snack from the tasty menu of salads, sandwiches, wraps, and baked goods.
It’s the perfect spot to read, study, chat, or go online (they have WiFi and one computer available to the public with a 15-minute suggested time limit).
In addition, the environmentally and socially conscious business only serves fair-trade, organic coffees, supports local farms, and recycles absolutely everything they can.
Check out the additional location in Manayunk just off Main Street (110 Cotton St., 215/482-3964, Mon.–Fri. 6:30 a.m.–4 p.m., Sat.–Sun. 8 a.m.–4 p.m.).
