Criminally Caffeinated

If you asked most I’m sure they would see my coffee consumption as a crime of sorts, which makes Mugshots a perfect accomplice.  Not only does the café have a fantastic ambience (winning AOL’s City’s Best Coffee Shop), amazing food (City Paper’s #3 burrito), and great coffee, but like a super model tree-hugger, it has much more than first suspected.  The fair trade café uses wind power, biodegradable materials, and even composts accumulated waste.  The locally sourced menu of soups, salads, and sandwiches is a great asset to a rushed morning, even if it requires a bit of a splurge. 

If you prefer to eat at home, the local food buying club run from the Manayunk location, brings community supported agriculture to the area without the commitment or expense of CSA shares.
