8 Bakeries in Philly That Will Replace Your Coffee Shop Hang

They really like matcha at this bustling Asian/French spot. It’s in pretty much everything, from the green cappuccinos to the mille crepe cake. 145 North 11th Street, Chinatown.

Opera cakes adorned with gold leaf? In Pennsport? You betcha. Armando Tapia’s cafe does the tartlet better than some of Rittenhouse’s poshest bakeries. Plus: colorful meringues, textbook éclairs, and plenty of seating to take in the aromas. 1800 South 4th Street, Pennsport.

French-born brothers Joseph and Antoine Amrani worked at Le Bec-Fin when Perrier had the tallest toque in town. Now they’ve resurfaced, with a sleek cafe complete with artisan chocolates and delicate macarons. 7 Station Avenue, Ardmore.

It’s bright, colorful and friendly, which is why Fishtowners camp out here for hours. And then there’s the monkey bread, the brownies, that Double Dank cake. Okay, scratch that; that’s actually why people stay. 1306 Frankford Avenue, Fishtown.

If you’ve only had the egg sandwich, you haven’t really experienced HP. In the mornings, the bar is set with an inimitable daily lineup of peach financiers, buttermilk biscuits and ham-and-cheese croissants. 743 South 4th Street, Queen Village.

Macarons with your morning coffee? Oui. And at ICI, France’s most delicate export is as it should be: dainty, tasty and easy on the eyes. 230 Arch Street, Old City
