  • Old City Coffee

    I Love This Place!!

    I've been coming here for years and Old City never fails to deliver exactly what I want. A real cup of coffee in a comfortable, light space. I order two shots of espresso over ice and often accompany with a toasted bagel and cream cheese with a slice of tomato. This order, plus my copy of the Times, on a Sunday at about 2:00 pm is often the highlight of my weekend.

    Subpar Beverages and Costly Baked Goods

    I used to buy Old City Coffee blends at the Reading Terminal Market as their roasts were superb. But on two recent visits to the Old City Coffee on Church Street the experience was far below par. On the first visit I purchased an iced coffee from the fountain bubbling thing which was bland and watery. I also had a bagel which was stale. I figured it was just an off day as some places do have. The most recent visit was just as disappointed. We ordered two Americanos which tasted of nothing. The barista had clearly added too much water the espresso and I left 2/3rd of the drink. Their bakery items are mediocre at best and extremely overpriced. Their scones are $4.85 and are barely 2X3x1/4 inches. I ordered a Cranberry Muffin to split with my partner and when I asked if it had nuts cause he has a nut allergy the barista answered it has millet. My partner asked what was millet and I responded that its birdseed which it is. It is also a grain which I haven’t seen in muffins very often but I asked again if it had nuts. The barista responded “why do you have to be so negative?” I repeated the inquiry again and said I wasn’t being negative just stating facts: millet is the major component of most birdseed and $4.85 for a paper thin scone is outrageous. I fear that Old City may be on its last legs if it doesn’t improve its service, price its goods more competitively and make a decent drink.
