Capital One is copying ING Direct and opening a bank-slash-coffee shop in Rittenhouse

This is what retail banking in the 21st century will look like as Capital One Cafe’s new space in Center City debuts this spring on two levels of the old Latham Hotel at 135 S. 17th St. in Rittenhouse Square.

Capital One’s first Philadelphia cafe opened in 2001 at 1636 Walnut St. with 1,950 square feet on the ground level,  nowhere near the scope of what...

Top locations are key, said Gorman, who brokered the deal. Although there is some flexibility in neighborhoods, he said, “they want A-plus retail locations in dense urban cores with a high volume of pedestrian traffic. The location at 17th and Walnut certainly checks all those boxes.”

    Capital One Cafe plies you with coffee and pastry while selling you services
    Imagine entering a spacious room with tables and chairs and being served coffee or pastry while an "ambassador" greets you to discuss your finances. This place isn't a restaurant or Starbucks - though it has elements of both.
