On April 14th the Swedish Espresso bar Konditori opened it's first coffee shop in Philadelphia. Just off Chestnut on 17th Street in Center City you will find a little bit of Sweden. This simple store is full of flavors, from exquisite pastries to great bagels and of course Konditori's own coffee beans. Konditori has already seven Espresso bars in New York, the city where Konditori was established in 2010.
So the next time your are in the Rittenhouse area and are craving an iced coffee on a warm spring day, Konditori is a great place to visit.
