This cafe’s title is similar to “elixir,” and we can say that yes – their drinks 100% feel like magical potions which heal you and warm your heart. Elixr’s story starts in 2011, when a group of enthusiasts stepped onto the path of the coffee business, and we, their clients, can see the result today. The cafe’s staff is quick, attentive, and likable, and when you look at the menu, it feels as if you are at the gates of a coffee lover’s paradise:
- Strawberry Matcha Latte;
- Cold Brew Iced Coffee;
- Dirty Chai Lattes;
- Oat Milk Latte;
- Drip Coffee.
They say the ambiance plays a significant role in every food institution, and Elixr does the job well: the interior is eye-catching, the sofas are comfy, and pleasant music plays in the background. You can enjoy it all straight after arriving at the PHL, and if you rent a car or take a taxi, the road will take around 30 minutes.
An exceptional roaster operates in the Kensington neighborhood, offering patrons Vietnamese-inspired coffee. Every drop of their drinks conveys the traditions not only from the country itself but from the other regions of East Asia! The workers of the cafe use beans native to the Pa Miang and Lam Dom regions, which are in Thailand and Vietnam, respectively. Through the dedication and labor of workers, the beans transform into some of these rich-in-flavor drinks:
- PhaT Xỉu;
- Vietnamese Latte;
- Cà Phê Sữa;
- Egg Coffee.
The cafe is spacious and comfortable, serving as a perfect spot for studying and working, so come every day from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm (except Tuesdays). If you plan to visit and travel to other places afterward, consider booking a van rental in Philadelphia from the PHL Airport. With a comfy 7-seater, the road will take less than an hour, you will avoid crowded mass transit or expensive taxis.
