The Ultimate...Ultimo

On a recent trip to Philadelphia, we made it a point to visit Ultimo Coffee, which was named "America's Best Coffee Shop" by USA Today.  In my opinion, there is no way to declare one coffee shop "the best" because there are just too many variables, and it depends a lot on what you want in a coffee shop.  That being said, I can see why someone would put Ultimo at the top of their list.

Ultimo's location is easy to access, but off the main drag enough that you feel like you are in a true neighborhood coffee shop.  They serve Counter Culture Coffee, which is one of my faves.  The baristas were perfectly tattooed and disheveled looking.  And, most of all, I appreciate that the place smelled strongly of coffee.  Even though they share space with Brew, coffee is the clear star of the show.  Is it the best in America?  That depends, but I'd say, if you're in Philadelphia, it's definitely worth a visit.
